There are a lot of bad TV shows but my loathing is reserved for one that has been inexplicably long-running (and which I have been forced to sit through): Supernatural
Otherworld 1985 a family exploring one the pyramids o Egypt fall though a doorway which candies them a parallel world dominated by totalitarian society . This one very quickly squander what potential it had and lasted a total of eight Episode before it was mercifully cancelled.
Absolutely Fabulous - Joanna Lumley got too old to boink producers, and ended up in this waste of time.
I kinda want to say Lost. I was a huge Lost fan - I was an admin/mod on three Lost forums, two of which were huge. I watched every ep, I discussed every ep. I have made friends that I'm still very close to to this day through this show. I was part of an epic Lost RPG that ran for several years. Yet I've never been so disappointed by a TV show in my life and I've never hated a TV character as much as I hate Jack. I can't even rewatch the series (though I do own it all on DVD) because it makes me so furious now.
Thank you. I forgot the name of this show, but I think about its badness all the time. I remember it re-ran on SyFy in the mid-90's (back when it was still the Scifi Channel) and there was one episode where the kids virtually foment a revolution by forming a Beatles cover band. In retrospect I guess it sort of tied into American fantasies about bringing down the Soviet Union with rock music.
I would like to embrace the spirit of previous entries by selecting hugely successful and/or widely loved shows to bag on:
1. Seinfeld - (disappointed George and Elaine didn't end up together)
2. All Star Trek shows, ever - (not enough red alerts)
3. Twilight Zone - (too little explicit sex content)
4. I Love Lucy - (Desi's awful fake accent)
5. Bugs Bunny - (insensitive depictions of the duck community)
6. The Weather Channel - (too little explicit sex content)
Hopefully that forever establishes my thoughtful contrarian street cred.
