DH and I used watch Red Green every night recorded off PBS. Even though it had been off for awhile, we were totally shocked and saddened when we viewed the final episode!

We also like to watch Red Dwarf when we have a chance.

Have you seen the movie? It was great.

Does our obscure show have to be on air now? If not, mine would be Cleopatra 2525

As a kid I remember liking Rocky Road about orphans livinig in an ice cream shop. I never have found it online or heard about it since.

I also remember liking Double Trouble about twin, dancing teenagers.

How's that for obscure?

oh heavens! Don't bring it up, it's still too painful to know it's gone.

I also love Firefly, but my all-time favorite is Veronica Mars. It's brilliant!

Yep, Firefly is one of my all time favorite shows. Dh gets on this rant about how they canceled it whenever someone mentions the show.

Freaks and Geeks - single-season hour-long ABC drama from the late 90s, very real and funny, reminds me a little of Donnie Darko

Sports Night - early Aaron Sorkin 1/2 hr dramedy

Keeping Up Appearances - 70s britcom about a stuffy, fluffy suburbanite

The Young Ones - 80s britcom about punks who live in a dump, occasional cameos by new wave bands such as madness

I looooooooooooved Sports Night. Loved. Did I mention the love?

I also remember adoring Oh, Madeline, back in the day. No idea what I'd think of it now, though. (crosses self, thinks of Madeline Kahn)

i could never figure out who i loved more, madeline kahn or bernadette peters. they both occupy a special fuzzy place in my soul.

yeah, sports night was great. too bad it didn't work out for studio 60.

Firefly
Arrested Development

They are 2 of the best shows that never made it.

The Oblongs. Very dark humor and a bit on commentary on today typical american lifestyle. It comes on latenight on adult swim (cartoon network) on the weekends. I found out recently that Will Ferrell did the voice of Bob.
Little synopsis http://www.angusoblong.net/theoblongs.html

Totally dig MXC. Hilarious!!!

Oh - another show we love is Robot Chicken. Totally twisted parodies.
This humor is not for everyone but DP and I have a strange sense of humor.
A few of the best miniclips

I loooove MXC. I saw a commercial on one of the networks for a fully Americanized version of the show that'll be debuting soon. Eh.

Flight of the Conchords is another favorite. All-time favorite obscure is a show called Oddball that used to be on MTV a loooong time ago.

Yep. We love us some FotC too, although I must say that the love is more habit now, since DP likes it so much and we've seen every episode enough times to have them memorized!

So does mine. Then he lists shows that went further with less class. Then he wishes he was rich so he could bankroll another season

My family is obsessed with the British show the Mighty Boosh, Family Plots (not sure if this is obscure in the USA, but here in Australia they play it once a week at midnight), and I also love the Catherine Tate Show (Am I bothered?)
