1. Dead Like Me (2003–2004)

TV-14 | 60 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

After being hit on the head by a toilet seat, a young temp clerk becomes a grim reaper in death.

Stars: Ellen Muth, Callum Blue, Jasmine Guy, Mandy Patinkin

Votes: 38,658

Dead Like Me is the sort of show that doesn't appeal to everyone, but get the right person watching it and they will fall deeply in love. Although that fact wasn't great for ratings, the humour and storytelling was amazing! The only down fall was that the show never shook the feeling like it was just waiting for the inevitable cancellation notice. It knew it was coming and I feel like it held back from going that extra distance with its mythology and storytelling because they knew it would only be harder to wrap up for the fans if they created longer, more complex arcs.

2. Reaper (2007–2009)

TV-14 | 45 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama

On his 21st birthday, Sam discovers his parents sold his soul to the devil before birth and he must now be a bounty hunter for the devil until he dies.

Stars: Bret Harrison, Tyler Labine, Rick Gonzalez, Missy Peregrym

Votes: 22,612

Reaper was always a little touch and go for me. Sometimes it felt like the writing didn't know what to do with such an amazing concept episode to episode. It may have gone around in circles one to many times trying to make up its mind. However, the actors held the show together and worked with what they had. Ray Wise, as far as I'm concerned, is the Devil. He just is. You can tell me he's just an actor and I will tell you that he's just got everybody fooled. Also, Bret Harrison needs a better agent. V. and Breaking In were tough luck, this guy deservers a show that doesn't get cancelled or panned. ”

3. Alice (2009)

Not Rated | 184 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy

Everything you know about Alice's adventures in Wonderland is about to be turned upside down in this modern-day miniseries event. Cast includes Kathy Bates, Caterina Scorsone, Matt Frewer, Harry Dean Stanton, and Tim Curry.

Stars: Caterina Scorsone, Andrew Lee Potts, Matt Frewer, Kathy Bates

Votes: 8,956

This retelling takes Alice and Wonderland into the future creating an entirely new world in which to set it's adventure 100 years after the original Alice. Andrew Lee Potts as Hatter is the sort of man that steals my heart no matter what character he's playing. Although this mini-series has the special effects of a tv movie it was fun to watch and has a surprisingly large online fanbase. However, I would recommend this mini-series for more of the romantic in you than the fantasy/sci-fi fan.

4. Blood Ties (2007)

60 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror

Vicki Nelson, a former homicide detective turned private investigator, and Henry Fitzroy, a 470-year-old vampire, form a unique team solving cases and dealing with the supernatural world.

Stars: Christina Cox, Dylan Neal, Kyle Schmid, Gina Holden

Votes: 5,994

Cancelled before vampires really hit it big, Blood Ties is a Canadian show that had a lot of promise. Combine the supernatural/paranormal with a detective drama and you get Blood Ties. Based off of a series of novels, Blood Ties focused a lot on the vampires but I spent most of my time wishing I was Christian Cox. She made an awesome female lead and I loved the character dynamics. Word of warning however, it's cancellation meant that the final episode was completely unsatisfying.

5. Pushing Daisies (2007–2009)

TV-PG | 44 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

A pie-maker, with the power to bring dead people back to life, solves murder mysteries with his alive-again childhood sweetheart, a cynical private investigator, and a lovesick waitress.

Stars: Lee Pace, Anna Friel, Chi McBride, Jim Dale

Votes: 51,846

Fact of the matter was that a show like Pushing Daisies was just too quirky for the good ratings it deserved. Amazingly creative, the show had the best dialogue and the tone was unlike anything I've ever seen on television. A remarkable spark wasted because of a flawed system.

6. Wonderfalls (2004)

TV-PG | 60 min | Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Jaye Tyler is a loner living in Niagara Falls who, after graduating college, has fallen into a care-free comfortable rut living in a trailer park and working as a retail clerk in the Falls ... See full summary »

Stars: Caroline Dhavernas, Katie Finneran, Tyron Leitso, William Sadler

Votes: 11,746

I was more then a little unsure of Wonderfalls at first, but the more I watched the more I got more into the story and characters. Until there wasn't anything left to watch, which made me sad. It was over too soon and I wish I had been given the time to form into everything it could have been. Another show too quirky for good ratings, but more than worth a watch.

