The worst TV drama ever?

Not long finished watching (well hop, skipped and jumped through the second half) of 'The OA', a Netflix original drama series - and what a pee taking waste of time. It was complete and utter nonsense. So many of these tempt you in with the first couple of episode that look promising only to unravel into a tangled mess of bizarre confusion.

Lots of other examples of this sort of thing I know, and by crikey ain't we getting more of them.... or so it seems.

Re: The worst TV drama ever?

I've just watched the first two episodes of MARS http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4939064/

Must admit am disappointed, wooden acting, lines being read from screen prompts, too much flitting around between 2016 and 2033. Bad planning for a SCiFI mission. Don't think I'll be watching the restSad

Ah now, I'm actually watching that on the moment, got as far as episode five, and finding it a nice mix of fact and realistic fiction - so I'll definitely be watching the rest.  Thumbs_Up

The worst for wooden acting recently was Under The Dome.

 

I got through the first two seasons but just could not bear any more after the first episode of season 3.

I thought the best part of that was the comic turn played by the women police chief.

Youv'e got some staying power, I gave up on that half way through the first episode.

Not uncommon to get a really good first series with follow up series which are really poor.

Slightly off topic but you might like to check out,

The Man in the High Castle

Quarry

Captive

The Blacklist

Blindspot

I am sure one or more of these will be to your taste.

Watched the first one of High Castle but it never really grabbed my interest as I thought it would.

Thanks for the other suggestions. Thumbs_Up
