"They have clearly lost it. Lousy shows, lousy stories." — Ana Eugenia Martinez

"Kill Bones dead, dead, dead. Even though I still watch it, it hasn't been very good for at least two seasons. Not sure why I have bothered with it since they screwed up Zack's character." — easygordon

Gossip Girl

"The show lost its magic when [the characters] graduated high school. They started out doing adult things in high school looking cool, but now that they are in college, graduated or getting married and still doing these things, they just look immature." — Timothy Pratt

"I loved the show for so long. But it's time for it to go. I mean when you spend most of the episode looking at Sam's sideburns anyway..." — jetermeter

"90210 and Gossip Girl need to wrap up their stories. I watch both and have been fans of them but they've been recycling some of their storylines for years." — bluelp85
