Administrivia: Complaining About Shows You Don't Like

We understand that the TV show is begging to be mocked. Its very existence fills you with rage. How could a little venting be bad when it feels so good?

We understand how you feel. It's human nature. But it is not what the wiki is about.

Creating a trope for the sole purpose of listing shows you despise ("Moron Fodder: Shows that you'd have to have a single-digit IQ score to enjoy!") is not allowed. It's an exercise in stating subjective opinions as if they were objective facts. It's excellent kindling for an Edit War, or even a Flame War, which we really don't want.

Slipping a review into an example is also a bad idea. It just leads to natter, which leads to edit warring and other useless, off-point stuff.

If you would like to express your opinion about a work, use the Reviews section. You get to it by clicking the Reviews button at the top of any work's page.

If you come across complaining, remove it or ask for help in the forum thread dedicated to negativity removal.

The opposite of this Audience Reaction is Gushing About Shows You Like. Writer Bashing is a Sub-Trope of this. Related to Fan Haters, Hatedom, and Hate Dumb.
