Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I loved Freaks & Geeks! I wished there had been more than ones season! I also loved GCB!!! I was awfully sad when they took it off the air!

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Freaks and Geeks was ahead of its time.

That was another great show.

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I miss GCB as well!

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Was Buffy underrated?  It is such a pop culture phenom that I always thought it was overrated.  Smiley Happy  (Not a bad show, just didn't love it)

 

LOVE Firefly.  I own the movie & show on DVD & BD.  Can't bring myself to buy the comics, though.

 

USA's Nikita was really great - loved Peta Wilson in the  role since she could pull off sexy but really rocked that tough girl vibe.  Ending wasn't my fav, though.

 

My list:

Firefly

Veronica Mars (Yay for upcoming movie!!)

Pushing Daisies

Wonderfalls

Dead Like Me

Moonlight

Freakazoid (old and animated love of my childhood)

 

I love these shows (own all but Wonderfalls on DVD).  It makes me happy to just know they're available to view whenever my tiny little heart desires.

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Ohhhhh,

how could I have missed Veronica Mars.... I LOVED that show!!!!

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I LOVED PUSHING DAISIES! The writer's strike killed that show. Smiley Sad

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

The strike ruined Heroes for me.

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

It was a sad time in TV!

This is how I felt when it was cancelled...

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

comfyrock, OMG yes. It was a great show, then the strike and it all went downhill. 

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Wow we should watch tv together. Most of those shows are favorites of mine! Firefly is my all time favorite, along with the movie Serenity. And LOVE Veronica Mars, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me. I'm not familiar with your last two.

 

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Aw!  I wish.  Most people I know only know of the shows I love, much less love them.

 

Freakazoid was one of those Spielberg animated projects that he did in the mid to late 90s.  I actually liked his animated stuff - loved Invasion American - but Freakazoid was my love because it was so wildly crazy.  I was still growing up then but at that awkward age where cartoons were mostly too young in content to be interesting but I still like cartoons (oh who I am kidding?  I still love cartoons!).  Spielberg was perfect.  His animated stuff was mature without ever being too grown up (unlike Simpsons).  Perfect for a teenager!

 

As for Moonlight, it was underrated for a reason.  It wasn't exactly a glorious show.  It was a remake (though I thought it was a better version) of an 80s show whose name I can't remember (Blood Knight?).  It was killed off thanks to poor critical reviews and that infamous writers' strike.  Still, it got Jason Dohring on my screen, if only for a short while.  I adore that man.

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Sounds like we're all Firefly and Veronica Mars fans around here. Dead Like Me was so good but I really wish they hadn't done that last little mini-thing they did - it stunk that it was cancelled but that was no way to wrap it up.

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Moonlight! I still wonder about Mick St. John.  :  )

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Pushing Daisies was the BEST! As was Dead Like Me (although the movie/wrap up thingy was horrible).

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

OMG yes moonlight!!! SO sad =(

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I thought that Buffy had good ratings.  They kept it going for longer than I thought it would last.

 

1) Firefly

2) Kindred: The Embraced

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I posted this in your other thread yesterday (so I'm repeating myself!), but I have to say it again -- for me, it's Arrested Development, x infinity. While I wasn't alone in my AD adoration (it has a cult following), it didn't get the ratings it needed to continue past its third season, which was cut short. It was revived recently by Netflix six years after going off the air, though; I was ecstatic. 

 

I remember La Femme Nikita -- from the mid-90s? Smiley Happy

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

Yes that is the La Femme Nikita I am talking about.

I really liked Michael (eye candy) Smiley Happy

 

I am going to have to watch Arrested Development, you have me sold!!!

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I didn't watch it myself, but I did watch a show that came on before or after it (Silk Stalkings? The Big Easy (which was really short lived)? I'm not sure!). 

Re: Name a TV show that you loved, but was terribly underrated.

I have two shows I loved but they were canceled on me abruptly, and with no closure:

 

1. USA Necessay Roughness

2. Lifetime The Client List- I'm really upset by this one.

 

i need the show to at least tie up some lose ends and give me answers.
