The feeling of nostalgia is one of prevalence when it comes to television recently, especially with the revival of shows like X-Files. At times like these, it makes me question: what shows would I bring back if I had the power? Here’s my top 5:
Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1997-2003)
If you haven’t watch this, then what are you even doing with your life? Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the best shows on TV, presenting its audience with a mix of drama, romance, comedy and action. It depicted plots that we could NOT stop watching. One more episode and then I’ll go to bed? Yeah, not with Buffy. I genuinely cared about these characters with my entire being and if I got the chance to see them on screen again, it would be a dream come true.
Agent Carter (2015-2016)
Although it hasn’t been off our screens for long, Marvel’s Agent Peggy Carter has made a huge impression on viewers that we just cannot forget her. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has to wait until 2019 till we get our first female solo film, Agent Carter was out there already providing us with a hell of a lot of good content with a badass woman throwing some moves. It was a show that got you pumped and with it ending on a cliff hanger, it more than deserves a comeback.
In The Flesh (2013-2014)
A drama based on tasteful zombies with LGBT+ representation, In The Flesh got cancelled to the mass disappointment of the entire fanbase who are still tweeting #saveintheflesh years later. With action packed scenes, characters and plot lines that will probably make you cry, this show is the definition of addicting. Similarly to Agent Carter, In The Flesh ended on a cliffhanger that had all fans just WANTING more and with Dominic Mitchell having a new season ready to go, there really is no reason to not bring this show back.
A more recent addition to television, Sense8 is full of diversity, heart-wrenching characters that you cannot help but invest your time into and good plotlines. This show was the talk of social media when it first came out. In fact, it probably still is and when Netflix cancelled it, Twitter literally went into uproar (I’m pretty sure there were even multiple petitions!). This show meant a lot to viewers with what it depicted and because of that, it deserves another season, in fact another 10 seasons.
How do I describe Skins? A show encapsulated by its comedy, sexual themes and teenage drama, it was the talk of every viewer during its time on air. With each new generation, we got new plotlines, new characters that we couldn’t help but fall in love with. Don’t pretend you didn’t cry at least once. We all did and because of that, Skins deserves the biggest comeback.
