Just as a bad apple can spoil the bunch, a bad season of a television show can ruin a great series. We love our TV shows like we love our friends – we bring them into our lives, share experiences with them, and excuse their minor infractions. So when our favorite show has an exceptionally bad season, it hurts. A TV series ruined by a bad season is a personal affront, and can be heart breaking.
What are some TV seasons that ruined good shows? Some shows start off strong but end in a hot mess that leaves fans crying on their knees, regretting the hours they spent reading fan theories on Lost forums. Other shows, like Parks and Recreation, have a learning curve, one that turns off viewers before the show can find its groove. Yet others flounder in the middle.Many can agree that these shows would have been more palatable if they had left out the following seasons. Vote up the tv season that ruined the show you most care about. The one that really just hurt.
