25 Years of Fox Pilots

Since the Fox network is celebrating its 25th anniversary on April 22, I thought I should write a blog post in honor of it. First I thought I’d pick a show that Fox prematurely cancelled, but that would be like shooting zombies in a barn.

Then I realized, I have already blogged about enough Fox shows to keep the inhabitants of Omicron Persei 8 entertained until someone decides to reboot Single Female Lawyer. So, here’s a list in roughly chronological order. Some selections fit squarely into the “cancelled too soon” category while others, deservedly or not, continue to air. I’m up for suggestions as to others I should cover — just leave a comment.

21 Jump Street

The Simpsons and King of the Hill (covered in one handy post)

Beverly Hills 90210

The X Files

That ’70s Show (A partial cast reunion will be part of Fox’s anniversary special.)

Futurama

Titus

Firefly

John Doe

Wonderfalls

Bones

Fringe

New Amsterdam

Raising Hope

Bob’s Burgers

Breaking In

New Girl

The Finder

I also promise to review the Married…With Children pilot after Fox airs it on Sunday. I have never watched the show before, so it will be a true outsider’s view.
