    Are there any shows that get a lot praise that you have tried to watch youself and just didn't like them.

    For me it's -


    American Horror Story
    - I tried Season 2 and 3, couldn't finish either. Both stories just seemed like they were trying too hard to be bizarre and out there. Just really didn't find the story or characters interesting at all.


    Sons Of Anarchy - Actually was kind of into this show at first but it just got old after a few seasons.


    The Walking Dead - Never saw the appeal in this show, only watched the first and second season and both were really dull. Zombie killing is cool, but 85% of the characters are annoying as hell.


    P.S

    I'm not just someone who hates mainstream show, I love Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones.

    The Wire: I'll get past episode four before I die.

    24: Sutherland reminds me of Bruce Willis.

    Breaking Bad - Partially because of it's disgusting fan base. Oh Breaking Bad is the best TV show ever? What's that, you've never seen The Wire, GoT, Sopranos, or X-Files but Breaking Bad is obviously better? Fuck outta here.

    Walking dead - commercials are a turn off and I won't watch an episode

    Duck dynasty - naw

    Big bang theory - Sheldon says stupid funny shit but naw

    The real word - shit was done years back

    Anything on CBS or fox during the nights - cartoon shit is lame and can't get into things like "the good wife?"

    There's others

    Shame on you Sam!

    The Wire is one if not the best show ever!
    Go watch now! Or I'll hump your leg until you tear your ACL.

    For me its Brooklyn 9 9, I saw 2 episodes and almost killed my self.
    It was so damn unfunny. And the guy in the lead. Dick bag.

    I agree on The Wire. I didn't hate it, I made it through 4 seasons. But it was a slow process, it never did draw me in that hard. Nothing really drove me from one episode to the next.

    How anyone can make it through one episode of any of these show is beyond me.

    TS listen what I had in mind. My ex-gf tried to get me into these series, but I never liked them too much, watch a few seasons while was still with her, havent watched any since break-up and not even thinking about watching them again.

    Breaking Bad.

    Was convinced to give it a try, and I did. But for whatever reason, it just never pulled me in.

    Watched the first season of Vikings and was not a big fan.

    What sucks is my room mate watches all these shows so I end up having to watch them anyway.

    Big Bang Theory is very generic and approachable. It's not all that good, but not hard to watch at all. As far as derivative sitcoms go, it's pretty tightly written and performed.

    I've really only seen one episode but it was really really bad, seems like a show that would have lasted a few episodes and gotten canceled.

    There is obviously an appeal, I just don't see it.
