I have a feeling I made this thread before but it would have been some time back if I did and there have been some interesting developments in TV shows these last few years. Title pretty much says it all but in this topic- discussion of TV shows you started watching and gave up watching. I have no real response style suggestions at present beyond the name of the show and maybe a line or two on why you gave up on it. ---- Me I went on holiday for three months where I was faced with either American TV adverts (no DVR until about 5 days before I left) or suffering through a 3g connection (out in the sticks). To that end I ended up with a lot of shows to watch on my return that I have not bothered to catch up with yet but probably will some day. That list sits at Dexter, Breaking Bad, Weeds and probably Castle though at present it has been about a year and a half since I did any of those. Shows I gave up on properly Walking Dead- so very silly. I struggled to get to series 2 and gave up 3 episodes into that after torturing myself with those. Some said it gets better after that but I figure they burned their bridges there. Nikita - I liked it at first, could put up with the rather interesting writing logic but in the end I had no desire to go back. Boardwalk empire- probably the first HBO show I did not see through to the end (though I missed out on most of them- never saw Deadwood or Carnivale for instance). Great execution but failed to click for me. Chuck - I tried and held out longer than most of my friends that also tried to watch it, everybody else seemed to finally succeed in convincing me it was too silly to bother with. Fringe- another casualty of my long holiday. Probably a victim of the "curse of time travel" though. Eureka- speaking of time travel... I did not bother with any of the new Battlestar spinoffs after the last film. I might go back for Blood and Chrome though. After this I think I am back on my would be previous thread which basically read- most police procedural type shows as not a lot stacks up next to the wire.
