"Couldn't Keep Up With Schedule" usually isn't an issue for me. I just put it in my "I'll get back to it later" list, as I am doing now with Breaking Bad and The United States of Tara. So my organized list...

Won't Finish on Principle (meaning something other than the show's quality is preventing me from watching it)
Band of Brothers
How I Met Your Mother
Louie
The Office
(US)
Zoey 101

Got Bored (lost interest)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Chobits
The Cramp Twins
Family Guy
Love Hina
Robot Chicken
South Park
Will & Grace


It Jumped the Shark
Daria
Free!
Gunslinger Girl
Fargo
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Johnny Test
Naruto
Will & Grace
(for reasons described above, it is on both lists)

May Not Ever Get Back to Due to Sheer Length
Grey's Anatomy
One Piece
Supernatural


If anyone wants to know, abusive gateway fans forced me to stop watching Band of Brothers and The Office.

Id forgotten about Gotham. I did start watching this tv series, and at first i found it quite interesting. But as it went on, the show got more lame, and so did their characters, and i gave up in the end. I think this series would have done better, if it concentrated more on young bruce wayne, and young catwoman, instead of focusing more on the new original characters, where most of them are lame.

Ive stuck with The Walking Dead and Fear of the Walking Dead. But i must admit, there are quite alot of moments where Fear of the Walking Dead gets too boring and uneventful.

The Originals (spin off of Vampire Diaries) is another series i gave up on. They started focusing too much on witches, which wasnt doing anything different to the vampire diaries.

Okay, I can guess why Louie is in there. You explained Band of Brothers and The Office. Why How I Met Your Mother and Zoey 101?

The Walking Dead was my favorite show for like the first 6 or so seasons....by Season 7 my interest started waning and by Season 8 I just stopped watching completely. Doesnt seem like I missed much.

Orange is the New Black was great for the first 3-4 seasons and I just stopped watching too. That one I just gotta get back into.


For me the problem with Orange is the New Black (I watched 5 out of 7 seasons btw) and some other shows is that the first half of each season is kinda boring, with a stellar second half. I heard the last two seasons are really good but that again, 6 starts out slow. So that's why I never feel like starting another season.
See you later alligator, after a while crocodile, don't forget to write.

I stated before that the decision to not finish How I Met Your Mother was somewhat rooted in the fact that Season 1 is a chore to get through. Some fans say that they tried too hard to be Friends in Season 1, but started doing its own thing in Season 2 and became better, but having heard about the finale, I'm not sure I want to slug through the rest of Season 1 now. Someone in this thread said it is worth it, maybe I'll go back, maybe I won't.

I actually never liked Zoey 101 as a show, but started tolerating it for the sake of my ex. She moved away, and now my incentive to finish it is gone.
