View Full Version : "I don't watch that show anymore."

February 1st, 2013, 6:13 AM
Is there a show you don't watch anymore for any reason? Why do you not watch that show anymore?

For me , it would be Glee. Back when the show first aired, I was a big fan of the show. I considered myself a "Gleek". I watched the new epsiodes each week and downloaded 29 of the songs off iTunes and listened to them often. But halfway through season 2, I stop watching. I guess for me the drama started to get too repetitive imo. It just seems like the same stuff over and over again. Plus I didn't like any of the song they were covering. I felt that they were covering popular songs just cause the producers/directors new those would get the show more viewers. Plus the songs they cover were worse than the originals imo. Also I realized that I only started watching the show cause alot of my friends were also watching it and wanted to be part of their conversation. I just wanted to be included and I realized I wasn't as interested in the show as I thought.

What about you guys??

Family Guy. It's been losing steam since Season 8. I think alot of people would even say Season 6 or 7. It still isn't a bad show. It just hardly does anything to surprise me any more. It's to the point where I actually prefer "American Dad" to it, which is something I couldn't say a few seasons ago.

The Simpsons. Its just not the same anymore. Feels like the try to compete with Family Guy too much

Workaholics. I voluntarily stopped watching during season 2 after the episode with the Top Gun hat because I believe that they cannot ever top that.

Also Supernatural because I fell out during season 5 and never picked up again because I heard the quality went downhill because they were forcing the show to outlive its purpose to meet its insane popularity.

I used to be a huge fan of the Simpsons growing up. I brought all the dvd sets and I watched it every day after school, but once they got to season 15-16 it all went downhill. I haven't watched a new episode in years.

February 1st, 2013, 3:36 PM
My Little Pony. I'm usually either at work or I just don't have the interest. I never considered myself a "pegasister" and the handful of creepier fans kind of scared me away from being associated with that show.

February 1st, 2013, 3:45 PM
For me it's Aqua Teen Hunger Force and South Park, I kind of grew out of ATHF after seeing most of the episodes, same with South Park.

Although I think part of it was just growing out of that kind of humor, too...

February 1st, 2013, 6:41 PM
I don't know, I think I mainly stick around for shows, I don't watch much television anymore but I don't leave any shows behind either xD

February 1st, 2013, 6:47 PM
For me, The Simpsons.

I stopped watching after Season 12 cos the episodes got stupid and the opening animation being changed basically ended the series for me. I only returned for a one-off occasion, which was the 500th episode.

Now I just rewatch the older episodes.

February 1st, 2013, 6:56 PM
Family Guy. It was awesome back then, but now it just doesn't appeal to me anymore. I just feel like they're trying to hard to be funny which isn't really great anymore.

February 1st, 2013, 7:18 PM
Family Guy and The Simpsons are the two big ones for me. Even as recent as two or three years ago I had to make sure I watched the new episodes every Sunday, or record them and watch them as soon as I could. Now, I'll watch if it's a re-run or even an episode I haven't seen, but only if I can't find something else on TV first.

February 1st, 2013, 8:15 PM
Is Pokemon an acceptable answer? Cause I was FORCED to stop watching it. I know, it sucks to not catch up but, oh well ._. .-.

Family Guy for me, just became plain unfunny and boring. Also I stopped watching South Park for the same reasons as I did with Family Guy.

February 2nd, 2013, 11:51 AM
Only one I can actually think of would have to be Pokemon. And I stopped because it seemed too childish for me. =( I'll admit though, I'll watch it once in a blue moon.

For me has to be Digimon, I used to watch it long ago 2002 2003 some where around there, it just didn't compete with Pokemon, so I lost interest in watching Digimon all together.

February 2nd, 2013, 9:39 PM
Ben 10 the first 2 seasons were good then when omiverse came out I was officially done.

February 3rd, 2013, 5:20 AM
I got myself updated to Glee every week it aired, until around the middle of Season 2 when they started doing their own songs (I think I specifically stopped watching after the episode "Original Song"). It was good in Season 1 I thought, but it deteriorated rather quickly. I don't miss it. *shrug*

Primeval is definitely this show for me. When it first started it was honestly one of the best shows I'd ever see. It was such a creative story line with incredible characters and great action scenes abound. The show perfectly balanced the drama within the character's lives and relationships with the importance of the monsters they were stopping and the overall 'main goals' of the show and the main 'bad guys' had a ridiculous level of charm to them. The show threw out plot-twist after plot-twist whilst all the while remaining the same excellent show, even showing that they had no problem with killing off main characters to keep things, however this is where the downfall begins.

