MrsF1234:  YES! Reunion! I have all the episodes on VHS (yikes). I thought this show was the cleverest thing. Too bad it didn’t catch on.


OH and one more. Young Americans. Summer of 2000. Don’t know why it didn’t catch on like Dawson’s Creek. It had a simliar vibe, and character.

I see a couple I was going to mention, Pushing Daisies and Pan Am …. but I have a couple to add, Bomb Girls and The Riches. Loved them both and they were cancelled with no finale. Also have to admit that my guilty pleasure/dirty little secret, My Name Is Earl, letting my southern roots show. It was another to end abruptly.

Considering Fox just canned a whole bunch of shows this am… this post is very fitting!

I’m going to miss The Family and Grandfathered.

Melrose Place 2.0 – I loved the original so was so excited about this one. However, it was doomed from the start with them casting Ashlee Simpson.

Grounded for Life – Not very short-lived, but very underrated and ended abruptly.

I know it’s not *technically* TV but I’m desperately depressed there’s no sequel to Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. 🙁

Selfie! I think people didn’t watch it because it had a stupid name. The actors were great and they had stellar chemsitry. 

Also Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23