7. Cold Case (2003–2010)

TV-14 | 44 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

The Philadelphia homicide squad's lone female detective finds her calling when she's assigned "cold cases", older crimes that have never been solved.

Stars: Kathryn Morris, Danny Pino, John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford

Votes: 22,910

Although Cold Case could be hit or miss episode to episode when it really got it right it was some truly amazing television. It was episodic almost to a fault with very few continuous storylines or long arcs. It's focus was less about the main cast and more about the murder. All that mattered was the mystery and how well the writing could pull it off. Which was sometimes great, sometimes not so much.

8. Numb3rs (2005–2010)

TV-PG | 43 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

Working for the F.B.I., a mathematician uses equations to help solve various crimes.

Stars: Rob Morrow, David Krumholtz, Judd Hirsch, Alimi Ballard

Votes: 37,791

Although Cold Case could be hit or miss episode to episode when it really got it right it was some truly amazing television. It was episodic almost to a fault with very few continuous storylines or long arcs. It's focus was less about the main cast and more about the murder. All that mattered was the mystery and how well the writing could pull it off. Which was sometimes great, sometimes not so much.

9. Lie to Me (2009–2011)

TV-14 | 43 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

About Cal Lightman, the world's leading deception expert who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to expose the truth behind the lies.

Stars: Tim Roth, Kelli Williams, Brendan Hines, Monica Raymund

Votes: 105,712

Lie to Me had a lot of potential, but lacked the focus it needed to make it great. For whatever the reason the writing never seemed to hit it's stride despite having an great concept and amazing actors. I had hope this would succeed, but under the constant threat of cancellation, the system got the better of it.

10. The Forgotten (2009–2010)

TV-14 | 60 min | Crime, Drama

A group of volunteers help find the identities of John & Jane Does who were murdered.

Stars: Christian Slater, Michelle Borth, Anthony Carrigan, Bob Stephenson

Votes: 2,136

As far as unique concepts go for crime dramas this is one of the most interesting I've seen so far. The Forgotten is about a volunteer network that look for leads in cold cases when the police are forced to move on. Find a new lead, reopen the file. A collection of misfits the cast of The Forgotten was great. But it was pretty obvious from episode one that this is the sort of show that was more likely to end up on the chopping block than a six season run. It had good bones, but just could compete in the genre.

11. The Finder (2012)

TV-14 | 44 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama

An Iraq war vet suffers a brain injury that triggers the ability to see connections between seemingly unrelated events, objects or people.

Stars: Geoff Stults, Maddie Hasson, Mercedes Mason, Michael Clarke Duncan

Votes: 14,174

The Finder had that perfect mix of humour, quirk, and crime. I don't think it ever stood a fighting chance, but it had the potential to be great. If it had continued I think it would have made my Top 10. Where it ended however, soured the whole thing. If you watch the show, do yourself a favour and skip the final episode.

12. Women's Murder Club (2007–2008)

60 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

A homicide detective, a medical examiner, a newspaper reporter and a young assistant district attorney work together to solve homicide investigations.

Stars: Angie Harmon, Laura Harris, Paula Newsome, Aubrey Dollar

Votes: 2,218

Based on The Women's Murder Club Series by James Patterson, but it just couldn't break good ground. Good concept, great cast, but it just wasn't enough to really grab me.

13. 100 Questions (2010– )

Comedy, Romance

A woman joins an online dating website and answers 100 questions in order to find her perfect match.

Stars: Sophie Winkleman, David Walton, Christopher Moynihan, Collette Wolfe

Votes: 817

I don't know what this show was going for, but it failed pretty spectacularly. Too polished and manufactured, this show got chopped faster then you can ask how it got the green light in the first place. Although, David Walton (who played the leading male role) really needs to get on a successful show! His gigs never seem to last past the 6 episode mark, which is a shame because I would not mind seeing more of his dashingly handsome face.

14. Breaking In (2011–2012)

TV-14 | 30 min | Comedy, Crime

A high-tech security firm takes extreme, and often questionable, measures to sell their protection services.

