Life on Mars.. Yes. I couldn't remember the name of that one. I enjoyed it


the UK original version is 2 seasons, and available in the US on DVD, and 100000000x's better than the US version,

the follow up series, Ashes to Ashes is 3 seasons, and unfortunately not available in the US,

bought my copy from amazon uk and a region free dvd player to watch it

For some odd reason, I always thought that series lasted 2 seasons. Love some Bruce Campbell.

Featured a very young Sienna Miller.


DVDs don't capture the show as well since they cheaped out and didn't buy the rights to the original music.

A very stunning Sienna Miller.

And of course, Miss Moneypenny. Wink

For me, the most recent, according to rumors, would be "The Brave". Good show!

"Call to Glory"

The first few episodes of that show, especially the pilot was great. Despite doing well in the ratings the network screwed over production for the last half of the season, and quality suffered (with a decline in ratings) leading up to it's cancellation.

This one only lasted as a miniseries that was supposed to become a regular series but I thought they'd give it a couple years as a series, sadly never happened:

T.H.E. Cat, starring Robert Loggia 1966-1967. For those who've never seen, nor heard of it. Loggia is a former high-wire, circus performer. Along with being a retired, notorious jewel-thief. Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat; in the series, [being totally reformed] he now works as a skilled bodyguard, and a police-consultant for R. G. Armstrong, the local police captain. Most of the episodes, are filmed at night, to add to the show's stealthy-vibe. T.H.E. Cat frequents a local jazz venue, known as the Casa del Gato owned by his best friend; a Gypsy, named Pepe [Robert Carricart]. A lot of the action centers around the hip club. Many of the episodes; featured future stars like Robert Duval, William Daniels, and Henry Darrow. Series had a great early score penned by none-other, than Lalo Schifrin.

Yeah I know, I'm Old.

That show only lasted a year? I could swear it went longer, and I still remember the theme song. For those who never heard it, or don't connect with it, enjoy:


Cool show, and a nice interplay between Mr. Lucky and Andamo. Memorable Henry Mancini theme.

Was that the show with Leslie Nielsen? It was like a prequel to the Naked Gun movies.

Yet another vote for Firefly.

There was a sitcom back in ‘99 or ‘00 called Stark Raving Mad, with Tony Shaloub and Neil Patrick Harris. I remember it was funny, and I was let down that it only had one season.

Yep. I thought it was great and had multiple opportunities for the storyline to continue.
