    It's a show that depends on not being spoiled, so nobody is rushing to openly discuss. I've left it somewhere in S1, didn't have time for it and it was kinda obvious where it was going, but with not much substance in characters without the plot drive.

    I left in S2 when it was clear they over complicate the editing for no reason. Just like Arrival.

    But we definitely have two threads on this.

    The dude who plays Ulrich in Dark looks like Dolph Lundgren and Mads Mikkelsen had a love child.

    It's all I can see.

    I can't remember the last time I saw a show shit the bed as badly as Dark in season 3.

    There's going to have to be some kind of miracle work done here to save it. Otherwise, season 2 should have been the end.

    Season 6 and 8 are some truly atrocious TV. In retrospect I think Dexter is the first series, or at least one of the very first, to teach me not to be a show completist. And also never to go near a Scott Buck show ever again (he then went on to do Iron Fist and Inhumans, lol).

    That part was easy I suppose. Place him in a different environment, lumbering wood, no one will ever know.

    I just felt the premise got stretched well beyond its breaking point. At which point that final episode didn't really matter too much to me.

    I tapped out at the beginning of S4, and even then it was ludicrous.

    Dexter was the most overrated show for a long while there. I think I left after S4 and never looked back. It was grim and boring.

    Well-regarded shows I have started and never finished (not always because I hated them; sometimes I drifted away and too much time passed and I forgot everything, thus I need to restart everything. I intend to go back to Mad Men for example):

    Rectified
    The Leftovers
    The Sopranos
    Mad Men
    The IT Crowd
    Mr Robot (I hated that)
    Fargo
    Atlanta
    The Americans
    Homeland
    Bojack Horseman
    Archer
    Parks and Recreation (still haven't gotten around to the last season)
    Person of Interest
    Schitt's Creek

    (It is an achievement for me to finish a series these days)

    The ones in bold I will definitely go back to and restart and/or finish. The ones in italics...maybe.

    It's not you. Most TV is severely meidocre.

    I think we've had this discussion before but...

    1a. The Wire
    1b. Breaking Bad
    1c. Game of Thrones

    a pile of shit in the middle with maybe a series every once in while being worth watching like the X-Files but even Sopranos last two seasons were very bad and most runs don't know how to end it all so whats the point of finishing them?

    I've seen the pilot of Game of Thrones and that's it. I'm not sure I'm every going to be ready to face the denseness of it all, especially given that it's supposed to have a relatively shitty ending. Maybe when I retire.

    Meanwhile, on the other end of the spectrum are those series that I plan to rewatch every five years or so until I die:

    I'm delighted to see Scrubs on your list. I don't know why that show gets hate. It's quick paced, witty and enjoyable.

    Three seasons are amazing, the rest is depressingly bad. The usual.

    We're currently rewatching Community, now on S5. So, so good.

    I feel bad for that guy. He's probably not a white supremist and the 88 probably does stand for the year 1988, but boy is he getting slammed on twitter. That Trey guy is a moron. He just picked the first four images he found on Google Image search.

    I had a friend with tattoos all over her body. She had a swastika (not a sideways swastika ) in Buddhist stylish, that represented eternity (or infinity) can't remember. But no one knows the history of where the swa came from other than Nazi. So she would get assaulted regularly until she tattooed over it.

    Tattoo artists aren't dumb. They know this shit better than most. There's no way to get tatts like that at a reputable shop, because reputable shops refuse to do them.

    The "88" is a huge tell. That would be enough to motivate me to stay far the fuck away from this guy. The "23/16" and "Homegrown" just make it worse.

    People are saying all sorts of shit on twitter so I don't know what's true but apparently this dude used to be a tattooist (lol) and his father was alive in 2002 (double lol).

    I had a friend with tattoos all over her body. She had a swastika (not a sideways swastika ) in Buddhist stylish, that represented eternity (or infinity) can't remember. But no one knows the history of where the swa came from other than Nazi. So she would get assaulted regularly until she tattooed over it.
    I dare you to go to your tattooist and tell them you want a "Buddhist swastika" in a visible place. See what they say.
