Bleh. Read my review. Part of me hates this show because legend has it that it was chosen to move to The CW over my beloved Everwood because of the ratings it got for the final episode. It was pretty crappy at that point, while Everwood was always awesome. No forgiveness.
The second WB show that featured the unpleasant acting of Oliver Hudson. There was a lot of bad in this show, which featured a slumming Mitch Pileggi and Barbara Hershey. But I really like Penn Badgely and he was good in this show. (Much better than in Gossip Girl.)
Confession: All I know about Batman (and related characters) I learned on the '60s TV show*. So the mythology of Batgirl and all Nightwing was kind of wasted on me. Still, I don't think this show was so badly done.
(*I was really surprised to find out that there was more than one Robin! Really?!?)
I don't watch American Idol (don't care for it) but strangely, I found the first season of this show really watchable. Nicole S. went on to find a little bit more fame afterwards; the other Eden's Crushers, not so much.
Headache-inducing, but not as deeply weird as Yu-Gi-Oh.
Once upon a time there was a fledgling network, or netlet, if you will. It ran urban sitcoms, family dramas, shows about vampires, and the girl who both loved and slew them, and dramas set around creeks. That network was The WB, and I miss it. Sure, we have The CW now, which is sort of like what The WB used to be, without all the success (relatively speaking, but seriously, The CW today would kill for the kinds of ratings that Dawson's Creek used to pull in.)
I work in television, and in 1995 the station I work for went from being an independent station to a WB affiliate and a love affair was born. I worked during prime time and watched a lot of these shows while I was on the clock. But even though I didn't really have a choice whether to watch The WB, I found that it was no hardship. Usually - there are a few turkeys in the history of The WB. But I grew to love shows like Buffy, Felicity, Angel, even Savannah, which was a lot better than you'd think.
Here is a list, by no means exhaustive, of the shows I remember and watched. Some of them are very good, some of them had long lives, and some of them are misty memories of blink-and-you'll-miss-them duds. But I liked them. They aren't sorted chronologically, by the way.
