Continuation of the last post, click here to know more.
Hello, there! I’m dos Santos, and this is Ulven Reviews, with Movies and series from all over the world and all eras. Today, the continuation of the last video.
More seven series I stopped watching and why.
Before the list, I would like to ask you to hit the like button and subscribe to the channel to support it and help it grow. Also, leave a comment with suggestions and opinions about the video and the Series present here. Thanks a lot.
Stranger Things (2016–)
I watched 1 out of 3 seasons released and an upcoming fourth.
Stranger Things is an enjoyable show. There’s a lot to like, and it’s clear it aims for the nostalgia vibe. I am 100% in favor of honoring the references and being inspired by things of the past.
Then I watched 2011’s Super 8, and it felt too uncomfortably similar to Stranger Things. The thing is, all the other movies Stranger Things ripped off I had watched many years ago, so they were in the back of my memory.
It’s definitely a fun series to watch, but it relies too heavily on past works, to a point we can safely say it’s a Frankenstein monster made of rip-offs. For this reason, I lost interest.
I Watched 3 out of a total of 6 seasons.
Grimm, like with Arrow (as mentioned in the previous video), I watched a few seasons and then left it to perpetual oblivion, even though it was a series I was enjoying in general.
It was not a bad series at all. I liked most of it. The cast and characters are likable, there is some very well-made gore, and because of the show, I even used Portland Timbers on the FIFA games sometimes.
It’s a fun series, and I recommend it for anyone who wants a nice fantasy with a pinch of detective story and another of horror. When I can, I plan to get back to it myself.
Dear White People (2017–)
I Watched 1 out of a total of 3 seasons. A fourth is coming this year.
Dear White People is a series with an excellent concept in its entirety. The idea behind the title, all episodes being directed by a person of color, so on. Somehow, it didn’t translate to a decent series.
For a comedy, the show is barely funny, the trendy memes and terms thrown around are cringy, and only one episode is actually good (directed by Barry Jenkins).
I intend to review this first season to specify every little detail, from the outstanding parts of the idea to the subpar aspects of the final product. Closeted racists, don’t get excited, I can say in advance that the series is not racist against white people at all.
Once Upon A Time (2011-2018)
I Watched 3 out of a total of 7 seasons.
I thought I had watched even more seasons because this show was not bad at all in the beginning. However, the series reached a point with particular events that doomed the series to me.
I began watching it as a skeptic because it’s about fairy tales, and I’m not the fairy tale type. But since many of my friends recommended it to me, I decided to give it a try, and it was enjoyable.
The series had a lot of fun moments, some adventure, and even some action without losing the fantastic and magical aspect of fairy tales. Then, the third season arrived, and with it, the unbearable Peter Pan (played by Robbie Kay).
The whole Peter Pan saga was so insufferable that I wanted to just leave it alone and abandon the series in the middle of the season. The only thing that kept me going was my curiosity to see Marilyn Manson’s part.
Under the Dome (2013-2015)
I Watched 2 out of a total of 3 seasons.
Actually, I don’t even remember having watched the last two episodes of the second season. I was out of patience and didn’t have the motivation to finish the season, less yet the whole show.
The cast, in general, is satisfactory. I like Colin Ford, Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel, and especially Dean Norris, whom I knew from one of the best shows ever created, Breaking Bad.
The story is from Stephen King, and I have to confess I never read any of his works, but I’m not ignorant, so I know how renowned he is. However, Under the Dome was positive, but kind of bland, so I never had the will to finish watching the last season.
The Walking Dead (2010–)
I Watched 3 out of a total of 10 seasons and an eleventh coming, I guess.
I loved the first two seasons, it was a lot about the survival, the change of moral code in the post-apocalyptic society and, of course, finding a way out of that awful situation.
I know some people were annoyed by the number of important characters dying, but I think it was realistic. Some countries can’t even deal with the COVID, imagine a Zombie virus. We would be dead quite fast.
There were annoying characters before, but that Governor (played by David Morrissey) takes the crown. Like Peter Pan in Once Upon a Time, everything began to crumble to me when the Governor entered the series.
Sometime after I had stopped watching, my friend (the one who dips fries in Milk Shake) said I was not missing much, and told me some events, so I never got back to it.
Seasons Watched: 1-12
Seasons Total/So Far: 14 (Fifteenth Premiere on October)
I Watched 12 out of a total of 15 seasons.
As you can see from how many seasons I watched, this is the series I was the more invested in. It was my favorite series throughout a good portion of my life.
The first five seasons were the best. I genuinely think the series should have ended after the fifth season, with a perfect bittersweet finale. After that, the show had more bad moments than good ones. But I understand the decision to keep the show airing, we all need a source of income to survive.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was the awful, sloppy season 12. It was so bad I couldn’t take it anymore, I even watched a couple of episodes of season 13, but it wasn’t enough to overcome my disappointment.
However, in general, I had really great memories of Supernatural, and it’s a shame I felt so disappointed by it in the end, to a point of dropping it altogether.
That’s it for now. Next week, a new review as usual.
Thanks for watching. See you.
