Which shows need a reunion?

I saw the "What shows need a spin-off" thread and was looking through my TV-on-DVD collection for ideas when I came across a show that didn't need a spin-off, but certainly needs a reunion: Freaks & Geeks. I would love to see what those characters are up to ten years later. Are Daniel and Kim still together? Are Sam, Neal, and Bill still friends? What direction did Lindsey wind up going with her life?

A few of the stars of the show have hit it big, but I think if Apatow wanted to do a reunion, he could get the gang back together.

It's kind of a cheat, but I'd also like to see a Carnivale reunion that could serve as the next chapter in the saga.

Walker Texas Ranger

The 2005 Reunion Movie ended on a fucking cliffhanger, which still pisses me off to this day.

Well, only 2 of the Golden Girls would be able to make it. Betty White and Rue McClanahan. Estelle has major alzheimer's and Bea just passed away.

Diff'rent strokes - If the Mr. Drummond role is a little too much for Conrad, he could split the role between him and his twin brother, Bonar. That would be awesome.

Really? Three of them are alive? I thought it was the other way around.

Estelle died last July.

I would love to see a Sports Night reunion show. Are Dan and Casey still anchoring the show? Is Dana still their boss? Natalie and Jeremy still dating or fighting? Issac still wanting to fire the whole lot of them?

Homefront, but seeing that it was set in the 40's, I would only want to see them 10 yrs later.

Now and Again, just to find out what happened to them.. they left us with a huge cliffhanger that still bothers me today.

That would be pretty good.

How about a Happy Days reunion set in the 1980s? All the principles are still alive right?

I think they're all still alive, but last time I saw Tom Bosley he looked like he was going downhill. Sorry to say

He was on a One Tree Hill episode a few years ago. He didn't look too bad.

Re: Which shows need a reunion?

I'm sure Angela Lansbury could stll do a movie even at 84 years old, but I don't think in this era of the advertiser happy 18-49 crowd would a Murder She Wrote movie ever be greenlighted.

I agree about NYPD Blue. I thought the series finale ended on a really blah note with Sipowicz just working on paperwork in the office. Plus, I recall that Andy was a Sergeant, but was promoted to the head of that Unit in the last few episodes.

YES, I am still waiting, I really want to know what was going to happen, this is a reason I hate cliffhangers.
