The Big Bang Theory
One commentator who thinks The Big Bang Theory is overrated says, “This show is designed to make the stupid people who watch it feel like they’re smart for watching a science show.” Another user adds, “The canned laughter after every word makes it unbearable.”
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
A Reddit user who does not find the show funny says, “(Its) a bunch of gross-out humor trying to be smart.”
Two and a Half Men
One fan says, “It was a modern spin on the Odd Couple and Id vs. Ego. It was sophomoric and low-brow but still funny and clever.” Unfortunately, things went downhill in the last seasons.
“The show looks and sounds great, but the writing stinks,” complains a fan. Another user notes, “Season 1 had some claim showing the darker side of modern teenagehood. Season 2 was just silly.” Besides, the sex scenes are uncomfortable for some users, and they find drug use triggering.
A different commentator who thinks the show is overrated states, “People are afraid to say how shitty it is for fear of being ejected from the cool kids’ table.”
“It’s just a medical drama with no special characters,” a user points out. Plus, the script lacks creativity and character development since it started as a medical drama and then turned into a soap opera.
As one of the most-watched sitcom shows, Friends received praise during and after its run. However, some Reddit users find it terrible, especially without the laugh track.
According to one commentator, “It (Friends) is good sometimes, but people act like it’s the greatest ever.” Besides, “It programs people to laugh at the most mundane comments or situations,” adds another commentator.
The Walking Dead
Many Reddit users feel The Walking Dead’s first four seasons were incredible, but seasons 5 to 7 were “garbage.” One frustrated fan says, “The show somehow made zombies boring.” It gets to a point where the show revolves around endless walking, zombies, and unnecessary drama.
How I Met Your Mother
Considering its terrible ending, one commentator feels the show’s name should be changed to “How I Settled for Your Mother.”
Another overrated show with a great first season was You. But as a fan points out, “Everything after it became repetition.”
As a cooking show, fans expect MasterChef USA to focus on cooking. Sadly, the show mainly focuses on “heart-rending backstories of contestants, faked rivalries, and dramas.”
Jenna Ortega is an excellent actor on Wednesday, and Reddit users complement her acting to the success of the TV show. But some commentators wonder “if Ortega (Wednesday) is more than a cute face with glance skill.”
