"Fastlane" was kinda cool, only because it had cars in it...

I may be showing my age but what about:
Misfits of Science (kind of a 'b' series show)
Remo Williams (I got to see the first episode)
Captain America (Wish I could find out what happened to it, but I do remember the series)
Oh, and of course MacGyver

That Jay Mohr show about Hollywood, kind of a darker comedy. Too much for network TV, including Fox. It probably would have flourished on cable.


Defiantly "Clerks: The Animated Series." At least the movie, "Clerks: Sellout" is on the way.

Here's another one: Cupid

It was a hit with critics, but, had crappy timing. I loved that show.

In a way, I am kind of glad that Futurama got cancelled when it did, because it was on the heights, and I never wanted to see it degenerate the way the Simpsons has.

Very recent simpsons actually showed it getting better again. Taking on recent issues and more funny lines and plots. Looks interesting at least.

I'd rather have shitty Futurama episodes than most of the rest of crap that's on TV.

I just finished watching the last episode of Freaks & Geeks. God damn that was a good series. Seeing that show last only a single season makes me cry for the future of television.

MTV has been full of shit ever since the very first episode of The Real World. Real, my ass!!

MTV2 is only worth it cuz of HBB.

VH1...good shows, but they oughta rename the channel.

VH1 Classic and Fuse...they got it right. In fact, I think Fuse should have HBB.

I read about TV Nation in Michael Moore's books, but, living in Germany, I've never actually seen it. What's the concept of the show, what's happening in it?
