Great answer, so dumb. One of the whole things with the intersect is people with average brains couldn’t handle it but somehow it doesn’t kill Morgan who’s an idiot?

This right here...



Worst character and fairly terrible storyline for such a fantastic show.

ETA: Sorry...Darrel Crowe Jr and the whole Crowe storyline from Justified.

Nina was really hot though. Better than Martha's russian adventures to the grocery store

She was. Before you posted this I went looking for pics but they just don't translate to her in motion.

Yellowstone where they parked 30 yards away to surprise the grandson’s kidnappers, then sent Rip in on a horse to draw fire.

Straight up ruined an otherwise great show for me. So dumb

Entourage: I thought making Vince a drug addict was stupid but maybe not as bad as having him marry a hott journalist after 72 hours of knowing her to end the whole show

The Pam and the sound guy arc in The Office.

Like, wtf were they thinking?


This was the first thing I thought of. It made Pam very unlikable for that last season especially how she tried to blame it all on Jim and his pursuit of Athlead. I mean he’s only trying to provide a great life for his family beyond what he’ll ever achieve at Dunder Mifflin. And you’re fricking around with Russ Hanneman?

Friends-the Rachel and Joey thing in the last couple seasons.

The last 2 seasons were bad enough and this just made it almost unwatchable.

Honestly Homeland, but arguably the bad part of the storyline is the storyline.

- First the Brody home life shite. I enjoyed the wife, to a degree, but it was ridiculous

- But that's of course on top of the entire Carrie mental illness absurdity. I'll just never understand the concept of taking a show about terrorism, international power plays, the CIA and covert operations and thinking "this isn't very cool, let's add bipolar disorder!"

I don't think it's aged that well, but The Unit was pretty cool for a network show and they completely dive bombed it with the wives stuff.

Nina on Americans was the first thing I thought of reading your title. The entire season I kept waiting for the reveal of how her storyline in the Russian prison would connect with the rest of the show. It was almost like they wrote her off of the show the season before and forgot she had a year left on her contract.

I could also be forgetting how she eventually fit back in. That is one thing the Americans did different than a lot of shows. They introduced a lot of seemingly innocuous story points but waited a good bit of time to reveal the purpose. A lot of shows will answer the question by the end of the episode.

Murder on Friday Night Lights and Ava's incarceration on Justified are the two that spring to mind.

Yellowstone is not a great show, but in parts of 3 episodes, I saw some real belly laughing shite that I could not recover from to stay interested.

Lost tourists climbing a rock cliff at the same time as a Grizzly attack on top, leading to the accidental falling death of one climber, followed by the suicidal leap of another.

Then shortly followed by the slap of a horsefly causing a runaway horse to throw its rider who gets impaled by a fence post.

This show screams for a parody.

I thought you were just going to reference the absurd amount of murder and ultra violence being perpetrated by this elected official and his kids

It’s up there with the early seasons of SOA in really asking you to not think about it too much

Also Andy becoming manager too (which trickles into Andy/Erin anyway).


Andy the character was completely ruined when he came back from anger management and the Office would be better without him in it
