What TV Shows Have You Given Up On?

The other day, I noticed that my TiVo DVR was starting to fill up. It was time to make some decisions.

I’ll admit, I’m what you’d consider to be a “heavy consumer” of televised entertainment. But, that being said, I like to think that I’m picky about what I watch. Sure, I have my guilty pleasure shows (the new season of Big Brother just started!), but I like to think that I gravitate towards thoughtful and/or truly entertaining fare.

But lately I’ve noticed shows declining in quality, or unable to hold my attention.

I used to genuinely enjoy Once Upon a Time, but lately I just found myself not looking forward to the new episodes.

I had high hopes for Hannibal too. I think that The Silence of the Lambs is one of the best movies ever. And Hannibal Lecter is a great character, so you’d think that a TV series exploring his backstory would be really engaging. I feel like, especially for a show named “Hannibal”, it doesn’t really center around Hannibal all that much. The central character is an emotionally unstable FBI consultant, not the infamous cannibal psychiatrist. So I jumped off that train.

Right now, I’m a little wary about Under the Dome. I really enjoyed the Stephen King book, and had high hopes for the TV adaptation, but two episodes in, I’m finding the acting to be stiff and awkward. Obviously, since I read the book I know how it ends, so I’m really on the fence with whether to stick through it or not.

What shows did you start off being into but ended up being disappointed with? Let us know in the comments section!
