If you could bring back one cancelled show, which would you choose and why? (from [personal profile] megan_moonlight)

This is a tough one because there have been so many great short-lived and/or otherwise cancelled shows, but it's made a little less tough by the fact that a lot of shows end up lasting just long enough to really go off the rails.

Anyway, to pick just one I might actually go with Stargate Atlantis?  I recently rewatched it, and that definitely plays a part, but Atlantis and SG-1 are among the relatively few long-lived shows that I never thought of as having fallen apart on a larger scale.  There might be a dud episode here or there, but I always enjoyed watching how the universe developed and where the larger plot went next.  And the characters coming and going never bothered me in Stargate the way it does in some shows (not that the writing out of characters couldn't have sometimes been better.  I mean... Elizabeth Weir?  She was never my favorite but wow writers, have some respect), I just loved meeting new people and watching the old ones grow and change.

So anyway, I think Atlantis had a huge amount of potential left after the final season ended, and the characters were so great, and it would be wonderful to see where it would have gone next.
