You've just suffered Hype Backlash.

Usually occurs when QualityByPopularVote fails. Most often, the work isn't ''bad'' in itself and would easily have been accepted as a solid and enjoyable work by the same person under different circumstances. But few things can live up to being praised as perfect works of pure genius by lots of people for long. To someone who was expecting nothing short of a flawless masterpiece, the disappointment of ''anything'' less can be bitter indeed.

This, as well as HypeAversion, is often a result of someone who may have been burned one too many times with "Try it. You'll like it!" promises in {{real life}}. Let's face it, ''everyone'' has had one of those experiences. You probably remember as a kid being told to try something that looks and smells absolutely unappetizing at all, with the assurance that "you'll like it" by your parents/guardians, that you actually thought tasted horrible. Naturally, this happens with entertainment too. This is especially annoying since some people can be quite overzealous about recommending a show to a friend. There is nothing bad about recommending a work to a friend, but if they don't show an interest in it, then it's generally a good idea to ''back off''. Sometimes, they might actually see it not because they think it might be good, but to ''shut you up'', meaning they're already viewing it through JadeColoredGlasses.

Over-enthusiastic fans can also provoke this reaction, of course; a fan of something is always going to be particularly committed and convinced of its quality, but they can let their enthusiasm get out of hand. Often, this results when a person initially only had a mild dislike, or even just a passive disinterest, in a particular work - until over-enthusiastic fans of the work start [[FanDumb harping on and/or berating]] the person for [[ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow not enjoying]] the work as much as they do. This can often have the affect of making the person suddenly ''[[ReversePsychology hate]]'' the work that he or she previously had no strong antipathy towards.

This can also show up when, for the person disappointed by the work, something is heavily over-analyzed or praised as being [[SupposedlyRebelliousSeries more rebellious, challenging or intellectually "deep" than it is]]. It's common for people coming to something that has been praised to the moon for its iconoclastic bravery or intellectual complexity to find that what they are watching is neither as revolutionary or deep as they've been led to believe. In some cases, the revolutionary unique show you're watching was only revolutionary [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny when it was made]].
