Everyone has a favorite movie or band that no one else has ever heard about. For whatever reason, they remain undiscovered and underrated. Now is your chance to tell the world about this obscure treasure!

On Monday, September 22, post about your favorite unknown –

MOVIE – BAND/ARTIST – TV SHOW – BOOK

One of my favorites:
http://www.henson.com/fantasy_scifi.php?content=farscape
Astronaut John Crichton assumes he'll be home in time for dinner. But a freak accident during an experimental space mission catapults him across a thousand galaxies to an alien battlefield. Suddenly, he's trapped among alien creatures wielding deadly technology - a battle that 20th century sci-fi pop culture never prepared him for. Hunted by a merciless military race, Crichton begins his quest for home from a galaxy far, far away ... Thus began the epic adventure "Farscape" the groundbreaking award-winning sci-fi production that has become a fan favorite around the world. Named by TV Guide as one of television's best cult shows ever and known for the overwhelming fan-based campaign that led to the miniseries production, "Farscape" has continued to find new audiences as it airs in syndication and is available on DVD around the world.

What is your favorite underrated treasure?

    1. Oh yeah! My husband and I both thought it was weird/funny when they showed in in Stargate. It was almost confusing to have them both there.

  47. I dated a guy in high school who watched that so I got to see a few episodes. Also, Netflix has it and I started watching it, but couldn't multitask (aka write and watch) so I stopped and haven't gotten back into it. Loved it though, so I really need to watch more.
