Television Shows You NEVER Want To See Again!

Postby Detective TurtleHolmes on Tue Jul 22, 2008 1:52 am

Well, everyone has TV shows they hate, and never want to see again. If you want to debate other's choices, feel free. I'm not classifying it as off-topic here.

Not that it would matter.


One show I have only ever seen two episodes of, and never want to see another:
Twin Peaks
It sucks. SUCKS. How can they play a single murder to cover so many seasons? HOW?
Also:
Big Brother
Not that it should be called a television show anyway.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Most of the latin American soap operas that my mother watches.

That shit kills my neurons.

Anything with Simon Cowell in.

Dallas, Dynasty and the Cosby show. I'd rather listen to a Yoko Ono track. 8)

Moment of Truth: An entire show trying to get people to fuck up their lives.

Everybody Loves Raymond: Not me.

I’ve always felt this show was intended for a Texas audience. I laugh out loud at almost every episode but found it hard to believe anyone outside Texas would. Yup. *pops open beer can*

Not really the same. For example, Luby’s Restaurant is very popular here in Texas, (I think there are only a handful outside the state, all in the south) and a popular dish is the Luann Platter – which is the niece’s name. As a state, we are also obsessed with high school football and the Dallas Cowboys.

Arlen just reminds me a lot of most Texas cities.

The specifics are different, but the people are similar. The obsessions in NC are Nascar and Pro Wrestling, but beer cans in front of the TV or on the front porch remain the same.

Does....not....compute.....

Seriously, DTH. There's a helluva lot more going on that just a murder mystery. And it's David Lynch. David "crazier-than-you" Lynch. I know it's a little dated at this point, but try it again. Seriously. Watch more than two episodes, and remember that it's David Lynch writing a parody of a soap opera.

Not that I'm a fan or anything.

I will drink to that.

Let's see, Knightrider; Power Rangers; GI Joe; Touched By An Angel; Ed, Edd, and Eddy; Dancing With The Stars; American Idol; Hell, any Reality TV show; CSI; Law And Order; Pretty much anything currently on television except The Daily Show and The Colbert Report; Especially The O'Reilly Factor; Fox News.

I fail to see how many of these are still on the air, when Mystery Science Theatre 3000 is dead. This is a definite argument against the existence of God, or at least him being more powerful than Satan.
