Shows I have dropped so far this season and why?

Published November 14, 2012 by tiradical20s

666 Park Avenue (ABC)

While it had a promising outlook, the plot just made no sense and the characters/storylines were strange and somewhat offbeat from what they were trying to portray.  I would consider going back to rewatch the show over the summer if it gets picked up for a second season.  Sets were damaged during Hurricane Sandy, so who knows what is going to happen to this show? Ratings have also steadily declined and have not picked up.


Last Resort (ABC)

While I liked the first episode of this show, I decided that I would get bored quickly by it.  I have a hard time staying with shows of this nature and I figured I would quit while I was ahead.  Ratings have declined and ABC only ordered 2 additional scripts for it (giving it 13 episodes)….I would say I probably made the right decision.


Elementary (CBS)

This show has done surprisingly well in my opinion.  I found the first episode to be extremely difficult to watch and Lucy Liu as a modern day Watson was just too unbelievable to even try out.  The show has steady ratings and has received a full season order and EVEN a superbowl episode.  This show is not under consideration for me to pick up if it is renewed.


Made in Jersey (CBS)

Do I even really need to explain myself here?  First casualty of the 2012-2013 series.  Need I say more?


Vegas (CBS)

I was flat out bored the second I saw Dennis Quaid in a cowboy hat. The show is doing quite well with good ratings.  I will not consider watching this show again even if it is renewed.


Arrow (The CW)

I do enjoy this show, but for some reason it is very difficult for me to watch.  I would reconsider watching this show if it is picked up for a second season over the summer, but right now I don’t have time for it.


Beauty and the Beast (The CW)

I was shocked when I heard this show was given a full season.  It is borderline terrible.  I might consider watching it again, because I forget why I hated it so much (besides Kristin Kreuk playing an unbelievable cop) but for now I definitely don’t have time for amateur hour.


The Mob Doctor (Fox)

I gave this show a nice try, but I knew it was time to stop watching when I was falling asleep during the episodes.  I will not consider watching this show again over the summer if it is given a very unlikely second season.


Revolution (NBC)

I watched a lot of this show and recently decided nothing was happening in it.  I started falling asleep during the episodes and I knew it was time to move on.  I would consider watching this again over the summer if it is picked up.


Animal Practice (NBC)

My least favorite television pilot ever.  I did something I don’t usually do and didn’t even watch the entire pilot.

The newest (and predictable) casualty of the 2012-2013 season is….


Too bad, so sad.

I’m telling you….monkeys + Joanna Garcia + horrible plot/ratings = disaster show


Also, I am very disappointed in NBC’s decision to replace Animal Practice with Whitney instead of Community. NOT OK.

I have made a decision

I am no longer going to follow Elementary because its existence pisses me off.

You can still watch it if you want, but consider it dropped from my blog.  I have better things to watch :D.

Elementary joins ABC Family’s Bunheads and NBC’s abysmal Animal Practice in my dropped from my repertoire file.

Animal Practice Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

First Impression:

This is going to suck.


Last Impression:

The level of actual suckage that this show conveyed is actually through the roof.  I gave this show about 10 minutes before my boyfriend and I deemed it unwatchable.  NOTE TO ALL WHO ACTUALLY GIVE A FLYING FUCK IN SPACE ABOUT THIS SHOW: I WILL BE REMOVING IT FROM MY TELEVISION REPETOIRE AND WILL NOT BE REVIEWING IT AFTER THIS POST.

Why this show failed:

  1. Monkey as a main character
  2. It is a known fact that if you cast Joanna Garcia (or recast, in this case) in your pilot, it is going to fail.
  3. General lack of interesting characters….
  4. It also has that other guy who has been in hundreds of failed pilots.


I mean obviously, the show has not failed yet, but I would like to think the rest of America will join me in giving this a big fat 0/5 stars.

My advice: Do not watch this show.  You will not have an IQ after watching it.

NBC, you can do better than that.
