My mom and I watched John Doe and we both enjoyed it. To this day though one of our shared favorites is Special Unit 2. It's one not a lot of people have heard of but we loved it. They showed it for a while a couple years back on Syfy and we were ecstatic. For those who aren't familiar with it, SU2 followed a special branch of the Chicago PD who deal with monster and legendary creatures.Baisically they were a whole team of Grimms who worked for the cops. It drives me crazy that the show was never released on DVD because if it was I would buy it in a heartbeat. Another one we watched and really enjoyed was New Amsterdam, which was about an immortal cop living in NYC. It starred a pre-GOT Nikolaj Coster-Waldu and a pre-Lost Zuleikha Robinson. The whole series is available on Hulu. One of my personal favorites (it's not a mom kind of show) is Ugly Americans. It follows a guy who works in the Department of Integration in a alternate universe version of New York which is inhabited by all sorts of crazy creatures along with humans. A Clip. There is some crude humor here in case anyone is easily offended. I watched the first episode of Heroic Age a few months back and really enjoyed it.
