Once upon a time. It literally repeats the entire first season’s plot.


starmartyr

The first season was great. Everybody has their secret fairy tale motivations that they don't understand themselves. There is also a ton of mystery surrounding who the characters really are. Then they end the season by letting everyone know everything. Any plotlines that were somewhat grounded in reality got ignored for a bunch of fantasy nonsense that just gets stupider as it goes.


Radix2309

There was a really good plot early on in s2 with King George (Charming's dad) with him trying to take leadership. There is a good story where the characters have to reconcile who they were with who they are now. And also their existing relationships and grudges against each other. But they didn't. Instead just magic nonsense, revolving doors of heroes/villains, and drama dragged out over half a season. Characters appear and disappear at random with no consistent arcs.


starmartyr

Also the quick transition from characters inspired by fairy tales to characters ripped directly from Disney movies.


9thdoctor-

I legit laughed out loud when I heard they were introducing Elsa.


Antelope_Some

It was one of my favorite shows until the end of s3 And then it just went downhill If I were to watch it all over again for the first time I wouldn't watch past S3 finale


[deleted]

Rumpelstiltskin is a top-level character. Robert Carlyle is exceptional in that role.


Antelope_Some

Absolutely. Both the way he's written and acted are brilliant. He's one of my favorite characters ever


DownvoteMeandEffOff

I think I either stopped in the middle of season 3 or 4


Gr33nman460

Not to mention about twice a season it gets revealed once again that people are related to one another. By the end of that series the entire cast was one family tree


Starhunt3r

Thank you! First season was amazing, then it was downhill from there I made it to >!Hooks death and immediate reincarnation!< and just couldn’t anymore


sketchysketchist

This could’ve worked if each season focused on a new cast of fairy tale characters trapped in a similar situation and the main cast traveling to free them all by solving their melodramatic relationships.


serefina

We really should have more limited series. Some shows have premises that are good for a season or two that get ruined by dragging it out for multiple seasons.


Positive-Source8205

I love limited series. Get in, wrap it up, get out.


BrockStar92

Watch more British shows. Fewer episodes generally so they don’t as often run out of ideas or go off the rails. Fleabag for example, two perfect seasons and done.


cannedrex2406

I think British shows can sometimes go a bit far in terms of quantity over time. Like Sherlock took nearly 8 years and there's only like 13 episodes of it. Like the hype was painful


mankytoes

They still lost the plot at the end, that last episode was way below the quality standard set.


guaip

YES. I love limited series (although they can turn into a series if it makes enough money). At least the ones based on true stories are safe from that. I was watching the new TLOTR series thinking it would be a limited series since they have been shooting it since always and there would be no way they would do it again. Now apparently it can go as far as 5 seasons. So everything I thought would unfold by the end of the series probably won't :(


XxMysteriousManXx

The Flash.


no1ofconsequencedied

"I'm the fastest man alive. Except for the main villain of this season. And the random guy I'm chasing who escaped around the corner of the building, despite the fact I can search an entire square mile in under a minute. Nah, he's gone, no need to check."


__Kaari__

You mean a second ? I mean I never watched the show, but isn't the flash from DC like beating superman to a pulp in terms of speed ?


Sparticuse

It's never so much faster that pedants can't argue about it.


GenericHuman1203934

Barry: "I am the fastest man alive!" Speedy McFast, the main season villain: "not while I'm here! I'm gonna take over the world with my super speed!" Barry: "oh no guys I can't beat him what do I do‽" *Insert random filler* The guy Tom Cavanagh plays that season: "don't worry Barry just run faster" Iris: *makes some stupid metaphor involving lightning* Barry: "you're right guys I can totally do it now!" *More random filler* *Christmas episode* *Barry beats bad guy* Barry: "I couldn't have done it without you guys" Cisco: *makes some stupid nerdy reference* *Credits roll* *Cliffhanger post credits possibly involving Frost or Godspeed that is never mentioned again* ^^^minor ^^^edits ^^^for ^^^spelling


fatnino

You forgot to do a crossover event with some other shows your audience isn't watching and then put minor events like Barry getting married in one of those other shows.


