What's a show that you liked that maybe didn't receive a lot of praise or just wasn't quite that popular?

For me it was Monk. Maybe because I sort of identified with Monk himself being a slightly obsessive compulvise and a clean freak. Plus the scripts for the show were mostly always good.

there was this show on sci fi called Dead Like me, I liked the concept and thought the show was pretty interesting. I guess they made a movie but for whatever reason the show didn't last. Seemed a shame, it was one of the few shows that was not based in reality TV. I think ha it been on a better time slot it might have made it

The Forgotten. It was a new twist on the drama and was really intriguing. It just didn't get the viewers, and I thought that was a shame.

LOL You could post a lot of times on this one because there are so many of them. I had mentioned The Forgotten. I could go back a long time and mention Cop Rock. Loved that thing.

Arrested Development, My OC

Arrested Development. It was one of the smartest comedies out there.

I remember it ran on FOX with The OC, the show I never thought was real as I lived in Orange County CA and never saw that OC. That's why I nicknamed AD "My OC" and tuned in every week. At the time I was living in Delaware and AD was my brief vacation to my Orange County (Huntington/Newport). :pop2:

Oh well, at least I'm back in SoCal.:dancing:

I never watched either of those, so really can't judge them. From what I've heard, though, they aren't my style. I'm very much a traditionalist.

It's an odd list. Brisco County was different, that's for sure. It was crazy and zany, but it did work. Cupid was good to a point but I'm not sure it was good enough to make this list.
