Re: What would YOU bring back?

STAR TREK
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE
TWILIGHT ZONE

I would reboot all three series.

I would be executive producer on all, so they would be done MY way.

J.J. Abrams and Tom Cruise would be shot on sight if they tried to enter the studio.

Re: What would YOU bring back?

I'm thinking mostly shows that had one, maybe two seasons and didn't have a chance for a conclusion...

Space AaA

Crusade (like B5, uneven but promising start, but great things seemed to lurk)

Dark Shadows (the one with Ben Cross as B. Collins)

The Lone Gunmen

I guess a remake of Space: Above and Beyond could be interesting, but it's been so long and I guess if they made a new one people would just call it a BSG rip-off.

I liked Kings and Jericho and wanted to see more of those shows, but there's a reason they were cancelled, and I don't see how that would change now if the god of sci-fi tv reanimated them.

Oh, forgot about Jericho, definitely that. I haven't seen Kings, but the concept sounds fancinating, and Ian McShane is an acting god.

Aside from Firefly?

Star Trek (reboot or preboot).

I would say The Incredible Hulk, but the kind of project that I would be interested in is less a remake of the live-action show and more a new and more faithful live-action adaptation, which is seemingly what will air in 2012.

Star Trek WILL come back to TV, I'm certain of that. It is only a question of when and what form.

Never works very well for very long, either.

That's why industries can be built on the effort. Duh!

Actually I wouldn't have minded seeing what another season of Charlie Jade would look like.
First thing that came to mind upon seeing the thread. Would have loved a season two of Charlie Jade.

Non-genre wise: Deadwood and Rome (with the latter having presumably a less truncuated feeling second season or something).

Likewise.

I expected to see a lot of TOS and ENT references in this thread, surprised that this is the only Trek nod - but I guess reviving Star Trek is as stale an idea as reviving Firefly.

What's damning? TNT cancelled the show, before a single episode aired...

Yes, yes, I know there are people who think the show wasn't just awful. Fortunately there aren't many.
I also think Crusade was bad, but I probably would have watched it until the second season to see if it was gonna pull its stuff together. It was the most promising of all JMS's Babylon 5 spinoff projects, but that's admittedly a terribly low bar.

I'd say the same about Caprica, although it was quite a bit better than Crusade.

Re: What would YOU bring back?

Picking one is difficult.

Journeyman probably tops the list.

Also, The Survivors (re-vamped series).

Charlie Jade

And Earth 2. Hate how it ended.

Until the next guy starts up.

You're really not understanding the idea at all.

Re: What would YOU bring back?

I'd bring back Star Trek, but not any of the existing series. I want something new.

Other than that, I'd bring back any series that showed promise and didn't have the chance to fully tell its story: Firefly, Invasion, Jericho.

BSG, Lost, Farscape and B5 told their stories in full, so I wouldn't bring them back. I could see B5 having a good spinoff, though, but not Lost or Farscape. Caprica could have been a good spinoff for BSG, but required rethinking and greater dramatic focus.

Then there are the series that didn't really show a lot of promise but have premises that are worthy of a reboot or retry: Crusade, Threshold and Stargate in general are in that category.

Yep. Might be very different from what we envision. What would work on the CW is very different from what would work on Showtime is very different from what would work on The Cartoon Network.

Why is it "too early"? The movie demonstrated there is a great deal of interest in Star Trek, as long as it's presented in a convenient and attractive way, and doesn't suck. People will pay ten bucks to see it, but not watch it for free on broadcast or the cable channel they already subscribe to?
