There is a never ending supply of TV shows these days, with so much choice some shows just fall through the cracks. For me there are these shows that tons of people adore and love, but I just can’t get into, so I’m not even late- I never arrived to these shows party trains. Here’s my top 5 I’m just not that into you TV Shows.
- Breaking Bad
“When chemistry teacher Walter White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given only two years to live, he decides he has nothing to lose. He lives with his teenage son, who has cerebral palsy, and his wife, in New Mexico. Determined to ensure that his family will have a secure future, Walt embarks on a career of drugs and crime. He proves to be remarkably proficient in this new world as he begins manufacturing and selling methamphetamine with one of his former students. The series tracks the impacts of a fatal diagnosis on a regular, hard working man, and explores how a fatal diagnosis affects his morality and transforms him into a major player of the drug trade.”- Breaking Bad IMDB page.
I’ve actually seen (mostly) the episodes because my boyfriend and his friends were SUPER into this show. I, on the other hand was not. I dreaded having to watch this every week. I couldn’t relate to the characters or the plot, so no emotional attachment was formed which I think is the biggest reason I couldn’t get into the show. Now that’s not to say the show was bad, because I’m fully aware that it’s magic, it just wasn’t magic for me.
2. The Walking Dead
“Rick Grimes is a former Sheriff’s deputy who has been in a coma for several months after being shot while on duty. When he awakens he discovers that the world has been ravished by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions, and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he heads for Atlanta to search for his family. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the zombies on arrival in Atlanta he is aided by another survivor, Glenn, who takes Rick to a camp outside the town. There Rick finds his wife Lori and his son, Carl, along with his partner/best friend Shane and a small group of survivors who struggle to fend off the zombie hordes; as well as competing with other surviving groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive in this harsh new world.” – The Walking Dead IMDB page.
I watched the first season, it was ok. When the second season aired I had completely forgotten about it, and moved on to other shows. For me this show moves at a snails pace and is really boring for me. That and I don’t really like zombies. I do enjoy The Walking Dead Comics & TellTale video game, just not the TV show. 😦
3. The Office
“A remake of the hit 2001 BBC TV series The Office (2001), this is a mockumentary that documents the exploits of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Made up of head chief Michael Scott, a harmlessly deluded and ignorantly insensitive boss who cares about the welfare of his employees while trying to put his own spin on company policy. With an office including the likes of various peers who have their own hangups, The Office (2005) takes a look at the lives of its co-workers: bored but talented salesman Jim, his mildly sociopathic, butt kissing enemy Dwight, mildly righteous receptionist Pam, and indifferent temp Ryan.” -The Office IMDB page.
My boyfriend really likes this show, I honestly have no idea if new episodes are still coming out or not. I’ve seen like two episodes, but they were so cringe, and it just really turned me off.
4. South Park
“The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.”- South Park IMDB page.
Animation is so strange for me, I honestly don’t like animated adult shows like south park. The only full episode of Full park I have seen is the one where they play the MMO online that is suppose to be WoW. I’m not sure why I don’t find these shows funny, I know lots of people do. I guess my favorite type of humor is like 5 year old humor, and is really corny.
5. The Simpsons
“The Simpsons is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family called the Simpsons (surprise surprise). Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the ten year old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight year old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.” -The Simpsons IMDB page.
Another animated show. The Simpsons, I feel like it’s a crime not to like this show but I just can’t. Ironically the episodes I’ve seen were in school, for “educational” purposes…like that episode about Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven”. I think it’s just too crude for me.
