I been rewatching some old tv shows that weren't very popular and I was thinking I kinda of miss these shows they are kinda of forgotten so I was thinking do you guys have any shows like this? here's mine.

Third Watch 1999-2005 Police drama with paramedics and firefighters the later seasons go over the top which I found entertaining as ridiculous as it was I enjoyed this show.

The new Twilight zone 2002 hosted by Forest Whitaker only lasted one season I liked it really wish this show lasted longer.

Tru Calling 2003-2005 starting Eliza Dushku that worked at the morgue she could go back in time and save the dead.

Fastlane 2002 only lasted one season basically two undercover cops get into the criminal world with over the top flashy cars and woman this show reminded me so much of the original fast and furious movie.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles lasted two season 2008-09 was getting really good than got cancelled of course.

How To Make It In America (2010-2011). It only had two seasons and it wasn't any kind of amazing groundbreaking tv show, but it was really nice with likable characters, cool setting and some charm. It was a comedy-drama a bit in the same vein as Entourage (same exec producers), but not as over the top. It followed the life of a designer and his friend, hustling their way through New York City's fashion scene, determined to achieve their vision of the American Dream.

Spaced (1999-2001). Only two seasons and it feels like it's a bit forgotten by everyone, which is weird because it's Edgar Wright's tv show before he went to make movies and it clearly shows a lot of influences and concepts that are still present on his movies to this day. The show is hilarious and features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who have been doing movies with Wright since then. The rest of the casting of the show also have minor roles on most of his movies.

CloneHigh (2002-2003). Only one season but what a damn funny and clever season that was. Probably one of my favorite animated shows. Created by Phil Lord and Chris Miller of Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street fame, it tells the story of an high school populated by the clones of famous historical figures but none of them have actually have the same personality as their descendants. It's a fantastic parody of teen dramas, with some absurd and high energy humor.

Reaper (2007-2009). Monster-of-the-week horror comedy, notable for having Ray Wise as Satan. It was actually really good, and I never see it brought up much.

In a similar (albeit far bloodier) vein was Todd And The Book Of Pure Evil (2010-2012), although the cult following is building on that one as word continues to get around.

Clone High and Mission Hill were short lived animated shows that never made much of a mark on their original run, but found a new life on the Canadian Teletoon Network. I'm not sure how well Americans remember them, if at all, but they have a bit a cult status here.

Clone High was from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, now known for Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie, 22 Jump Street, and they're making the Han Solo film. I love their manic, high energy humor and it plays especially well in their animated work. It's all there in Clone High. "Did you see the pool? They flipped the bitch!"

Mission Hill was a fairly grounded sitcom about a nerdy kid moving in with his older brother in the city. It was created by Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, former show runners for The Simpsons.

Police Squad. It is pretty much The Naked Gun: The Series.

Highly underrated at the time (the myth says the series was cancelled because it required the audience to actually pay attention, for a change), the only caveat is that it is only 6 episodes short.

Titus was a really good sitcom based on Christopher Titus' stand-up routine, which itself was ostensibly based on his dysfunctional upbringing. I kick myself for not buying the DVD box set before it went out of print.

@tom_omb: Oh man! Clone High! Mission Hill! Me and my best friend still quote Clone High to each other. Good picks. I remember a few other shows that accompanied them as well, it's a little bit hazy given how long ago they originally aired in my parts (Canada also), but I remember Clone High, Mission Hill, Undergrads, John Calahans Quads, Oblongs and maybe there was another one? Either way there was this stretch of all of these one season cartoon shows that aired together that I still have fold memories (if not DVD's of) I remember that as silly as Clone High was, I was still invested in the characters.

@jec03 There is one vivid memory of that 2002 Twilight Zone that has always stuck in my head since I watched it. Only saw it the once, never even heard people talk about that show since, but the scene where Lou Diamond Phillips is watching his kid play EA's Lord of the Rings: Two Towers and a cutscene is on screen and the characters are acting like they are playing the cutscene. My young brain just fixated on that and went no, NO! NO SHOW, NO! And never let go.
Funny thing is I'm sure I enjoyed the show, I like shows like that, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Masters of Horror, etc. That scene just broke my stupid little brain.

I re-watched Oz a little while ago, I know it was kind of big when it first came, but I haven't heard word one of it since, some shows stick in the public consciousness, but that seemed to come and go. I think it was perceived as something other than it was. But man what a good show. You need the ability to look past the fact that the prison stays open though, like there are so many instances of outright murder and general chaos that occurs that it's insane, even for a prison, but it's great.
I respect media that makes me sympathize with people, then flips it around then flips it back again, especially wherein most of the characters were pretty bad guys at time.

