Of the top of my head, I can only think of the live-action Punky Brewster show in the 80's. It was on the air when I was a kid, and loved it. Would very much like to see it have a reunion of some kind.

Anyone else have their own wanted-reunions from these times?

Moonlighting could make for an intriguing reunion. Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd. But I don't think either star would be interested in doing it.

At one point in time I would've liked to see a followup to Quantum Leap, or even Sliders, just to resolve the cliffhanger endings. But too much time has passed now. Given Hollywood's track record with continuing old shows decades later (X-Files, I'm looking at you) I'd rather they just pass on it.

way too late for MASH and WKRP

Would love to see a Night Court reunion but that won't happen

CHEERS? Nah, the characters had their epilogue moments on Frasier

Frasier reunion could be good.

Can't really do a Babylon 5 reunion since so many of them are dead now

Greatest American Hero?

Xena. Notice how both of my choices involve duos (David/Maddie, Xena/Gabrielle). In both cases, I'm interested in seeing in what directions their lives have gone. The tangential characters are less important, although I would of course like to see Bruce Campbell in any Xena reunion. I wish Ares could be in it.

That 70's show. I'd like to see where the characters end up pushing 40 in the 90's.

I'm a huge fan of Hercules/Xena but they pretty much had their run. The series ended with Xena dead and most of their friends old or dead in the 20 years later future. Besides we already saw Xena, Gabby and Joxer get reincarnated into the 1940s, 1990s and early 2000s, so we kind of know where they end up.

Call me a masochist but I wanted another season of Cleopatra 2525.

Sadly though my favorite character was probably Hyde, and Danny Masterson currently has as much heat on him as Kevin Spacey.

Good point. I had forgotten that.

I liked that show. I especially liked that it was 30 minutes long. I also liked its partner show, Jack of All Trades. Putting two shows back to back in a single hour reminded me of Marvel's old Tales of Suspense and Tales to Astonish books, a format I would support today if it were offered.

I read about that just after I posted. He was my favorite character as well.

Considering Masterson is part of Scientology I believe the accusations the women have made. If not for the cult I might have given him the benefit of the doubt as I was a fan but if you're a willing part of that cult I assume you're evil. Plus you know his father-in-law was into incest. He picked the right family to marry into for him.

A horrible science fiction show that I've never even heard of? That's rare. I have no life. And it had Gina Torres in it? How did I never hear of this?

Cleopatra 2525 was a fun show full of action and eye candy. It was actually sort of a televised comic book. But not one of those comic books that are trying to win awards. Its brevity (30 minutes) was one of its strengths.

Its partner show, Jack of All Trades, was also fun. If you like Bruce Campbell, then you'll like this show. Here, too, brevity was a strength.

Cleopatra 2525 and Jack of All Trades comprised the "Back 2 Back Action" hour that was basically a midseason replacement by Universal after the last half-season of Hercules. It was syndicated and might not have run in all markets. Cleopatra starred Gina Torres, Jennifer Sky, Victoria Pratt and Joel Tobeck who has all appeared on Hercules and/or Xena prior. Jack of all Trades had Bruce Campbell, Angela Dotchin and a few others who had all appeared on Herc/Xena or Young Hercules prior. Back 2 Back came back the next season but after I think 6 episodes Jack of all Trades ended and Cleopatra expanded to a full hour for the last 5 or 6 episodes, leading to a big climax cliffhanger final episode that was never resolved.

Cleopatra is definitely the show that put Gina Torres on the map for me. She was great in this bit of cheese.

I actually never got into Jack of all Trades really. I'm a big Bruce Campbell fan and I really liked Brisco County Jr. but this show was just way too cartoony and silly, so I see your point about brevity. Ash Vs. Evil Dead is kind of on the fence too, it is really cartoony.

Parker Lewis Can't Lose. I loved that show during its original run, though I admit when I watched episodes in the last few years it didn't interest me as much. Still, it had a young cast that has probably changed a lot over the years and it'd be interesting to see them together again.

I sincerely hope you never heard of Starhunter with Michael Pare. Because if you did, you'd probably have watched it and ... oh no, my post is totally self-defeating isn't it?

I used to love that show as well. I've never see a channel that reruns it anywhere though.

The Life of Xander:

Xander in his 40's. Still doing construction even though he has no depth perception. Has an ex-wife demoness that doesn't let him see their kids. Vampires and monsters still randomly attack him even though he doesn't even live near a hellmouth. Eventually him and Clem get their own show where they renovate demon abodes, vampire dens etc

Borgnine is dead and jan Michael Vincent.....well, there are few polite words to describe his overall state of health.

Knight Rider: I think Hasselhoff has something called Knight Rider Heroes in development


Night Court wouldn't mind seeing that

Cheers: the characters received some followup and closure on Frasier, would rather see Frasier reunite
