With the likes of Breaking Bad, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Peaky Blinders and many, many, many more truly incredible shows filling the small screen over the past decade, it is easy to argue that television is actually better than cinema right now. It's certainly more consistent in terms of quality - well, mostly.
A new season of a beloved TV show is more or less akin to a blockbuster event these days, with the bigger budgets, bigger names, and bigger stories all making these shows incredible, highly-anticipated events. Much like blockbusters, the follow-up seasons can also prove to be major disappointments; this doesn't happen as much as it does with Hollywood film franchises, but TV shows we love do still let us down quite a lot.
These following seasons simply didn't live up to the hype or the previous high standards which made them so anticipated in the first place. Not all of these seasons are even particularly bad, but they did ruin much of the goodwill these shows had earned. Come to think of it, some of these series haven't actually bounced back yet.
