"Dallas" premieres Wednesday night on TNT (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN), and the resurrection of the primetime soap got us thinking: what other series do we wish would return to the small screen, picking up where they left off?
Imagine being able to find out what happened to that beloved character you used to check in with every week. Here are just a few series that we'd want to see get the "Dallas" treatment:
"My So Called Life"
Oh, Angela Chase, wherefore art thou? The angsty teen played by Claire Danes would be in her early 30s by now, and we are dying to discover whether Jordan Catalano got his act together and if he and Angela are parents living in the suburbs.
Two words: Steve Urkel.
The world's most famous African American nerd had finally won the heart of his long-time love Laura Winslow, who accepted his marriage proposal in the 1998 series finale.
So did they get married? Did Urkel's alter-ego, the dashing Stefan Urquelle (also played by the actor who portrayed Urkel, Jaleel White) attend the wedding? And more importantly, who did the kids turn out to look like?
"Boy Meets World"
When last we left Corey Matthews and his childhood sweetheart-turned-lovely wife Topanga, they were pursuing their dreams in New York. Did they make it there or did they make it anywhere? True confession: We really want to see if Corey's best friend Shawn is still hot!
Now here is a show that was gone too soon.
We had a serious thing for teen sleuth V. Mars, and we know that she'd be a super successful FBI agent by now, or maybe even a profiler. The possibilities for cases would be endless.
Viewers already heard the voice of adult Kevin Arnold (played as a youth by Fred Savage and voiced as an adult by Daniel Stern), and they also learned a bit about Kevin's adulthood in the series finale. But the cynic in us is still hoping that he ended up with Winnie. Is that wrong?
What shows would you want to see return?
