6. Smallville

Smallville was such a compelling show during its first four seasons when Clark Kent was a teenager and just starting his journey to becoming Superman. Sometime around season five, when Clark passed his formative years, the show began to lose its luster. Even if the show should have ended after Clark finished high school, it’s still a must see – at least the first four seasons are.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. was one of the most popular new dramas when it first aired in the 2003-2004 television season. Although the show centered Ryan Atwood being taken in by the Cohen family, it became more about Ryan’s relationship with his foster brother Seth and his romance with the girl next door, Marissa, as well as Seth’s relationship with his childhood crush Summer. The first couple of seasons were excellent; however, after season three the show went downhill, but redeemed itself with season four, after which it was cancelled. The first couple of seasons are definitely worth watching and so is the fourth. We’d just recommend skipping out on season three. It’s a bit of a downer.
