Question What are your favorite shows that are completely forgotten?

These are shows that are either completely forgotten or that were never well known to begin with. They have to only lasted no more than three seasons, was never even nominated for an Emmy or a Golden Globe in a major category, and aren't always on the lists of fondly remembered, gone-too-soon shows.

Shows that never went to DVD are definitely getting forgotten about

DAG is my favorite one season comedy of all time that hardly anyone remembers. I even sent David Alan Grier a message a few months ago asking if it could be released on DVD, but he never responded. Grand Slam on GSN was a fantastic tournament of game show champions, their best ever original but sadly it hasn't reaired at all since its original year.

Two of a Kind

Not sure if these shows pass the final criterium in your list, but I'll list them anyway:
  • It's Your Move
  • Police Squad
  • Sledge Hammer
  • Selfie

Please Don't Eat the Daisies. It ran for only two seasons - the first in black & white and then in color. It hasn't been in syndication for years. If it had run for 5-6 seasons, it would be more remembered like Family Affair or The Brady Bunch.

My mom has always wanted one of those Old English Sheepdogs like Ladadog (who was also in The Shaggy Dog).

Brooklyn Bridge was great as well. It should be on DVD.

One of my favs. was "Brimstone" that aired 1998-99 on Fox (13 eps).

It starred Peter Horton as a deceased cop who the Devil (John Glover) sends back to Earth to capture 113 demons that escaped from Hell. If he succeeds he is promised to get a second chance at life. A tattoo on his body disappears with each demon he sends back.

Cast members have nothing to do with those decisions.

True, it found an audience when it was on Netflix.

Anybody remember Reasonable Doubts with Mark Harmon and Marilee Matlin? It ran for 2 seasons ('91-'93) on NBC. I'm still mad it got cancelled and I've always thought it was the best show Mark ever did.

The only thing I remember about Reasonable Doubts is that it was a poster on a Seinfeld episode
