1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nero Wolfe (A&E, two seasons) [​IMG] Foyle's War (BBC, six series) [​IMG] I can think of many others that jumped the shark far too quickly and then were (unsurprisingly cancelled). ~ H

    Carnivale. My favorite show ever.

    Crime Story. Awesome late '50s copper flick that launched both Dennis Farina and David Caruso.

    Chappelle's Show. Funniest show ever, although Dave cancelled it himself. [​IMG]

    Foyle's War is 7 series long. It got canceled after 6, but came back this year.
    +1 Every time I see Mal in that Castle show, I [​IMG] on the inside.
    This..... I can't believe the injustice done to Firefly. At least Serenity was good. (Not great, just good)

    LOL at Quark. It really was ahead of it's time.

    I'd also add the Prisoner to that list of quirky shows that should've stuck around a little longer. That remake of it that came out a couple years ago sucked, despite McKellen and Caviezel's best efforts to keep it on life support through their performances. Show needed a better writers like Steven Moffat or Russel T. Davies.

    He said he only *could* have done one more season and it would have been on Hispanic immigrants but just didn't have the knowledge/insight with them that he had with everything else. Also, imagine how much of the suture and verisimilitude would have disappeared with the wire had there been subtitles or English speakers for Hispanics.
