* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', the SpiritualSuccessor to ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'', tells the story of a toy shop where the toys and the shopkeeper's pet come to life. Most people who've seen the show criticize it for ruining ''Series/NoddysToylandAdventures'' and claim that the additional characters weren't needed, but most of them are interesting, and they include a retired sailor, a hilarious old woman who runs the shop next door, a superhero dog, tiny people who live inside the store and spoofs of Carmen Miranda and Johnny Carson.

* ''Series/TheElectricCompany2009''- while some might be quick to dismiss it because of the only tenuous connection to [[Series/TheElectricCompany1971 its parent show,]] it holds up as a great show in its own right. The cast is full of actors who are not only wonderful on their own, but have a lot of chemistry with each other. The simple stories and lessons are definitely highly enhanced by these actors. Often the humor is great too. And all this despite being aimed at young children. It definitely deserves a larger PeripheryFandom.

* ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury.'' Despite being seen as a breath of fresh air compared to the more loathed ''PowerRangersOperationOverdrive,'' it often gets overshadowed by it's EvenBetterSequel, ''RPM'' (read above). Casey is a great deconstruction of the RookieRedRanger trope, the characters are likable (especially RJ), the villains are decent, and it had the first [[EarWorm catchy theme song]] since ''Series/PowerRangersSPD.''

* In 2006, ''Series/TheClass'' began its one season run. It was hilarious and had a great cast including [[{{Series/BetterOffTed}} Andrea Anders]], [[Series/ModernFamily Jesse Tyler Ferguson]], SamHarris (playing the perfect CampStraight), and a witty and underappreciated actress named LizzyCaplan. It was criticized for having no minorities in the main cast, which may have contributed to its death. But it was simply the [[{{Series/Firefly}} second best one season show ever.]]

* ''Series/StargateUniverse''. Admittedly a bit of a Battlestar ripoff (not so much in story as in tone, theme, setting,and aesthetic), but seriously one of the best quality scifi shows out there. And hay, who couldn't use some more Galactica?

* ''Series/LabRats'' is often dismissed as "just another Disney Channel sitcom", especially since it was on their fringe sister network Disney XD. It tends to get overshadowed by their animated shows like ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' and ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. What makes it stand out is its intriguing concept (three bionic teenagers are raised as normal humans by their stepbrother). The characters are exciting and the stories are funny, but it shines when it gets serious. ''Lab Rats'' is arguably Disney Channel's darkest live-action sitcom, literally exploring the themes of bionic warfare, terrorist threats, and child soldiers. It kicked of a wave of superhero sitcoms on both Disney (''Series/MightyMed'') and Nickelodeon (''Series/HenryDanger'' and ''Series/TheThundermans''), all of which tend to be goofier in nature than ''Lab Rats'', especially the Nick shows. Marvel fans will enjoy something that comes straight out of their playbook, and ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fans will want to look into it as Naruto's English voice actress plays a major character on the show.

* Not so much for a show as for a character, the DVDCommentary for the S1 finale of ''Series/RobinHood'' has most of the cast talking about how sorry they feel for Guy of Gisborne. After a few minutes of this, Jonas Armstrong speaks up in defence of Robin: "Why does everyone feel sorry for Gisborne? He's a murderer! What about poor Robin?!"

* ''Series/TheDresdenFiles'' is by no means the equal of JimButcher's [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles books]], but it ''was'' a good deal of fun, and at some points used your knowledge the books to throw you a deliberate curveball. (For example, we learn Harry's history in the first episode, including the death of Harry's mentor Justin... and then we see Justin watching from the shadows near the end. OhCrap.)

* ''Series/BombGirls'' was tragically cancelled after two seasons, but it was an amazing, well-written, well-acted, BechdelTest-passing show about the lives of a group of Canadian women during World War 2 working in a bomb factory.

* ''Series/{{Justice}}'' only has a stub page on TvTropes and it was [[ShortRunners canceled after one season]], but it is one of the most involving court dramas in a ''long'' time. The defense firm the series had as protagonists was filled to the brim with [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bastards]] that would make [[Theatre/{{Chicago}} Billy Flynn]] proud, everyone always had an agenda (except, perhaps, the accused), and it was never sure [[TheReveal until the very last scene]] whether the accused had actually commited the crime in question.
