8 Shows That Overstayed Their Welcome
you ever had a good thing going but then suddenly realized you’re
slowly running out of ideas? We’ve all been there. Heck, I’m
now! But what’s worse, half of the media industry is in the rut.
Think about it, how many times have you thought “they’re just
milking the sequels”, or “this show should have ended when it was
still watchable”? Sometimes “if you love it – let it go” is
the right thing to do but there’s always this tiny, itty-bitty,
almost microscopic issue of money.
bad or good the film/TV show is, as long as it’s profitable for the
studio and the higher-ups, they’ll keep making more
sequels/episodes because people are weak and predictable. That’s
how we got stuff like 12 seasons of Supernatural,
which just kept going downhill after season 5, making up more and
more ridiculous scenarios as the years went by. Or how about the Big
It went from “funny” to “dear lord, why am I watching this”.
yeah, there have been plenty of shows what in my opinion overstayed
their welcome, and here are just some of them.
you believe it if I told you that 5th season was supposed to be the
last one? It’s true, Eric Kripke himself said that. But alas the
show was just too popular at the time, and I truly understand it. I
was part of the problem, but to think that the Winchester brothers
will still be kicking angels and demons after 12 years is something
just put “procedural cop drama” here, but it would be a
disservice to some great shows out there. So, it’s the year 2000,
CSI, with its bull-patooty fake crime science comes along, makes the
viewers think that dusting carpets for prints, and revealing the
culprit’s identity from a reflection on some bald guy’s head is
pretty easy! All
you gotta do is enhance… Enhance! ENHANCE!
15 seasons of that malarkey. And of course, let’s not forget about
all the spin-offs, which in total gave us 36 seasons of CSI:
started off with enough gusto to have everyone hooked right off the
bat. But something went wrong in the following seasons. It’s like
the creators had this one great idea but then in the middle of it
they thought of something else that would be cool but it was too late
to go back, so they changed a bunch of stuff, hoping that would work.
In the end, just like my previous, the show went on for too long and
wasn’t all that good after season one.
