Yeah and we ended up with eps devoted to the "mystery" of Jack's tattoos, instead of more interesting things like, I dunno, what the hell the smoke monster was.

I haven't read this whole thread, but I think Alias fits this bill. The first year was absolutely brilliant, and then everything changes! Uggg!

100% this. I knew as soon as they started giving the leads a romantic entanglement the show was finished. I never finished the series.

I completely agree with everyone who mentioned "Lost." I was a huge fan of that show, but it was clear the show went on too long. They only planned for a 5-season story arc and promised the fans that, if the network made them stretch the show out, they would sabotage it with a "zombie season" to force the network to cancel it. But the network did force them to stretch it out, and instead of torpedoing it, they brought in new characters to give the writers more backstories to explore and started making stuff up as they went along, which completely ruined whatever story arc they had originally planned. Those last few seasons were ridiculous. And after the producers told fans way back in season 1 that the show would not end with
the characters learning they're in purgatory
, that is exactly how they ended it.

It was such a disappointing decline that I altogether stopped watching TV shows while they're on the air. I now wait until they're canceled, see whether people liked the endings, and if they did, then I watch them.
