Worst Episodes of Good TV Series


The Top Ten

1 A Pal for Gary - SpongeBob SquarePants

Why does Spongebob yells at Gary for no reason.

I don't think adding a bad episode from modern spongebob is fair - SBells27

This has to e the worst SpongeBob episode of all time because he was mean to his pet and never apologized or learned lessons.

2 Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase - The Simpsons

Just plain peculiar and made no sense. Why the hell are they all dressed as beavers, and why did the producers even think of airing it?!?! Undoubtedly the worst episode ever; if someone offers to watch it, or if it appears in your T.V. guide, run away screaming. - PositronWildhawk

3 One Coarse Meal - SpongeBob SquarePants

The absolute worst episode of SpongeBob SquarePants, Mr. Krabs was so mean, he purposely scared Plankton to the point that he was about to commit suicide, Suicide is the worst thing that could ever happen anywhere, and they put that in SpongeBob, The show should've been cancelled after that episode. - nelsonerica

This and boys of bummer should be in top 3

Season 7 of SpongeBob cannot be counted as a good T.V. series, it's atrocious! - BlueSheepYT

4 Duct Soup - Red Dwarf

I'm taking this to represent pretty much all of Red Dwarf VII & VI, Duct Soup was certainly one of the lowest of the low.

5 Night of The Nearly Dead - Father Ted
6 Lisa Goes Gaga - The Simpsons
7 The Pulled Groin Extrapolation - The Big Bang Theory

What's this episode supposed to show?!?! What's funny?!?! People like this episode because they're easily amused. - PositronWildhawk

8 Life of Brian - Family Guy

Killing of one of the main characters is terrible. - quizmint

Not a good show. - 445956

9 Sun Scream - The Powerpuff Girls
10 Arnold Betrays Iggy - Hey Arnold

We have to put this higher, watching this made me depressed. - BlueSheepYT

The Contenders

11 The Foretelling - Blackadder
12 Large Marge - The Simpsons

This episode is just plain sexist - PositronWildhawk

How does marge's boobs became bigger?

13 Seahorse Seashell Party - Family Guy
14 Atlantis Squarepantis - SpongeBob SquarePants

It ruined the whole conception of Atlantis, and it copied Willy Wonka. - nelsonerica

15 The Skank Reflex Analysis - The Big Bang Theory
16 Stanley's Cup - South Park
17 The Lost Sister - Stranger Things

It was confusing, the characters had no character development, it ruined the momentum that the season had, it was predictable, and it all didn't even matter. But it was an episode about Eleven, her goth look is pretty cool, and it's Stranger Things, so I'll at least give them that. - The01Bro

18 The One When Ross and Rachel Break Up - Friends
19 No Such Luck - The Loud House No Such Luck - The Loud House
20 Demolition Doofus - SpongeBob SquarePants
21 Dead Weight - The Walking Dead
22 Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy - The Simpsons

Get it off! This is one of the best! And one of my favorites - RickyReeves

23 The Boys Of Bummer - The Simpsons

Well since no one put this one here yet I just went and did it.

I don't think putting a bad episode from the modern simpsons is fair - SBells27

This needs to be #1 - RalphBob

24 Stuck In the Wringer - SpongeBob SquarePants
25 Everyone Knows It's Bendy - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
26 Going to America - Father Ted

What? This was a great episode! - aldwych94

27 Face Frezze - SpongeBob

All of modern SpongeBob episodes are horrible. everyone should know that! It's not a broad statement, it is a straight up fact. go check them out for yourself and see what I mean.

Post-movie SpongeBob is not a good show. Pre-movie is. So unless you want to put I'm With Stupid on here, no episodes really fit this description. - Garythesnail

SpongeBob was good before the 1st movie came out, no its going downhill. I still like the show though. - EpicJake

This is the most annoying, plotless, and completely unneeded episode of the whole show. - LarkwingFlight

46 The Play's the Thing - SpongeBob SquarePants
47 Marooned - Red Dwarf
48 Open House - Breaking Bad

It's one of the worst Simpsons episodes ever, without a question. But the Spin-Off Showcase takes some beating.
