    What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    I JUST finished watching 'Rookie Blue' on my DVR, and I am stunned at how bad TV can be. First, apologies to my DVR, that was an attack on all fronts, and I apologize.

    I just cannot fathom how we can out outstanding shows like The Wire, etc. and crap like Trauma and Rookie Blue. It CANNOT cost that much to hire a technical consultant. The whole reason NYPD Blue and The Wire were so amazing is because they were accurate.

    Here are just a few reasons why Rookie Blue is a steamy pile of poo.

    Badges. Cops wear them, but not in this mystery city.
    Tasers, where are they? In this city, its your gun or nada.
    Tactics, where are they? Again, I know this is not a training film, but holy crap, throw me a bone. There were more cops pointing guns at cops then could be counted.

    Rant over (for now) what's on your list?

    Cheers!

    I do my best to not watch crap, haha
    Too bad, that show actually looked good but I forgot to set it on my DVR. Oh well, sounds like I'm not missing much.

    I don't want to ruin it for you, maybe you will like it, but I hated it.

    Another horrific show is 'Whale Wars' It is so bad it's great. I LOVE whales and all animals, but those people are such tools it's unbearable. Nothing ever works out for them, the captain is such a failure as a leader, it's always a mess.

    "The Sons of Tuscon".................oh,wait..............that was cancelled.

    Give it two to four weeks, FOX will have another turd crunched out to mock.

    Re: What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    I watch a lot of "crap" because at the end of my day I can't watch serious t.v. I want over dramatic, silly, trashy fun stuff. So I end up DVRing a lot of soaps ("General Hospital" and "One Life to Live"), things on ABC Family, that type of stuff. I like watching QVC too. And Food Network, oh and Bravo. But I think I can justify it pretty well considering what I do. I see sad, messy, yucky stuff at work so when I get home I can't watch the news because either I have treated the people being talked about (fun times!) or I get overwhelmed.

    MTV "reality" shows that are scripted (so, basically, all of them). CSI (c'mon...technology like that is impossible!).

    I don't watch TV much specifically for this reason haha

    Re: What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    I don't like much on television, but I watched a marathon of "Drop Dead Diva" last week with my wife. I loved it, but the new episode, the first for the second season, was crap. There's only a few shows I like: "Entourage"; "Burn Notice"; and "Tell Me a Lie", and the CSI shows. My wife watches everything when she's not working or on her computer. She records "my" shows and we watch them together. It's cool to be able to fast-forward through commercials. As for the crap, the reality shows are usually the worst. The vampire shows are awful. Most of the game shows are garbage.

    Re: What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    I hate to admit it but General Hospital is getting so bad again. Time for me to stop watching it again. I only started watching it again because I like Jonathan Jackson. I don't like him enough though to endure the present storylines. So I read the spoilers instead. I guess being a fan of that soap since day one makes me want to know what's going on in Port Charles.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    The one storyline that's kinda' driving me batty is the "did he or didn't he?" story with Michael. I just want to know and that way we all can see how horrible Sonny is.

    Re: What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    I guess I feel like a hipocrite complaining about the storyline on General Hospital, and yet I know what's going on. My husband tells me that if I don't like something than why am I watching it.

    I guess over the years we get attached to these characters. I remember when these kids were born. Of course they grow them up so fast.

    What aggravates me is the writing on these shows is not consistent, and characters basic moral values are written differently than what I expect. We are expected to believe that a certain character will act a certain way, and yet I find it unbelievable. It then makes me mad, and I stop watching.

    General Hospital has had mob storylines since Luke and Laura. I understand that nothing in life is all black or white. However, the plot lines are so twisted lately that I am embarassed to say that I have been interested enough to watch.

    I was really hoping Dante would finally put Sonny away where he belongs, and yet that's not what happened. I guess that's not good for ratings.

    Again. I need to turn off the television, and I have been doing that a lot lately.

    Re: What are the current 'Crap Shows' on YOUR list?

    Let's talk HBO series. Shows that people whose opinions I otherwise respect.

    I have to admit, I never got "The Sopranos". There, I said it. The show everyone supposedly loved, I never got. For one thing, I could never get past the curse words three or four to a sentence.

    Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm. So many of my "hip" friends liked them. I never got it.

    "Hung" had its moments....my favorite was Big Love, partially because I'm interested as an observer in the Mormon-Utah-polygamy thing. But they stretched the story line too thin least season, with the casino, and Bill's run for state office.

    And what constitutes an HBO season, anyway? Two years in between, then ten weeks and it's over?

    My love of HBO sports documentaries (the best)...and the movies I somehow missed elsewhere....is no longer great enough, to justify the extra expense.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
