onTD ORIGINAL: 6 tv-shows I started to watch but know I will never finish.



Just 6 tv-shows that I once watched and then decided to quit but not in a "I saw like 2 episode and realized I didn't like it" kinda way more like "youknowwhat I don't want to watch you any more" kinda way.

bye 😘

Orphan Black. Every time I quit around 4 ep from the series finale. I just don’t care about the old guy
I loved Orphan Black until they introduced that weird evolution society and the male clones. After that, I couldn't be bothered.
Same. I stopped about mid way through season 2. I tried to rewatch it and just couldn’t
I think I made it through mid-season 2 and it just got confusing for me
This is sort of random, but I watched the first six seasons of Road to Avonlea, but gave up halfway through the final season. I don't even remember why, except it just wasn't good anymore. (I also already knew how it ended, and was just like, MEH.)
My cousin LOVED that series so much. I love the Anne of Green Gables mini series, but could never get into Road to Avonlea
It grew on me, but I was so disappointed that Megan Follows NEVER made a guest appearance, not even the episode where Marilla dies. Jonathan Crombie (RIP) went in her stead.
Lucifer-So fucking boring
The Walking Dead-need I say more?
I will probably finish Supernatural at some point though I am many seasons behind because I don't love myself.
I kinda agree about lucifer.
The season where tom welling is in was so bad. It was also the season fox decided to cancel the show. I started the new season but its so slow.
He surprisingly worked really well with the cast, but I didn't really entirely like how his storyline ended and now it just feels slow and repetitive and not in the "comforting" way that some procedurals are.

IDK I'm kind of cranky right now though so maybe I will return to it, ha ha.

I tend to stop watching intense dramas if it becomes crap way more than comedies and teen shows.

Some of mine:
- Heroes (s2 when everything went to shit)
- Homeland (when Carrie and Brody started falling in love like wtf was that)
- Revenge (again in s2 when everything went to shit and became boring)
- Reign (when Francis died)
- Grey’s (I tried to hold on for as long as I could because I watched it for so long but I checked out a season after Derek died)
- Nashville (idk when, think it was when Juliet had a super dark storyline)
- The Good Place (I have no idea why but watching that show gave me a really uneasy feeling?? Like it’s so bright and chirpy but the tone is actually really dark?)
- Doctor Who (I can’t believe this used to be my favourite show back in the day during David Tennant era, it sucks so bad now)
- And so many others from 2013ish - Orange is the New Black, Suits, Orphan Black etc.
- Also more recent ones are Riverdale and Sabrina just wtf was that shit

I think also network tv makes it easier to stop watching because you can’t binge watch it in real time and you lose momentum or literally forget about its existence after a hiatus. And I don’t like watching intense dramas anymore tbh, it stresses me out too much. So I’ve been meaning to binge Breaking Bad, The Americans, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire etc. for years but they’re all so long and gritty and stressful lol I’d rather watch a fluffy ten episode show on Netflix.
The Americans and Breaking Bad are great tv! If you are ever in the mood I recommend them , but I get you, it can be too much , especially with the current times
Breaking Bad is really hard to get through I found. I took a year break in between binging s1 and s2 and between s4 and the first half of s5.
Amazon took Babylon 5 off streaming while I was in the middle of it!!! It's really hard to find a HD stream.
That's me with HTGAWM, I was obsessed with the first season (mostly for Viola's acting, especially because you could see how way better she was then the rest of the cast lol ) but then I didn't continue, Wes dying didn't help things

I watched like 4 episodes of West world but didn't bother continue, it bored me , I only saw the first season of 13 reason why

I never ended Orphan Black, that was mostly because when s2 aired the hype I had for that show died lol , I was obsessed with the first season but then I didn't care

I left Ozark in the middle of S2 , I want to watch again, it's just the show is too bleak and almost nothing good happens and that gets exhausting , especially with the current times

shows you didn't finish? lmaooo I can probably count the number of shows I *HAVE* finished on one hand.

(not counting stuff that's still running or shows that were only l season - A:TLA, GoT, Breaking Bad, and uh… that's it. I'm REALLY close on Bojack Horseman and I will finish that last half of S6 one day but I am waiting until my mental health is in a better place, which lbr just isn't gonna happen in 2020 🙃)

LMAO I abandoned all of these shows at one point or another. Though I never even bothered with 13 Reasons...
Mr. Robot. I watched the first season, and that felt like enough.
It’s easier for me to count the shows I did finish than the ones I’ve stopped watching.
The moment I let go of my completionist tendencies, I truly freed myself of so many trash shows. Never going back to Westworld, which burned through its warm welcome fast. Stranger Things bought into its own hype, I couldn't get through the latest season.
I dropped TWD ages ago and never looked back. It feels so good to be freeeee!!

And I have literally 2-3 episodes of Preacher left and I just can't force myself to do it. It started out so good and lost me so hard. I DON'T CARE about the whole Herr Starr/Jesus thing AT ALL my god
