Shows you heard about but never got the chance to watch.

By Mumbua Nzula Nzyoka.

  1. Newsroom (2012 – 2014)


Seasons 1-3

Stars: Jeff Daniels, Olivia Munn, Emily Mortimer

Network: HBO

The Dialogue on this show is amazing. I’d say Aaron Sorkin put his best foot forward when he was writing for this show.

  1. Brothers and Sisters (2006 – 2011)


Seasons 1-5

Stars: Dave Annable, Sally Field, Calista Flockhart

Network: ABC

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.

  1. The Almighty Johnsons (2011 – 2013)


Seasons 1-3

Stars: Dean O’Gorman, Tim Balme, Shane Cortese

Network: TV3

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.

  1. 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*.

  1. Fringe (2008 – 2013)


Season 1-5

Stars: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble

Network: Fox

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.
