    Forgotten? Maybe. Underrated? In what universe.

    Yeah, that show was definitely underrated. There's certainly a cult following for it but it didn't get the "love" it deserved. One of the streaming services I sub to regularly recommends it to me: kind of makes me smile when I see that. I haven't re-watched the entire series in a few years but I still check out an episode here and there.

    I agree with many already mentioned, Better off Ted, SeaQuest, Terra Nova, Farscape.

    I'd have to add Babylon 5 and its spinoff Crusade, Earth: Final Conflict, Sliders, and Almost Human.

    Hmmm, I never picked up on Pushing Daisies. That show has some pretty high ratings. Added to my watch list.

    Oh man, Sliders AND Farscape: underrated and sadly forgotten. Great scifi shows imo.

    All right, forgotten works for me. I thought being forgotten meant underrated.

    That show was f***ing awesome. Shame that it doesn't pop up on any of my "suggested" feeds more often.

    And it's not in any of the major streaming services. I understand they ran into a lot of copyright issues considering all the great music featured in it.

    It was on Netflix then moved to Hulu but they do replace a lot of songs with soundalikes. Ive got the DVD version from awhile back that has all but a couple of songs replaced.

    The Expanse is an amazing sci-fi series that clearly does not get enough attention, I barely know anyone who's watched it which is sad.

    Legion was also really really good.

    there was 1 season of a show called Flash Forward that I watched and I thought it was amazing but I haven't talked to anyone else who knows of it

    We cannot go back. That's why it's hard to choose. You have to make the right choice. As long as you don't choose, everything remains possible.

    Nobody talks about Versailles.

    Extremely good show on Netflix.

    The expanse is freaking amazing, When Sci Fi Canceled it I was shocked. Thank you amazon for picking it up.

    Also, Add another to the farscape tally. SO very underrated

    Definitely not underrated, but just a bit forgotten.
    Why am I back here, I don't even play these games anymore

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Forever. Only had one season and was booted off and replaced with "Last Man on Earth" Like what the hell. Basic plot or something was a well over 200 year old Immortal working in New York as a Forensic specialist for people that died (I think, its been a long time since I saw it). He has a 50 year old son that runs a thrift store (The actor that plays him is the dude that plays the father in Independence Day.) and will occasionally help him with cases. Even though he can't age, he can still die, but with embarrassing results.

    When he became immortal, he was killed out in sea with a flintlock pistol and tossed overboard. Thus, when he dies, he resurfaces in the nearest body of water naked. In New York. They introduced the villain near the end of the season who was over 2000 years old, but once he was bested, the show ended.

    Also want to (I guess?) shout out for Rizzoli and Isles, Bones, Closure and its Major Crimes counterpart.

    That show was awesome, my wife and I loved it. Ended without tying anything up too thanks to the writers strike.

    Also, Chuck.

    My favourite show of all time, yet due to a number of factors it went under the radar somewhat. I didn't even see it when it was running but later on Netflix. It was constantly threatened with cancellation and saved largely by fan support via a Subway partnership. Show has great heart, with a torturous will they wont they thing (love those) and its packed with humour and pop culture nods. To call it a spy comedy doesn't really do it justice but I'd recommend to anyone and its pretty tame content wise so suitable for most viewers.

    I remember FlashForward, interesting premise. Especially the one guy who flashed forward to the moment he was about to kill himself, and had no idea why.
