I don't know how it turned out, but I tried watching Weeds twice and got through the same amount of episodes each time (about six). It sounded a lot better than it was.


I don't think Weeds would qualify as an overrated/underrated show. It's just there.

Just got some friends who really like it. Never really knew what the mass public thought.

Ok, I don't think this show can be called overrated at all, but I feel compelled to rag on it regardless, "Girlfriends." I know it is no longer on the air, but this was atrocious. I know it was a show aimed at a specific demographic though. The demographic being, "idiots." This show was honestly the biggest pile of crap I ever saw; and my Huskie dog took a sh*t on my foot when I was 3.

I like the Walking Dead, American Dad, and currently watching Sons of Anarchy on netflix(season 4). Pick any soap opera and that's my pick for most overrated.

I work with guys like that in the USA and there is nothing funny about their stupidity.

May be the worst show I have ever seen

I know what it means. The Bold and the Beautiful gets 25+ million per day worldwide to tune in. I actually had to endure a few episodes of that cheesefactory they call a tv show. I'll never understand why it has a audience but it does, thats why me thinks its overrated.

Lol, i couldnt help but notice no one has mentioned any of the original CBC series.

Either everyone loves those shows, Being Erica, Mr.D, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Heartland, etc.. or no one watches those fine programs. I'm thinking the latter.

I remember watching Lost. I didn't see it while it was going, but I got the seasons from the Library. The first season was great, and the second was pretty decent, but it seemed to kinda go downhill from there.

I agree with those who don't like Big Bang Theory. It just isn't funny (and I am a fan of physics and physicists like Michio Kaku, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Stephen Hawking).

The one show that I cannot stand at all, is Spartacus. IMO, it is everything that was bad about the movie 300, thrown into a series directed by someone with less artistic integrity than Michael Bay. They even managed to make the violent scenes boring and the sex scenes, well, unsexy. The actors and director are equally responsible for this giant turd of a series.

Season 1 of Homeland was almost flawless IMO. Season 2 was still good but it was nowhere near the quality of the first season.

Even though I may not relate to things and jokes in Big Bang Theory, I still get a good amount of laughter in each episode since I first started watching it when it came out. If a TV show can get me to laugh with or without laugh tracks, it's a good show for me.

Everyone loves those shows. That is everyone who works for the CBC. The only Canadian show that I thought was really good other than CBC kids programs, was Due South on CTV.

No love for Corner Gas? I liked that show. Then some of the stars of CG went on to new shows that were absolute crap and mercifully cancelled pretty much instantly.

Big Bang Theory certainly doesn't deserve the accolades that it gets... in fact, none of the shows that Chuck Lorre is currently working on have any redeeming qualities.... anymore.

All three, BBT, Mike and Molly and 2 and a half men, were all excellent at their starts... but not anymore... the guy just needs to stop now.

Two and a Half Men is one of the worst shows on TV now, literally they have done the same episodes 3 or 4 times over, and they aren't anymore funny.

Hells Kitchen is terrible now, they need a complete re-work of the premise of the show as it's getting SO boring. Same goes for Kitchen Nightmares, very much staged.

Storage Wars - SO STAGED, This locker only has paperwork and kids clothes... darn... oh wait.... here's Action Comics #1! OMG!

New Hawaii Five-O - Seriously terrible show.

CSI of any kind... worst shows ever.






A couple of shows that are under-rated....

Parks and Recreation, one of the best comedies on tv - PERIOD.
Deadliest Catch - Same show every year, never gets boring.
Survivor - People say it's "dead" but honestly, This is the best season I've watched since 2001. Best gameshow on TV.

Some old classics that will never get old......
Star Trek The Next Generation - This show gives and keeps on giving... literally don't think I could live without it.
Seinfeld
X-Files
