* MARILY MCCOO AND BILLY DAVIS JR.

* THE MONTEFUSCOS

* JOE AND SONS

Not old, but they had a Melrose Place remake the other night.  My wife tells me they made a previous remake which was cancelled.  Not really forgotten, more like I never even knew about it.

There was also a Dark Shadows revival series which got cancelled after a dozen episodes or so.

Actually, a recent (and very terrible) show was MY BIG FAT GREEK LIFE.  I watched the pilot episode and it was painful.  The humor was forced (and not funny).  I think they ended up making about 6 episodes, which QUICKLY got released in a DVD set.  I wonder if anyone bought it?

Yes, I remember Shields & Yarnell. I even kinda liked it, though I probably shouldn't admit it.

Then there's the ever-popular Manimal

And I just finished watching all 20 episodes of Square Pegs on Hulu.com. I still like that show.

That show probably should have been called Minimal

I have Square Pegs on DVD. Would like to see Invisible Man as I'm a huge fan of David McCallum's work.

I got a couple that come to mind:
+ Supertrain
+ Pink Lady and Jeff
+ The Chevy Chase Show
+ You're in the Picture
+ Me and the Chimp
+ My Mother the Car

And of course my personal favorite, Turn-On!  It is the only show to ever been cancelled during mid-air.  It was cancelled half way through and most the nation never even saw it even begin!

Holmes and YoYo  (a cop and his Robot partner)
Vengeance Unlimited (Michael Madsen playing Bugs Bunny.  I liked this show.)
Carter Country  (a comedy about cops in Georgia)
CPO Sharkey (Don Rickles as an officer in the navy)
Alias Smith and Jones (this western was so bad it's not even funny)

and The Rerun Show (Each episode was a hilarious spoof version of an older show.  I liked this one too.)

The Magician with Bill Bixby.  All I can remember about this show is the Corvette he drove.

Salvage One. Somebody should have clued in that when Andy Griffith sent a homebuilt rocket to the moon in the pilot, the show really had nowhere else to go but downhill.

Quark. There's an example of a show that was ahead of its time. The public just wasn't ready for a sci-fi sitcom. I suppose there was Mork and Mindy, but I count that more as a tried-and-true mismatched roommate scenario with an alien. Anyway, I think Richard Benjamin is underrated.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
