I am about to make a fool out of myself, but I have to talk about this. I get into TV shows when I really like them, and there are several of them that I really miss. I need to be ashamed of some of these, but what the French toast, here goes nothing! These are 7 TV shows I really miss...
1. Doogie Howser, MD
Number one choice, no question, can’t help it. Neil Patrick Harris was my first real love. He paved the way for House. Of course, once I had a dream where Vinny kissed me and then I started obsessing over him, but that doesn’t count, since NPH is still hot and the guy who played Vinny … not so much.
2. Mama’s Family
Oh, I loved this show so much. I watch the reruns whenever I get a chance and I almost got a little teary when I heard that Ken Berry died. I wish there could be a reunion, but I know that’s not in the cards. I hope nobody ever, ever tries to remake this, though, not as a series. That would just be sacrilegious.
3. Flavor of Love
I would hang my head in shame, but that makes it hard for me to type. I know, I know. This show was a dirty hamster -- and I loved it so much. I went through withdrawal any time I missed it. I should just get every season on DVD, because VH1 never obliges me by having an all out marathon.
4. Gilmore Girls
Yeah, I said it. Or rather -- yeah, I admit it. The Better Half is going to hold this over my head for the next six months, but I really do miss the antics of the Gilmores. I really, really do wish they’d have a reunion. I want to see Lorelai and Luke together and I want Rory and Jess together. Someone get on this, please.
I can’t help it, this reminded me so much of my family: blue collar royalty trying to make ends meet. I wish, actually, that they could somehow get together and redo the entire last season. I mean, come on. Didn’t they go out on the chintziest note ever? And I’m sorry, but Dan was far too loveable to end up dead. I love John Goodman. That sucked.
6. Boston Legal
I love me some James Spader. I always jeered at him in movies like Pretty in Pink, he was such a jerk, but oh my. Alan Shore is … well, he’s a jerk too, but he’s so sexy about it. I loved his obvious chemistry with Shatner. I also loved me some Shatner. Of course, this is possibly due to bonding over Star Trek with my father as a child.
7. Freaks and Geeks
I actually just got into this, thanks to the reruns on … Sundance or IFC or something. Jason Segal is so adorable, and so many of the actors on there have gone on to do such brilliant things that I can’t really be sad it’s gone. But it sucks to get into the show while knowing they don’t have any new episodes coming.
I know, I know, I’m a huge couch potato. A lot of these shows just bring up memories of hanging out when I was a kid, though. What shows do you wish they would bring back?
