Good list. Can't get on board with the ST pick. I think 3 was the best season. Also I get the arugment for Buffy ending at 5 but I have no problem with it going to 7.

Mostly agree with Trick bout Stranger Things, except the S3 part. I think I would've preferred Buffy ending in a vastly rewritten S6

whyy do you think Buffy should've ended w/S5?? Chosen is such a better ending to the series!

Top 10 Shows That Ran For Too Long
  1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (should've ended with S5)
  2. Criminal Minds (somewhere around S5 or S6, though the best it got was S2)
  3. The Walking Dead (should've ended after S4)
  4. Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (should've stopped once high school was over)
  5. Castle (the final season was absolutely atrocious, but it goes further back; the final episode should've been the one where we finally learn why Castle became a mystery writer and in my head, that's where it ended)
  6. How I Met Your Mother (despite S9 being my favorite season, the show probably would've been better off stopping around the S6 mark)
  7. Charmed (should've ended after S6)
  8. Pretty Little Liars (I enjoy the last season and a half, but everything after the time jump is completely unnecessary at the end of the day)
  9. Scrubs (that final season, though, that ruined half of the reputation that the show had built up over the course of eight years)
  10. Scream Queens (yes, this was also on my last list, like I said, S2 was beyond shitty)
Honorable Mentions: Once Upon a Time (should've ended after S3). The Simpsons (I can't even say, but definitely over 10 seasons ago, most likely more than that).

6) Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip

Sports Night would have been next the next choice on my list, and good to see some love for Studio 60 - I always felt the kicking it got from the critics was a backlash to Aaron Sorkin at the time as much as at the show itself.
Is Once and Again worth checking out, or is it one of those shows that ends annoyingly without a proper conclusion?

Top 10 Shows That Ran For Too Long
  1. Supernatural (should have ended at Season 5)

If ever a show would have benefitted from a cable run of 13 eps a season rather than 22/23 eps it was Supernatural after season 5.

Each season after S5 there were some good ideas and a decent run of episodes, but there was also a whole lot of filler. I think I made it upto S10 before I gave up, but by that time I had been meaning to stop watching it for about 3 years and was only sticking with it because I liked the characters

Agreed! :)

Well ended early, obviously, but they did try to give it a proper send off. Once & Again is one of my top 10 favorite shows. Finding it is going to be more the issue. :confused:
There are some episodes on Youtube, but most have been recorded from a channel that edited 5 or so minutes out. 😩
One of the stars of the series even commented on the lack of availability for this great series...

Once and Again is one of my favourites too. I watched it in its initial run and I remember Eric Stoltz as the teacher.

Top 10 New Songs in 2021, so far...

Some of these are my actual current favourites, some others are the ones I think I should give credit to due to the impact they made on the popular music scene. List is not ordered but categorized.

Just as a mere list:
  • CORALINE - Måneskin
  • SHUM - Go_A
  • Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land - MARINA
  • ZITTI E BUONI -Måneskin
  • LA PAURA DEL BUIO - Måneskin
  • good 4 u - Olivia Rodrigo
  • Next Level - aespa
  • à perte de vue - Pomme
  • Epilogue - IU
  • Venus Fly Trap - MARINA

1. Songs that I find interesting, are my current favourites and made some impact on their own ways (musically, commercially, or critically):







2. Songs that made quite an impact on their respective popular music scenes (Despite not being my personal favourites, I listen to these songs, find them interesting and try to understand and appreciate what made them successful, from composition and production to performance and marketing):




3. Favourite new songs from my favourite singer-songwriters, which are yet another instance of their creator's authentic style:
