Can we stop ruining television series with poor writing?

There are few things in this world that are worse than absolutely destroying a television series with poor writing. Unless you consider ruining a series with poor writing that was, up until a certain point, written exceptionally well.

I’m willing to bet just about everyone could name a series that became an unfortunate victim of shitty writing. One that comes to mind for me is The Walking Dead. I’ve mentioned that Blaine, my husband, was a fan of the show long before I was, and once we moved in together he convinced me to give it a try. I quickly became a fan, and since beginning the show in its first season, we are now approaching its conclusion and are nearing the 11th and final season.

After the ‘death’ of a major character in the ninth season (I will spare names to avoid spoiling the show for anyone), the formerly fantastic plot of The Walking Dead went downhill real quick. To be honest, I think the writers got lazy and started coming up with truly ridiculous storylines to keep the show running, but they probably should have wrapped things up after the ninth season to avoid such a depletion in the quality of the plot.

A similar situation happened with the final season of Game of Thrones. To conclude such an epic series with the shit shown in the final season was a disgrace and insulting. It was rushed, sloppy, and didn’t make a whole lot of sense, and while The Walking Dead hasn’t gotten quite as bad as the final season of Game of Thrones, it is toeing the line.

Why must wonderful television series be destroyed with shitty writing? Your fans are your income, so best not to piss them off by ruining a show they once loved with a poor excuse of a script.
