    Name a popular tv show you don't like

    Is there a really popular tv show that everyone seems to like but you?

    I thought of this because as much as I am excited for The Walking Dead to return tonight, I know it's not for everybody. I never thought I could get into any zombie-type show, but I love the storyline and characters.

    For me, it seems like everyone loves and raves about Game of Thrones. My friends are always talking about it and insisting that I have to watch it. I tried but just could not get into it. In all fairness, I only dedicated about 15 minutes of my life to it before determining it's just not for me.

    Hey,

    lol for me I don't have time to watch anything until I graduate. Then I will binge watch all the shows everyone is always talking about. Currently I am watching Stranger Things and Riverdale. I have not yet watched Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. I see all my non nursing friends talk about these shows all the time lol and I have no idea what is going on. I feel like I have no life now because I can't do anything fun due to being in an accelerated program and always having exams after exams. But I don't like zombie shows either so I don't know what all the excitement is about.

    Have a great day!

    I hate The Big Bang Theory.

    The first season or so was funny but the show is just not funny anymore in my opinion. I don't really have time to watch much tv anyways!

    Thanks!!

    Hey there,

    I guess I would have to say SURVIVOR. I could just never get into it. All my friends were watching and they even had "SURVIVOR parties" believe it or not.

    A couple of other shows I haven't been able to get into are; Amazing Race and Big Brother.

    With that said I do like some reality tv shows...LOL.

    Thanks for the post!

    I don't understand why anyone would like Celebrity Big Brother. It's so overrated, especially when the news hit that Omarosa was spilling the beans on Donald Trump and Mike Pence. It was newsworthy for like 3 or 4 days and then it died quickly. Stuff like things makes me wonder whether watching tv is really worth my time anymore.

    hi napajaja21,
    i am with mr. vancleef ... big bang theory just seemed to become too pleased with itself at some point to be consistently funny. "hey everybody! look we are using a concept from theoretical physics in this sitcom!"
    also, i could never get into Game of Thrones... that show is just too mean spirited.

    Re: Name a popular tv show you don't like

    I don't particular not like any shows lol, mostly because if I do try out a new show and it doesn't seem to suit my taste then I just drop it altogether, but it's not like I hate it or anything. I haven't tried out Game of Thrones, but I don't think it would be a show I like very much. I typically go for comedy shows like Friends or Fuller House or The Office.. I used to like watching NCIS, but now I don't think that's a show I love very much and can't really seem to follow through watching the entire series so I guess this is one show I don't particularly like much lol (but I have nothing against it though x))

    Have a good one!

    Re: Name a popular tv show you don't like

    Really don't like TV during this time what so ever. Its either the news channels with too much political controversy or depressing news or just terrible replacements for old TV shows. One show in particular is Greys Anatomy. Being a medical based student, and with my mom holding onto a strong medical background, all we can do is laugh at a show making millions with millions of medical inconsistencies and false ideals. From a tracheostomy to the cheesy conversations had around the op table, it is more of a laugh than a show to anxiously wait for every week. Not to mention the horrific acting.

    Re: Name a popular tv show you don't like

    The Big Bang Theory. I just feel like its base template is far too simple and straightforward for a show that's supposedly about really smart people. So often the premise of an episode is simply Sheldon not understanding some societal norm with some commentary on modern nerd culture as a backdrop. There just didn't seem to be much value in watching more than a couple episodes as far as I was concerned.

    Hi, I agree with Eddie, I do not like Celebrity Big Brother and shows like that. I feel this show is wannabe celebrities, just like Marriage Boot Camp or others that tend to be repeated and rehashed. When is enough, enough? Along the same lines, too many shows seem to carry a loose sex scheme, can't we do better than a Jerry Springer show?

    Hey Nancy!

    Keeping Up With The Kardashians is probably the worst show ever. I watched it once a few weeks ago with my best friend because she's obsessed with that show and family (much like the rest of the world) and I seriously felt my brain cells just kill themselves as I was watching it. To me, there was just no substance or depth to the show at all. I couldn't even make it though an episode.

    Best!
