Everything old is new again in the world of television. Recently we’ve gotten the revivals of some of TV’s best cult-hit shows, including Twin Peaks, The Comeback and Arrested Development. But just because something is beloved doesn’t mean it should be brought back.

Here are four shows that still need comebacks and five that need to be left alone.

How “The Good Wife” Provided Carrie Preston With the Perfect Escape

For Carrie Preston, slipping back into the eccentric role of Elsbeth Tasiconi onThe Good Wifecouldn’t have come at a better time. The Emmy winner—she won in 2013 for playing the quirky lawyer on the hit CBS drama—had just lost her father when she returned to work onThe Good Wifeseason six.
"This time around, my father had just passed away, and so I went right into shooting fairly quickly after that. It was a little bit more of a challenge this time because I was still—I am still—in the grieving part, but it was a fun time," Preston told E! News about reprising the character. "It was a great escape too, to get inside this person who is so different than me and just enjoy having a moment away from my own life. With Elsbeth, you really don’t have room for anybody else’s thoughts when you’re playing her. You really have to stay focused on just her and spend time with her. Thankfully they gave me delicious things to do, so it was a welcome escape."

Do not make these movies into TV shows. K?
Haven’t you heard? Turning movies into TV shows is all the rage these days. “Monster-in-Law.” “Big.” “Rush Hour.” The list goes on. Chances are these proposed shows will never make it to air, but I’m worried. I’m worried this trend will continue and nothing will be sacred. NOTHING.
Dear Hollywood, don’t turn these movies into TV shows.
