Monday Listicles

Happy Father’s Day! Also apparently today is National Fudge day. Could this get any better?

I have just spend an unreasonable amount of time wrecking my brain to come up with a list. Jen had a great idea for us to write about 10 shows that got canceled too soon. This is such an easy task, I know. Except I don’t watch TV. The few shows I love ran on for so long ( Mad about you comes to mind) that I cannot ad to this list. The rest are still running, like Modern Family. So I am totally stuck. But I pulled through. I bet as I start reading your lists I will be slapping my forehead silly remembering them all.

That is why next week’s suggestion is an easy peasy one for me. Thank you Heather:

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Suburban Shootout / Channel 5 UK

It only lasted 2 seasons but to this day it is one of my favorite shows ever.

2. Fraiser / NBC

I know 10 years makes this one of the longest running sitcoms ever but I think we could have watched it forever.

3. Arrested Development / FOX, Netflix

It is really funny. Why did they cancel it again?

4. Bored to Death / HBO

Best show ever. I cannot believe they x-ed it after 2 seasons!

5. Close to Home / CBS

I only watched the first season. It came on every afternoon while I was recovering from knee surgery couch bound. I remember I liked it and then never saw it aired anywhere else again.

6. Lie to me / Fox

It’s Tim Roth. Everything he acts in is golden!

7. Bolji život / RTS

I watched that show every Sunday evening with my family growing up and I remember how sad we were when it ended.


OK, I am on the limb here. They rounded it up nicely. I don’t think they should have made the two movies. So I would trade those two for more seasons.

9. Northern Exposure

I feel like this could have turned into a spin off of some sort. It had great stories and was a joy to watch.

10. Life on Earth: A Natural History by David Attenborough / BBC

One of the best shows ever. The one that began my love affair with documentaries, to this day the only kind of TV that I love to watch.
