Shows That Are Crying Out for Minisodes

Or webisodes... I'm not picky I'll take either. Between the strike and the normal summer hiatus, we've been chomping at the bit to see any little glimpse of our favorite shows. The Office, Heroes and Rescue Me have responded by giving us minisodes and webisodes to hold us over and keep our interest until they finally return. Here's our list of other shows currently on hiatus that should do the same... and stat.

24: We're not talking about some random person on the show who we've never seen before getting the spotlight either. If you are going to give us some bonus material... it better be good. Like giving some backstory on newbie characters like Janeane Garofalo, or an hour in the life of new madame president Cherry Jones.

Lost: Penny and Desmond on a boat. What are they doing? Well... aside from the obvious. Are they on the run from her dad? Where are they hiding out? After the engaging "Constant" episode, inquiring minds want to know.

30 Rock: I miss you Liz Lemon. And sure I don't expect Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan and Alec Baldwin to cut their summer vacations short, I'd love if they did, but I'm not living in fantasyland. But can't they follow Kenneth as maybe he makes a return home to see his momma? If not, maybe it could be the Twofer and Frank show. The two of them roaming around New York would be good times.

Dexter: Until our favorite serial killer comes back, how about spending a day with Vincent? I'm sure his obsession with porn and other perversions would prove way more disgusting than any of Dexter's murders. And probably equally entertaining.

Battlestar Galactica: They've done it before. Now it is time to do it again. Last time they gave us life on New Caprica, this time... hell, it doesn't really matter what they do. Anything would be fine. Seriously. Random video diary entries from any of the newbie cylons, especially Tigh, would be excellent.

Dirty Sexy Money: Love this show, but it has been off the air so long that the details are getting kind of fuzzy. Personally, I'd love to see more of the Darling world through the eyes of Nick's celebrity worshipping daughter.

The Shield: Maybe they could follow Vic Mackey as he joins up with his three friends and turns into a big giant rock that helps fight crime. Oh wait, I'm getting my pop culture all confused. Maybe instead they could do flashback minisodes to when Shane was still alive. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Pushing Daisies: Like Dirty Sexy Money, I know I liked this show, but it is kind of a vague blur in my memory at this point. Webisodes would be a great way to bring them back into focus... and give us more Swoosie Kurtz!

Friday Night Lights Actually, the way they are cutting people just to make the show... I feel like I should hold off on requesting more of this one. Go along your merry way deep in the heart of Texas. I'll wait.

Dollhouse
It hasn't started yet, so technically we're not missing it, instead we're just waiting with baited breathe for the midseason premiere. A webisode or two would be very much welcomed... and since we haven't met the sidekicks yet, this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce characters aside from the kickass Faith, er Echo.
