- My Name is Earl

- Jericho

- Space: Above and Beyond

- Earth 2

- Swingtown

But mostly

- Pan Am. Goddamn that show was super-awesome before ABC fucked it up.

I forget where I read it but supposedly the end of My Name is Earl was going to be Earl realizing he could never finish his list, but his goal had inspired other people to make their own lists. So he walks off into the sunset finally having put out more good karma into the world than bad.

Episode 1 of Raising Hope has a beat with a TV over a character's shoulder and a newscaster saying "In other news, a local man has finished his list!" or something. It was pretty rad. There's also this:

    Earth 2

That show had a decent thing going, and I was really disappointed how short it ran.

Yay. I've finally come across someone else who's seen Space: Above and Beyond.
