No. I have to see it through to the end. Even if it's crap, I need the closure. I hate the trendy non ending endings that some shows have. I need to see the bad guy dead and the good guy get the girl.

I've lost count of series that we get about 80-90% through and just stop. If I only had 1 episode left I'd probably watch it out of spite.

For movies, that triggers ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz followed by me telling the wife I don't want to catch up on it tomorrow.

The Hobbit. During the battle when Smaug attacks Lake Town, one of the dwarves said, "I got tbis." Turned it off right there.
Tbe whole movie was disappointing but that was the last straw.

Wow, I thought the second season was great, especially the last couple of episodes. The first and thrid, they were ok, but not great.

I finally saw Deadwood last year and while I didn't stop watching the last season, I kind if stopped paying attention (watched it while doing other things) because I knew no matter what, it woukd be open ended and a letdown


^ Did the same with those giant disappointments, the Hobbit movies. Rented the. For $.99, figured I might as well see them through, but I stopped paying attention early on. So much so I have almost no recollection of the movies, other than them being a horrible waste of time, money, talent, resources and story.

Yep. Anything that becomes predicable and the characters become stereotypical. Sons of Anarchy comes to mind as does Weeds. I can't of any movies I quit on right now but I know there are a few.

American Horror Story: Raleigh. Got through the next-to-last episode and was so bored I never bothered watching the season finale.

For me, I really only enjoyed the seasons 1 and 3, and bailed out on the rest at some point.

Justified. My DVR missed two episodes of a season and I just never cared to go back. Boyd just became a joke, he would be dead or in jail a hundred times over, got sick of his character

I can't think of a specific instance that I have. Granted, I've watched plenty of series and movies and bailed on them midstream but if I get well into it and near the end, even if I see it hit the iceberg I still hang on to the very end, hoping that it finds a way to redeem itself, even just a little bit.

Sons of Anarchy is one that if given the opportunity to love it again, is hsve bails in the last 10 minutes. Absolutely the worst 10 minutes of TV I've ever intentionally watched in my life. Wrecked the whole series off me.

Gonna get me roasted I'm sure but I quit watching Game of Thrones after it caught up with the books.
Stopped watching True Blood after 2 seasons.
I'll be honest, my attention span is not long sometimes.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

I quit on The Walking Dead right before the season finale. The writing really just became insulting and the joy was surely gone.

Man, it honestly gets better and better. And I love the Billy Bob season, but season two is outstanding, and what's his face does two roles justice in season three. So good.

That's another one I forgot too. First 2-3 seasons and I stopped.

I turn off the nightly news . . . when my wife leaves the room.

I watched all of Quantum Leap and missed the very last one. Never went out looking for it. Liked the show, but thought the ending might ruin the experience.

I also missed the last episode of MASH when it aired. Took about 20 years before I caught in on reruns.

The Blacklist with James Spader. My wife and I were faithful viewers, then it just got too convoluted. It didn't help when they would show scenes and plot twists in the previews, that never made it into the show.

I don't recall for sure if I made it all the way through the first season. I didn't even click on the second season.

I HATE shows that appear to kill the main bad guy and then keep bringing him back in flash-backs because they've run out of plot ideas.

Another one I bailed on. I just got tired of all the whining, the stupid fucking decisions she kept making and the multiple miraculous reappearances of the Bad Guy.

Three for three. I just got really tired of complete assholes being portrayed as the Good Guys. No planet I've ever lived on would see murderers, whore-mongers, drug pushers and gun runners as good guys.