Once they'd killed off one of the main group it was wonderful because, despite him being one of my favourite characters (and v cute!), it was exciting to know they'd go to these lengths. Next they decided to kill off the main character of the entire show. This was not such a good move, the show took a dramatic downfall after he left and it never quite reached that level of excellence again. He was replaced and the replacement was good, until once again he died. This was starting to get grating but the show still remained watchable. Then came Series 4. Series 4 came along with the introduction of a host of new faces to the team leaving only two of the original team (and their boss) remaining with a swarm of new characters completely stealing their focus. Honestly at this point it just felt like an entirely new show and I gave it a chance, but it just wasn't for me any more. They then decided to make country-specific versions (the latest one is Canada, I think!) which is just... why.

tl;dr that show with dinosaurs

Britain has talent

after who( a dancing dog) won last years one I knew I was done with the show.

February 3rd, 2013, 9:06 AM
Same as Dipu and for the same reason. >_>
I don't watch all that much TV, though. I'm too busy being on the internet.

February 3rd, 2013, 2:10 PM
South Park, for the same reason most people stopped watching Family Guy & The Simpsons. Just not funny anymore.
House MD - I seriously love this show, it's probably my favorite ever. But season 8 is just... too different than the other seasons. And I stopped watching it since it wasn't as interesting as the first 7 seasons :\

February 13th, 2013, 7:09 PM
I often drift away from a ton of shows. Those I can think of off the top of my head:

Glee: I liked the musicals and the singing. I liked Jane Lynch's character too. I listened to / downloaded some of the sounds. Sometimes, I even preferred the Glee versions! However, I also thought the drama was becoming repetitive. XD;

My Little Pony: This show is a major-time killer and can be addicting. I was practically marathon-ing it and then... boom! I stopped watching it. I have no desire in watching their routine adventures again. I gotta wonder, did the little one, Apple bloom, ever get her cutie mark? Yeah, that was like, the only major reason why I kept clicking the next button. :(

Naruto: I loved this show when it first debuted. However, I had to stop watching it after nearly 100 episodes... I just can't follow a series for that long. My limit is about.. 80 episodes? Laziness strikes again.

February 13th, 2013, 11:48 PM
CSI. I watched it for a good while and then I stopped for a bit. When I tried to watch it again they the cast had almost completely changed and it just wasn't the same show that I used to watch anymore. I don't think I'll ever try going back and watching it again.

Supernatural. I enjoyed what I have watched of this show, but starting season three or four it was already getting hard to watch with the repetitiveness of the drama and so forth. Maybe one day I can give this show a shot again but I don't see it happening any time soon.

I know there are more of 'em but those are the two I can think of off the top of my head. I haven't watched Criminal Minds in a while but I am definitely planning on catching up so it doesn't count.

February 16th, 2013, 7:07 AM
I used to watch Grey's Anatomy until all of my favorite characters started dying. I swear, there's a main character death every season. I was super upset when I happened to tune into an episode this season after not watching it for one or two seasons and learned that one (two?) characters had died, another lost a leg... etc. I hate shows like that. It's plot and character murder development, but that's an abhorrent and unfavorable way to produce either.

February 17th, 2013, 11:27 AM
Don't kill me..

My Little Pony. Seriously. I used to LOVE that show for a long time (considered myself a brony too).

But now, I just realize (NO OFFENCE) but the whole thing is just DAMN STUPID. I honestly cannot understand why anyone like me would even watch it.

It didn't bring back childhood memories or make me feel happy, it was just a stupid show. Stupid.
I don't like it anymore.

February 17th, 2013, 5:37 PM
Naruto: Like Blade, I thought there was just too many episodes and I couldn't keep up anymore. Additionally, I stopped at volume 13 of the manga. I probably stopped before Blade did, but yeah. Not only that, I just lost interest all together.

That's really all I can think of. I thought I had more, but apparently not. I don't tend to keep up with shows anyway, so yeah.

February 17th, 2013, 5:58 PM
Naruto Shippuden: After they killed off Jiraya, I stopped giving a flying ****. How the hell can they just off one of the most epic perverted old guys in history and not expect to lose fans. Also after they killed Azuma and left Shikumaru fatherless and Kuranai Pregnant....just what the hell man...

I've stopped watching TV in general, except Nickalodian which ocasionally turns out a few diamonds in the rough (Legend of Koora and TMNT 2012 are prime examples) but everything else is crap these days. It's either been done to death or like most cases trying too hard to be original.

I almost quit watching Fairy Tail after the time skip episode, seven ****ing years, and they don't age the main characters at all. Seriously, you expect me to buy that....ugh....

February 18th, 2013, 12:29 PM
I have quit watching the anime, actually. I am just trying to rewatch the original series, than i'm good.

One show that I have pretty much quit watching in recent times is Wheel of Fortune. Although I was a fan of that show since I was little, in recent years, the quality of the gameplay had been going downhill, particularly in the Bonus Round. It's actually been a long time coming, considering the plethora of changes that have been taking place since June 1995, after longtime producer Nancy Jones (who had been with the show starting with the 1974 pilots as a production staffer and promoted to (supervising) producer in late April 1976, replacing John Rhinehart) was dismissed and replaced with current executive producer Harry Friedman, on grounds that the show had become "tired and dated" and that Sony Pictures wished to take it in a different direction (Friedman was contacted for the producing job by Sony Pictures Entertainment's then-CEO Alan Levine, who was also an old friend of Friedman's.)

