I'm not trying to be one of those girls that's all like "i'M nOt LiKe OtHeR gIrLs, OmG, i'M sO qUiRkY", but tbh, I have zero interest in a lot of shows that other girls my age seem to absolutely love: i.e., "Friends", "Gray's Anatomy", "Gossip Girl", "Pretty Little Liars", etc.
I've seen people wear Friends t-shirts everywhere and I always wondering if the show was actually good. These sitcoms tend to be praise for they're humor and story. Shows like "It's always sunny in philadelphia", "Seinfeld", and dare I say it... "The big bang theory". Oh god the big shit theory.
Yeah Supernatural is kind of weird. I watched the first two seasons once and theres just nothing there to hold my attention. No original idea, no interesting characters, no interesting world building. Why is this show successful ? I just have no idea.
Game of thrones. A show I never made an effort to see never was into the fantasy genre. yet it seemed that there was a lot of hype and praise around it, from it being the next lord of the rings the author basically from what I heard not releasing another novel can’t remember the name of it though.
Attack on Titan. At first I never made an effort to read the manga but when I got to see the anime sub my intial impressions of the first five episodes would be your generic action anime but than wow it started to get great loved the suspense and the action. But than reading a bit into the manga and of course some revelations or explanations about was in the cellar of the protagonists home, the delay of the second season and finding out the main character was probably going to become a antagonist in the anime I just lost interest. I still on occasion watch the first season from time to time and it is one of five anime my dad would watch with me but that’s it.
Oh, Games of Thrones >> Lord of the Rings ... most of the time, anyway.
Sure, for an all around experience, LotR certainly is much shorter and much more consistent, while GoT kept going up and down in quality over its whole run.
So LotR has its advantages, but it certainly doesnt have the originality of GoT, at least not as long as the show implemented the original books. GoT really could surprise you and had some very epic, very memorable scenes. LotR is kind of linear, with a lot of lengths. At least a lot less lengths than the books, though.
Of course once the books ran out, GoT collapsed and turned into a boring predictable Hollywood mainstream show, with the main characters carrying quite absurd amounts of plot armor etc.
What really murdered GoT as an experience though was the horrible S7 and S8. The showrunners should have been replaced at that point because they clearly no longer wanted to continue. Instead they destroyed all the good work that was done before.
Game of Thrones. Everybody used to prop this show up as the greatest thing since sliced bread (at least until the notorious Season 8 aired). But I felt less like I was watching the next Lord of the Rings and more like I was looking at someone’s weird porn stash.
Cartoons from the 80s, 90s and early 00s especially the ones from Disney
Obsessive nostalgic fans keep babbling that EVERYTHING were better than now, which is COMPLETELY false since there were many, many MANY terrible and crappy cartoons
EVERY animation era had its share of good and bad selections
The hypocrite part is, the majority of those so-called nostalgic fans obsess over... MAINSTREAM pop cultures! Not over some extremely obscure cartoons or characters that barely has any info about it and may or may not be lost now...
Also, Attack on Titans, mainly because it made it almost impossibly to search "SNK", since it'll automatically autocorrect and redirect to "Shingeki no Kyojin" (the original title of AoT) instead of, you know, THE video game company known for its Neo-Geo consoles and the fighting games that inspired Sakurai Mashahiro to create Smash Bros
People who brag about today's animation being terrible, and animation from the late 80s to mid 2000s being the best are dumb as dog shit. It's not about what's actually better or even trying to "save" animation, it's about them being upset that they're no longer that 8 year old kid in 1998 playing the first Pokemon games, watching "The Lion King" on VHS and trying to figure out which Spice Girl they have the biggest crush on.....
like it was interesting at first when it was small and doing kinda clever stuff. now it's just lubbawobbadubdub! PICKLE RICK! that we have aquaman at home guy... meme's for days then repeated by fans for weeks...
