it is appalling! everything but the visuals are horrid, but the they are so overdone it's bit tacky too. The writing is absolutely horrid, the current g&g arc overwriting everything physically annoys me, the way these supposed 16 year olds speak gives me hives, the fact they are supposed to be like 16 in itself is something else, I could go on an on but I already feel like such a sperg kek.
Can't wait until 2030 when this is the peak "i'm not like the other 14 year old girls, i want to be born 20 years ago when culture was REAL" series kek!
Antoher horrible member of teen series genre is mtv's Awkward., it ended a while ago but I was watching it as it came out and it never failed to severely annoy me, have never once encountered a more annoying MC.
Not really a hate watch, more of a cringe-watch, but Outlander is also so fucking bad, 1st season was mostly
bearable but it's constantly going further and further down a lovely and lush scottish hill. The carribean arc op will forever be in my heart, rip in peace

Ok so it started as a hatewatch but about halfway through I began to like it unironically. The writing is still really cringy but it has A Series of Unfortunate Events vibes and I am a sucker for the aesthetic. >>10571
I've never seen a show so keen on introducing new plot tension without resolving previous arcs, over and over. Riverdale is such a unique experience for me. Veronica's entire character as well as Cheryl (although she is kinda on the fun side in her awfulness) are just… wut. At least she has stopped saying "daddy" now. The new episode is out btw, I'll make a spergy post about the episode specifically in a bit once I've watched it.
As another good hatewatch there is Z Nation. Syfy shows are cheating maybe but I still wanna mention it!

I started hate watching the handmaidens tale. Obviously it's gotten a lot of mixed reviews, and I tried going in with an open mind.
First of all, why Elisabeth Moss? She has to be one of the most sniveling, ratfaced actresses out there. I felt no sympathy for the character squarely because I couldn't get past the actress' mannerisms.
It's so, so bad. I read the book awhile back and I thought it was bad too, but the cheesy acting and horrible script really makes it unbearable.
How does anyone like this?
Contrarily I adore Elisabeth Moss especially after watching her in Mad Men. I would never have enjoyed her work otherwise had I not seen her playing Peggy Olson. I don't typically play into the television trope of 'Girl Empowerment' (because it's usually not tastefully or realistically done) but Elisabeth Moss did it for me. >>7593
My favorite hatewatch stuff is usually with pathetic overweight people touted as 'realistic representation' or predatory reality television where trashy normies don't know what they're getting into. The King of Queens, Mike & Molly, Diners Drive-ins and Dives, My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, Floribama Shore and the old Jersey Shore seasons.
>>10584>Obviously it's gotten a lot of mixed reviews
lmao really? I thought it was almost unanimously positively received.
Other than that, completely with you. I thought the show was irredeemably bad from the first few eps but scoured the internet and found that pretty much no one shared my opinion.
sage because I dropped it after the first season so longer qualified for hatewatching.

Geordie fucking Shore. I don't know if it's necessarily hatred, more secondhand embarrassment and a self esteem boost from not looking or acting like these people, but goddamn they are just tragic in the most entertaining way.
On the other hand I do actually hate Jersey Shore, because the guys were just straight up mean and unpleasant to watch sometimes. In Geordie Shore the boys aren't assholes to the random girls they meet in clubs and don't constantly insult women's looks, they are actually almost nice.

