TV shows that were overrated

There have been a few over the years that got a lot of attention at the time and now leave people thinking "why"?

I think this is a good question.

Dallas/Dynasty. They seemed to dominate TV and culture in the 80s and they were utter shite.

The West Wing - mawkish shite

I managed to avoid watching any episodes of Dallas or Dynasty. Because they were utter shite.

apparently

Knots Landing

State of Play was a disappointment by the final denouement.

And Lost season one. (Didn't bother after that).

HerrWalrus - 08 Oct 2021 15:24:34 (#8 of 120)

The X Files.

Agaliarept - 08 Oct 2021 15:28:47 (#9 of 120)

Lost.

I cottoned on early that even the writers didn't know what was going on so bailed and gave side eyes to everyone who spent 2005/6 banging on about it.

Ohh snap Dh!



Ditto Game of Thrones.

Incest...rape...lots of killings..not really my cup of tea but personally any fantasy world that isn't based in the world created by Tolkien/ Games Workshop are de facto dull in my book. I want Orcs. I want Elves. I want Dwarfs.

The West Wing - mawkish shite



True, but it was nice to know some Yanks aspired to something better.

HerrWalrus - 08 Oct 2021 15:36:55 (#11 of 120)

The Prisoner. It showed promise in some episodes, but didn't really know where it was headed. No idea why it's so lurved in some quarters.

Happy 10th birthday thread

upgoerfive - 08 Oct 2021 15:44:07 (#13 of 120)

Twin Peaks

Indulgent shapeless tosh.

StakludKar - 08 Oct 2021 15:50:46 (#14 of 120)

Fleabag.

And Killing Eve

AdonisBlue - 08 Oct 2021 15:53:10 (#15 of 120)

#14 Yes both of those too.

DesEsseintes - 08 Oct 2021 15:53:34 (#16 of 120)

I liked Twin Peaks.

popstar7 - 08 Oct 2021 16:03:45 (#17 of 120)

Dr Who

Game of Thrones

Line of Duty

The Wire

DesEsseintes - 08 Oct 2021 16:04:25 (#18 of 120)

the six o-clock news

darkhorse - 08 Oct 2021 16:05:48 (#19 of 120)

Why didn't the thread have any takers in 2011?

AdonisBlue - 08 Oct 2021 16:07:41 (#20 of 120)

It was underrated
