Parks and Recreation 92%


#10The write-in vote was overwhelmingly led by variations on “none,” including “no more f***ing reboots!” Otherwise, Parks and Recreation, Chuck, Almost Human, Timeless, Penny Dreadful, and Hannibal got mentions among many, many others. Keep the faith, Dark Passengers!

Friends 78%

#9After 10 seasons, these friends had enough — but apparently you haven’t. Will Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Monica (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler (Matthew Perry), and Ross (David Schwimmer) be there for you? Truth? Probably not.


True Blood 69%

#8By the end, star Anna Paquin seemed quite eager to hang up her Sookie Stackhouse accent, which probably was reflected in the Tomatometer scores for seasons 6 (40%) and 7 (44%). Without those scores, the series averaged nearly 80%.


Freaks and Geeks 100%

#7This Certified Fresh one-season wonder from Judd Apatow and Paul Feig starred a crew of actors who would go on to bigger — not always better — projects: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, John Francis Daley, Jason Segel, Martin Starr, and Samm Levine. Could the charm of the original series really be recaptured in a revival or a — gasp — reboot? We think not.


The West Wing 75%

#6You’ve been fantasizing about President Bartlet, too?


Fringe 90%

#5Initially suffering heavy comparisons to Fox’s The X-Files, the series, from creators J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci, would go on to take its place among the best sci-fi series of all time. No. 11, to be exact, on Rotten Tomatoes’ list.


Pushing Daisies 96%

#4Created by Bryan Fuller, the fantasy series starred Lee Pace as a pie maestro who could bring the dead back to life with a touch. If only we could do so with the series, which lasted only two short seasons, both of which are Certified Fresh. The series also starred Anna Friel, Chi McBride, Swoozie Kurtz, Ellen Greene, and Kristin Chenoweth.


The Office 89%

#3Yes, yes, everyone wants The Office back. Steve Carell is busy crafting Oscar-worthy performances, however.


Battlestar Galactica 95%

#2Fringe may have taken 11th position on our “100 Best Sci-Fi Shows of All Time” list, but Ronald D. Moore’s space opera took No. 1. We miss it too!


Firefly 85%

#1It is truly a marvel that Firefly lasted only one season — one Certified Fresh at 85% season! And it seems that 2005 film Serenity did little to sate your appetite for Nathan Fillion’s Mal and his oddball crew of space survivalists. Fillion can be seen in new ABC drama The Rookie, which popped up on our list of the new fall series you’re most looking forward to. Firefly also starred Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and Ron Glass.
