These shows are so bad that they’re bad

Everyone loves a good trainwreck. When something is so bad that you can’t help but watch. Often, movies and TV shows have this effect, when a plot point is so bad, or a character does or says something so weird that we can’t help but laugh and keep watching. If you want something to make fun of with friends, or just have a good laugh on your own, check out one of these. 


One of the most infamous instances of TV shows being so bad that it’s funny is “Riverdale.” When “Riverdale” came out back in 2017, it was loved by audiences everywhere. The show is a crime drama with some supernatural/horror elements. It is based off of the characters of Archie Comics, starring KJ Apa as Archie, Lilli Reinhart as Betty, and Cole Sprouse as Jughead. I’m sure that we all remember the buzz that surrounded the hit first season. Then, the second season came out. And then the third, and the fourth. 

With every new installment of the hit series, it got only worse and worse. Riddled with cringe-worthy dialogue, a bizarre and inconsistent plot, and laughable musical episodes, “Riverdale” has become a joke. But with iconically awful lines such as “I dropped out in the fourth grade to run drugs” some watchers can’t help but look away. “Riverdale’s” seventh and final season will be coming out this year, so be sure to catch it! 


A well-known movie example of this is the Twilight series. Based off of the hit book series of the same name, the movie adaptations fell flat. Starring Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, Twilight follows a young girl (Bella) as she falls in love with a vampire (Edward). The reason why Twilight is so laughable is because of the acting, cinematography, and the crazy plot. When Twilight first came out back in 2009, it was given a lot of hate. But now, 15 years later, it is an unintentionally funny watch. The acting performances in Twilight have been widely ridiculed, especially Kristen Stewart’s. The movies have spurred TikTok trends, in which creators recreate certain scenes and exaggerate the already bad performances.

A few more quick-fire examples to enjoy: “Glee,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Teen Wolf,” “Zombies,” “Green Lantern,” “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “Scream Queens,” “Free Rein,” “Supernatural,” and “Flash/Super Girl.”
