Hook coming on to OUAT was THE WORST

Yeah, I literally stopped watching shortly after he came. Just didn't care anymore, got boring.

Came in here to say that. Didn’t even look further on the list after that terrible first take.

He was a good villain and should have gone when his initial arc ended. Then it became the Hook show and characters were literally killed off to make space for him. Awful.

I didn’t actually appreciate Lila in umbrella academy. I don’t think it hurt the show but I also don’t think it helped especially given how s2 ended like it added nothing imo
It would’ve been more fun to see more Diego with Luther being big ol dummies and 5 mocking them

Or maybe I just don’t appreciate any woman even fictional close to my husband David Castañeda

Also i didn’t make it until then but of course teen wolf got rid off Kira typical

I liked Lila but hated the romance between her and Diego. I wish they kept that playful bickering platonic

I did not think Juliet hurt Lost.

Daario is a huge book character in aoiaf, I do not think they needed to omit him.

I think Juliet is my favorite character from Lost, so fuck them

I agree that Erica and Robyn were great additions to Stranger Things.

Malia was actually a fantastic addition to Teen Wolf - she was interesting and her having to figure out just how to be a human again after spending so much time without being one was fun. She had great humor and her character had bite. I also didn't mind her with Stiles

it's AFTER they broke that couple up so Stydia could happen that Malia fell apart and I rebuke this idea that she is a love of Scott's life when we have Kira and Derek and Stiles and Isaac instead

My boy Scott might be my Beacon Hills bicycle, but Malia is truly, truly the last person I could believe as the love of his life.

Scott is TOTALLY the show's bicycle, if only someone would clue in the bulk of the fandom who instead prefer Stiles for some unknown reason that OFC isn't racism

I agree with a lot of what you wrote, and i really liked her, but Malia should have been with no one. She needed to be in therapy, and like they said up there, having the maturity of a child. Her having a relationship was ridiculous and made NO sense, and I really didn’t enjoy watching it. I wouldn’t have minded her in the future i with Stiles, but right off the bat, them having their first time in an asylum? Gimme a break.

I would have wanted to see more of her relationships with the others. Lydia and Kira in particular (i love friendships!), but the showrunners ran the show to the ground the last two seasons (or more). You know what also could have been interesting? More about her and Peter, or what it means to be a different shifter, like how is that decided... but again, the lore of the show was also ridiculous.