February 19th, 2013, 4:45 PM
Pokemon because I just grew out of the anime I guess, and I really preferred the older episodes to the newer ones.

February 21st, 2013, 8:38 AM
I agree with whoever said Pokemon. It kind of got boring after a while. I haven't really watched it since Johto (other than a few clips).

February 21st, 2013, 4:10 PM
I typically prefer to finish what I start. So I'm not one to quit a show I'm watching abruptly. That being said, there are a number of shows that I started but ended up dropping after awhile. To name a few at the top of my head:

Family Guy + The Simpsons
What I once found humorous just grew old and tired. The Simpsons earlier seasons are still golden, I'd watch those if I caught them on television and I've got nothing better to watch, but I couldn't say the same for Family Guy. That's just one show I get upset about watching because of how dumb the characters can be sometimes.

American Idol + X Factor
No more reality singing competitions for me, or any reality shows in general with the exception of King of the Nerds. I've grown weary of reality television.

Glee + Smash
I decided I would quit watching Glee when Season 3 ended. However, with nothing better to do at the time, I got into watching Season 4 and sort of enjoyed it. However, recently when I got behind on some of my shows, I just didn't feel like catching up on Glee and dropped it from my Watch-List entirely.

I actually wanted to watch NBC's Smash, another musical television series a la Glee, but I had the premiere episode sitting on my DVR for awhile that I eventually decided I quit. Season 1 was kind of a mess and even though they've seen to do a lot of reconstructing with Season 2, I just don't care enough to continue.

Digimon + Yu-Gi-Oh
After Season 4 of Digimon, I just stopped. My interest in Digimon was fading and I never seemed to follow up on the anime after that. Same goes for Yu-Gi-Oh. After the Battle City arc, I just never watched it again.

Magic Christmas Lights
February 24th, 2013, 2:32 PM
I used to watch anime when I was in middle school and for a bit in high school. I don't know, I guess I grew out of it. It's really hard for me to watch now.

February 24th, 2013, 3:37 PM
Family Guy: I used to really watch it, but now it's just plain stupid and doesn't give me any sort of laugh. I think I just grew out of stupid comedy, I like more satirical (if that's even a word...) and witty comedy more now.

February 24th, 2013, 3:46 PM
True Blood. It just got reeeally bad after season 2/3 or so :/ Just lost all interest altogether.

February 25th, 2013, 6:08 PM
Simpsons. I may watch it once and awhile (and I still watch the re-runs fairly frequently). But the new stuff? Pfff. Lost its lustre around Season 10

February 25th, 2013, 9:29 PM
Naruto. Every character I loved kept getting killed and the plot kept being stretched to the point where it was hard for it to hold my interest. Sad to admit since I was such a hardcore fan before Sasori's death... after that I lost interest. I still skim through the manga sometimes but it's not something I can ever be dedicated to again, probably.

February 26th, 2013, 4:23 AM
I hope no one is a fan of this show, but my friends and I finally gave up watching Being Human, the Syfy version, not the BBC one. From the first episode we actually found it hilariously bad, but it just kept getting more painful each new season. And there are more characters that we hated than loved, so it just seemed like the right time to end.

March 5th, 2013, 6:37 PM
I completely agree with you...

Glee would be mine. Ugh. And it's not even the drama on the show. It's just plain awful all around now. Have you seen any of the new episodes? I decided to try to watch one of the newest season that's currently airing (3 or 4?) and it was horrendous. They should have just stopped after the original cast got split up because some graduated. Actually...they should have just left it at season 1.

With the amount of TV that I watch, it's inevitable that a large number of shows that have fallen on hard times will drop off my radar. Sometimes it's if there's a long gap between episodes and I have no desire to start watching again (The Vampire Diaries, Happy Endings), sometimes it's a positive decision to quit watching because of its massive drop in quality (The Office (US), How I Met Your Mother) and others because I just don't have time to keep up with them (can't think of any off the top of my head but there will undoubtedly have been some during my many years of life). So, yeah. Very few shows I will stay with until the end of time unless they truly deserve it.

I stopped watching HIMYM… They've dragged it out for too long and I just want to see who the damn mother is already! Luckily The Walking Dead has replaced it.

April 6th, 2013, 2:44 AM
Quite a few series I've stopped to watch: Pokemon (every episode is still the same, also it isn't shown in free TV anymore), the Simpsons (watched it for, well, 15 years and it's getting boring more and more), Supernatural (the first seasons were really great but then there was a time I coudn't watch it and since then I've never got the time to keep up)

Digimon Kaiser

Pokemon. No offense, but I think it's too repetitive. I'm obviously more of a Digimon TV show fan...
