  1. Sword Art Online (SAO) the first season was decent, but most stopped watching by the end of the second season. I, however, finished it. By the end of the fourth, total unrestrained chaos had completely taken over!

  2. Good Girls

    Big Sky

    I watched them all the way through. I think Big Sky is still getting another season as well. But they both got pretty absurd after their first season. I think they’re fun, but complete nonsense most people can’t put up with.

  3. Norsemen

    Furthermore, I think this (shows unraveling) problem could easily be solved by following the classical British TV programming format. Plan out 2-4 coherent seasons with clear storylines from beginning to end, and stop there.

    There are some notable exceptions like Dr. Who, which sadly went the way of American TV.

    But shows like The IT Crowd, Peep Show, Faulty Towers, Black Adder, Catastrophe, This Way Up, Hyperdrive, Spaced, Black Books, etc. were short and great and maybe even great because they were short. Had they run on and on, I probably wouldn’t have remembered them as fondly.

    Sadly, I think that the American model is starting to change this.
