    A particularly bad variety of episode is the "it was all a dream" or "none of it actually happened" type of episode. Voyager had a lot of these, some of them were done cleverly enough, but others were lazy wastes of time.

    DS9 also had a bad habit of torturing O'Brien all the time.

    any jar jar episode of clone wars, and most padme episodes of clone wars.

    the padme AND jar jar together episodes, fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

    star wars resistance also kind of turned lame about midway through the 2nd season (the show was fine, and not as driven towards kids as you think)

    the episodes of walking dead where there's like one zombie in the entire hour, those suck too.

    Kill the Moom from Doctor Who makes me want to vomit. It has so much terrible science, a terrible child actor, awful morals and its not even scary or fun.

    Ill be honest that entire episode was so generic with its overused story, Warrior teaching villages how to fight etc. I forgotten alot of stuff around the parts that stood out to me! But the parts that stood out i fucking loved.

    So i never really registered much about her.

    That's kind of the point of the whole series. It's a rehash of old cowboy stories/tropes.

    The final episode of How I Met Your Mother, really the final season is all terrible but the final episode broke me. I use to love the show catching reruns on my days off or if I was off during the time-slot. I liked the characters and it was a legitimately funny show. Then the final episode happened and it just kicked fans in the balls with how bullshit it was. Through the series we find that Ted and Robin are really a bad couple, they just didn't work together like at all. Then Robin finds Barney and they were legitimately a really good couple and I liked them. Then the final episode happens and almost immediately they jump ahead a few years and Robin and Barney are divorced. Which I didn't like but it can happen even to strong couples. Then the titular Mother is killed off in the final episode with probably cancer but that isn't even the worst. Bob Saget voiced Ted finishes telling his kids how he met their mother and they tell him he really wants to bone their aunt Robin and they are cool with it. That pissed me right the fuck off with how stupid it was. Supposedly they filmed the scene with the kids back in season 2 but the characters had changed throughout and Ted and Robin were absolutely horrible together. That final episode has completely ruined the series for me to the point that I have never watched an episode again. Which sucks because again I loved the show but I just can't stomach watching the show again.

    The fallout from the final episode was so bad that they cancelled the spinoff called "How I Met Your Father" which was theorized to be about the girl Barney knocked up on the last day of his 13 day one night stand marathon in the final episode.

    Ya O'Brien was generally the one who got imprisoned or tortured throughout the series kind of like how all the aliens beat up Worf to show how tough they were. DS9 is still my absolute favorite Star Trek series and Sisko is best Captain.

    Plenty of bad episodes in Korra though, true enough. Which was a shame, I really like Korra the character.
    I actually really liked the recap episode in Book 3 because it was hilarious especially Toph's double the giant with sonic belches. Season 2 of Korra was overall a really bad season because I hated how stupid she was with believing and following her obviously evil uncle. Then while the episode about the first Avatar was objectively a good episode and probably the best of the season I still hated the episode because it completely retconned how bending came to be. In Last Airbender we learned bending was learned from creatures and things in nature fire bending from dragons, water bending from the moon, earth bending from badger moles, and air bending from air bisons. Much like a number of Chinese martial arts forms are based on animals. Then Korra came along and we learn bending actually is just something giant magic lion turtles hand out like door prizes to humans and they instantly can use bending. It just killed the mysticism of bending that Last Airbender gave us kind of like Midichlorians in the Star Wars prequels ruin the mysticism of the Force.

    How about the one where everyone on Voyager is slowly dying and right at the end we find out they're just slime copies that were always fated to die and they all just disintegrate moments before they can contact the real Voyager so nobody every knows they existed besides an afterthought log of some space debris.

    It was spread across two episodes, but in Carnivale (a hidden great show, seriously just incredible) there was a plot that goes like this:

    "Later, driving the ranch roads around Ingram, Ben is stopped by a tree on the road and discovers a nightmarish camp. Positioned throughout are strange and decrepit artefacts-mangled mannequins, parcels of insects, and literature about artificial human eyes. Searching, he trips a crude alarm and is quickly set upon by stooped men, howling like monkeys.

    Ben is viciously flogged, and buried alive, while two tattered women go through his possessions and divide them up."

    Next episode:

    "Still bound, Ben is led by his captors, but the brutal treatment has eased. Only Lee still feels compelled to abuse him. Reaching a decrepit old house, the men approach a more senior man on the porch and show him the watch fob they have taken from Ben. As Ben waits, surrounded by filth and the stench of cats, he hears Lee's screams from upstairs. Soon, his tormentor comes down, crying and clutching his mouth. His lips are sewn together. Next it's Ben's turn, and he is thrown into a room and locked in. Turning in the dark and sordid quarters, he sees ghoulish pictures on the wall. One old hag introduces herself. "I'm your grandma," she says. She tells Ben that the men downstairs are his cousins and that they want him dead, but she is clearly entranced by him, petting and embracing her grandson."

    The summary ends there but it just gets weirder from there. The show was incredible but every once in a while the creator just got way too weird for his own good.

    What I hated the most was the breaking of the Avatar cycle. One of the cool things I loved about TLA was times when we'd see Roku or any of the past Avatars. LoK we get to meet Aang once, then the cycle is totally destroyed. We'll never see any of the past Avatars and we don't even find any closure in what happened to them. Did they all permanently die for real?

    While it did divert from what TLA painted bending out to be, I don't think it exactly retconned anything. In TLA, you learn that the power of the elements is given by the turtle. You later see how Wan learns from the Dragon a proper style, and outclasses the other 'fire tossers' expertly.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was same with other elements. They have control of the elements, but they aren't bending it as we know - these all came later and became established during TLA.

    However, it was quite jarring at first and took me a few watches to interpret it that way. That being said - this is just my interpretation of the show, not sure if it's all confirmed, but it does look like that to me, no?

    What I hated the most was the breaking of the Avatar cycle. One of the cool things I loved about TLA was times when we'd see Roku or any of the past Avatars.

    Yes, the first Avatar cycle died with Korra, and the second began with Korra after the Harmonic Convergence.

    I think it was said that the choice to break the cycle was to further make a point of how Korra is not essentially the same story as Aang's, but a new story of its own. The point was first made by Tenzin during the Fog of Lost Souls, where he repeated the mantra 'I am not a reflection of my father, I am Tenzin.' that really just says Korra is not the same story as Aang. Korra is Korra. We had previous avatars in book 1 (Aang) and book 2 (other Avatars, briefly in Beginnings). I don't think we needed more, because we should've focused on Korra. Besides, we got the very -first- Avatar.

    They are gone, yes. But their stories aren't - there's short stories available about the other Avatars, comics and so on.

    Any episode of TNG featuring "The Traveler." Creepy and probably a pedophile.

    The entire last season of Parks and Rec.
    The episode of the mandolorian where he tries to live peacefully on a farm. Almost quit watching, then Bill Burr and that crazy twilek (much better female character than gina carano)saved it.

    Any episode of The Clone Wars with Ahsoka in it.
