This week, I am taking a step back from writing about angry vaginas to focus on what some may consider an even more controversial topic: television. Or, more specifically, television shows that should never have been canceled. What follows is my nerd-gasm list of shows I wish were still sending new episodes out into the universe – and, fair warning, most of my list is comprised of quirky comedies and crazy sci-fi. Write what you know, right?
Disclaimer: I’m not a TV person. I grew up running around outdoors and playing sports – the television was something I occasionally parked myself in front of as a kid, but those moments were few and far between. As I grew, I just didn’t have the time to sit around and watch TV; my days were filled with school work, practice for this, rehearsal for that, etc. As a result, I didn’t see a lot of movies either, and when friends would be discussing last night’s episode of Beverly Hills 1249871298 or some shit and how OHMYGOD so-and-so cheated on what’s his face can you believe it?!?!, I was left in the dark, wondering what it was that I was missing. Well, thanks to the wonder of Hulu and Netflix and friends who have good taste, I was introduced to the world of good television during my college years, and slowly began to realize what all the fuss was about.
With that in mind, I give you the following list of shows that I wish had never been canceled, in no particular order – because that means picking favorites, and I don’t want any of the kids getting a superiority complex.
