I made this forum because I hated Master of None at first, but I decided to watch Parents again to see why I hated it… and I couldn’t believe I hated it in the first place. I thought it was hilarious and well written. I was glad it won writing. Tht being said, I have no idea why I hated it so much the first time but loved it the second. I’m stuck.
so I made this thread to see if there were any shows that I didnt initially like that get better when you watch it again.
So I started thinking about shows that get better the second time. Mr. Robot is an oubvious answer because you get to enjoy noticing all the seeds that were planted in the beginning and it all makes since. The same goes for Legion after some answers were revealed in the most recent episode. The same oubviously goes for Leftovers
I also love rewatching OITNB, it gets better everytimr, because I am able to appreciate the top notch acting.
I also found 30 rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and especially Angie Tribeca to get better after second viewing because there are so many jokes that I didn’t catch on to.
UnReal season one is also great to watch again because I get to appreciate how fresh it is and it never gets old.March 25, 2017 at 9:05 am #1202045943
30 Rock is a good one. I watched the first season and didn’t like it so I abandoned it altogether until I watched the first season on Netflix, fell in love, and kept binge watching the entire thing. The same thing happened with me and The Office. Not to go off topic, but I think the opposite thing happens to me and OITNB. I love watching it the first time, but it’s never as good the second time. Watching it again or watching it out of order never has the same effect for me.March 25, 2017 at 9:18 am #1202045954
At the first view of all the episodes, I was “Okay that’s funny” but nothing more. And the more I’m watching it again, the more I fall in love with that show. Sometimes I need to see an episode 10 times to understand a joke. One of the best tv show ever.March 25, 2017 at 9:57 am #1202045966
I don’t have any shows that I didn’t like than rewatched and liked just ones that got better on multiple viewings.
The office, but only because I was probably too young when it first came out, watching it a 3rd time I’m actually realizing the flaws in its later seasons a lot more.
The Wire gets better every time I see it
Kind of uninspired choices, but I think only the real classics can hold up to multiple viewings much less get better.March 25, 2017 at 10:05 am #1202045967
True Detective gets worse every time I try to watch it…Never made it past ep. 5 even after 3 tries.
Resident Stranger Things/Netflix stan!March 25, 2017 at 12:26 pm #1202046054
Although I am a big hater of its most recent 3 seasons, I did love my Game of Thrones season 1-3 re-watch.June 7, 2018 at 12:32 am #1202560201
I’ll contribute to this interesting thread. The only tv shows I’ve rewatched in their entirety were Hannibal and Lost. It confirmed my love and admiration for them.
Lost, in particular, is a nice story. I guess it is my all time favourite show also because I started to watch it when it first aired – I was about 10, at that time. So it was an experience that defined all my time of preadolescence and growing up; I didn’t understand whole of it, of course, but I remember being so excited when an episode was over, having to wait a whole week for a new one.
At a rewatch, it didn’t lose much of its power. The writing is occasionally flawed – often, I’d say, in the last seasons – but its highs were higher than almost every other series. And it was an extraordinarily powerful experience in terms of emotional impact – something that I feel very lacking, for istance, in Westworld, a show I more or less like and find it similar in some aspects to Lost.June 7, 2018 at 4:56 am #1202560252
The SopranosJune 7, 2018 at 5:16 am #1202560256
Lost is better on re-watch and with the episodes watched in bunches. It’s still sometimes frustrating and the final season is still a disappointment. But it feels more concise and focused and generally more impactful.
The Sopranos gets better with every viewing. As does Arrested Development.
Breaking Bad, 30 Rock are actually shows I thought slightly less of on re-watch, though they’re both still two of my favorites.June 7, 2018 at 8:14 am #1202560356
The West Wing delivers on every single rewatch, a testament to the outstanding writing and acting on display. More recently, rewatching both seasons of The Good Place was even more rewarding 2nd time around – I’ve found that with almost all of Michael Schur’s shows, Parks and Recs is another one that gets better the more you watch it.
With The Good Place especially, it was funny on first watch, but the second watch allowed me to appreciate just how damn clever , well written and plotted it all is, as well as being very, very funny!June 7, 2018 at 12:26 pm #1202560507
