There is nothing I love more than a tv show that makes me laugh & cry at the same time. It happens so rarely, when I come across one that does, I treasure it like it was the Hope Diamond.
My Valentines Days present (from myself, of course!) was the DVD set of "Sports Night." This show, featuring Josh Charles, Peter Krause and Felicity Huffman, and the always outstanding Robert Guilliame, is well written, well acted, well... just great. Of course it tanked in the ratings (cause g*d forbid something funny, intelligent actually was a commercial success) so the networks dumped it after a couple of seasons. It joined the ranks of "My So Called Life" (hello? one of the greatest shows EVER), "Homefront" (does anyone else remember that show) and so many others that didn't stand a chance. How does a stupid stupid show like "Yes Dear" stay on the air year after year while good, quality shows dissappear faster than a gram of coke at Tara Reids house?

Never watched Sports Night but I STILL cringe when anyone mentions My So Called Life. That is a wound that never quite healed properly.

Add Freaks & Geeks to that list.