Stars: Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley, Christian Slater, Jennifer Irwin

Votes: 7,174

Breaking In is like that guy that dumps you after only few weeks and then calls you again two days later crying. I liked the first season, which was only seven episodes, well enough. It's full of amazing actors and if it was given a full, proper season it may have done well. But then FOX decided to act out it favourite Katy Perry song, Hot and Cold, while giving fans the jilt and confusing us all with it's wishy-washy approval process. Fox did their best to screw this one up and they succeeded in just that.

15. Common Law (2012)

43 min | Comedy, Crime

Centers on cops Wes Mitchell and Travis Marks, who have a problem, each other. So their captain sends them to couples therapy.

Stars: Michael Ealy, Warren Kole, Sonya Walger, Jack McGee

Votes: 5,810

Common Law had a simple character driven concept that was easy to consume and funny as hell. When your two main characters bicker like an old married couple it only makes sense that you should send them to couples counseling. The acting made the entire show stand out.

16. Endgame (2011)

60 min | Crime, Drama

Endgame is an original drama series centering on brilliant chess master, Arkady Balagan. Traumatized by the murder of his fiancée, Balagan has become a prisoner in his luxury Vancouver ... See full summary »

Stars: Shawn Doyle, Patrick Gallagher, Katharine Isabelle, Carmen Aguirre

Votes: 3,321

A Canadian show, I don't think this is one many people's radar, but it certainly should be. From a creative perspective a show like this one, purposely limiting in scope, should make it nearly impossible to write for. I don't know who came up with this one, but it's a pretty damn amazing idea. The acting is great and the way each character drives the story made me smile uncontrollably. Self contained this worked a lot better than I expected from it.

17. Friends (1994–2004)

TV-14 | 22 min | Comedy, Romance

Follows the personal and professional lives of six twenty to thirty-something-year-old friends living in Manhattan.

Stars: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc

Votes: 719,492

About two years ago my mother and I sat our butts down and watched Friends from start to finish. It took months to get through the whole show, but nothing compared to the experience of watching it in chronological order. A classic.

18. Sports Night (1998–2000)

30 min | Comedy, Drama, Sport

Casey McCall and Dan Rydell are sports anchors and best friends. On "Sports Night," their nightly cable program.

Stars: Josh Charles, Peter Krause, Felicity Huffman, Joshua Malina

Votes: 6,825

If you have any interest in sitcoms then Sports Night should already be on your watched list. It's another classic of the genre and one that is pretty universally loved by TV writers.

19. That '70s Show (1998–2006)

TV-PG | 22 min | Comedy, Romance

A comedy revolving around a group of teenage friends, their mishaps, and their coming of age, set in 1970s Wisconsin.

Stars: Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson

Votes: 143,999

I'm pretty sure the theme song is permanently playing on a loop somewhere in the back of my brain. It's a show that grows on you over time and was really easy watching. Unfortunately, it doesn't stand up to re-watching.

20. The Nanny (1993–1999)

TV-PG | 22 min | Comedy, Family, Romance

After being fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend, a cosmetics saleswoman becomes the nanny to the three children of a rich English widower. As time passes, the two fall for each other.

Stars: Fran Drescher, Charles Shaughnessy, Daniel Davis, Lauren Lane

Votes: 34,727

The Nanny was a staple of my childhood. It was adorable and odd in the best ways. Although it's another show that I have trouble re-watching. Nothing will ever be able to compare to the experience I had watching it as a kid.

21. Will & Grace (1998– )

TV-14 | 22 min | Comedy, Romance

Gay lawyer Will and straight interior designer Grace share a New York City apartment. Their best friends are gleeful and proud gay Jack and charismatic, filthy-rich, amoral socialite Karen.

Stars: Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally, Sean Hayes

Votes: 48,351

From before it was on trend to have a gay character on your cast this show was my first exposure to LGBTQ issues. Will & Grace was never very plot heavy, instead it's character driven nature kept things crazy with all the situations this cast got themselves into. This show was one I would run to the TV not to miss.

22. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1998–2007)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Game-Show

Improvisational comedy competition show in which four members of the regular cast as comedians and often with guest appearances with other comedians and celebrities and members of the audience perform various comic games and sketches.

