TV Shows that should be made available in repeats Mon, 08/6/12 7:20 PM (permalink)
Sometimes, a canceled TV show gets revived. And sometimes, it gets remade (usually badly). But some TV shows are not going to be duplicated, but, often because they were canceled too soon, are not found in reruns, either.
 
Maybe it was a show you really loved. Maybe it was from the days before VCR's became common, and it on a night you were never home. Perhaps it was a show that you only realized it existed in the last few episodes. Or maybe it was an early effort from a later favorite performer.
 
In any case, what are some TV shows that are currently not available that you would want to see made available in repeats? Here are a few of mine:
 
THE ROGUES: Criminals stealing from other criminals in the cause of good, with movie stars like David Niven, Charles Boyer, and Gig Young (and a very young Larry Hagman filling in when the stars were busy making movies). Canceled because it was too expensive to make, I was a bit too young at the time to really appreciate it.
 
TRIALS OF O'BRIEN: Peter Falk's first Colombo-type character, killed by being opposite the wildly popular MAN FROM UNCLE. Some, including Peter Falk, thought it was better than COLOMBO.
 
HANK: Comedy about a college drop-"in"; a brilliant student whose parents died before scholarships were based on financial need, and had to support himself and his younger sister, while continuing to come up with schemes to attend classes at the college where he runs the local (get ready for this, Roadfooders!) food cart.
 
Fire away!
