    There are a number of tv shows out there, many which have ran for decades and some which, although relatively new, have a huge following. I have a very specific taste and don't run with the crowd on most things - so I haven't watched many of the huge tv shows out there, which surprises many of my friends.

    What big or well known tv shows have you never watched? Maybe you started watching and gave up? Maybe it just didn't interest you? I've made a list below, but feel free to suggest your own!

    The funny thing for me is when people insist "oh, you'll love that"--usually uttered by people who haven't got a clue what I like. Or the generalizations people make about genre: if you liked X which is a soap opera, you must have also loved Y which is a soap opera.

    I agree with that, but not every soap opera is going to be the best soap opera.

    Of the options, I've never seen more than 10 minutes of Breaking Bad, Buffy, Star Trek, Dr Who and I Love Lucy.

    There are several more popular series I've never seen, or only seen a few minutes of. The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, The Wire, Treme, The Crown, The Shield etc etc.

    From the list, I've never watched a moment of Game Of Thrones, Breaking Bad or I Love Lucy, with a further eight series that I've only seen in passing.



    I've never seen any of these either.

    I've never seen CSI, 24 or West Wing (I think I should have watched West Wing)

    From the list my choices were Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Big Bang Theory. I actually sampled Breaking bad and did not care for it, and the same is true of The Big Bang Theory. Sitcoms are the most difficult for me to get into: very rarely do they match my sense of humour. I am also unlikely to watch series with stand-alone episodes or procedurals, so I never sampled CSI, Law & Order, and their many permutations and clones.
    The only show I think I would like (because I loved the book and film) is Friday Night Lights, but somehow I never added it to my schedule. And there are some shows I regret giving them a whole season--more recently, the abysmal Westworld.

    Out of the shows listed I have never watched: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Seinfeld, Doctor Who, MASH, The Sopranos and The Big Bang Theory.
    I guess this just goes to prove that I am not very big on modern shows. :lol:

    Moreover I have only watched an episode or two of: The Simpsons, The X-files, I love Lucy and Star Trek.

    But I am a fan of Dallas, Dynasty and Buffy. So I have watched those shows several times. I am not really a fan of Friends but I love it and have watched it several times too and visited some of the filming locations. So it's among my top ten favorite shows. :)

    As a teen and early in college I always "had something to watch" (at least one or two shows) every night of the week. Nowadays I could count my "appointment TV" programs for the week on one hand and have fingers left over.

    I did get to see one episode of Game of Thrones while on a business trip--the hotel had HBO. They must buy their fake blood in 55-gallon drums. Of course it made no sense because you can't just 'drop in' a show like that.

    The only two I've never seen an episode of is Breaking Bad and Buffy. I did see the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie with Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry. I have nothing against either of these shows but never found the time to watch, yet.

    IMHO the tv show was much better than the movie.

    I sometimes think I'm the only person in the world never to have watched a single episode of Friends. I've also never watched Buffy, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones.

    Other popular shows I've never seen include Inspector Morse, Hollyoaks, Prime Suspect, Dad's Army, Sex and The City and every Star Trek other than the original series.

    The best title from the poll list (and Dallas and Dynasty of course).

    When I was a kid, I loved Star Trek and we would play-act it with a friend who also watched it (I was Spock, FYI). But when I saw it as an adult...
