Log in to copy items to your own lists.
My So-Called Life (1994 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A 15-year-old girl and her trials and tribulations of being a teenager and dealing with friends, guys, parents and school. (60 mins.)
“ This show is really smart and so dramatic it's addictive! I guess it's just too damn smart (and real; and serious) for TV. Only 19 episodes, what a shame. ” - zaladoidfilms
Home Movies (1999 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
Brendon Small, an ambitious eight-year-old filmmaker, shoots movies in his basement with his two best friends, while coming to terms with adolescence, life, and relationships. (30 mins.)
“ This show only lasted 5 EPISODES in it's original run on the UPN. I mean, 5 episodes, come on. It had the lowest rating in the history of it's timeslot.

After it's resurgence on Adult Swim, Home Movies gained a lot of popularity, but it's still a great show that most people don't know about. ” - zaladoidfilms
Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist (1995 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
A divorced father, he has custody of his 23-year-old slacker son Ben, who dreams of wealth and freedom but is too lazy to find a real job... (30 mins.)
“ From the same creators as Home Movies, Dr. Katz wouldn't have even existed if it didn't become a vehicle for guest comedians. This show lasted 6 seasons, but never got really popular, despite the fact that it was probably the first smart cartoon. ” - zaladoidfilms
King of the Hill (1997 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A straight laced propane salesman in Arlen, Texas tries to deal with the wacky antics of his family and friends, while also trying to keep his son in line. (30 mins.)
“ Despite the fact that King of the Hill gave us 13 years of outstanding service, it never really became a sensation like The Simpsons of Family Guy. It was a subtle show about Texas, propane, and propane acessories. Oh well, at least it wasn't cancelled too early like My So-Called Life or Home Movies. ” - zaladoidfilms
The Simpsons (1989 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
The satiric adventures of a working-class family in the misfit city of Springfield. (22 mins.)
“ This sounds like a weird choice for underrated, but nobody can even mention The Simpsons without saying, "It's declined in quality." So? Even the bad episodes aren't that bad. I'd sooner watch Season 10+ Simpsons than a lot of crap on TV. Some episodes from those years are on par with Golden Age Simpsons, too, but nobody knows that because they never watched Season 10+ Simpsons, or admitted to watching it. ” - zaladoidfilms
Beavis and Butt-Head (1993 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Animated MTV series about two teenage heavy-metal music fans who occasionally do idiotic things because they're bored. For them, everything is "cool" or "sucks." (15 mins.)
“ From the creator of King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-head was bashed by parents and the non-MTV public as being "stupid" and "bad for children." Actually, it was a smart show that showed us what kids are actually like, not TV kids that we want our kids to be like.

Huh huh. That was cool. ” - zaladoidfilms