R1_TC

I think that was the nail in the coffin for me, it happened in season 4 if I remember correctly? S3 to me had the perfect level of superhero goofiness and my sister and I were really looking forward to season 4, but them putting such a major event in a show I wasn't watching, followed by them killing off the original actor for the Thinker and turning him into a discount Ditto just killed my enthusiasm. I can't believe the show is still going lmao


Complaint-Efficient

Get a writing job, dude


WannabeaViking

"Im Barry Allen, the fastest man on Earth" HOW COME EVERY VILLAN YOU FIGHT IS FASTER THAN YOU BARRY?? DROP THE TITLE lol


captainhyrule1

Season 1 big bad - a time traveler faster than Barry Season 2 big bad - a guy faster then Barry Season 3 big bad - Future Barry who's faster than Barry It was after that that I was like hey guys can we have a villain who's like anything other than faster than Barry?


Amish_Warl0rd

Season 4 big bad - a smart guy that thinks faster than Barry As much as I enjoyed the first season, the CW just adds way too much unnecessary drama in their shows. “Oh no! What’s this person gonna think about this/me?” Turns out they don’t really care, or it it doesn’t make much of a difference anyways


king-geass

A smart guy that thinks faster than Barry who sets up to be a subtle and complex villain and then in the next episode flies around town shooting lasers out of his space wheelchair


FacelessFellow

You mean the time-god who needs tech support? That show is like Henry Danger for grownups.


risiso8363

Once Upon A Time. That was a show that was suited to be just one season. Then it kept getting renewed and the writers had to make up more and more ridiculous shit.


Myu_The_Weirdo

I stopped watching when they added frozen to the mix. Neverland was the last decent season


gjaebsys

the concept of OUaT should have been picked up by another network or something bc ABC royally screwed it up


Sanseriouz

Frankly I only watched for Regina’s costumes after a while.


Myu_The_Weirdo

Regina was my favorite character, she was morally grey at best and it was great


jodefo8605

Heroes. Watch the first season, and then stop.


Allredditorsarewomen

My sister has a terrible memory and every few years she tries to rewartch and can't remember why she stops in the second season.


jodefo8605

Didn't they give Peter every power ever and he could do literally anything he wants yet he doesn't? I recall once Sylar was choking him against a wall and Peter had the ability to stop time, fly, heal, etc, yet he just sat there and took it like a moron. That's when I couldn't take watching any more.


MrLuxarina

They really shot themselves in the foot by dropping the "new cast every season" idea. Everyone had their arcs in season 1, their powers developed to a logical conclusion, their stories were over, nothing more to do. But they were too popular, so we've got to bring everyone back, who cares that anything we throw at them has to be massively contrived to justify the plot? Now Peter has no memories, now Peter's possessing someone else's body with only one power, now Peter has no powers, now Peter can only have one power at a time. Hiro's in the past, Hiro's in Africa away from all the action, Hiro has cancer that blocks his powers. Sylar's in Central America and has no powers, Sylar's trying to be a good guy, Sylar thinks he's Nathan and can only fly.


__Kaari__

Wow, I'm glad I didn't go past S1.


Osric250

Season 2 was going fine, but then the writer strike of 2007 happened mid season. The show never recovered after.


DaMoonRulez_1

I liked heroes but it was so hard when you give someone the ability to control time. Opens you up to 1000 ways they could have easily defeated the enemy that didn't happen. That is why they started screwing with his ability imo.


Strange-Ad8829

House of cards. Just stop watching on the last episode of the penultimate season and pretend the last one is still in the works. The last season is insulting on so many levels.


Birdhawk

The last season….ugh.. my wife said let’s just stop. I said no, we will watch as they kill our baby in front of us. Such trash. Every other scene Claire turning to camera and basically saying “that’s right. I’m a woman. Deal with it.” Nothing made sense. In early seasons Claire seemed like such a smart and calculated badass. So this last season was her moment! And what did they do? Made her pretend to be crazy…but not for any motive or goal in particular! Which at that point if you’re pretending to be crazy for no reason other than pretending to be crazy then you’re just crazy! They failed in the big picture story arc of the season as much as they failed scene by scene. It was trash but damn it I watched till the very end. It never got better. Thought it would all lead to a payoff and it didn’t.


RIPN1995

That last scene with Doug and Claire was meant to be payoff for something, but it just fell so flat.


ab00

Heroes


gocougs191

Was just thinking about this show. I still recommend season 1 to anyone who hasn’t seen it.


tobor32779

Weeds. Good for the first three seasons or so. Really fucking comes off the rails after that.


