5 Undeservedly Forgotten TV Shows to Revisit on Prime Video Right Now
While some great TV series are still talked about years after they ended, some shows weren't so lucky and are barely mentioned today.
Many of the most iconic TV shows live on in the memories of fans many years after they ended.
To this day, The Office, The X-Files, Lost, and many other great series from the past continue to pop up all over the Internet in various discussions, news, or videos dedicated to them.
However, some equally good TV shows seem to have disappeared from the public eye and are mentioned much less often than other iconic TV projects.
So, to right this wrong, let's take a look at five great TV shows that no longer seem to get the recognition they deserve.
This legendary TV series walked so the Game of Thrones could run, as it feels incredibly similar to the early seasons of the hit fantasy series, although, as the name suggests, Rome is inspired by historical events rather than fiction.
Set in the 1st century BC, it follows two Roman soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, portrayed by Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson respectively, as they find themselves caught up in the major historical events of the time.
Although it only lasted for two seasons, Rome is still an amazing show that holds up incredibly well almost two decades after it ended.
Everybody Hates Chris (2005-2009)
Vaguely based on the teenage years of real-life comedian Chris Rock, who serves as narrator throughout the series, this sitcom starred Tyler James Williams, Terry Crews, Tichina Arnold and many other great actors.
Despite being a pretty good and entertaining comedic sitcom, this show is not talked about as much as, say, The Office or Friends, which is actually quite disappointing, as Everybody Hates Chris deserves a lot more love.
The sitcom is available on Amazon Prime Video and Hulu.
Desperate Housewives (2004-2012)
This comedy-drama TV series was pretty big during its impressive eight-season run, but after it ended, the show seemingly disappeared from the public eye, with only the occasional headline mentioning its title when talking about its former cast members.
The series followed four women living their family lives in a fictional neighborhood of Wisteria Lane and the many misadventures they got into throughout the show's run.
But with a complex story, vivid and well-acted characters, and a fair share of both hilarious and rather shocking moments, this show deserves its place among the greatest TV classics.
Desperate Housewives is available on Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus.
What started out as a mediocre rip-off of The X-Files eventually turned into a fairly original and entertaining sci-fi series that gained a sizable fan base over the years.
The show revolved around a special FBI task force made up of a number of colorful characters as they encountered and investigated mysterious events and anomalies related in one way or another to fringe science.
The show's debut season turned out to be rather underwhelming, but as mentioned above, it eventually found its own identity and became quite good later on.
The sci-fi series is available on Amazon Prime Video and Max.
ER, which ended in 2009, was one of them, and was incredibly popular at the time, even getting better ratings than Seinfeld and Friends.
Now, however, few people remember the show, except for the fact that it was a major milestone in the career of George Clooney, who portrayed Dr. Doug Ross.
ER is available on Amazon Prime Video and Hulu.
