This week topic is about series that went downhill with each next release. What are the series that started out strong but went downhill as the series goes? This topic is opens for both tv shows and books, so I decided to combined both of them!
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent started out amazingly for me. I read the first book during my Christmas break, and bought Insurgent at the day it was released, which is never happened with me. The main problem isn’t the plot, is Tris as a character. I really idolised her in Divergent, she ventured out of everything she knew, she left all parts of her old life. She train so hard that she doesn’t become factionless, and even though Al tried to kill her, she still feel guilty when he died. But then in Insurgent and Allegiant, she just changed. She lied a lot, manipulated people, and just overall unlikeable. Not to mention Uriah? #neverforget
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I’m still pissed about this one, because if it was a trilogy it would be amazing but it got dragged into 6 book series 😒 It started out so good, the whole downworlder, nephilip, angel relics and a female heroine who would do anything to save her mother. Then the story become too focused in the romance, Clace become to clingy and destroys life and rules as much as they want… It just becomes too much.
Um okay I don’t really know what’s wrong with this one. I really enjoyed the first season, liked the second, and haven’t found the motivation to finish the third season. And now I heard it was cancelled after the fourth season. I guess I’m not the only one that thinks this series went downhill.
It actually one of those shows that started out badly. I mean, have you seen the first season? 😂 But it gets better with each season… until season 3. You know that finale. Alison died, one of the twins die, Isaac and papa Argent gone… and the seasons got worse. It becomes Teen Supernatural, focuses more on Stiles, who is a human, instead of Scott the supposedly True Alpha, aand the romance just isn’t the best. Season 6 is the last one so I think I’ll keep watching, but honestly, I can’t even bring myself to finish season 5.
The Vampire Diaries
I also honestly don’t know what happened in this one. I mean… my ship is finally sailing damn it! And it was the way I wanted it to happens. I feel like the plot become too much? The last time I watch, Elena was becoming a vampire, Delena sailing, there’s this Silas thingy… It became convulted and I just don’t like how the show progressed. TVD is also ending after the next season, which is season 8. It’s just sad because I used to watch this show religiously.
