TV Shows that had perfect first seasons and then turned to trash

Empire - amazing, fun, compelling first season. I gave up on it halfway through season 2.

Revenge - PERFECT, gripping first season. I gave up on it after the beginning of the second season, when the long lost mother turned up alive. Oh and later the father too? Trash.

Desperate Housewives. The following seasons weren't great, but it didn't turn to trash until season 5.

Maybe if those white supremicists hadn't tried to murder poor Jussie, he could have improved the show.

Lost? Heroes?

1) Charlie's Angels: the magic just wasn't there anymore without the ORIGINAL trio....

2) Buck Rogers: ONLY on for 2 seasons, the first season was fun, campy, sexy, homoerotic big time. The second season did a complete reversal of all of this, kept Gil Gerard covered up, his character way more serious, the storylines more serious, got rid of the fun characters (princess ardala), added new annoying characters and became a boring poor man's second rate Star Trek...

Pretty Little Liars. I couldn't turn away from Season One. Season Two was a struggle to get through, and I gave up halfway through Season Three.

Revenge was my first thought. They should've just turned it into an anthology series like AHS

I'll probably get ff'd to the moon and back for this, but Girls' first season was outstanding. I knew about halfway through the first episode of season 2 that the rest of the show's run wasn't going to match up.

Orange is the New Black comes to mind.

The L Word. Ilene Chaiken ran characters into the ground in later seasons and changed their personalities somewhat—very inconsistent writing. The first season was groundbreaking, however.

The Golden Girls.

Black Monday on Showtime. The first season was a wild ride, and while the second had its merits, that should have been the end. They now have a third season and a bigger budget, so they’re shoehorning in 80s songs they couldn’t afford before and stretching out the arcs beyond plausibility (which considering how crazy it was when it started is saying something). It’s not as smart as it thinks it is.

Definitely Mr. Robot. It never eclipsed its first episode. The second season was meh, I’m not sure I finished the series.

The reboot of Dragnet with Ed O'Neill.