Prestigious_Run1098

I agree. Great show in the beginning. When they moved out of the Agrestic/Majestic suburb, it lost all its original appeal. The season set in Ren Mar is okay (season 4 I think), but it was a crapfest after that. I was invested in the characters already, so i watched until the bitter end.


SpacemacsMasterRace

Season 1 is such a great classic show. I really loved the whole feel so much. So much nolstagia and vibes.


ICPosse8

It became less about selling weed and more about who Nancy was fucking that week. That was like one of the first shows where they would actually show a ton of weed and people smoking it lol


MambyPamby8

Yeah Weeds just went off the deep end. It had a completely different tone and story by the last few seasons, it doesn't even feel like the same show. I think for me personally I got really pissed off at how lucky Nancy constantly gets just because she's good looking. I understand pretty privilege is a thing but Jesus she'd have been dead by episode 3, if she didn't resolve to fuck her way out of every bad situation. It was fun at first but she literally fucks over the cartel and it's grand because she had his baby in her stomach! In reality she'd be in an unmarked grave somewhere in Mexico.


nanermaner

The walking dead, gave up a while ago. Don't even know if it has finished or not yet.


rd_rd_rd

The show is already died long time ago but it keep walking, respect to them for sticking to the title.


UncleCarnage

For me it died when they kicked out Carl for not wanting to get paid like a child actor and then Rick disappearing as well. The way Rick left was just so stupid as well, I kept thinking he will be back, but a whole season later it started to dawn on me “nope, dude is not coming back”.


acefrosting

Yes! Carl had gone from my least favorite to most favorite and I was so disappointed to see him go. Didn’t watch at all after that.


TheFBIClonesPeople

I think the situation with Rick was that Andrew Lincoln decided he was done with the show, so they had to write his character out. But they probably didn't want to permanently write him off (i.e. kill off his character), because they wanted to leave the door open for Lincoln to rejoin later on. I don't think they actually wanted to write Rick out of the show. They just didn't have a choice, because the actor was leaving.


UncleCarnage

He wasn’t done with it. It was the combination of them kicking out the Carl actor AND wanting to spend time with the family.


A_FamousNobody

Yup, it got a bit past the whole "normal people surviving in a brutal world" and just kinda got silly in a way, everyone was always serious and talked in *a very specific dry quiet way* and when they started the whole clan wars stuff I just dipped cause it felt like a more wack version of lord of the flies


sane-ish

The concept of the junkyard people was kinda neat. The lingo they developed was super goofy. Dude, it hasn't even been like 5 years and people were talking like they've been isolated for decades.


NeenIsabelle

In 2012 I met the actor who played Glenn (Steven Yuen) at a comicon. Everyone only wanted to see Norman Reedus. I was able to have an extended conversation with Mr. Yuen. I said that I hoped he lasted until the very last episode. He agreed with me and said that he would be super upset if they killed him off and he was always concerned about it. Basically because there weren’t a lot of good roles for Asians. The way they killed off Glenn made me so mad I stopped watching consistently. And I’m so happy he is doing great in his career!


throwawayscesaginaw

I was all on board until maybe when they introduced Negan. Then I stopped caring. The zombies stopped being scary. It became a human vs human drama that Injust didn't give a shit about.


guaip

Same here. They made it look like the season would be they suffering on his hand all the time and I didn't feel like watching it. Ut's hard to make something so hopless and boring at the same time, but they managed to do it.


j4ck_0f_bl4des

Grimm. Started off so good, just got worse and worse and worse


fairiestoldmeto

Yes. They started so strong with the scattering of fairytale evil characters then devolved into ‘everyone is an animal person’ which.. ugh


Chieftan69

The 100. That shit went way off the rails.


asudancer

I’m halfway through season 3 right now. I’m starting to see why I stopped at season 2 the last time I watched it. Once the whole Allie shit starts it goes downhill. We’ll see how long I last this time.


DrunkleSam47

Oh it gets waaaaayy worse.


iloveallthepuppies

It makes much more sense when you binge instead of watching week to week. The Ali season was weird BUT it somehow works in the scheme of things. It is a great show till about season 5. Six was interesting but a bit out there for me and I never saw 7 but heard the ending was a bit crazy


acid-nz

I love how it completely just turns into an unhinged fever dream.


Scary-Bit-4173

Promised Neverland, stop after season 1.


TheOneSaneArtist

That’s what I did. I thought the season one ending was perfect, so I just never bothered watching the second season. Heard secondhand that the rest was terrible. Dodged a bullet there!


