A good memory jogger:
Top one season wonders from the 1990s
I don't remember any of these. I of course have heard of "My So-Called Life" but have never watched an episode and had no idea Claire Danes was in it.
"Nothing Sacred" sounds very interesting. There's a really good chance I would find this show watchable. I'm a sucker for stories about young, cool Catholic priests. I wonder if Hulu or Netflix has this series.
This list made me realize that one season wonders are probably the epitome of what I had in mind with this thread, though of course Airwolf (which sparked the original thought) ran for more than one season.