Stars: Drew Carey, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, Laura Hall

Votes: 38,203

This is the sort of show that you find while browsing YouTube, then 5 hours pass and you realize your day has just completely past you by while watching these guys crack jokes.

23. 8 Simple Rules (2002–2005)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Drama

The Hennessy clan -- mother Cate, daughters Bridget and Kerry, and son Rory -- look to one another for guidance and support after the death of Paul, the family patriarch. Cate's parents lend a hand.

Stars: Katey Sagal, Kaley Cuoco, Amy Davidson, Martin Spanjers

Votes: 22,983

Sometimes simple is the best way to play it. The jokes didn't always hit, but this show was a good watch every once in a while. When I was in my family comedy phase this was a go-to. What I like about it now is that a lot of these actors went on to other successes so I can point at the TV and go "oh! oh! I know you!"

24. 10 Things I Hate About You (2009–2010)

30 min | Comedy

Kat and Bianca Stratford may be sisters, but all comparisons end there. Kat is an outspoken, independent feminist, while Bianca is a social butterfly who wants nothing more to be popular, ... See full summary »

Stars: Lindsey Shaw, Meaghan Martin, Ethan Peck, Nicholas Braun

Votes: 5,426

Let's be totally honest nothing is ever going to be able to compare to the amazing that was the movie and that was one hell of a hurdle for the show. Although I loved the choice of actors and it was cute, it was just never going to last.

25. Popular (1999–2001)

TV-14 | 60 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

Two girls who despise each other, due to being on opposite sides of the "popularity fence", are forced together upon learning that their parents are getting married.

Stars: Leslie Bibb, Carly Pope, Tamara Mello, Christopher Gorham

Votes: 5,807

Popular was the sort of show that I didn't love, I didn't even necessarily like it, but I couldn't stop watching. Somehow this became my guilty pleasure and gradually I couldn't help but indulge in some high school drama.

26. 15/Love (2004–2006)

Comedy, Drama, Family

"15/Love" is a comedy-drama about coming-of-age in a unique, high-pressure environment. The series follows a group of young hopefuls at the internationally renowned Cascadia Tennis Academy,... See full summary »

Stars: Laurence Leboeuf, Kyle Switzer, Meaghan Rath, Max Walker

Votes: 506

This was what a teen show used to look like before the advent of Hannah Montana. Characters that are real teenagers, dealing with real issues, actually trying to grow and evolve, discovering who they are and aren't. Now if only the show existed in a way people could actually watch it. No longer played as re-runs, not wildly available on DVD as far as I know, and gradually fading into obscurity. Such a awesome and distinctly Canadian show that deserves more attention then it got.

27. Life with Derek (2005–2009)

TV-G | 22 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

Comedy tracing the constant feud between Casey and her stepbrother Derek as they vie for control of their household.

Stars: Michael Seater, Ashley Leggat, Jordan Todosey, Daniel Magder

Votes: 4,436

Of the Disney sitcoms this is one of the more interesting ones. It's suppose to be about the relationship between a reluctant step-sister and step-brother and their conflicting personalities as they're forced to live under the same roof. However, what it turns into is the story of two attractive teenagers with enough chemistry and sexual tension between them to get noticed by everyone, except for Disney

28. Lizzie McGuire (2001–2004)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

The daily adventures of an adolescent girl whose real thoughts and emotions are expressed by her sarcastic animated alter ego.

Stars: Hilary Duff, Adam Lamberg, Robert Carradine, Lalaine

Votes: 16,359

Lizzie McGuire is old school Disney at it's finest. It's about girlhood and everyday life from friends, to school, to family, to bras. A total classic!

29. Naturally, Sadie (2005– )

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

The story of a 14 year old girl named Sadie Hawthorne, a bright girl who is very interested in nature and the behaviors of animals. Reaching beyond the limits of studying animals, she attempts to analyze humans.

Stars: Charlotte Arnold, Jasmine Richards, Michael D'Ascenzo, Justin Bradley

Votes: 900

This was a gem of a show. It hit that perfect mix of all the things kids deal with, while also standing out with a unique, natural mix of characters.

30. Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (2004–2007)

TV-G | 22 min | Comedy, Family

Ned Bigby shares his advice on how to survive middle school.