Soap: A couple of years ago, my dad got a Roku for Christmas and I added my Netflix account to it. While browsing for shows he would watch (i.e. older shows), we came across Soap. Over the Christmas holiday, I think we watched the first two seasons, and then we waited for whenever we were both in town to watch a few more episodes. The first episode or two are a little slow, but it quickly picks up from there and turns into a ridiculously funny show. That show has a lot of good comedic acting, writing, and absurd setups. In some ways it is a show of the time, but in some ways that also adds to the comedy. Like the show at some point randomly parodies movies like The Exorcist that came out around that time. That pull makes more sense in terms of why would you make fun of that type of movie in this soap opera parody, but when those left turns happen it is really good dumb fun.

Maybe that show is more widely known among the older members of the site, but I've heard about Soap and a couple of other shows exclusively through my dad.

I think the Drew Carey Show is another is another unfortunate causality in the home video music rights war. At least I would assume so, because only the first season is available on DVD. The Presidents of the United States of America must want their cut. Something like that.

Anyhow, would News Radio count as a forgotten TV show? How about Fawlty Towers, at least in the US, maybe? Those were both quite good.

The religious right tried so hard to censor that show or have it banned, and in some ways they succeeded. The story of The Soap Memo makes for some pretty good reading, if you haven't heard about it yet.

I don't know if this counts but Star Trek Enterprise was the first Star Trek I watched (watched it with my dad when I was younger) and it got my dad and I to basically sit down together every night for the entirety of my time in high school and watch every series of Star Trek after it got cancelled. Going back to it now, I still have a soft spot for it even though Next Generation was the series that really captivated me.

Enterprise seems like the series every Trekkie wants to forget.

@strangestories: I know a few Trekkies who like Enterprise. I think what puts fans off is it was slightly more grounded.

You're in luck though, apparently the new Star Trek series "Discovery" is airing this month and is a prequel to the original series much like Enterprise.

Personally i'd rather have them go further in the future but it doesnt really matter that much.

As for me I really liked Awake and was sad when it got cancelled. Jason Isaacs was great in it.

EDIT: The new Star Trek series is airing in May unfortunately.

@boozak: I think the grounded part is what I like. It shows humans in this developmental period between the massive wars that ravaged the planet and the altruistic space socialists 300-400 years later. Of course they're going to still be torturing people and grappling with the darker parts of humanity they haven't quite gotten rid of yet.

And yeah! Super excited for Discovery as long as they go back to episodes focusing on ethics and philosophical dilemmas and less on big wars.

Used to love this show as a kid, watched it all the time circa 2004-2008. No idea how it holds up now.

It's probably terrible.

(Not sure this counts cause it was quite popular back in the day. It's very much forgotten now though.)

Whose line is it anyway?

Love that show and really made me appreciate improv comedy. Before that I thought it was some high nose comedy for people who were in theater and thought they were better than the world. Ryan's blue shoes still give me faith in humanity.

Night Stand with Dick Dietrick.

My brother and I still joke about this dumb show "Two" that was on in the mid-late 90s where a guy had an evil twin (he played both roles) who framed him for his wife's murder and he had to live on the run like the Fugitive.

While we're on the subject: "My Brother and Me" on Nickleodeon. Goo. Cool Dr. Money haircut. Etc. Etc.

My DVR still has subscriptions to a graveyard of discovery, history and natgeo channel docureality shows that are probably never coming back. Honorable mention:

Building Wild - These guys built some of the coolest cabins for people who owned a bunch of wooded property. I was in total awe of what they built every episode.

Dangerous Grounds - Guy who sourced new and interesting coffee varieties to sell in his upscale coffee shops. When he was sourcing coffee around the globe he was basically Indiana Jones stumbling around jungles and having guns pointed at him and stuff and carrying bags of coffee beans out of the mountains on donkeys and and shit like that.

Space: 1999 was one of the first sci-fi TV series I watched with my mother back in the 80's. She was a huge influence on my love of sci-fi.

The miniature effects work in this show was superb. Martin Landau and Barbara Bain were just excellent. I think Space: 1999 is a better TV sci-fi show than the original Star Trek, but granted they are pretty different shows.

Pan Am. I'm not going to say it was by any means good but British Spy Woman's narrative thread is unresolved. I mean, there's some 'back from the dead' business which we'll never get to discover. Also, I still giggle at the media calling it Mad Men on a Plane.

One is The Wayan Bros. I use to look forward ever week for that show. Then it was not on the air. I kept thinking it was on hiatus or moved to another time slot. It never came back. It did not end in a cliffhanger but after being on the air for five years. It never got a final episode.

Loading Video...

The second is Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future. It had a darker tone and had mature themes for a kids show. Which is why I liked it at the time. It only lasted one year in syndication because the toy line did not sell very well, production costs and complaints from parent groups over the violence in the show. The show was ahead of it's time with the use of CGI and action figures for interactive games. I also had a crush on Jessica Steen.

Agreed. Also, A few years ago I was looking up stuff about Pushing Daisies and started looking at other stuff Bryan Fuller had done. Saw a show called Wonderfalls that only got one season, so I watched it. I really liked that one, too. Might want to check it out if you never have.

