Knowing how many TV shows there are, it gets hard to pick that one funny or interesting show that is really worth watching. Have you ever experienced that situation when someone recommended you watch something and after you did, you were disappointed and questioning why people like this series so much? Having this in mind, one Reddit user was curious to find out which TV series that seem to receive the most praise are actually overrated. 

The post with 30.2k upvotes was soon turned into a list of various old and new TV shows that a lot of viewers saw as masterpieces, but some people found them to be overvalued and not that good. It included some of the all-time favorites such as Friends and Game of Thrones. Some users explained why some of the series are not so good, stressing some details of the plots. 

Which one of these series do you find overrated? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts and names that haven’t been mentioned in the comments down below!

26 TV Shows That Don’t Deserve The Praise They Get, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group Bust out the downvotes folks: The Super Bowl.

No continuity. They keep changing the main characters every god damn year, the central romantic arc between Tom Brady & everyone on Earth got stale real quick. Weirdest laugh track of any show on this list, guaranteed. The lack of female representation is beyond cringe.

Besides Tom Brady there isn’t a single female character for almost 30 seasons.

But the final straw for me was the way they killed off Kaepernick, finally get a character with real substance & kill him off b/c cancel culture has no f**king boundaries.

Ugh.

That show needed to end when it started showing sexual hijinks as the primary concern of interns, residents, and doctors. No. Seriously, no. Sure, some hanky-panky may occur, but trust me, we're not sitting on the floor maundering on about what to do with our lives. We're reading another chart, putting on the game face, and dreaming of uninterrupted sleep. (From my days as a med student -onward, anyway.)

26 TV Shows That Don’t Deserve The Praise They Get, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group The walking dead is something that always baffled me how it went beyond ~2 seasons.

They had the same loop of storyline repeated in every season - they run, they find shelter, they go out for food, someone gets bitten, they get overrun, they have to find somewhere new. Rinse and repeat for like 10 seasons.

I had exactly the same feeling with this show (i.e. the rinse and repeat). It got to the stage where I thought it didn't even need to be a zombie show, it could've just been any generic post apocalypse scenario as the zombies became just an afterthought. I made it to the mid point of season 5 then ended up missing a few episodes. I kept telling myself I'd go back and watch them but as the weeks rolled on and more and more episodes kept building I found that I didn't really care anymore. That to me is when a show is on it's way out, not love or hate for it rather total indifference. Sad really as when it started it was one of my "can't miss" shows.

26 TV Shows That Don’t Deserve The Praise They Get, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group If no one else will say it, I will. Squid game is WAY overhyped. I’ve seen people say it’s the best Netflix show or even the best Korean show. If people give other Asian media a chance they’ll find way better than automatically assuming that the first Asian show they see on Netflix is the best thing ever.

26 TV Shows That Don’t Deserve The Praise They Get, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group Suits - Most of the episodes consists of these high and mighty lawyers consistently running into ‘dead ends’, not knowing what to do, but they will be having a side conversation and the person they’re talking to makes one remark about something AND THAT’S IT, they have found their answers. Onto the next episode to do the same exact thing! It’s cheap writing and office drama, he said she said stuff.

I love the show, but agree about the fan base. There’s an egotistical current that runs through it. Fans always talk about how only intelligent people like the show, and if you don’t it’s because you’re not as gifted as them. (They’ll usually use big words to accentuate their intelligence while doing it). Not a good look.

Ugh. How old is this one? And Dragon Ball. The beginning of both is fantastic and full of character development and creates a whole story. But by now both have over stayed their welcome and its all just filling fights and drama. Same crap over and over. Like its been too long either stop or re write

26 TV Shows That Don’t Deserve The Praise They Get, As Pointed Out By Folks In This Online Group How has noone said Sons Of Anarchy? It's ridiculous. We are supposed to believe that their "club" is the most important thing to them all and they would do anything for their "brothers". But they just kill each other.

It almost never shows why someone would want to be in that life.

We're supposed to root for the main character because everyone loves him but all I could think was get those children away from this.

see, i really enjoyed the show and found it meaningful, but the meaning didn't really start to show until the 2nd or 3rd season. so i'd agree that the beginning was kind of "cheap", but i think the rest was really well done. i especially appreciated the depictions of depression throughout. i suppose it's entirely subjective though.

S**t writing, frequently misogynistic, racist, homophobic and anti-progressive, and the milquetoast political takes have influenced an entire generation of liberal politicians to be a bunch of wieners that never accomplish anything. Admittedly the cast is great, except for Bradley Whitford, but everything else about that show is disgusting and to see it heralded as a political masterpiece makes me want to barf.
