We haven't done this for a while so I thought I'd throw it out for discussion again. What are your top 5 stalled out/abandoned shows that you wish would be completed? If you have less than five go ahead and list them anyhow.
Rawhide - For me it has to start with this series. It's been a huge favorite of mine and I really am heartbroken that CBS stalled this one out. The writing, acting and outdoor shooting that took place in this show is phenomenal and I'd like to see more.
Leave it to Beaver - Thank you Shout Factory for making it possible for me to cross this one off the list!
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - It's unfathomable (no pun intended) that Fox has left this one sitting out there with only a half season remaining.
4) Big Valley - This one doesn't sting quite as much as the others only because I have good prints off Encore Western. Still, I think this was the first show that was abandoned at the half-way point of a season. Thanks Fox. /img/vbsmilies/htf/rolleyes.gif
Hazel - I have to admit I could have put many other series in this fifth slot, but I wanted to be an equal opportunity complainer and Sony needed to be represented so I picked this one. /img/vbsmilies/htf/drool.gif
Best of the rest for me personally (and in no particular order):
Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (I just want more of these - period)
Love, American Style
The Real McCoys
Rifleman (I include this one because MPI never did get all the eps released)
Naked City (same as above, only insert Image instead of MPI)
Make Room for Daddy
Chips (just wanted the 3rd season for the Christmas episode - errr)
Here Come the Brides
The Lawless Years
And on and on it goes. There are many others I could have listed, but these are enough to start with. What are your top 5?
