I have always thought Person of Interest was pretty underrated compared to The Blacklist. Pretty similar concepts, but the former was IMO a much smarter and more engaging show despite pulling much lower numbers.

I loved the first season of POI then for some reason just never got back around to watching it again.
I will have to put it on my catch up to watch list.

Definitely do it. I liked the show in the first season, but it got much better in the second and third seasons. Moved away from the case-of-the-week format and into more involved ongoing arcs.

Also one of those shows that finished at pretty much exactly the right time. Went out on top, but got a half season after cancellation to wrap up all the loose ends.

Good call; created by Jonathon Nolan and you can see it as a forerunner to Westworld.

Agents of Shield. Got off to a ropey start and a lot of fans bailed but it really built up to an excellent show, particularly between seasons 2 and 5. If you like Marvel films, there's no reason you wouldn't like it.

MCU movies have charm despite rarely straying from 3-star territory because its 2.5-3 hours of your life then you move on. Suspect watching 136 45-minute episodes of the same thing with a worse budget would get old fast.

A show called Lano and Woodley that was out around early 2000's.
Most underrated show I know.

The Adventures of Lano and Woodley? That was originally aired on the ABC in the late 90s, definitely an underrated show that deserved more credit.

Yep that's the one. Awesome show that should still be talked about today.

It kind of reminded me of lots of shows from the past. Neither it or Blacklist grabbed me enough to watch more than a few episodes.

PoI started off as a fairly uninteresting case-of-the-week action procedural for the first season or so. It became more interesting later on, and by the end of its run I would say it is one of the better sci fi shows I’ve seen.
