Shows you heard about but never got the chance to watch.
By Mumbua Nzula Nzyoka.
- Newsroom (2012 – 2014)
Stars: Jeff Daniels, Olivia Munn, Emily Mortimer
The Dialogue on this show is amazing. I’d say Aaron Sorkin put his best foot forward when he was writing for this show.
- Brothers and Sisters (2006 – 2011)
Stars: Dave Annable, Sally Field, Calista Flockhart
The show had problems towards the end but which show hasn’t had a few misses especially after a five-year run. Despite these minor problems, “Brothers and Sisters” was so good that it became my standard for how all family dramas should be written. Even at the end, I wasn’t ready to let go.
- The Almighty Johnsons (2011 – 2013)
Stars: Dean O’Gorman, Tim Balme, Shane Cortese
You have probably never heard of this show, but then again that’s why it’s on this list. It’s a fantastic New Zealand show that was cancelled way before its time.
- Gracepoint (US)/ Broadchurch (UK)
Season 1/ Season 2
Stars: David Tenant, Anne Gunn/David Tenant, Olivia Colman
Network: Fox/ BBC America
Don’t be fooled by the different names; they’re the same show but in this case, you have the privilege of choosing which version you want to watch. Fair warning: David Tenant is in both shows, and he acts as the same character. The only difference is that in one of the shows he speaks with an American accent. *Smiles*.
- Fringe (2008 – 2013)
Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble
Fringe was popular. Well, sort of. Let’s just call it a cult classic that had a generous following. However, no matter how big of a following a show has, there are always those who have never watched it.
