Freaks and Geeks

Last air date: 10/10/00

In a world
where “Full House” and “Twin Peaks” are coming back, is there any reason why we can’t get a new season of absolute cult-classic “Freaks and Geeks?” Billed as the career starting point for actors like James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segal and Linda Cardellini, “Freaks and Geeks” was the show for everyone who felt like they didn’t quite fit in


Avatar: The Last Airbender 

Last air date: 7/19/08

Though Book 4 of “Korra” ended this year, the rabid fan base of the “Avatar” universe is clamoring for more stories to be told. With Nickelodeon seemingly done with the franchise, what better way to keep it going? We could set the story in the past, dealing with a time before Aang and Korra, when Avatars were seen as Gods. We could also go into the future to see how element bending has affected the modern day. The possibilities are endless.

The Newsroom

Last air date: 12/14/14

Another show that ended last year, the easily digestible format and lovable characters of this Aaron Sorkin drama deserve another shot. Sorkin says he’s done, so let’s have a new writer pick it up and run with it. The show is broken up into days when important events happen (Boston Marathon Bombing, Osama Bin Laden killed) and the Netflix crowd would love to have a year of news condensed into 12 episodes released at once.


Last air date: 7/28/03

Did you really expect this one not to be on the list? This short-lived Joss Whedon playground may have the most devout fan base of any show ever, and they’re eager to step back into the shoes of Captain Reynolds and his Serenity crew for more space adventures. In a world where “Falling Skies” gets renewed and the Wachowskis are still able to make movies, why hasn’t this happened yet?

Firefly-007Young Justice

Last air date: 3/16/13

Let’s face it; DC and Warner Bros. have had a tough time bringing the classic superheroes of DC Comics to light, aside from Batman. One thing DC has always been good at, however, is creating wonderful animated universes. Shows like “Batman: The Animated Series,” “Teen Titans” and, of course, “Young Justice” come to mind. Cartoon Network screwed the pooch here and cut the show short before its story was resolved. Fans deserve to see what’s next for Superboy, Miss Martian and more.
