There is nothing quite like a story with heroes flying
across the sky, vanquishing some evil that threatens the world. Whether it’s
superheroes in colorful suits foiling criminal geniuses, or mythical warriors bravely
slaying endless hordes of magical foes, shows built around science fiction and
fantasy have always occupied a special place in the hearts of viewers.
Something which is backed up by the ridiculous commercial success enjoyed by
both the genres.
However something we do often miss is how big these genres
actually are in terms of the amount of content made. Everyone knows about Game
of Thrones or Westworld, but there are countless other shows that have produced
excellent stories and characters but sadly never quite got the recognition or
viewing numbers they deserved.
The factors that held
these shows back can be various; from being shifted to unfavourable channels or
slots to networks simply not wanting to invest in them any further. But it
still does not take away the fact while they lasted, they created – no pun
intended – magic on our screens. With all that being said, let’s take a closer
look at these deserving shows who unfortunately never got their due. These, are
the 10 most underrated sci-fi/fantasy TV shows.
