If you were given control of a studio and could bring back ONLY 3 shows that were cancelled. What would they be? Try to list shows that were cancelled within the last 5 years or so.

1-Vengeance Unlimited
2-John Doe
3-Special Unit 2
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Is it cancelled, or on extended hiatus? I know CN does things strangly sometimes...

For me:

1 - The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr.
2 - Futurama
3 - Cupid

Special Unit 2 and Freaks & Geeks for sure. After that, I'd have to give it some thought. Maybe Firefly? (Although I think Firefly is getting a movie.)

That Fox has been producing more memorable series than the other networks put together over the past few years?

Anyway, I'd go with The Adventures of Brisco County Junior, Remember WENN, and The Lone Gunmen, though the first two are outside the five-year frame.
Jay's Movie Blog - A movie-viewing diary.
Transplanted Life: Sci-fi soap opera about a man placed in a new body, updated two or three times a week.
Trading Post Inn - Another gender-bending soap, with different collaborators writing different points of view.

From last year:

Karen Sisco
Miss Match
Wonderfalls

I'm an Angel fan, but I purposely named shows that were good but that were not given much of a chance, being cancelled within several episodes.

- There's no such thing as "normal". The secret is to find someone that's screwed up in a way that seems "normal" to you.
