10 Plot Twists That Totally Ruined Awesome TV Shows
It was all going so well for these TV shows... until somebody decided to throw an unwanted, twist-shaped spanner into the works, that is.
A plot twist can be a wonderful thing, or it can be a facepalm-inducing kiss of death for a TV show. When writers get it right, it can breath new life into a tired formula and catch even the most devoted fans off guard, but if they screw up, longtime fans may end up feeling alienated and ultimately end up abandoning the show as a result. For every brilliant twist out there, there are some iconically awful ones which have been the mockery of fans and non-fans alike ever since. These twists failed for a variety of reasons, though the main reason is simple implausibility. The writers asked audiences to suspend their disbelief to such a ridiculous degree that the show ultimately collapsed under its own weight and was never the same again. Of course, if you disagree or feel that I've missed any major twists, let me know in the comments or forever hold your peace!
