Curious as to what you guys think are some of the best TV shows that no one talks about?

If nobody talks about them, they probably aren't going to last very long but some of my favorite have been Torchwood (ended), Please like me, The Art of More, and Conspiracy 365 (ended).  Grin Grin

Most of Bryan Fullers shows. Like Dead Like me, Pushing Daisies and Hannibal. Such good shows, but low ratings. A shame!

The Leftovers (HBO), weird show, but slowly built up and interestingly beautiful!!!

Yes to Dead Like Me!  Grin Loved it and it was so underappreciated!
Other good shows that aren't heard about much- You Me and the Apocalypse, and The Expanse!

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short.
But shout it at them in German, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

The Leftovers, definitely (season 1 was brilliant)
The Decalogue (Krzysztof Kieslowski series for Polish TV in the late 1980s)
Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (Norman Lear's soap opera parody from the late 1970s, which I'm watching now).

Don't say that... I prefer to think of Torchwood as "on hiatus"... Cry

Graham Patrick Martin played a hustler who had seen a murder in Griffith Park in Los Angeles near the end of The Closer, and his character and story line continued when the series was rejiggered into Major Crimes. Most of the regular characters are interesting and the way his character is treated is esp. enlightened in these troubling times.

Is he gay? Some think so, some don't, and for the longest number of episodes, it was not stated. And no one blinked or seemed to care anyway. The attractice straight actor has previously been seen mostly in tv comedies, esp. as the half-man's stoner friend in Two and a Half Men, before the ingrate started mouthing off about how he'd become a "Christian" and regretted being in such a sex-positive comedy series. Sure made a lot of money before he was enlightened, though, and the spaced-out scenes with Martin are a hoot.

An old interview with Martin about his character on the show is still worth reading:

Elsewhere in this forum I've spoken about the dead and forgotten Canadian series Alienated, taking place in a suburban area of Vancouver Island, where it was shot. The family has an encounter of the Third Kind and is transformed in highly sexual ways. The 14-year-old boy begins banging his teacher. Grandpa starts chasing anything in skirts. The husband who had lost interest in sex suddenly can't get enough of his wife, who used to want him, but.... And the lesbian daughter who comes out.

Maybe it's just me, but when sperm glows green after The Encounter, I thought the blatant innuendo was hot (but not visually indiscreet) when the kid is having a back seat makeout session with his teacher in a somewhat distant car and it concluded with a sudden flash of radiant green light.

Don't really watch that much TV.

I'm American so all of these are American shows.

I think the Twilight Zone remake a few years ago should have lasted longer than it did.

Orange is the new black is kinda underrated and people are just labeling it as a lesbian prison show, and it's so much more than that.

How to get away with murder is a very underrated show.

I'll add one more. 

Empire is kinda underrated.

Historically, and in the U.S., French and Saunders never got the real acclaim I think it deserved. Most people only knew it was the show that inspired Absolutely Fabulous. Which I was crazy for in my late teens, early 20's. Then in 2003, I started watching French and Saunders and... it easily surpassed my love for AbFab.
