Have you ever dreaded watching a TV show you know you're supposed to love? For some reason 'good' television has come to mean 'soul crushing, no light at the end of the tunnel, unrelenting– OH MY GOD PLEASE MAKE THIS STOP' television.
It's not that you don't enjoy them, it's that each episode feels like your wading through a molasses filled pool of misery. But you don't want to be left behind at the water cooler conversation on Monday morning (do people still do that?)!
