Yikes. People die on Arrow with great regularity. But I find it "interesting" that to you people dying is what makes a show "not crazy."

What shows are you still watching?

I mean, they just die and come back. That's not exactly dying in my books

I have a high tolerance for trashy shows (Scandal, Murder, UnReal) but I just found Arrow too emotionally manipulative.

My current roster including those above: Walking Dead (close to quitting), Supergirl, FotB, SVU, Superstore, Greys, Gotham, Blacklist, Modern Fam, Nashville, Crazy Ex GF, 911, Riverdale, This Is Us, Jane the Virgin

On netflix etc.: OitnB, Jess Jones, Dear White ppl.. there's a few more but those are what comes to mind atm.

I didn't mean the two (I think) people that have come back. One of whom hasn't been on the show since. I agree that Arrow is very emotionally manipulative. But part of the that is the killing off (permanently) of people. But they also find other ways. What they're doing currently with the team split is messed up.

From your roster I watch Supergirl, FotB (though I'm way behind) and Gotham.

From what I last watched/remembered, Laurel is reincarnated as something, Slade is back, Thea came back from the dead, as did Ollie, and Laurel's sister. Thea's dad in more ways than one is also on that same boat. It's just .. can't they just stay dead forever?

I also couldn't keep up with the timeline back and forth. Just too busy for me.

I think This Is Us is superb tho, there is abit of emotional manipulation but I feel like it's justified.. for now.

Warning in place let's continue:
Oliver never died. Neither did Slade or Malcolm Merlin. Laurel isn't reincarnated. She's from a parallel universe. And the emotional part is based on that. She looks the same but isn't.

So the only two people who have come back are Thea and Sara Lance who isn't in the show anymore anyway.

I started watching "Please Like Me" long ago but quit after a few eps. Didn't grab my interest.

OK let's just say Ollie was "close to dying" - I think it would have been a game changer if he actually died. But nope, they had to bring him back.
The other people were "never officially dead", but the producers made us think they were. Of course, that's the illusion of it but it's just those kind of manipulations that signalled the end for me.

As for Laurel, I know she's a different Laurel but it doesn't change the fact that I have to see her face again after she was supposedly dead.

It's just a washing machine cycle and I guess I got bored of it.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

Weeds.
The show was already starting to go off the rails long before its 6th season. Getting rid of the hilariously bitchy Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins) after the 5th season - and not resolving her story at all - was a horrible decision. But the way the 6th season ended was a fitting end to the series. Unfortunately they had to keep going, resulting in an absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary 7th season (I only made it a couple of episodes in). I don't even want to think about how bad the 8th season must have been.

It's a completely different person! There is no supposedly dead. The situation isn't any different than if one of two identical twins who had been separated at birth died. Or, within TV series, when one of the clones on Orphan Black is killed.

Didn't you watch the crossover arc? I'd think that since you still watch Supergirl you'd have seen that.

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

I gave up on Arrow and The flash. Just didn't have the time for them anymore.


Criminal Minds. Got too samey.


I'm on the brink with The Walking Dead- The newest episode was just dull, dull, dull. A whole episode devoted to one of the least liked characters on the show.

GOOD LUCK IN 2019 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Johanna Konta, Katie Boulter, Heather Watson, Harriet Dart, Gabby Taylor


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

Tara Moore, Emma Raducanu, Maia Lumsden

Re: What tv shows did you stop watching?

I gave up on Suits and Vikings in the past year, in terms of shows I'd gotten past 1 season of.
