I guess I value 2 hours of life more than you do!
Cancelling a season pass doesn't mean I can never watch it. Heck, I didn't like Mad Men after the first episode (and still don't like the first episode) but after hearing positive reviews from reviewers and people I trust I gave it another chance.
I can't just make my own decisions on every show because there is just too much stuff out there and I can't give everything a chance especially since there are really only a handful of shows I feel are worth watching.
But if a review has examples of dialogue and situations that I know are right away going to drive me bonkers, it's probably best to stay away--for now at least.
Your dance card's all filled up at 10 on a Sunday night? So, watch 15 minutes. Then you can actually decide for yourself.
