There is a thread for shows that people expected to like and didn't. This thread is for shows that you expected to dislike but were willing to try out and liked. Smash is one for me. I watched the pilot and thought this looks OK. I collected all of the season but a few shows that had not been aired yet. I am throughly enjoying it. I know nothing about Broadway and the names they drop. Ironically, they dropped the name Neaderlander and then an ad came up for a musical that will be playing in Los Angeles, a Neaderlander production. So they are dropping real names. Missing is another one. The premise sounds lame but I stuck with it after the pilot and enjoy it. I am hoping it comes to a conclusion since it has been canceled. Glee - my sister was watching an episode. I ended up catching up using Netflix and then a basic cable channel repeated the entire run. I don't enjoy it as much as at first but still do. Once Upon a Time has grown on me and so has Grimm.
