2. Super Mario Brothers -- All the games have merged into one in my memory. I still love Yoshi and the timeless music.

Top TV shows that left us too soon
5. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles -- A recent casualty
4. Undeclared -- A show about kids moving to college just when I was moving to college
