Over the years, television has provided us with entertainment, agony, happiness, sadness, grief, and every other emotion you could ever think of. Even hunger.
People put a lot of their precious free time into television, whether they are writing it and making it, or just sitting at home watching it. As a result, there is a lot of pressure to get it right. Sometimes they manage it, but sometimes they plough everything into a fiery pit and ruin it all.
Some of the best television shows are prone to getting it wrong, leaving audiences to pick up the pieces when it feels like the makers of their favorite shows have stabbed them in the back.
Take terrible plot twists, for example. They are magic, in the respect that they are a single moment that can completely ruin something that at one point was your whole life. Yes, that might sound dramatic, but it can be easy to get invested in something only to see it all fall apart because of a dumb decision to twist things for effect at the last...
10. Pretty Much Everything - Lost
Oh, Lost, you had so much potential, what happened?
Lost first appeared on-screen during a time when binging television show was impossible.
Back then, audiences invested a lot more of their lives into TV shows, with the plots and characters becoming a social event as well as a personal event. Every day people would go into work and discuss the latest episodes along with their theories about what happened and who was going to die next.
Lost was one of such shows, baffling audiences all over the world episode by episode, season by season, until it all just got a bit too much.
During the first few seasons, things were going great, and that includes the random Polar Bear that was chilling on a desert island. But then came the flash-forward scene that everybody thought was a flashback, along with the cork that kept the water in, and the random characters that appeared without an explanation, only to disappear with an explanation.
And then to top it all off came the ending! Now that's not a way to treat your fans.
