TV Shows/Movies that should of stopped while they were ahead....by raznarukus | created - 21 Sep 2011 | updated - 21 Sep 2011 | Public
So this is a list IMO of shows that just went downhill after being brilliant or never needed a SEQUEL. There is NO ORDER I am just going to put them up as I can think of them. Granted there are many tv shows that were great for seasons and then drug out till they died.(ie. Rosanne, Full House, Home Improvement..)