Stars: Devon Werkheiser, Lindsey Shaw, Daniel Curtis Lee, Kyle Swann

Votes: 14,704

I can't think of many pre-teen shows with a male main character leading the series. Ned is a stand out for taking the life-lesson formula and instead of trying to sneak into a story, wears it on it sleeve and makes it work within a narrative. Such a cute show!

31. Ruby & the Rockits (2009)

30 min | Comedy, Family, Music

A young girl must struggle with teen life, her casino-night-singer father, living with her uncle and cousins, and the fact that her father and uncle keep remembering when they were famous rock musicians in the 80's.

Stars: Alexa PenaVega, Patrick Cassidy, Katie A. Keane, Austin Butler

Votes: 446

It tired, but a show like Ruby & the Rockits just isn't going to survive unless it's on Disney. If this was done by Disney I don't doubt that it would have thrived. It was just aimed at too young of an audience for ABC Family. With anyone over the age of 13 getting increasingly interested in more serious shows, something so PG just isn't going to make out well.

32. So Little Time (2001–2002)

TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Family

Teenagers Riley and Chloe are subject to the trials and tribulations of school, family, friends, and boys.

Stars: Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Eric Lutes, Clare Carey

Votes: 1,807

This is a throwback to my early childhood. I sure as hell hope that kids these days are watching better television then I was.

33. The Suite Life on Deck (2008–2011)

TV-G | 30 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

Spin-off of the hit Disney Channel series "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," in which twin brothers Zack and Cody Martin and hotel heiress London Tipton enroll in a semester-at-sea program aboard a ship called the SS Tipton.

Stars: Dylan Sprouse, Cole Sprouse, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan

Votes: 14,033

I'm not proud of this one. I don't even understand how I managed to watch every episode of this show, but I did. I blame it on childhood nostalgia.

34. What I Like About You (2002–2006)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy

When Holly's father is transferred to Japan, she is sent to live with her big sister Valerie in New York City, turning Valerie's life upside down.

Stars: Amanda Bynes, Jennie Garth, Wesley Jonathan, Leslie Grossman

Votes: 11,988

Those who don't remember what a big deal Amanda Bynes was probably won't understand my love for this show.

35. Long Way Round (2004– )

TV-PG | 315 min | Documentary, Adventure

This documentary series follows actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman on a motorcycle trip around the world. The two friends will travel through such places as Siberia, Kazakhstan, ... See full summary »

Stars: Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, David Alexanian, Russ Malkin

Votes: 11,064

For a documentary mini-series, this was so much more fascinating then I though it would be. Anyone who has ever enjoyed adventure should watch this and marvel at the guts it takes to go on this sort of journey. The follow up Long Way Down is still on my to-watch list.

36. Eddie Izzard: Marathon Man (2010– )


Actor and comedian Eddie Izzard signs up to attempt to finish 27 marathons across South Africa in 27 days in this two-part doco. Each race in commemoration of the 27 years that Nelson Mandela spent in prison.

Stars: David Tennant, Eddie Izzard, Jo Denby, Ted Powles

Votes: 66

Eddie Izzard is one of the most amazing people on the planet.

37. Reba (2001–2007)

TV-PG | 30 min | Comedy, Drama

Reba McEntire stars as the titular characater in this smash sit-com about a single mom of three, navigating life in a Houston suburb.

Stars: Reba McEntire, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Steve Howey, Christopher Rich

Votes: 12,503

38. Backstrom (2015)

TV-14 | 44 min | Comedy, Crime, Drama

The Portland Police Bureau's Elite Special Crimes Unit is led by Det. Lt. Everett Backstrom, an alcoholic and smoker who is in failing health, but takes on cases in special circumstances.

Stars: Rainn Wilson, Genevieve Angelson, Kristoffer Polaha, Page Kennedy

Votes: 8,858

39. Forever (2014–2015)

TV-PG | 43 min | Crime, Drama, Fantasy

A 200-year-old man works in the New York City Morgue trying to find a key to unlock the curse of his immortality.

Stars: Ioan Gruffudd, Alana De La Garza, Joel David Moore, Donnie Keshawarz
