I stopped watching True Blood after S5. The quality dropped faster than Lindsay Lohan finished snorting a line of coke.

60 min must've been with some other series then, but Supernatural started to be crap at around 5th or 6th season.

Wayward Pines. One season was perfect. Heard bad things about S2 and believed them, given how were they going to maintain interest once the secret was out.

I've stuck with the Affair. I think just because I still like the characters and the writing.

I rarely ever think that but in this case I agree. I think it was mostly because it was initially meant to be a mini-series. S2 was not originally in the works and was an almost completely different show.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

The current season of Veep and Silicon Valley are so bad I am thinking of skipping next year.

HBO really need to up their game. Netflix are miles ahead.

The Walking Dead - stopped during the last season

Fear The Walking Dead - end of season 1. I have started back w/season 3 for some reason, it has been rewarding so far...

The Leftovers - stopped half way through 1st season

Wayward Pines - barely finished the 1st season

Maybe "perfect" isn't the right word. I meant it more in the sense of "enough". I liked it a lot, but didn't feel that compulsive, "addicted" need to see more of it. It was like an extended Twilight Zone episode and I loved that about it, but anything that hinges so much on a particular contrivance is just hard to extend/repeat.

Totally forgot this show. Yeah I only watched season 1 just because I've read the book and wanted to see how it differs. Was going to watch season 2 but never did.

Wish I'd stopped watching Westworld, really wasn't worth it in the end.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

The Blacklist - I stopped watching halfway in S2. It's too repetitive for my liking. Same with Bones. I think I stopped watching after S9 or 10.

I was struggling to get through Orange is the New Black first season and decided it's not for me. They tried too hard to make it funny Weeds was 10 times better than this shit show

Completely agree. Was enjoying Spader's character for a while but it just got to be the same type of contrived situation over and over. Too many of these network shows are like that.
