TV Shows I've Lost Interest In


When it comes to watching TV I'm much more into my series than just sticking something random on. I've watched numerous shows, whether this was on a weekly basis as the episodes were released or binge-watching a series on Netflix. Some of the shows I've watched have lost my interest for some reason or another which is a shame as I really enjoyed them to start with. 

The Walking Dead

Like many people, I was watching this religiously and was hooked from one week to the next. I feel that when it got to season 7 when two of the main characters are killed it started to go downhill from there. The rest of the season just seemed to be a bit slow and there were chances when it could have been really good and they just missed these opportunities. It revolved around getting revenge on a rival group and their leader yet every time there was a chance to take him out there was always some reason that it didn't happen and it just dragged on for far too long.

Ozark

This is one of the shows that I may go back to but it wasn't gripping me enough each episode. The story involves a financial planner money laundering for a drug cartel which leaves his family in danger, but you don't always feel this level of threat which is what was keeping me interested due to wondering what would happen next. I do think that this has potential and may turn out to be really good I just need to get back into it and be intrigued enough by it to start watching again.

Bates Motel

Getting the story from Psycho this had plenty of potential to be a great show. You always know there is something slightly off about the son and as it develops it evolves into even more strange behaviour. I did enjoy watching it as it escalated and you started to switch between who you were rooting for, yet after a while, I just felt like it was annoying me as it lost its way and that's when I stopped watching it. 

Prison Break

I've included this one on the list due to its recent revival years after it originally ended. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved the first four seasons of this which were first aired between 2005 and 2009. Eight years later in 2017, they released the fifth season to try and carry it on, yet I had no interest in watching this. I felt that they ended the fourth season really well and any attempt to carry it on would ruin it and could turn into one of those shows that starts to decline and becomes known for being dragged on for too long.

Better Call Saul

This came from the hit show Breaking Bad, where Saul Goodman was the attorney for the big time drug dealer Walter White. Before Saul was this high-flyer, he was a small-time attorney for low-income clients and the show follows his progress and how he worked his way up. At first, I felt like this would be a great one to watch yet it just didn't seem to live up to my expectations. I felt it was just a bit too slow and didn't keep my interest, which may have partly been because I was so used to the excitement of Breaking Bad that this just couldn't compete.

Suits

Something that's a bit different to other shows I've watched is a legal drama about a college dropout who gets hired by a big-time corporate lawyer in an unconventional move. I was really into watching it for the first few seasons but then I became a little disinterested in the storyline. There are new seasons coming out and I have heard others still being into it so it may be one that I pick back up one day. 

American Horror Story

If you've ever seen this you'll know that it's a very weird and slightly disturbing show that explores the hauntings and goings-on in different places. Each series is concentrated on different characters and locations, from an insane asylum to a witch coven. Even though they were unsettling to watch, there was something that kept you going back for more. I think it just became a bit too odd and lost its way with the overall storyline so was no longer enjoyable.
