Don't know if any one here misses any shows that have been on T.V & since never shown again, for me it has to be 'The Last Train' that was shown bakc in 1999 & I regret that I didn't record it & wish that I had now

The Ace of Wands

I've just started a thread on 'The Tomorrow People', but 'The Ace of Wands' was yet another Thames Television childrens series from the early seventies that, in common with a number of contemporary programmes, was an adventure series with a fantasy element.

I first discovered it while on holiday. My family were caravaning, and the junior members of the family who owned the caravan site invited me in to watch their favourite TV programme. When I got back home I found it incredibly hard to catch it again, and for some reason it was rarely repeated, and never shown again after 1974.

This site has all the details: http://www.aceofwands.freeserve.co.uk/ace.htm. I actually can't remember much about it, except that I liked it and was frustrated that I could never get to see it again. In comparison, 'The Tomorrow People' has often been reshown, and was on the Sci-Fi Channel late every night for about a year.

When I saw 'The Tomorrow People' again it was quite awful, so no doubt 'The Ace of Wands' would be equally as bad, but I've never had the opportunity to see it.

I miss Freedom. It came on UPN for about half a season. I loved that show. And I only have one on tape. :(

Now that Macgyver isn't being shown on WGN now I miss it too. Although it isn't a scifi show. :)

A second for Babylon 5. Personally, my favourite piece of Sci-Fi ever and such a waste by Warner Brothers.

I also miss Farscape. I hear that it may be resurrected though. Great news!!!

Obviously, I still miss Firefly.

If Firefly had been CW intend of Fox, It would still be on the air.

Caprica. An incredible drama with a scifi fusion. Started off thinking I'd hate it with the teen stuff but it then broke new ground with its philosophy on religion and AI. And of course the promise with where it was going and the first appearance of The Final Five would have made it phenomenal.

HAH! My first thought on seeing the title of this thread - even before I opened it was "The Tomorrow People". I have a disc of the first 'adventure' and I've never watched it beyond the opening titles because of my fear of crushing disappointment.

What I miss from TV (not that I watch any these days) - is the type of show that would take you somewhere different every episode. The portmanteau shows like Out of the Unknown,The Outer Limits, Twilight Zone... Shows without recurring characters that you would expect to survive the episode no matter what and who would be back again next week.

I liked not knowing what was going to happen.

Re: Sliders
The first Season of Sliders was great. Unfortunately, it doesn't get better as it continues. They develop a long story arc (which was a good idea if it could have been better developed) and suffers from cast changes. It got cancelled then was picked up again but only for one season so it doesn't properly end. However, I'd say I miss it too. It might be worth re-watching.

The show really went down hill when john Ryes Davies left.
