Under-rated Television Shows

As I'm busy writing  a novel, I haven't worked on many projects this month. So today, we are going to look at a few under-rated television shows. Let me know your thoughts on the list, if you've seen them, and share any televisions shows you think deserved to make the list.


Carnivale:
This was an HBO show set during the depression following a traveling carnival and it had a fair bit of fantasy and magic thrown in. It was canceled too soon, and it's at the top of my list overall for television shows. The characters are engaging and the production values are amazing.




Jericho:

Possibly the quintessential post-apocalypse show. It was canceled twice. Border skirmishes, government conspiracy, and a small town trying to survive.


Journeyman:
Part Quantum Leap, part time travel. If you aren't interested already, then I can't help you.


Daybreak:
Groundhog day meet television. It was a cop mystery show with a time loop.


Life:
A great leading character portrayed by Damien Lewis before he found Homeland. A zen cop fresh out of prison, seeking revenge.









Six Feet Under:
Before he was Dexter, he was an undertaker. A character driven drama that follows a funeral home. It sounds dry, but it's engaging and difficult to put down.