AkumaLilly

After episode 3 of season 2, they cut about 100 chapters of the manga, erasing the best part of the manga WITH the best characters and THE BEST VILLIAN of the story. Also the ending is absolute Trash. While the manga ending wasn't exactly amazing (not bad just somewhat disappointing), compared to the anime ending is like looking at the Holy Grail.

Outrageous-Dream6105

The show should have ended when Topher Grace left.


ChameleonMami

It did. Unfortunately they kept airing it.


lesliesno

I agree the show should’ve ended when Topher left but I don’t think the last season is horrific that you can’t watch it. Like it could’ve been a lot worse. I think the worst part is how they ruined Hyde & Jackie.


quarterslicecomics

I’m just glad Eric and Kelso both made it for the finale.


darkspark1224

Suits. It becomes very repeatitive after a while


allegate

Yeah every season someone else learns the big secret and it gets dumber and dumber.


nicgom

Exactly, when mime was introduced he was supposed to be some sort of savant, someone that learns fast and hast a photographic memory, in the first season that quality was used and showed, later it more or less disappeared. I watched all seasons, there where some fun episodes, good dialogs but it was mostly noise while learning


Gibborim

And Louis could have been such a great character, but instead they just wrote him as actively insane.


Hazytea

It should have been called, "Ridiculously beautiful women in tight dresses deliver a biting comeback, then walk away while the camera focuses on their ass and I guess there's some lawyer stuff too."


teh_fizz

*wide shot of new york* *scene of actors trying to law some stuff. New character says that it’s bullshit and the other character knows it* *small argument ensues* *character goes on rant* *music volume slowly goes up *another wide shot of New York with tense music* *new scene*

You know McNeal? She wears miniskirts and is promiscuous.


RedTheDopeKing

I was into it for like two seasons and then I realized every episode is like, “winning is the most important. Winning, I like to win. Winning is all that matters. We need to win.” I’m like fuck ok bud I get it, no wonder this is the favourite show of NHL players. Also them acting like the main character is a degenerate fuck up addict for smoking pot sometimes lol.


thatshot2205

and then you have harvey drinking whiskey constantly and keeping it in his office which gets brushed over lol

Sburban_Player

When Arrow was first coming out all my friends were watching it all super excited for what comes next. Now I don’t know anyone who would touch a CW DC show with a 10 foot pole.


Whitehatdvl

I was excited when new shows came out, thought each show would have a different feel because it had different characters with different motivations. Boy was I wrong. All of the characters end up being almost exactly the same and they all ran together. They basically made them day time soap operas with superheroes.

GetGrogNasty

Billith.


Aki_999

Agreed. Also The Vampire Diaries - first 4 season were awesome, then the quality dropped with s5 and s6 onwards was unwatchable


Grawgar

I watched up until when Tara got turned into a vampire. That’s when it became unwatchable to me. I’ve never wondered how it ends.


amcwd

Agreed. However, I thought the intro to that show was so well made. It's one of the only intros that I will actually watch. Often times the intro was the best part of the episode! lol


Mental_Worker_1520

The last couple seasons of Castle were garbage. The finale was the worst finale in the history of finales. Yes even worst than GoT and HIMYM. Such a disgrace for a show that used to be cute, fun and sharply written. I can’t even bring myself to watch marathons when they are on and it was one of my favorite shows when it first started.


rohtbert55

Castle is so important to me. It was kind of "my show", you know? the first (more mature) show that I watched because I wanted and enjoyed and not because my family recommended it or told me to watch it. I stopped watching after Beckett left the Force and I can't bring myself to see it being ruined. Like, I have so many fond memories of the show that I just can't.


AtroposArt

If it helps, apparently Nathan Fillion & Kana Static absolutely hated each other. They had to go to counselling together to even try to work together - which didn’t work out.

Whichever season has trinity. Peak dexter


jessek

Yeah by far. John Lithgow was amazing as the Trinity Killer. Show should have ended there.


suggestmemedia

I loved season 5. The entire time i just wanted dexter to let loose and go ham on everybody, season 5 was kind of that. Lumen was great imo, she enabled dexter and i liked her as well.


conternet

Riverdale.


