OK, let's try your all time LEAST favorite TV shows ....

33 posts in this topic

... we've done the our favorite TV show thread ... I'm more interested in the shows that everyone else likes that we can't stand.

For me, it begins and ends with THE OFFICE ... I've tried, but can't get through more than 45 seconds of it - ever (and I live less than an hour from Scranton !!)

I'm guessing my least favorite is a show I've never even bothered to watch.

Of shows I had watched and now refuse to,

  1. American Idol -  The show jumped the shark when Simon left.  Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have made it completely unwatchable.
  2. The Office - was a quirky show, but funny until Steve Carell left, now it's just quirky
  3. Fringe - first two seasons were great but lost interest after they found the alternate universe and people started to impersonate their alters.

The problem with American Idol, in my opinion, is that it seems to be on for 4 nights a week for 3 hours a night.  I get home from work and American Idol is on the television until I go to bed.  Except when project runway is on.  At least that show is usually only on for an hour and a half.

Anything on Bravo, E!, or singing competitions. Anything reality, really. Give me a good script and I'm happy. It's those stupid normal people who are boring. :-)

I love my wife, but the DVR is filling up with so-called "reality" shows.  She records more shows than she has time to watch.  Anything with swamps, rednecks, Kardashians, Alaska, the Yukon, clothing design... you get the picture.

Let me go ask my wife what her five favorite shows are.  That'll give me a good start......

Same here, she is always double taping on the dvr so I have to find when my shows are replayed in the middle of the night so I can watch them. But I know all of those stupid singing shows she watches top my list.

  • If a show airs on Bravo! and is not Top Chef , I hate it.
  • If it is a reality show that follows around fame *****s whose lives are completely unworthy of having cameras document it if not only to stroke their egos, I hate it.
  • If it claims to be about the Amish, but is clearly a farce to all but the most gullible viewers, I hate it.
  • If it features rednecks doing redneck things, I hate it.
  • If it portrays gay characters as walking stereotypes, I hate it.

However, the show I would single out as the stupidest, most mean-spirited, and least essential program currently on television, the title would go to MTV's Ridiculousness. If you haven't heard of it, for the love of God, please don't look it up, for you truly are one of the lucky ones.

^ It's basically just a take on Jackass ... typical adolescent guy humor. Surprised something as obviously stupid aimed at the dim witted would bother you - should have a disclaimer preventing anyone over 21 from watching it ...

My DVR must have at least 1745 episodes of America's Next Top Model! I tell her all the time to just skip to the end because the skinny girl wins.

the ONE reality show that I love to watch (call it a guilty pleasure) is wipeout!

I love watching stupid people fall into mud pits.

oh and I don't get what is so funny about "30 rock" and/or "It's always sunny in Philadelphia"

"30 Rock" got off to a slow start. I was pretty close to dropping shows like "The Wire", "The Office" (UK), Parks & Rec, but stuck with them and was richly rewarded.

I was meh on Veep's early episodes, but re-watched them and the 2nd time through was way more funny.

I don't hate "How I Met your Mother", but it does nothing for me. I know it's incredibly popular and Neil Patrick Harris is a great actor but just don't see the appeal.

Downton Abbey's last few seasons took a serious nosedive.

Can't stomach anything with vampires, werewolves and moppy teenagers in it.

Show whose titles are anocronyms.

Shows that are written by a bunch of writers with no plan or story arc, I can't believe how much of my life I wasted watching lost...what happened to the god damn polar bear????...ony to discover that the writers have no ******* idea what's going on either.

      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
