With so many A-list directors and actors taking to the small screen to do TV shows recently, you would think TV shows are better than ever. While this is true for some of the very best television has to offer, it definitely isn’t a hard rule. 2017 was a great year for many different show, but also had it’s fair share of blunders. This article will look at 10 TV shows that bombed hard in 2017 and didn’t live up to the potential their cast and crew thought they should.
Some of them failed due to bad acting or a bad script, and others because there was just nothing of substance happening on the screen. Either way, there is no doubting that these 10 shows missed their mark, despite all the money and time put into them.
Netflix is normally at the top of their game and are often releasing some of the best content on TV. However, with Girlboss, they might have their first ever truly terrible show. The show was trying to say and do a lot, but it missed the mark over and over again. Britt Robertson is a talented actress and did her best, but the writing made her character far too annoying and abrasive to ever relate to. Netflix thought people would root for the main character, but instead of caring about her development, they simply rooted against her. The show was a giant waste of talent and has been cancelled after its inaugural season.
