While most shows have taken yet another midseason break until April, I've taken the time to get reacquainted with old friends. No, I haven't been looking through old yearbooks and calling the numbers left under "K.I.T." or facebooking my old college roommates. I've been watching old TV shows that have been replaced by all the shows that are now on break. Swap Buffy with The Vampire Diaries, ER with Grey's Anatomy, and Beverly Hills, 90210 with, well, 90210 and you get what I mean. You don't have to have a huge collection of TV on DVD box sets to watch some of your favorite shows; thanks to the Internet most of them are just a click away.
I usually take slow times, like these, in my TV lineup to re-watch some of my favorite defunct shows. For some reason, Roswell always makes a comeback during the Summer, My So-Called Life makes an appearance as often as possible (because who doesn't love an excuse to watch Jordan Catalano), and Freaks and Geeks gets sprinkled somewhere in between. But these aren't the only shows that I love to see make a comeback on the small screen. After a failed attempt to watch Jack & Jill on YouTube (there's only a couple episodes posted), I moved on to another NYC-based WB show: Felicity. Did the urge to watch Felicity have anything to do with Scott Foley's role on Grey's Anatomy? Of course! Now that I'm on the last three episodes of the series, I'm sad to see to old friends leave, but glad to see the new ones return. Although most shows, namely those on The CW, return the week of April 18, a couple start back up a few weeks early. Thankfully, The Vampire Diaries returns, along with Isobel, on April 7 and Grey's Anatomy begins the week earlier. Let's hope Noel (Scott Foley) is made a regular on Grey's, because without him I have no use for Teddy. He's the only thing keeping her storyline interesting.
Now, your turn: what TV series do you go back to, or is there an old show you want to give a chance to now?
