Touching Evil (USA version) and Carnivale were both amazing shows. I was really bummed when these shows were canceled. :(

Touching Evil was awesome. Great cast and a soundtrack another TV show would kill to get. Really pissed me off when I heard that there was just one season.

I have the complete series on two discs.

 

I also have various other shows that aren't on anymore.

 

NOTE: with the exception of Wonderfalls and Voyagers, none o fthese are released on DVD. At least not in the complete set form. A few (like Stooges) are in various volumes or whatever. All of these are authored by various people that I've acquired them from over the years.

 

EDIT #2: Oh yeah and the Pilot to LA Confidential is on the upcoming Bluray for LA confidential, and I BELIEVE it was packaged with other unaired pilots into a dvd.

 

Including:

 

Wanted (TNT cop show)

Thief (FX Crime show)

The Master (Lee Van Cleef Ninja show on USA in the 80's)

New York Undercover (Fox cop show)

The Three Stooges (complete set)

Dennis The Menace (Complete Series from the 60's)

Saved (TNT show about paramedics)

Wonderfalls (quirky Fox show)

Voyagers! (80's sci-fi show. Finally released on DVD and I got it! lol)

John Doe (Fox show starring Dominic Purcell from Prison Break)

Hotel (Twin Peaks-ish type show)

Haunted (Matthew Fox supernatural show)

LA Confidential (Pilot with Kiefer Sutherland and Eric "Brother of Julia" Roberts)

Lucky (FX show about a gambling addict. Stars John Corbett)

and a few others.

Anybody remember MTV's DOWNTOWN?

 

Man o' man did I love this show! What made it so special to me (aside from the awesome production) the episodes and characters always (in one way or another) reminded me of myself, or someone I know.

 

cool beans!

So IMDb is streaming movies and television shows on their website now, and they've got a ton of movies and shows, both classic and new, and even some new fall shows that are airing there before they hit television.

 

I was browsing around over there (just out of curiosity) and I found a show that I used to absolutely love back in the 90's, called Beauty and the Beast, and I had forgotten just how beautiful and how good that show really was. That was when I first fell in love with Ron Perlman.

 

There's one scene in the first episode, where he just blows me away. Right after Catherine has discovered the "truth" about him, he tells her,

 

"I've never been ashamed of what I am,.. until now."

 

That was the moment that I fell in love with him. He was amazing in that show. And almost everything he's done since has been icing on the cake. :P

Perlman was great in "The Last Supper"

True Blood, if you can get past the horrendous accents, is a really awesome show. It's got a weird campy undertone. I love it!

After the first few episodes, I really started to dig it. Granted there are a few campy moments, but I still found it entertaining. The episode where you find out how Bill was transformed was by far one of the best.

The only good thing about True Blood is that it had Lizzy Caplan and Anna Paquin topless.

Honestly just type Lizzy Caplan or Anna Paquin and topless True Blood into Google search and you'll find plenty of choices.

As to shows that are actually still running…

 

Burn Notice

Eureka

NCIS

House M.D.

A few shows from the History Channel & Military Channel

 

As to shows that had their run (I’ll keep this to the ones I enjoyed the most)…

 

Firefly

Vengeance Unlimited

Titus

Futurama

Band of Brothers

The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.

Conquest (a History Channel show)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Angel

Star Trek (any incarnation)

 

I seem to have a taste for shows that ended up getting the axe rather than end on their own terms.

There were others I enjoyed… I just can’t remember them right now.