PrefabricatedSprouts

Riverdale is *the* show you must watch because of how ludicrous it is. The writers might as well have been on crack. I desperately want to know what makes the cast members keep coming back for more. Like, are they bribed with mass amounts of cocaine?


kroshava17

I don't think enough people realize that the writers of riverdale know EXACTLY what they are doing. You're not laughing at them, you're laughing with them. They intentionally made it to be super campy and to use every trope/plot line in writing history by the time the show is done. There aren't too many shows that aren't afraid to go as far off the rails as riverdale and honestly I kind of appreciate that.


KBAR1942

I guess so. My problem is that the seasons are way too long. If they were a bit more concise I would probably enjoy it more.


GingerFirDayz

If you watch interviews with the cast you can clearly see how much they dislike the show now. Cole Sprouse specifically will throw a ton of shade at the writing. I got past season 3 and then I could stand how bad it got. The cast tends to agree with you.


FWC_Disciple

The post says “aren’t worth finishing”, not “aren’t worth starting” lol


CordAlex1996

Archives 81. Was a damn good show. But like Netflix always does it canceled after 1 season which ends on a cliff hanger.


Brave_Fortune_8074

Wait really they cancelled the show?


respectthegoat

You could checkout the podcast it’s based on it has 3 seasons plus a mini 4th season


GRRUNGERRR

Wayward Pines. First series is brilliant, second series is awful


lightningbug24

Scrubs. Watch all the way through season 8, but 9 is trash.


[deleted]

Season 8 was the perfect ending. Why did they have to make the season that shall not be named?


boab_129

IIRC it was originally meant to be a spin-off titled Scrubs: Med School but the network ran it as Scrubs season 9


poneil

It was *titled* Scrubs: Med School. That's what the title card said when it initially aired. The network told Bill Lawrence that they'd greenlight a new show for him as long as it was called Scrubs. It was a somewhat mediocre spinoff and only is "season 9" in the sense of how it's listed on streaming services/IMDb. If it were picked up for a second season I don't think anyone would've considered it part of the original series.


hbk2369

Correct


EmperorBulbax

What really hurts is that the season 8 finale of Scrubs is about as wholesome and emotional of a series finale as a long-running comedy could hope for. And then they were forced back to the well one more time and totally poisoned it.


[deleted]

They never made a season 9 of scrubs.


jodefo8605

Lost in Space I know. A throw back to the 60s. But that show was great sci-fi for its time in the first season, and slowly became a kids show and a parody of itself over the next two seasons. If you watched the first episode and the last episode back to back, you'd wonder what the hell happened to the script writers.


midnightfury4584

I liked Arrow for a good while, then it became a chore to watch fucking flashbacks. As if they were intentionally punishing me, or something, for watching it in the first place.


MrLuxarina

It got so contrived and undermined itself. If you watch all the flashbacks from his time on the island, and then watch season 1 as if he just went through all that, it would be narratively nonsensical.


Bob-Berbowski

Season 1 of Westworld is fantastic. Stop there


rusaxman

Season one was absolutely incredible. I push myself forward a few episodes at a time in the hopes that it gets to that point again and it just... doesn't.


ChancePassage4035

Greys Anatomy. Show is a never ending show and I couldn’t get past season 4

Endulos

Stays good until 10, then there's a noticable drop. 11 and 12 are OK 13 is meh, 14 is where it starts rolling downhill. 15 it picks up speed. 16 it flies off the cliff, 17 it hits terminal velocity. 18, it finds its wings somewhat but they immediately break and it returns to terminal velocity.


LosingMyEdge7

Eventually the most entertaining thing is the ways in which departing actors are written out.

American Horror Story. It’s annoying how they put being edgy over a good story every single season since season 3.

Commercial-Medium-85

It was never the same after Max left anyway. My dad watches it with me for comedic relief at this point


TheZac922

Yeah it’s wild to think how popular the show has been for so many years but people are still getting Catfished somehow. Another MTV show that’s dragging on is Jersey Shore Family Vacation. I didn’t hate the first season as a bit of a reunion and “where are they now?” but I don’t understand why it’s still going


nipos12140

Under the dome. Went to shit really fast.


rockstoneshellbone

It was filmed locally- the half cow was the best part


SanfdShab

Obviously, Two and A Half Men. Nothing against Ashton Kutcher but Charlie Sheen was just too good for anyone to attempt replacing him, directly or otherwise.


BlockmasterB

I enjoy the early seasons since my parents got divorced around the same time the show was in its prime, and it was kind of easy to relate to. I get the criticism of the basic humor, but at that time in my life it was needed and now it's just nostalgic. The Sheen-Cryer chemistry as two brothers was just spot on and definitely carried it to when Sheen left (even as the writing got stale). I watched the first Kutcher episode but it just wasn't the same.


