Lie to Me   2009-2011

Tim Roth was a body language expert that could always catch the liars.  It was interesting because each week they would show actual celebrities, politicians or someone currently in the news doing the exact same thing that he used to tell someone was lying. You never knew who they were going to show.  I’m guessing some people didn’t like their little cameos.  Great show.

Mrs. Mouse:  Veronica Mars and Freaks & Geeks are the two that I am still bummed I can’t watch more episodes of. I will binge watch all of Freaks & Geeks every now and again and I have watched Veronica Mars at least twice. 

For newer shows, I’m pretty ticked The Family was canceled, especially as it ended on such a cliffhanger. That’s why I don’t even bother with some shows until they are on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon, because then I know at least they won’t end in such a clusterfuck.

A lot have already been mentioned, but I’ll go with Forever. I really liked that show, and was so sad when it ended after just one season.

I find great shows on Netflicks sometimes and Im always dissapointed to find there were only a couple seasons. 

Most of these were already mentioned but:

American Dreams (My mom and I watched this when I was a kid, it was our ritual :(.   Great music and acting)

Heroes, the first one.  It had a decent number of seasons but most were interrupted with strikes and they kept chnaging the dates and it just got off track for me.  I tried to watch the new one and some of the storylines are good, others, not so much. 

Dark Angel

Pan Am

Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23

Veronica Mars
