Debate of the Day: What One Show Would You Resurrect from the Dead?

It’s a simple question really.

Which television show that you’ve loved has fallen to the mighty ratings hammer, and you wish could have just one more chance? The catch here is that you can only choose one. You might want to bring back Undeclared, Arrested Development or Jericho, but you can only pick one.

As you can see above, I’ve made my choice and it’s Joss Whedon’s prematurely executed Firefly. I’ve declared my love for Arrested Development as my #1 show of all time on many an occasion here on the site, so why not that?

I worry with that and other comedies, they have the biggest potential for getting stale, and not ending on the relative high note they did. Arrested concluded its series in a hurry, but it did it well, and by only having two and a half season, never got to go downhill.

I picked Firefly because I believe that the universe that was created in the show had so much potential, and the crew was such a well put-together cast that I’m sure it could have run for seasons with ease. Yes, the eventual film gave the show the ending it was never allowed, but I can’t help but think there’s so much more there.

So, what about you? Which one show would you save?