Kazan645

You can call him an arrogant piece of shit all you want, you'd be right. But Charlie Sheen was right in thinking he was the core of that show, he was the only reason it wa good, the only reason it worked. Even if you think the show was bad anyway, he's what made it watchable. He really was an irreplaceable and integral part of the show


Solivagant0

Might be unpopular but Supernatural. It started out good, but I feel like the writers had no idea where to stop, so they just run with the ideas no matter how bad they were or how much they made no sense


Randym1982

The first 5 Seasons were and are still good. Currently re-watching it. Everything afterward tried too hard. There was just no possible way for the writers to come up with a better plot than stopping the Apocalypse and defeating the Devil. So they kept coming up with One shot villains.


kcchasez

I only recognize the first 5 seasons. They are legitimately good tv (especially season 2). I just pretend it ended there.


Solivagant0

It's painfully obvious that the show was supposed to be 5 seasons, and it'd be great if left at that, but noooo... Let's see how far can we drag a dead horse


Randym1982

I will say SOME parts of the later seasons were enjoyable. But they didn't really come close to the first 5 seasons.


officewitch

I commented saying this!! If you pretend it ends at season 5, it's a good show that wraps up themes brought up in episode 1.


Algur

The problem with Supernatural is that the plot ended with the season 5 finale. That was the conclusion that the narrative was working towards. They shouldn't have continued for another **10 years.**


SnowDropGirl

Sometimes you need to ignore the fanbase crying for more, and leave it as is.


TVsFrankismyDad

I watched Supernatural all the way through, because I rarely give up on a show once I start watching it. Don't know why, but once I'm committed I stick it out forever. The later seasons were a lot weaker than the early ones, but there were some *really* good episodes sprinkled throughout even the worst seasons.

Jesus that show got terrible. Strong start, then the son is jerking off to naked pictures of his mom, and killing people? Hard pass.

That's when I was done.

Chuck. Last season was enraging


nCRedditor-21

Yes +1 That premise of WHY Chuck was the only person capable of handling the Intersect in his mind made him special, and the fact that >!Morgan accidentally got it into his head without any issues or overloads like Chuck!< completely undermined the entire premise of the show.

I’m so glad other people have actually seen Chuck. I’ve never met anyone irl who’s seen it

*Prison Break*.

By definition, it was a one-season worthy series, unless Michael Scofield decided to start a business of helping people break out of prison.

Arrested Development. First three seasons are comedy genius. After that, WTF happened? Also Scandal. Someone kept urging me to watch it. After a while it dawned on me that it was stupid and I just stopped.

Something I saw pointed out was that the show got longer with the Netflix revival. It was kind of perfect length on regular television, and they stretched the premise of each episode out just a tiny bit more on Netflix.

I prefer the original out-of-sequence version of season 4 because the chronological version uses way too much narration to tie the pieces together. Or, at least, it seems that way. Also noteworthy: Season 4 brought us CW Swappigans. Season 5 is a train wreck and you can see in everyone’s faces that they are just tired and don’t really want to still be doing this.

Scandal is like all of Shonda’s shows where they start amazing and then they run out of plot but refuse to stop the show

Sons of Anarchy got progressively stupider as the seasons went

Red vs. Blue. It’s so funny, interesting, and has tons of different jokes/running gags. You also get the 2 freelancer arcs that are actually, shockingly, interesting, and can be legitimately tragic. Then you have the one arc for Halo 4, which while at first I *really* thought the villain was half assed, once I got through enough the decision grew on me. And that ending? For those who watched everything up to that point, goddamn it hit hard. And then season 15 was okay, annnd that’s kind of it. The rest of that arc at least gives Washington a good arc, but dear god don’t even *glance* at anything past it. Honestly, it’s best ending is at season 13, all of the characters and their arcs are still intact, and you can still see the love and effort put into making it great.

How To Get Away with Murder

I gave up after like 2 or 2 and a half seasons. The whole thing was just about who is sleeping with who. Also someone got killed but that doesn’t matter.


DoublePostedBroski

I just got so sick of someone dying and the kids getting off Scott free. They were the most insufferable.

I think the main problem with that show is that the Carver seasons were just so good, so when that story was resolved they were kinda like okay now what
