Here, you can talk about all the screw ups made by television networks, showrunners, producers, etc... whether it be a terrible storyline and/or character, or a cancellation that should have never occurred.
CURRENT PROJECTS Tomb Raider | Screenwriters Paradise
CURRENTLY WRITING Screenwriters Paradise - 2x01 - "Back In Business" Tomb Raider - 1x06 - "Sujatyam-Amalam"
Also, the cancellation of Firefly. Even FOX said they regret it. Douche bags, all of them.
FOX cancels EVERYTHING. When FOX decided that Dollhouse should keep from overlapping storylines, and just consist of one-shots for its first season. Because THAT was gonna pull in the ratings. Dumbasses.

I also think the Big Bang Theory is cute in theory, but poorly executed. They have a terrible misconception of nerds and tend to go to the extreme of it. It makes me extra offended being a nerd myself. WE DO NOT ACT LIKE THAT! XD But that is a minor pet peeve.... They don't research stuff before they make shows about it.

I actually got mad at the writers for Firefly for a very specific episode. When they went to that place where all the women who were not licensed: "Companions," and Inara called them: "Whores." It made me really dislike her as a character. They have the same exact jobs as Inara, but one just has a license to do it and the other does not. I thought that was a sad day in her character for me. That she would think of people like that, and also how no one addressed it and put her in her damn place. It's probably not a mistake in people's eyes, but I felt it was for me personally. Made me re-think who she is as a character and have little respect for her afterwards.
