oh my god - totally forgot about automan!

I always chuckled when the car flew into a curve at 90 degree angles and the human guy got plastered into the window every time...

...why didn't the hologram invent seatbelts in the car? oh well - very entertaining!

and don't forget the sidekick cursor, surprised no one got in trouble for this, it totally borrowed the "bit" character from Tron...

With sorrow, he questioned and lamented the end of all things.
When he finished speaking, he dragged the skull over and, using it for a pillow, lay down to sleep.
In the night, the skull came to his dreams and said, 'You are a fool to rejoice in the entanglements of life.'
Chuang Tzu couldn`t believe this and asked, 'If I could return you to your life, you would want that, wouldn`t you?'
Stunned by Chuang Tzu`s foolishness, the skull replied, 'How do you know that it is bad to be dead?'

I-Man, Tremors and The Lone Gummen were the three great shows that the networks in the infanite wisdom cut just when they were getting good.

Martial Law. Great show. Plenty fun to watch and plenty of action. It rocked getting to see Sammo Hung on TV every week. Canned at the end of the second season(it was just getting started!).

Yeah, and from what I saw, they never did resolve the cliffhanger from the end of the first season, they just ignored it!

You might think I'm nuts, but...."I'm with Busey", hilarous, put a brain-damged ex-matinee idol with a 25-year old kid have them hang out and do stuff around the city and watch the wackiness ensue!

The sad truth is we may rarely see these shows again so many awesome televisions. Yet, they had incredibly short lives. I was just thinking about these great television shows. You have a couple of options. You could tape the shows when re-runs appears. You could grab a bunch of us movie and TV freaks to make a petition to ask for DVD or  a re-release. Then there is KAZAA or any other of those file-sharers crap.

Personally I miss these the most.

-Tremors (What can I say, I like the movies and the actors!)

-Titus (It was funny and good, some said it was disgusting and offensive.)

-Firefly (We need more western sci-fis that aren't anime!)

-Lone Gunmen (It was so much better than the X-Files!!!)

-All About the Andersons (It show Anthony Anderson can act! Plus it's the next best thing to Titus.)

-Keen Eddie (This was AWESOME! Should have been the next Columbo! But NOOOOOOO!!!! It gets pulled off the air in a matter of weeks! How is it this stuff is gone but we still have NYPD Blue on!?!?!?!??!?!)

Anyways I wish 20th Century Fox would release them again

They show Keen Eddie on Bravo.  They must be showing unaired espisodes, because I know  Fox  canned it pretty fast.

I know this list could hit  500 replies and the show I never thought got a chance would never be mentioned by anyone else.  

The Pitts - Only a few episodes made but in the ones that were, there were werewolves, a living car, someone getting a pipe stuck through their head, a crazy nanny, a living dummy.  It was in my opinion a B-movie put into a tv show.  How that show failed and Oliver Beene still airs amazes me.

"Salute your Shorts" this was made way back when Nickoldian made good t.v. shows. The show only got about two season but I always loved watching it. Another show was "Freakazoid" A t.v. show rarely makes me laugh out loud but every episode of Freakazoid did. Why did it only get one and a half seasons!!??

Though I have not watched it, isn't Oliver Beene sorta "The Wonder Years" revisited?

Glad to see people mentioned "Vengeance Unlimited".  I didn't know who Michael Madsen was at the time, but that show was freakin awesome.

Also, Space: Above and Beyond was cool as hell too.

Heh, someone mentioned G vs. E and Brimstone, yeah those were good too.

Here's one nobody's mentioned: Invader ZIM.  Was a new Nicktoon 2 years ago.  Probably one of the best cartoons they've ever had.  But they cancelled it and decided to keep the crap that they show now.

Also, Family Guy.  Glad that Cartoon Network is showing old episodes now.  I heard a rumor that they were going to do another season too.

I think the Best show Nick did Was "the adventures of Pete and Pete."  That show had some truly great moments; Big Pete becomes a Bear, Mr. Tastee goes missing, Iggy Pop as a dad, Steve Buschema (sp?) as the next door neighbor, plus A Superhero- Artie!

I second Pete and Pete that show kicked ass.Anouther Nick show that I loved was Rocko's Modren Life.I loved all the adult humor hidden in that show.

    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.
