There are so many TV shows, long since dead, that are making their return to the small screen. Unfortunately I’m not terribly interested in most of them, so I picked seven shows I would have interest in and asked you to choose between them: would you rather resurrect Carnivale, Pushing Daisies, The Unusuals, Veronica Mars, Harper’s Island, Dark Angel, or The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.?
Well, you bastards left me with a tie, and so I did my best. If this poll had any legitimacy or actual power behind it whatsoever, the show that would come back to our television screens?
Carnivale and Pushing Daisies ended up getting the most votes, and while it was a very hard call, ultimately I felt like I had shows (such as the excellent iZombie) to fulfill my quirky procedural needs, whereas there’s just nothing quite like Carnivale on TV today. Plus, it left me with a cliffhanger that will never be resolved. I want resolution, godamnit.
The Unusuals and The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. took third place, while there was no love at all for Veronica Mars, Harper’s Island, or Dark Angel. Sorry, guys. You’re not only merely dead; you’re really most sincerely dead.
Thanks, everyone, for playing!
