    15 TV Shows You Probably Missed That Deserve Your Attention

    Word of mouth is keeping these shows in the conversation.

    There are television shows that everyone seems to be watching.

    Your Mare of Easttowns or your Breaking Bads.

    But there are shows that don't get that kind of attention, whether it be because it's on a smaller network or they couldn't find viewers.

    Thanks to streaming and good old-fashioned word of mouth, more people find them.

    Consider this word of mouth, here are some great shows you might have missed the first time around that are well worth your watch.

    1. Banshee (2013–2016)

    This starred Antony Starr pre-Homelander. It's about an ex-con who steals the local sheriff's identity and the twists and turns that come with it.

    2. Bunheads (2012–2013)

    Sutton Foster with Amy Sherman-Palladino dialogue? That's a perfect marriage of performer and writer there.

    3. Halt and Catch Fire (2014–2017)

    AMC / Via media.giphy.com

    This show is constantly written about as "the best show no one's watched." Let's keep that statement from being true.

    4. Happy Endings (2011–2013)

    ABC / Via media.giphy.com

    One of the best comedies of the 2010s and it did not get the love it deserved, especially when ABC ran episodes out of order.

    5. Party Down (2009–2010)

    Starz / Via media.giphy.com

    The classic example of a fantastic small show you missed, and there's a reason for that.

    6. Pitch (2016)

    FOX / Via media.giphy.com

    This is about the first woman to play in the four major North American sports leagues. A start-making performance by Kylie Bunbury and one of Mark-Paul Gosselaar's greatest.

    7. Selfie (2014)

    ABC / Via media.giphy.com

    John Cho as a romantic lead! Honestly, this show needed a better title and a lot of its initial marketing and audience problems would have been solved.

    8. Single Parents (2018–2020)

    ABC / Via media.giphy.com

    Just great comedy, and all of the kids were great.

    9. The Society (2019)

    Netflix / Via media.giphy.com

    Why was this canceled, Netflix? You had already renewed it for a second season and I need questions answered!

    10. Stumptown ( 2019–2020)

    ABC / Via media.giphy.com

    Hey ABC, see above.

    11. Sweet/Vicious (2016–2017)

    MTV / Via telltaletv.com

    A great vigilante show that dealt with sexual assaults on college campus two years before the #MeToo movement came to national prominence.

    12. Timeless (2016–2018)

    NBC / Via media.giphy.com

    There was a reason #SaveTimeless trended a lot. It was a great show and you should watch it.

    13. Vida (2018–2020)

    Starz / Via media.giphy.com

    It's about sisters who learn a very big secret about their mother after her death when they move back into their childhood home. I love family secret drama!

    14. Wynonna Earp (2016–2021)

    SYFY / Via media.giphy.com

    Wyatt Earp's victims come back from the dead and it's up to his great-great-granddaughter to save the day. Love me a good sci-fi western!

    15. You're the Worst (2014–2019)

    FX / FXX / Via media.giphy.com

    In the age of the anti-rom-com, this is the best, in all three departments and with a little drama, too. Four quadrant excellence!

    What are the shows that you love that more people should watch?
