Teletubbies You are kidding right? Please tell me you are kidding

Boston Legal is by no means underrated, take a look at it's ratings, quite popular I say.

Dharma and Greg was pretty popular among viewers too.

I was actually looking for underappreciated hidden gem type TV shows, I mean great shows with very little popularity or fan followings

Those shows you mentioned, Brooklyn Nine Nine has a tremendous fan following.

It's hard to find hidden gems - minus the popularity factor...unless you live under a rock

I was a huge John Doe fiend. Fell right up on my alley on my lap or whatever they say. They cancelled it.

Anyone watched Sense 8? I think the storyline or concept was interesting. Bad acting though. (Hate to bag on Netflix, but they always rein in crappy shows...Sorry!)

It only lasted one season, there's not much... originally it was scheduled to aired 18 episodes, but only aired 12 then got canceled.

It has franco, rogen, Siegel. ..Judd Apatow involved.

I heard a lot about it, only reason I haven't watched it yet cuz I thought the humor in it might probably be a bit too old and cliché for my taste, anyways it is a legendary TV show no doubt about that.

I liked John Doe too, too bad they cancelled it after only one season, it currently ranks 8th in my list of great TV shows that got canceled too early 😂, Firefly tops the list

Gotta watch Undeclared then, seems impressive.

Can you suggest some more and also few from horror/mystery genre ? You know like twin peaks type, need some recommendations for binge watching, with semester already over and GF visiting her family I got absolutely nothing to do for next two weeks.

HOw old are you? There are so many things you can do for two weeks.... Please do yourself a favor and don't watch any series.. go find another gf. You live in India right? It's HUGE.. explore some areas of india by yourself.... research it as if you are a tourist visiting India and experience it that way...

alone trip is sometimes one of the best..

People are so damn boring these days..with their high speed internet...

I cursed the hell out of my 16 year old niece the other day because she was sitting home reading book and occasionally texting/using phone during her summer break. She stopped talking to me but I think i got the message across...

aklemalp wrote in one of the post here something in line of you being "under a rock" if you don't know about these shows... From this whole thread i only know the names of at max 3 or 4 shows and watched none. I would be worried if I knew all of them.

Please do not watch TV this whole 2 weeks and do something different.. and come back write about it here with pictures maybe.. I would love to read those instead of your reviews on season 10 of telechubbies.

I am 20 years old, a laid-back engineering student, already travelled length and breadth of South India and can't really afford to explore North and NE India at the moment, I am doing a post semester industrial training else would have been chilling somewhere in the Himachal with friends. Since this is not possible guess I would be stuck here with my rock for some time, be watching my favorite TV shows, hitting pubs occasionally and going out fishing in weekends, not complaining though.

Anyways thanks for your valuable advice, I reckon you were a pretty adventurous soul in your youth.

Cant think of horror tv series which is good. If you liked Twin Peaks then perhaps try the two part mini series of The Shining. For movies you can see Feast (the first one only), Brain Scan, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Cabin in the Woods, Frightners.

If you are into anime then plenty of options. You can check the anime thread.

There's a show based on the novel by Stephen King being promoted on the Audience Channel...


It's called Mr. Mercedes

Question for you Roy...

Why do you wanna watch 'underrated' TV shows?

There are some brilliant TV shows that aren't underrated. You just have to look man
