Freaks and Geeks is one that comes to mind in this category.
I'll agree with the Seinfeld season and season 1 of homeland.
I would also add The Honeymooners (1956 season of the original 39 episodes).
Terriers for sure.
The Riches had 2 seasons, was also excellent.
H:LOTS is one of the best ensemble casts of any show ever done. I own the entire series and rewatch them from time to time.
I never saw that show (LOTS). I need to look for it on Netflix. I've recently watched NYPD Blue on the DirecTV channel from the beginning. It was excellent, in HD and stripped of commercials.
As far as I know H:LOTS isn't available to stream
Buffy S3 (with S5 and S2 a close second)
Firefly S1 (and only)
Breaking Bad S3
Veronica Mars S1
Parks & Rec S3
First season of 24 and Heroes
There are a few full episodes on YouTube. Here is one:
This thread makes me want to re-watch Homicide. Unfortunately I can't find it available anywhere any more (on-air or streaming).
I thought Journeyman was a good one and done series.
Every time we talk old series...one of my old favorites comes out...
Season 1, Boomtown.
I discount Heroes season 1 b/c the finale ruined it for me.
Hard to beat The Wire..........
so bummed they cancelled it
that was a great show
In no particular order:
All In the Family-S2
Firefly (The #1 single-season show ever [Burn in Hell, Fox!])
Twilight Zone (any season after the first)
It was more like a good half and done series. It was really well done and was canceled just as the story was about to hit its peak and reveal some mysteries. I really wish they would have been able to at least finish out the full first season. Damn writer's strike.
I recently got hold of a copy (VHS quality) of the Dead Dog Records original arc, with the notion that I was going to dub in the original music track over a DVD release of the arc. I realized it was going to be a chore, but I have great editing skills in my speckled past and I've done this kind of thing before.
But lo and behold there apparently IS no DVD release of the Dead Dog arc! Apparently as Stephen Canell (RIP) was replacing the entirety of the original series music track with elevator music for the first DVD set, he decided Dead Dog would just be too much work and would display his idiocy in graphic clarity, so he simply skipped the arc altogether!!! And the subsequent DVD releases, though claiming to be new, must simply be using his eviscerated DVD tracks as the base because Dead Dog is missing in them also.
The Wiseguy series does hold up well for what it was, a superb example of a very stylized TV presentational style that doesn't exist any more, for good or ill.
Game of Thrones Season 3.
The Walking Dead Season 2.
Heroes Season 1.
Hershel's Farm season?
Dexter - the season John Lithgow guest starred.
