5 Overrated TV Series That Deserve A Much Lower IMDB Rating

There are series which are great and loved by many. Then there are some which are just blindly loved and there's nothing great about them. But for one reason or the other, they get a hold of the audiences' nerve and become quite popular, despite being just an average show. 

Following are 5 such shows which got way more attention than they deserved:

1. Arrested Development

With an IMDB rating of 9, this show is supposed to be great. Not 'FRIENDS' level great, but still, great enough to get you hooked and make you laugh. After all, that is what a sitcom's primary objective is.

But it fails to even make you chuckle on most occasions. This sitcom certainly isn't funny enough to get a 9 rating on IMDB. The storyline is fine at best, the acting is passable, but at times it seems more like a drama series than a comedy.

2. 13 Reasons Why

This is one of the slowest TV series I have ever watched. I am not saying slow TV shows are bad, I am a huge fan of 'True Detective' – Season 1, but slow does not mean it can't be gripping. 

'13 Reasons Why' got by solely because of its novelty. The concept is good, but the storyline isn't. This show is like Priya Prakash Varrier, got famous for no reason whatsoever. It should have been rated around 6, instead of 8.1.

3. Daredevil – Season 1

I'm going to get a lot of heat on this one, but hear me out! I loved 'Daredevil' Season 2, thanks to the Punisher. The reason I found season 1 just average is that it lacks character development. 

When you're showing a superhero series from the scratch, it should answer the 'how & why' questions about the superhero's strengths, which it failed to do miserably.

All we see is a blind man who trained a blind kid to fight like no one else can. There is no 'how' behind this story. If you've seen the first couple of seasons of 'Arrow', you'll know what I am saying. 

From punching a guy to aiming the arrow with precision, every cool move that was shown in the 'Arrow' was associated with the background of how he learned it. That is how a good superhero series should be. You shouldn't leave the character development to the audiences' imagination.

4. Parks and Recreations

I couldn't bear this one for more than a few episodes. A series with an 8.6 rating should be good since the start. But it isn't. It isn't funny, the storyline is weird, and it seems that the show was simply riding on the pivotal character of Leslie Knope, played by the delightful Amy Poehler.  

Usually, this happens after a few seasons where the network can't find a good direction to take the story forward, but still stretches the show just because of its popularity. 'Parks and Recreation' gave me that feeling in the first episode itself.

5. House of Cards

This show definitely does not deserve a 9 IMDB rating! Apart from some stellar instances of acting, the show simply doesn't have anything else to offer. The storyline isn't good, the plot is weak, and the content isn't gripping. One character alone does not make a show. After I watched the first 4 episodes, I couldn't force myself to watch anymore.

And now, with Kevin Spacey being kicked out of the show, the series has blessedly reached its finale!
