Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

Arrow, The Flash, Marvel's Agents of Shield.


Basically with all 3 i needed to cut some TV shows as I didn't have time and they weren't interesting me anymore.


Once upon a time- I watched 5 seasons and it was beginning to drag. Started season 6 and just couldn't take anymore.


Homeland- Once Brodie died I didn't see any point to the show.

GOOD LUCK IN 2019 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Laura Robson, Katie Swan, Katy Dunne, Jodie-Anna Burrage

Tara Moore, Emma Raducanu, Maia Lumsden

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt - found season 2 barely funny and dropped it after 10 minutes of season 3, the acting became horrendous

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

Too many to list. For example all Shonda Rhimes shows. I aways lose interest in Second or Third Season (Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, HTGAWM, and even with The Catch I lost interest midway first Season, etc And Private Practice. I think I watched First Season and that's it.)

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

Actually most of shows struggle to keep quality and simply can't stop. Like I used to love Bones but with about 7 Seasons I had enough. And it's still airing I think.

Now some shows not only keep the level but actually improve over the Seasons but they are minority, these are some off the top of my head:

Mad Men
Breaking Bad
The Leftovers
Buffy the Vampire Slayer

All have in common that its first Season is the least interesting by far at least in my opinion and peak in the last Seasons (not in Buffy's case, it peaks earlier but have a satisfying final Season imo).

"The Walking Dead"

At the beginning it was good, interesting and exciting

But with each cycle it became more and more violent, brutal and disgusting

Wayward Pines (Didn't like the first season, and people said it got worse)
Mad Men (Never grabbed me - although I feel like I should give it another go)

I was a Simpsons obsessive during the classic seasons - approx. 3 - 8, but pretty much downhill from there. I've looked in on it once in a blue moon since and clearly it's never completely lost its mojo, but it's just not the same thing. The classic years were some of the best comedy writing ever. Though also I think I may have pretty much lost any taste for animated shows.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

Speaking of "brutal and disgusting", I'll have to see with GoT. I suppose I'll give it a chance and if it's brilliant this season I'll watch it. Otherwise, it's largely the "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing" principle and I couldn't care less right now who ascends the Iron Throne.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

^The quality of writing in GOT has steeply declined since season 5. The show felt like a parody of itself at some points last season.

Stopped Orphan Black after season 2. First season was great but it had the same problem Lost had, where you could tell the producers/writers were coming up with the plot on the fly and things started to get convoluted. The lead actress is so talented though, her acting is easily the best part of the show.

Also House of Cards, the last two seasons were a little lackluster and haven't heard good things about the recent one so I'm dropping it. The real life American political system feels like a reality tv show anyway, no need for the fictional version anymore.

I feel so irrationally outraged at the new episodes that I'm fairly certain I'm being unfair, but to me the show has completely lost its mojo

Even though the first two seasons aren't very funny, they're quite innocent and nostalgic (and often very sweet :aww.

Could be, I haven't tuned in really recently. Just seen their Trump bits online.
