In your opinion what is the worst series to debut this season?
My choices right now are: ABC’s Wicked City and Of Kings & Prophets and NBC’s Game of Silence.
What are your picks for the worst series of the season?April 16, 2016 at 9:49 pm #1201746743
The Odd Couple is quite painful to watch.April 17, 2016 at 2:34 am #1201746756
Blindspot is the worst of the shows I tried to watch this seasonApril 17, 2016 at 2:47 am #1201746758
Shades of BlueApril 17, 2016 at 4:04 am #1201746761
Also the new Netflix comedies are all horrible, Love, Flaked, The Ranch.April 17, 2016 at 4:06 am #1201746760
Quantico by far.April 17, 2016 at 4:54 am #1201746762
I don’t tend to watch, and stick with, a show I didn’t really like the first few episodes of.
However, I would say Empire bucks that trend. I had issues with the first season, but kind of forced myself to stick with it to see if it got better, and to try and justify to myself why it got the viewing figures it did.
I watched about two episodes of Season 2 and gave up. It is just so bad! Such clunky writing and uninteresting characters. We’re meant to believe Lucious is some devilish menace, but it is hilarious in its failure. Also Chris Rock is not some prison head honcho who can run a mock with every bad guy going.
Cookie was the main draw for Season One, but it just became stale in the opening episodes of Season Two. I don’t care who manages the record company. I don’t care about who is sleeping with who. The characters are so selfish that they aren’t engaging. There isn’t really a character of hope, nor do the character have a redeeming quality (maybe Jamal is the only saving grace out of the main characters).
How this is as popular as it is, while high quality shows fail to gain the audience figures baffles me!
Also, I love LOVE and Quantico. Neither are anywhere near the worst of the season.April 17, 2016 at 5:52 am #1201746763

I havent seen every show obviously, and to take critical reception into consideration of what I watch so I havent seen every awful show, but:
American Horror Story: Hotel
and I saw an episode of The Odd Couple on a plane and it was still awful
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.April 17, 2016 at 3:15 pm #1201746862
I’ll throw in Scream Queens as being worthy of consideration. It was a complete and utter mess from a storytelling perspective. There were a few bright spots with the more absurd, over-the-top characters and performances (mainly Niecy Nash), but it made no sense.April 17, 2016 at 3:29 pm #1201746865
American Horror Storry: Hotel
It was TERRIBLEApril 17, 2016 at 3:57 pm #1201746870
Love is AWFUL. Blech. Hotel was terrible as well.
