Ready to hear a secret? CW Seed is the best app TV fans aren’t taking advantage of. There’s an excellent chance that you know all about the CW app. It features the latest episodes of Supernatural, iZombie, and Riverdale. However, it doesn’t usually carry full seasons. CW Seed, on the other hand, is a one-stop destination for classic shows produced by the WB. Now, it’s by no means extensive. The list of available shows is small, but there’s plenty of good stuff in there, especially for genre fans. The best part is every show on the CW Seed is free. Sure, you may have to deal with a few commercials, but that’s a small price to pay when the trade-off is every episode of Pushing Daisies.
While there are plenty of critically-acclaimed series on the app, the following shows are the best CW Seed has to offer. If you’re ready to dive into all of this TV goodness all you need to do is head over to their website, or download the 100 percent free app.
Before This Is Us was making you sob on the regular, there was Everwood. The show is set in a remote mountain town that changes forever when a big city doctor moves his family there and begins giving away his services for free. This family drama examines father-son relationships, first loves, and the messy realities of grief with warmth and heart that’s unparalleled.
Bryan Fuller’s whimsical detective series was struck down by the writer’s strike. Thankfully, viewers have two seasons of Ned the Piemaker’s story to cherish. With one touch, Ned can bring dead things back to life — however, if he touches them a second time, they stay dead forever. When he resurrects his childhood sweetheart Chuck, his life changes in ways he never imagined.
Tortured demon hunter John Constantine somewhat reluctantly gets back into the whole fighting the forces of evil game. While it only lasted a single season, the character currently hangs out on Legends of Tomorrow, and CW Seed hosts an animated series based on his adventures as well.
Harper’s Island is perfect for a weekend marathon. The one season wonder is a thriller that finds a group of family and friends being slowly picked off by a murderer on an isolated island.
This gentle family comedy seems more relevant now than ever before. A mid-western family plays host to a Muslim foreign exchange student from Pakistan. Culture clashes arise, but ultimately this series is about how people are far more alike than they are different.
ABC canceled a gem when they axed this drama about a man who can’t die. Ioan Gruffudd’s Dr. Henry Morgan is a 200-year-old medical examiner who solves crimes (of course), but the heart of the series lies in the fragile bonds he forms with the mortals who he knows he’ll have to say goodbye to one day.
Sorry, new Dynasty, but nothing can compare to the soapy heights of the original ’80s series. Relive every slap, death takeout, and affair now — because the original Denver family still has the most game.
Loosely based on the childhood of Chris Rock, this coming of age comedy follows a young boy discovering his love of comedy in the ’80s. Funny and sometimes a little bit prickly, this comedy has been underrated for too long.