If you find geordie shore tragic, I recommend the valleys, same shit but in wales, straight up gave me depression, makes geordie shore and jersey shore look decent in comparison lmao
I like but also hate this show.
I like the premise but yeah Elizabeth Moss's facial expressions can be irritating at times. I don't care what she looks like, it's more the acting at times. Kind of like Chloe Moretz. It's not necessarily her face, just the expressions sometimes.
in my opinion it's an enjoyable show but yeah kinda as a guilty pleasure. I loved the music and battles. This show is strong in action and… you barely get action. everything is so long-winded. And at the end you know why - because this show is just a big exposition for characters, there's really no substance.
You can 1. watch if for a hatewatch, 2. watch it if you're patient with bullshit and won't be too pissed off in the end, 3. wait for the second season.
I don't understand why they had the junkie time travel and become a war veteran with PTSD when he already is revealed to have PTSD from being able to see fucking ghosts and being locked in a dark room with them constantly
like wtf did that add to his character? He's bisexual
now I guess? lol
true, I didn't think about it but seriously what a lame move, it's like they only did it as a quick cheap way to add some depth into him like he's not just a comic relief haha hihi a crazy junkie, but hey you should also feel sympathy for him. And everyone loves veterans
huh, lol. Bleh.
Apparently people are also pissed off about the main antagonist speaking Yiddish because it caters to the idea that Jews plot to destroy the world. And Vanya being the Woman Gets Cuckoo With Powers trope. And Allison getting almost killed just for a white man to angst about.
Stuff like that. I get that it's a bit social justice-y so you're free to disagree.
I really like Five tho, the actor is amazing in the role.
Nah I think they're valid
points. In the west we mostly don't have serious social issues relating to race and sex, it's been reduced to microaggressions
and how people are portrayed in the media. Which is amazing that that's how small the problems are but still offputting that they exist. I'm not a stupid reactionary that will get pissy just bc a topic happens to be far left.
thing I think is a bit unfair bc I'm pretty sure she was speaking all sorts of languages throughout the series. I did think "lmao they really went there" when I first heard her speak the language but then I thought about it and figured they didn't mean it that way.
Allison and Vanya's relationship was probably the only real one in the show and it was constantly pushed aside so Captain America can sulk or mumble some dumb idealistic shit or make it about himself and his leadership. Pretty sure most people hated Luther so I'm expecting them to rework him next season.
Klaus' faggy junkie thing is so fucking annoying and reminiscent of those cringy kids that insist on doing Joker impressions in high school. He grew on me by the end of the season but mostly bc he slowly acted less and less annoying and became useful.
I'm also prob in the minority bc I hated the kid. Muh genius character just shits on everyone and is better than everyone at everything trope. I hate the way intelligent characters are almost always written to be autistic-coded and they think and know things in a borderline magical way bc the writers have no clue how intelligence works. Extremely annoying character that could have been good but was written poorly. A man in a child's body is a n interesting situation but let's just uh… make him say cursewords and drink alcohol. Snore.
Knife guy is just kinda there and probably has made things worse every time he has been in the conversation, like every fucking time. Not only is he not actually powerful he is also a bumbling overmasculine fuck.

Me and my boyfriend hatewatched You over Christmas and man, what a fucking ride, everyone is a terrible actor and the characters are all supremely unlikable. This fucking series did not make sense in the best way. I was very surprised that it got neutral/good reviews, because man, what a shitshow.

Omg saw this thread and was about to write it. At first I kind of liked Yael, since me myself am very tomboyish with mostly guy friends, stem, games etc. But they had to ruin it by making a fucking fakeboy out of her and by the things are going now, make Hunter going along with this shit.
I kind of like Tristan and Miles, thought they are like everyone else dysfunctional af.
Btw is there anyone normal in that show? It seems like everyone is mental and suicidal. Is that how someone in 40's sees highschool nowdays?

I have to say, I love hate-watching teen shows. I'm watching Riverdale, Shadowhunters, Sabrina, TWD and The Umbrella Academy right now.
I started watching Riverdale because I thought it was going to be a mystery thriller (gave me Twin Peaks vibes) that just happened to involve teenagers. Then they realised that the fans don't care about the plot, they just want gratuitous fanservice. My all time favourite scene is Betty stripping to her friends sadly singing Mad World in front of her mom and boyfriend's dad but the cheerleaders dancing and singing for a bunch of juvenile criminals barking like dogs is a close second. The characters are never consistent, the plot keeps getting more and more insane each week and its attempts at social justice are pathetic. I also feel like they keep removing the danger from all their subplots, making it less exciting (The Serpents are now just a gang of teenagers who don't get into trouble at all, the "Pretty Poisons" are just an afterschool club, G&G ended up just being a game to scare kids, The Farm is just ran by a single teenage girl and isn't intimidating at all…). I can't stand it but I keep watching it every week to see what other kind of weird shit they're going to get a bunch of monkeys with dartboards to create. Cheryl's one-liners are great but they ruined her character by getting her involved with the Serpents which seems so OOC and putting her in the least convincing relationship I've ever seen on TV.
Sorry for the rant but none of my friends watch it.
Outlander was good first season because of the story and main villain but everything that happened after that seemed really random and forced to me. I can't believe this shit stretched on for years and she returned to the past even after she had her kid in the 50s. I stopped watching this season mostly because I don't care for American history but it was also goofy as fuck like usual just to keep the story going and the topic of black slaves was getting so cringey and uncomfortable.
I'm surprised you liked the caribbean arc because to me, it was worse than both season 1 and 2. There's just something about the execution in outlander that is offputting sometimes.
