SKY TV - PLEASE BRING IT BACK

When the Commish first started on Satellite TV (It never made
mainstream in the UK) I was hooked from the very first trailer. Michael
Chiklis is amazing and I have to admit to being a huge Stephen J
Cannell fan. The story lines may have had the usual servings of Cannell
Corn but thats what made him the king of 80's TV. Every programme on
satellite and cable gets repeated until the tape wears out so what
happened with the Commish? Every week since it ended in 1996 I have
looked in vain in the TV Magazines for its return. I recently found an
episode that I had taped on the tail end of a movie and was in cloud
nine. Now that the Shield is gaining more and more popularity it is
easier to have faith that some TV execs will dust off the old episodes
of the Commish and unearth a classic. I can only hope.
The Commish is definitely the best show ever produced on television. It had
a perfect balance of comedy and drama. Every episode was filled with clever
twists and turns that made each and ever show original. No other program on
television has or will ever come close to The Commish's unique chemistry.
Every single character on the show is far beyond memorable.

Could very well be the best show ever on television!

"The Commish" as hard-hitting, heartfelt, and brilliant ABC dramatic
found and home and met it's end in the early nineties. "The Commish" and
"Matt Waters" were cancelled, while shows like "Caroline in the City" and
"Suddenly Susan" continue. The world is anarchy.
There is nothing more I can say as I pull back the tears. I loved "The
Commish," and I wasn't the only one. We all did. It kept us going.
