I have never been a fan of The Sopranos and House.

The late great James Gandolfini was a brilliant actor and Hugh Laurie is a brilliant actor too but both of them played unlikable characters in series that were a little too edgy for me: I remember being glad when House was shot by an ex-patient of his, Elias Koteas, no less.  TeddyR

I just never thought SEINFELD was that funny.  FRIENDS either.

Never watched Seinfeld or Friends or the Sopranos.  Nothing I saw in clips ever appealed to me at all.

Currently it is 'reality' TV.  No thanks.

I'm sure the list is much longer.  Hard to recall things that in themselves do not register.

On the other side: we have been fans of too many shows that got cancelled 'early', often after a partial season.  Mostly SF or fantasy/horror.   Bluesad

I guess that says we are not part of the crowd.  Oh well!

I think Colin Baker is much better as Doctor Who than the fandom gives him credit. It's just that a couple of ill-advised creative choices in "The Twin Dilemma" (which is nowhere near as bad as its reputation would have you believe) had him give a bad first impression. And as the cliche phrase goes, you don't get a second chance with a first impression.

Agreed: I have only seen a couple of episodes of Seinfeld and only one of Friends.

Agreed: two sci-fi TV series I have seen in the last year - namely Star Trek Picard and Star Trek Discovery - didn't appeal to me at all. There is one Youtuber - The Critical Drinker - who refers to the Michael Burnham character as "Diverse Female Space Jesus"  Buggedout

I wasn't crazy about DISCOVERY, but I loved the first season of ST: PICARD.  Watched the first episode of Season 2 last night and was very impressed!

There are a lot of TV Series with a huge fandom, that don't make me want to sit down and watch, besides I watched some episodes*

But if I have to choose one of the TV series that I really dislike, it is Two and a Half Men. I never could watched more than few minutes of an episode, I don't like any of the characters, but probably I dislike more the actual actors/actresses than the characters.
I think mostly of the characters on the sitcoms produced by Chuck Lorre are just a bunch of people with an inversely proportional rate of the more money the actors/actress get paid, the less IQ your character must have. Except Sheldon Cooper.


*
The Walking Dead (only 3 episodes)
Games of Thrones (the first 3 seasons, and the first one of the 4th season)
House M.D (few episodes of the first season)
Breaking Bad (only the first episode)

Same here.  Watched the first ep of Disco and could not watch any more of it. It's not 'Trek'.   Picard I really like.  Both opinions are the opposite of what I see is popular online!

BREAKING BAD

There's another series that I am not mad about: I have only watched the first and the last episodes.

The Walking Dead was OK (I have seasons 1 and 2 on DVD) but I think it's really overstayed its welcome. Also, Negan is now a good guy?  Buggedout

Two others that I didn't enjoy:

The Prisoner remake with Sir Ian McKellen
The Day of The Triffids remake with whoever.

Not yet.  I have heard it is better than the recent live action versions?  I have been meaning to take a look.

I liked The Orville.

it's probably poor form to write off an entire multi-season series based on the first episode, but the first ep of BB grated on me so much. . it almost felt like someone trying to combine Tarantino and Coen Bros styles, but missing the mark by a mile

I admit my patience levels tend to expire very easily if I'm not immediately gripped by something though. when people say things like "you have to stick with it, it gets so much better", I'm already out

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
