It got six seasons and it ended on its own terms even after ABC begged them to keep it going for another like three years. Lost went out on basically at the top of the world.

Shows what I know. Half right though.

how about we just not have the toilet cthulhu

Honestly I'm surprised all the 'mystery box' criticisms turned out to be exactly right.

Heroes was more turbofucked by the writer's strike iirc, but then even after they had no excuse was still a dumpster fire.

Heroes was always bad but that's a topic for another thread (That thread would be "Heroes: It Sucked" or "Heroes: They Named the Japanese Hero Hiro, That's What We're Dealing With")

Heroes got really bad really fast. The first season was fun, but it spiraled way out of control with the dumb circus villains.

The writer's strike hosed it over a fair bit, but honestly all I think it did was expose the cracks a little sooner.

I actually watched Rise of Skywalker the other day and holy God that film was bad. Every single shot and sequence felt like it was playing at 1.2x speed. The loving Greg Grunberg dramatic death. Kylo saying 'ow.' Palpatine shooting lightning into the sky. I AM ALL THE JEDI. Just a horrible film.

I saw it the other day for the first time and one of the things that struck me was that the editing was completely botched in several scenes. When they have that speeder chase and everyone lamely repeats the "they can fly now?" line, I thought the scene cut away to a different one a few times because there were gaps in the scene as long as some of the ones between scenes earlier in the movie. Pretty sad that the movie is so hectic that the only thing that can slow it down is sloppy editing in what is supposed to be frenetic.

The above could have been written better but I'm no master of screenwriting jargon and I'm too tired to bother fixing it up

just like J.J. Abrams, I guess
