I guess it is just show weekend here! So while I enjoy watching TV shows, I often find myself bored. It’s hard for me to stay invested with the plot and I simply lose interest. In the first few episodes, I could think it is one of the best things ever to grace my screen, but then after a few episodes, I just can’t seem to bring myself to keep watching. And some of them start of great and then just fall apart. I’ve decided to compile a list of shows that I’ve started, had some level of interest in, and then never finished.
Jane the Virgin
This one was hilarious. The concept seemed a little weird at first, but it actually works really nicely. I loved Jane and I loved how she wanted to be a writer! I think I just got… impatient and distracted. I don’t think I connected enough to the characters and I didn’t love the whole love triangle thing. So eventually I just gave up haha. I would love to try it again sometime, since so many people love it and I think it really is a great show!
Game Of Thrones
Yeah. This one. I really, truly got bored. I went in knowing spoilers because I am a person on the Internet so that probably ruined it a bit for me. Plus, everything just draaaaggged. I went in expecting an explosive kingdom show and I got a lot of diplomacy and hushed conversations. Everything was just sort of shrugable to me. I’m definitely curious as to what is going to happen, but I’ll probably just read spoilers.
DON’T JUDGE ME. I’m not sure what I was expecting going into this show, but it isn’t what I got. There was a lot more drama than I thought and I was expecting a slow-burn romance with Meredith and that doctor dude and I definitely didn’t get that. A lot of the medical stuff flew right over my head, but what did I think was gonna happen, haha. I accidentally found out that my favorite character died in season 2 so I just gave up. I didn’t think it was worth it, but I would like to try to get back into it with a different mindset. I think I might enjoy it this time!
13 Reasons Why
This is the last and only viciously negative one on my list. I watched the first season and enjoyed it before seeing everything that was wrong with it. I then only skimmed the last episode of season 2 because I was curious and wanted to know what happened; I read spoilers for the rest of the episodes. This show is so incredibly harmful to so many people. If you like it and you think it shows your struggle then that is amazing. I respect that. It’s just a lot of people have said how harmful the show is, how triggering, and how it does not show things fully truthfully. It is a hard show to watch and hear about.
Well, that’s my list! I hope you enjoyed learning about my short attention span when it comes to shows!
