TV programmes considered underratedby johnno74 | created - 30 May 2013 | updated - 12 Sep 2013 | Public
When I say underrated, I kind of refer to the opposite of overrated. The way I observed the term 'underrated', TV programmes that fit in this category are usually among the least talked about, less obsess-able, not usually included in unpersonal top 10/100 lists, i.e. 100 Best Cartoons/Britain's Best Sitcom/100 best anything, or were given mild reviews. They are also the ones that ain't been remade as movies. The following programmes are what I believe fit in the underrated category.
