5 Cult TV Shows We Wish Netflix Would Bring Back

Lost (2004-2010)

ABC's hit drama Lost was named the 27th best written TV series of all time by the Writers Guild of America, squished between ER and The X-Files.

Another show created by J.J. Abrams, along with Jeffrey Lieber and Damon Lindelof, the premise of the show was that a plane bound for Los Angeles from Sydney, Australia crashes near a remote island in the South Pacific. The 48 survivors of the crash are then subject to strange events and phenomenon on this mysterious island. Some survive, some don't survive the inner workings of the island.

With such a large cast, often times it was hard to navigate the multiple story lines going on at once, and the feeling that sometimes the show was drawn out. Yet, it was slowly revealed that not only were the characters connected to each other but they were on the island to each serve a purpose. Or were they in purgatory? Or who knows if most viewers ever really understood Lost, but given that the amount of off-air conversation the show generated, that could be positive for Netflix.

Lost won the 2006 Golden Globe award for Best Television Series - Drama. It also won numerous Emmy awards over the years. Lost came in No. 5 on TV Guide's "Top Cult Shows Ever."

Believe it or not, the show is coming up on the 10-year anniversary of the series premiere. A reunion is planned for Sunday, March 16 as part of the PaleyFest 2014 held in Hollywood, Calif.
