Topic: Who else watches terrible shows...

...even when you know they are terrible?

Most of my shows are really awesome, but I always have several bad shows I keep watching (all varying stages of bad, and for different reasons: it's cheesy and dumb eg Zoo and Stitchers; or it's one of those life lessons shows where good conduct and family values are taught eg Chasing Life and Switched at Birth...then again I also watch Switched because watching deaf people vigorously argue looks really funny wink <--- that might not be PC, but just try it for yourself).

Some of them are shows I know will never get much better yet I still watch them, eg The Strain. Some are shows I can see are getting better (but not to the point where they will ever be epic eg Dark Matter). So basically they are filler shows.

And every now and then I do a culling and just biff them, because they are bad and I can't take it any more yikes


Anyone else want to confess?

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Beauty and the Beast. I use it as a filler of my second screen while I work on my main screen on something that bores me (and it doesn't really help).

It is so terrible and so annoying how the dialogue has to explain everything every times in every episodes... dunno why I still watch it with one eye.

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Hello, my name is Tea.  And I used to be addicted to Amish dramish.

It started small.  Just a curiosity about the Amish culture.  A documentary here and there.  You know - after hours or on weekends.  Just PBS and other mild productions.  Then the availability went up with Breaking Amish.  Wow! Something new and a bit radical!  The final interviews - whoa.  The real bomb was Amish Mafia.  Enforcers in the Amish? No way!  But I began to hear rumors.  Rumors that it was all unwholesome and unreal.  I googled and found some was true, some not.  I realized I'd been insidiously poisoned - a mild poison, but mind-altering none the less.

I resolved to break free.

In season 4 of Amish Mafia I went cold turkey.  I found myself fast-forwarding through Breaking Amish looking for the highlights.  But Return to Amish came back on the scene.  I thought I'd try it - just a few episodes maybe - just to catch up on the old crew.  One season went by, then the second season started.  And you know what?  I had an epiphany.  I was no longer interested in these people or their drama.

I'm proud to say all Amish dramish has been relegated to the Do Not Track This Is the Old Life.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

I still watch Arrow and Flash because of the hot female cast even though they're both rubbish. smile

Can't say I watch Royal Pains for the compelling storylines.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

With my filler shows that gives me an average of 3 shows a day, so sometimes I end up not watching the filler shows for a bit...giving me the gap I need to choose to throw them out (until all the good shows stop playing all at once, you know how they do, and I need them again)...

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

yeah arrow, allthough im like 15 episodes behind - boring and tedious. Also once I watched all episodes of Everyone Loves Raymond lol - as filler big_smile

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Chasing Life is so family-level that they think they're being really outrageous showing the lead's grandma at a stripclub (bachelorette party).

http://s4.imgload.info/2815yuv4xgmn9mk.jpg

Yep that's right grandma, if you wander up to strippers expect to get your face covered in their pants region.

Haha...I watch that all the time, mostly for the hair, clothes, and makeup though. The actual plot is silly, and it's looking like even the cast is starting to realise that too. I swear I've seen them roll their eyes at their own lines :3

I watched it for two seasons and then just couldn't take it anymore. smile

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Yep i watch Arrow and Flash too but don't think that they are rubbish.
Just started watching Zoo aswell,  while i agree that it's silly but still it's pretty entertaining for a filler show.

But i have a high tolerance when it comes to comedy shows, where i watch a lot of them even tho they are only meh or okish.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

I watch Revenge. I think it started out of boredom and it being avialable on a streaming service I only pay since it has Premiuer League and Champions League.

I cannot say why I watch I have no idea.

I love mindless entertainment every now and then (Zoo, Z-Nation) and can let my hair down and suspend my disbelief but the acting in this show was probably the worst I've ever seen, and I've witnessed a lot...

Couldn't even make it halfway through without falling asleep. Went back to make sure I didn't miss anything and that was another mistake. I will not be watching the second installment! hmm

Apparently the title of the show ended up being more descriptive than the creators realized. I wont be watching the second season of this one either!

"While a loyal contingent was inclined to give Hemlock Grove the benefit of the doubt in a "So bad it’s good" way, watching the opening of the second go-round still tips the scales toward so bad — and boring — that it’s just plain bad."

I'm inclined to agree, and though I have to admit there are a bunch more shows on my list that I probably should have dropped a long time ago one thing's for certain, there will most likely be even more in the near future. sad

Couldn't take The Strain any more *biff*

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Teen Wolf... The acting is atrocious, the story is worse and did I mention that the acting is horrible?
I don't know why I keep watching it, but I just can't seem to let it go..... I might need help.

The deaf guys on Switched at Birth are racist:

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

I liked Hemlock Grove for the sense of humor the sheer outrageousness of the plot.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

Hemlock Grove's definitely on the bubble for me but far from being the worst I've seen so far on television lol. Out of all the shows I've listed, HG is the only one I'll continue watching for pretty much the same reasons Suasor mentioned.

Re: Who else watches terrible shows...

I still watch Scorpion. The storylines are stupid, but sometimes they are hilariously stupid, and that's kind of entartaining.
