This summer, JC and I plowed through Lost. We’d never seen it, so we started in July and finished a couple months later. Now, I’m watching Battlestar Galactica, and I’m in the middle of season two. Sure, the shows might be over, but I’m finally picking up on why people loved them so much.
What cult favorite show have you never seen? And do you want to watch it?
The shows don’t have to be over, though. For example, Mad Men. I’ve never seen it. I figured I should start from the beginning if I watched it. Why didn’t I check it out when it first aired? Well, I don’t know. I don’t think I’d really heard anything about it until it was already mid-season, but I’m a TV blogger. That probably is no excuse.
I’ve also never seen The Walking Dead, mainly because I’m not a zombie fan, and I fear it will give me nightmares (seriously). I’m not opposed to it, and I know it’s a quality program, but it’s just not up my alley. True Blood, also never saw that.
What else? Well, the other shows that come to mind are ones that have come and gone. Like The Sopranos. Never saw that either. I really hadn’t seen Wonderfalls until about a month or two ago, but fortunately, that’s changed. I plan to continue through that series.
But what about you? What cult–or fan–favorites have you never seen? What’s stopped you? And do you want to check them out?
