I admit: the first title that popped into my head was The Middleman.

That's damning with the very faintest of praise. How are you going to induce the studio to throw good money after bad?

Huh?

What's damning? TNT cancelled the show, before a single episode aired, because they changed their mind after signing the contract, and they did everything in their power to sabotage the 13 episdoes that were filmed.

Despite all that, soem great groundwork was laid out, and the scripts waiting to be filmed were fantastic, and really stepped things up.

The gods of the universe should KNOW you can't stop the signal!

FIREFLY!

Baring that, I could live with a Voyager OR a Xena tele-movie or two.

Yes, yes, I know there are people who think the show wasn't just awful. Fortunately there aren't many.

Firefly, but ONLY because you said I can't (NEVER tell me I can't do something, that's the fastest way to get me to do it...).

Actually, I'd bring back Sliders, throw out seasons 2 through 5, and do it right this time. I'd keep season one, that was perfect, except for that one episode about egghead world.

I wouldn' throw away all of season 2 and 3. If we look hard enough there are probably another ten episodes worth keeping before the Professor's death.
