Sorry, Chuck Lorre, but I just can’t stand watching “The Big Bang Theory.” It’s just so fake and unfunny to me. What about you, dear Derybites? What popular TV shows do you refuse to watch?June 23, 2016 at 3:57 pm #1201855755
I don’t watch TBBT either. The Walking Dead as well.June 23, 2016 at 4:16 pm #1201855760

I gave up on GoT back at beginning of season two and despite all the wild raves I read everytime a new episode airs I can’t bring myself to catch up.June 23, 2016 at 5:16 pm #1201855777
The Walking Dead-Gave up after season 3, just got unbelievably repetitive.
HTGAWM-Saw the first couple episodes, and it amazes me that the writers think that the college students are more interesting than Viola’s character.
Modern Family-Was funny for one season, now it is unbelievably boring and repetitive. This may be cheating because I probably have seen four or five episodes post season 2, but none of them where good except for the Skype episode.
TBBT-First couple seasons where pretty meh, enjoyable at times though, but they have really let the popularity get to their head and everybody and everything on that show is trying to appeal to the widest audience.
House of Cards may be joining this list next year after the pretty lackluster second half of the fourth season, which is really sad because the first half was actually pretty solid and a huge improvement over seasons 2 and 3June 23, 2016 at 7:10 pm #1201855797

The Big Bang Theory- I just cannot do laugh tracks/audience laughter (it is basically telling you when to laugh and say that this part is hilarious! I like making my own judgment on that). I watched a couple of episodes and didn’t even laugh once.
Silicon Valley- I watched the first six episodes of the first season and it did nothing for me.
Black-ish- Watched the pilot and didn’t find it amusing one bit.
The Last Man on Earth- watched the first three episodes and wanted those 63 minutes of my time back so badly.
The Good Wife- snoozefest. Had no interest in this while it was on.June 23, 2016 at 10:00 pm #1201855942

Orange is the New Black: I have watched Emmy submissions, and the show is good…I just don’t feel like watching the entire thing.

Outlander – I just don’t get the appeal.
Project Runway – I’m bored by it now.
Late Night With Seth Myers – I watched for a whole two weeks after it started and OMG Is he just dull.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones – Not a bit interested.June 24, 2016 at 7:48 am #1201856310
“The Big Bang Theory” (though I’ve seen a good deal of earlier episodes)
“Empire” (second season was too off the rails poor)
“Survivor” (kill it already!)
“The Amazing Race” (ditto)June 24, 2016 at 10:24 am #1201856337
I watched the first two episodes of Daredevil and they were surprisingly good, but I have sworn off of Marvel in television and film, except for the official Iron Man movies (and I will check out the new Spider-Man and I guess that I would be curious if they ever rebooted the Hulk and I have to see Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange). In the age of peak television, something has got to give and this is an easy axe considering how often I have been indifferent to supposedly good Marvel movies like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy and also considering how the Emmys do not care about Marvel. I mean, Marvel has how many Netflix shows coming out?June 24, 2016 at 11:44 am #1201856356
Once again, a very deceptive title. Should be “which popular shows did you watch a few times but didn’t like so you stopped watching?”. If a show is acclaimed and continues to get acclaim throughout its run I tend to give it a couple of chances, because television shows are ever evolving. I’ll just say this much, if you’re a supposed television fan and you haven’t watched all of The Sopranos, The Wire and Buffy then you’re no television fan. The three most important (not necessarily the best) dramas of the past twenty years. Comedy is so very subjective, so whatever.
