  1. i disagree with himym being an honorable mention. The first three seasons were strongest and continued to be very good and season 9 was incredible in my opinion. So much great character and it felt so real. then again it’s one of my favorite tv shows.

  2. I’m surprised you didn’t put “Happy Days” in the list somewhere, not even the Honorable mentioned, despite showing clips of it in the intro. After all, it’s the show that coined the concept of “Jumping the shark” in the first place.

  3. just came to see who would mention watch mojo making a video about shows that are running out of ideas when watch mojo is running out of ideas lol

  4. Game of Thrones Season 7 and 8, comes to mind, I was not surprised, the show was not perfect to me, cause there are flaws and issues but nobody listened to me and think its great, but it got bad with the final season, in the end, I got the last laugh and was right all along, jeez, can people just listen to me for once, cause when something happens, I end up being right in the end.
