Make it so
THE British TV company Home Media Networks surveyed a thousand people asking which television show they would like to see return to the box.
Which is the most missed show? Star Trek of course! But not fucking Enterprise, you suck Enterprise, YOU SUCK!
But looking through the list, I am somewhat disconcerted:
1. Star Trek
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
4. Fawlty Towers
5. Blake's 7
6. The X-Files
7. Babylon 5
Buffy? Puh-lease, who gives a shit about that anymore? Friends? Have these people not heard of E4? An entire channel devoted to Friends re-runs!
A-Team and Seinfeld, fine choices. My personal nomination for a show that doesn't get repeated nearly enough is QUANTUM LEAP
. Amazing how one man
can traverse the central roles in both one of the coolest and one of the lamest shows of my lifetime.
"Theorizing that one could time-travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project known as Quantum Leap."
What kind of crazy-ass logic is that? Why could he time travel only within his own lifetime? Am I asking too many questions in this post? Anyway, there was clearly some genetic influence to his time travel as once he went back in time so far that he was in the American Civil War - because you see he travelled within his grandfather's lifetime. How this is possible, I don't know. I'd already given Belisarius the benefit of the doubt about the whole time-travel-in-his-own-life-thing. Then he freed his slave and the slave said Oh Happy Days! and he became Martin Luther King's dad and and and well..the rest is history. Excellent.
In the entire history of spoken language, no word has ever had as much emotion as that 'home' at the end of the intro.
"Trapped in the past, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap would be the leap home."
