When a new TV show starts, you feel apprehensive to befriend it, and approach it warily. Usually the pilot of the show is enough to tell you if the show is going to be worthy of your time or not. You gingerly watch the first few episodes, Google the cast to confirm where you have seen them before, sometimes come across interesting spoilers, and if you end up loving the pilot and the characters, the next few weeks are wonderful. Most of the time, the first few seasons of the TV shows are highly addictive and wild.
Take Lost for instance; weren’t we all dying to know what was in the hatch, what was up with Walt and who were the mysterious Others? Not to mention the crazy smoke monster! The first season was undeniably the best one of the series. Although we adore the whole show and its characters, Lost stumbled and lost its way a bit during the latter seasons. Then we have How I Met Your Mother. It’s better if we don’t talk about it. It gets us really worked up. Then there was Breaking Bad. It’s exemplary. The show didn’t bore the viewers with tedious and monotonous plot twists. The epic show had a perfect ending at the perfect time.
Right now, there are several used-to-be-great shows airing on the TV that are way past their expiry. It would be awesome if they end now. Check out the list below and let us know what you think!
The Big Bang Theory
The things that we used to love about The Big Bang Theory have now become unbearable. Yes, we get it that Sheldon Cooper has OCD, he can’t live without Leonard, he doesn’t drive, he doesn’t think Howard is smart enough, he doesn’t like to cuddle with Amy (or do anything physical, for that matter) and he can’t go inside Penny’s home without knocking on the door and saying her name out loud thrice. We also know that Howard Wolowitz is not a doctor, Penny is cooler than the rest of them, Raj’s love for his dog is somewhat unhealthy, Amy can’t help but pin after Sheldon and the whole group is immune to Bernadette’s shrill voice. There, we said it!
It’s high time for the show to end. There are probably lots of fans out there who wouldn’t want that, but admit it, it has gotten repetitive. Even the vanity cards at the end are dull. The director can easily wrap up the story. We have some ideas. Penny and Leonard get married and continue being a boring couple, Bernadette and Howard have a baby that looks and sounds just like Mrs. Wolowitz, Amy gives up on Sheldon and finds a love of her life, Sheldon gets adopted by Leonard and Penny and Raj lives happily ever after with his dog.
The Good Wife
We love the show, and we don’t want it to end, but we don’t want it to get boring either. The first few seasons were awesome, addictive and interesting. The courtroom drama could have been boring, but it wasn’t at all. We loved to watch how Alicia took charge of her life, worked hard to become a great lawyer, the way she drilled her opponents, her ‘will they or won’t they’ chemistry with Will and Peter, her friendship with Kalinda and Cary, and her humorous quarrels with Peter’s mother. How can we forget Eli Gold and Diane! Even the guest actors are quirky and interesting. The show is filled with good stuff.
However, when The Good Wife decided to kill off one of the main characters in the middle of season 5, it went downhill. Kalinda has become irrelevant, Cary is slowly turning into another Will Gardner, there is no more thrilling courtroom drama, instead there is a lot of politics going on, Peter has become an annoyance and Eli is clearly losing his charm. And where did the kids go? It will be sad to see the show end, but the time is right.
2 Broke Girls
2 Broke Girls was never a brilliant show. Every week you get a good dose of tacky jokes, racist comments and poor performances. Every year you thought the show has been cancelled, but then you switch on the TV and guess what’s on air? It’s 2 Broke Girls! Whether it’s the cupcake business, Max’s loathing for generally everything, Caroline pearl necklace, Oleg’s dirty jokes or an applause round for Sophie, everything about the show is boring and unoriginal. Then there’s a low budget set up, ugly uniforms and a story line that has been used by every sitcom in the world. It is just terrible.
The first season was not great, but it was okay and tolerable. Max and Caroline made an odd but nice team, and it was fun to see how they became friends and tried various ways to earn money. Season two onward, the show became stale and nauseating to watch. We heard there is a season 4? We sure hope there won’t be a season 5! Does anyone even watch 2 Broke Girls? Whatever the case may be, no one will miss the show. The lead cast has potential and they can do a lot better.
There are plenty of more shows that need to end now. Two and a Half Men has lost one and a half men. Ashton Kutcher doesn’t really count, does he?
Grey’s Anatomy simply kills off characters and brings in new ones. We’d rather watch Game of Thrones!
The love triangles and squares in The Vampire Diaries are a pain to watch now. Everyone is slowly moving to The Originals.
Let’s not even talk about Revenge and Glee… The point is they are all pretty much stalling and we are ready to bid farewell.
On the other hand, we are saying goodbye to so many amazing shows this year! Parks and Recreation will end this month. Sigh… Well, let’s hope we get to see some interesting plot twists and fun storylines!
