Bad TV


  • Pitcrew

    I did the laziest of searches for a bad TV topic and found nothing so.

    I watched maybe 1/256th of an episode of Encore on Disney+
    And literally screamed NOPE NOPE NOP as I turned it off

    I can't think of a sadder premise, oh my god.



  • @wahoo Damn. Encore? That's some "Go into the house in Grudge" level bravery, there.



  • Just because it was just so horrible that I couldn't stop watching it.... Live Action -- Sailor Moon


  • Pitcrew

    @Ghost Oh, I didn't last.



  • @wahoo THATS WHAT HE SAI-

    Pardon me. Stopping there.


  • Pitcrew

    Supernatural.

    Supernatural.

    I wanted to love this show. I tried so many times... And yeah. I haven't made it through 1 full season.



  • Supernatural should have ended where it was written to end. Season 5. They wrapped up the story nice and neat. Then it became the dead horse that kept being beaten for views.

    I gotta give it to the cast, though. Good on them for making good money across 15+ years on a show that I'm sure they're well aware is repetitive and tropey. You git that money, boys.



  • The Nevers.

    I mean, it's not even filming yet, but it's Whedon. It's gonna suck.

    @TheOnceler

    They just wrapped on season 1 episode 2, 8 hours ago!

    I love Supernatural, but I love it knowing full well it's garbage. And really, so do they -- a fact which I give them full credit for. Everything after season five is best summed up in a quote from "Chuck", an in-world author writing Supernatural as a book series that is accurate to the character's lives before they happen* and which will later become the Winchester Gospels, because he's actually a prophet:

    "It's not jumping the shark if you never come back down."

    I give them full credit for the recognition of the general garbageness of the show and also that they continue to very clearly and obviously have of fun making it and a boatload of fun with their fans. Good on them.

    (*Yes, I really just typed that. >.<)


  • Pitcrew

    Someone (other than me) please spill the Whedon tea here.

    ...I mean, he's a shitty person, but he's arguably a pretty decent director and writer. Whether or not we consume what he creates is a completely different discussion.

    If they tried to take themselves seriously, it would be sad. But they don't. At all. They laugh at themselves right along with you, which makes it awesome. On one episode, they literally laugh at themselves. That is one of my favorite shows.

    As a heads up, if you only watch the first season, you won't understand what I'm talking about. It isn't until later that they gave up on trying to be a spooky scary show and just started having fun.


  • Pitcrew

    Whether or not they think they're having fun they treat women characters on that show abysmally. Legends of Tomorrow is a good show that comes to mind where from day 1 the writers knew the premise was crazzzzy and had fun with it and hey, the lady characters aren't there just to give the guy characters something to do/avenge.

    Nice! The garbage is gettin' rolled out to the curb as we speak!



  • @Quinn said in Bad TV:

    no, just there to be fake-bisexual.



  • @Wizz Depends. Sometimes he produces good stuff, other times he produces self-congratulatory drek. Sometimes within the same franchise.