Nurses - It was a comedy show from theearly/mid 90's, set in a hospital that only ran a few seasons. I believe it was written by the same team that wrote Golden Girls and as a result was set in the same continuity. So you had characters from Golden Girls showing up in random episodes

Night Stand with Dick Dietrick.

I loved this show. Especially when there was a sleazy pun followed by Dick looking confused as to why the audience was laughing followed by him saying "Oh, no! people no!"

It wasn't my favourite but maybe someone can help me with the name of this show. I only saw about two or three episodes of it but I liked it, then the channel it was on stopped showing it or moved it to another time.

Story was about a guy in his late 20's or early 30's who wakes up one day and he's a teenager again but he has complete knowledge of his life up to his actual age.

Think it came out in the early 2000s.

*EDIT*

Maybe it was called Do Over.

Neither of them are forgotten, but I don't think many people seem to follow Schitts Creek or People of Earth, both being shows stuck in the limbo that is basic cable sitcoms. In the case of the former in the US, I don't think many people have even heard of the network the show airs on--that would be "Pop"--much less the show itself. That's a shame, too, as it's well-written and has a darn good cast.

@shagge: Jeez, yeah, I'd forgotten Reaper ever existed. That was a fun show on its own, but Ray Wise as the devil was something special.

As for me, its Better Off Ted: A Fox workplace sitcom (I know, I know) from 2009-2010. Only 26 episodes over two seasons, but they were hilarious. Basically the closest I've seen another network show get to being Arrested Development (it helps that Portia de Rossi is one of the stars).

I liked Defying Gravity (TV series)
It follows the mission of eight astronauts on board the international spacecraft Antares, the whos ambitious manned space mission is to land of all 8 (or was it still 9) planets in the solar system. Most of the crew at teh start thinks it is merely a scientific mission, but they soon figure out what the commander knew; the mission was to make contact with 'alien artifacts' on each planet that are talking to 'alien artifact' found on earth. There is also a B-story line about strained relationships and rivalries among the crew.

The premise was good, but it was likely a show that needed a much bigger budget. The biggest issue the show had, which was stupid in retrospect, is they tried to make it seems like the ship had little or no gravity. They seems to have done a lot of expensive scenes where people seems to be floating - Deifying Gravity. They should have had them floating for a few minutes an then "spun up" some centripetal force so people could just WALK around. And...yeah...do that even if they had to change the name of the show! Probably, it was an expensive gimmick that was not really worth teh effort in a space show, all teh moneys shoudl have gone to other special effects and writing.

@dynamix: I came in here and immediately did a "ctrl F" for The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. I loved that show. It was way before it's time, the cast was awesome, and the story was super fun and interesting. It was also my first introduction to Bruce Campbell (I was too young for Evil Dead films) and I pretty much became obsessed.

I'm so glad someone else came here to post the same thing. :D

I miss Revolution. I am still pretty pissed how that show ended! I understand rating drops and blah, blah, blah, but at least give the creative team time to finish the story the way they want to. But it's cool, go ahead and announce that you are cancelling a show 2 episodes before the midseason finale.

Strangers with Candy

Amy Sedaris plays a middle-aged, washed up prostitute who upon just being released from prison decides she wants to turn her life around by going back to high school. Stephen Colbert plays her closeted gay social studies teacher. It takes a few episodes to find its rhythm, but if the description sounds appealing to you, you'll probably be into it. I'd recommend starting with episode 4, where the principal tries to get Amy Sedaris to rat out her lockermate, who the school administration suspects is retarded, and thus dangerous. Yes, this show actually found it's way on the airwaves at some point. It is stupid and hilarious.

in terms of something not yet mentioned: Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. the premise is a little complicated, but if you're a fan of british comedy (or just good comedy writing in general) you owe it to yourself to check it out (available on youtube).the tl;dr description is: a shitty fake british stephen king produced a terrible medical/horror drama series in the 80s, and the show is a revisiting of the series (complete with fake actor interviews). the show manages to do the whole 'fake-terrible' thing EXTREMELY well. i mean, look at this fake promo art:

  • Bill Nye the Science Guy
  • Magic School Bus (Which Netflix is bringing back)
  • Rugrats
  • Rocko's Modern Life
  • Hey Arnold!

Props to the shout outs to Hey Arnold and Rugrats! Those were my favorite shows when I was growing up. Plus, I think Nickelodeon has mentioned that they have thought about rebooting Rugrats. As for Hey Arnold, there's a movie that's been greenlit for production called Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie, which is suppose to be a follow up to the two part series finale "The Journey".

As for my pick for forgotten shows, would Friday Night Lights count? That was a really well made show that had some great commentary on the pressure of coaching a high school football team, the pressure on players to win every game and the other issues that happen to these characters on and off the field.

@mellotronrules: I feel like Darkplace was even fresher in the memory because I had watched that Stephen King hospital series thing.

Something makes me wonder what the hell Monkey Dust would be in 2017.
