BDE: Big Dud Episode

That one episode in any visual media that even the most loyal fans find disappointment and contempt for.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Some TV series are great. Some aren't so great. Some web videos are great. Some aren't so great. What really determines how good a series is (bar Screwed by the Network syndrome), is how many Big Dud Episodes it has.

A Big Dud Episode is that one episode where even the most loyal fans can't see past the disappointment and lapse in quality, even with the highest grade rose-colored glasses.

    There's a reason why Audience Reactions are discouraged from YKTTW. Not only is this Not A Trope, but it's enough Flame Bait to start a million edit wars.

    Judging by the above red link, we do NOT have this already (or no longer have it). But I concur that this will just invite trouble, unless there are unquestionable BDE's. Even then, I wouldn't be surprised someone somewhere will complain that they like said episode for some reason.

    Well, just figured this would fall into the same area as "Crowning Moment of Awesome", "Nightmare Fuel", and such.
