Shows that I have given up this season
Nathan Fillion's charm made this show stay on my schedule for much longer than it would have had he not starred in it. But even that wears thin after a while when there's nothing of substance to cling to. I'm not sure if I'm totally done with the show, I might marathon it this summer, but for right now, I'm done with this season.
I lasted three episodes and then I packed it in. Again. I just don't care about these people, and the annoying way they went about keeping Chuck and Sarah apart did the show no favors with this non-'shipper. I really wish I could see what everyone else sees in this show, because apparently I'm missing something brilliant? I just don't see it at all.
When it returned from hiatus I couldn't even remember what had happened, who the characters we were supposed to care about were (except for The Cho) or why I should care. I took it as a sign that I had better things to do.
While I liked Baze and enjoyed the novelty for a while, I just can't bring myself to get invested in this show. It's too...I don't know, cutesy or something? While at the same time thinking it's edgy. It just feels kinda fake, like it's trying to rise above itself when they'd be much better served keeping it true to itself.
When Van Pelt and whosit got together and I still didn't give a damn I knew it was time to pack it in. It had been on the bubble for a while, but I hadn't had a reason to stop. Strangely enough, something happening that I wanted to happen gave me the push I needed.
The new host was a dud. Bring back Jaclyn and I may reconsider watching this show.
I had a bad feeling and spoiled myself for the show. Now that Rob's out, my interest has plummeted and while I enjoyed watching the rest be wretched when I had someone to root for, I'm not about to waste my time on people I disliked for the most part.
The Vampire Diaries
This show is pretty much Chuck v.2 for me - everyone keeps insisting that it's brilliant and I just don't see it. Not only do I not see it, I'm mostly just bored by it. When I couldn't even be bothered to figure out what the last episode I'd watched was I knew it was time to pack it in. Maybe marathoning it will help?
