Throwback Thursday: 21 Captivating Cult Classics

at .

It's Throwback Thursday! This week, it's all about the cult TV shows we're still pretty darn obsessed with.

These are the shows that may have lasted only one season, but their dedicated fans made them become cultural phenomena. Or maybe they are the shows that made it several seasons, but still live on through comics, fan-fiction, memorabilia, and action figures. Some are even taught in the university classroom.

The bottom line?

The fans of these shows are passionate, and with good reason! All of them not only make for great television, but they've also inspired other popular current series. Chances are, some of your favorite shows right now wouldn't exist if it weren't for the ones on our list.

From quirky comedies to vampire slayers, these cult TV shows are ones we miss -- big time. The good news? Some have gotten closure through movies (one of them was actually funded by the fans), and others have reboots in the works right now. We can't wait for the return of The X-Files!

As for the others, it's worth it to binge-watch each of these shows more than once.

Which of these cult TV shows is your favorite, and which ones did we miss? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
