Here are 10 TV show episodes that some viewers have watched and then stopped watching the show:
- “The Red Wedding” (Game of Thrones, Season 3, Episode 9) – The shocking and brutal events of this episode caused some viewers to feel disillusioned with the show’s approach to storytelling.
- “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break” (Friends, Season 3, Episode 15) – The titular break caused a major rift in Ross and Rachel’s relationship, which turned off some viewers who had invested in their romance.
- “Scott’s Tots” (The Office, Season 6, Episode 12) – The cringe-worthy premise of this episode, in which a well-meaning boss promises to pay for a group of students’ college tuition, only to renege on the offer years later, proved too uncomfortable for some viewers to handle.
- “The Rains of Castamere” (Game of Thrones, Season 3, Episode 9) – Like “The Red Wedding,” this episode’s shocking twists and turns left some viewers feeling disillusioned with the show’s handling of beloved characters.
- “The Body” (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 5, Episode 16) – The heart-wrenching depiction of death and grief in this episode proved too much for some viewers, who found the show too emotionally draining to continue watching.
- “The Grove” (The Walking Dead, Season 4, Episode 14) – The moral and ethical dilemmas presented in this episode, which saw characters grapple with the question of whether to kill a young girl who had become a liability to the group, proved too dark for some viewers.
- “The Fly” (Breaking Bad, Season 3, Episode 10) – The slow-paced and surreal tone of this episode, which largely took place in a single location and focused on the characters’ introspective thoughts, proved divisive among fans.
- “The Contest” (Seinfeld, Season 4, Episode 11) – The raunchy and controversial subject matter of this episode, which saw the characters engaging in a masturbation contest, proved too vulgar for some viewers.
- “The Nightman Cometh” (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Season 4, Episode 13) – The absurdist and off-color humor of this episode, which saw the characters putting on a bizarre musical, proved too surreal for some viewers.
- “Scott Tenorman Must Die” (South Park, Season 5, Episode 4) – The dark and twisted premise of this episode, which saw one of the show’s main characters being duped and humiliated by a younger boy, proved too disturbing for some viewers.
