Worst Episodes of Good TV Series


The Top Ten

1 A Pal for Gary - SpongeBob SquarePants

This was the reason I stopped watching new sponge bob episodes for five years, until the second movie made me forgive them.

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

The episode with Lady Gaga was worse - ZootopiaFan

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 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

8 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

9 Life of Brian - Family Guy

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

Not a good show. - 445956

10 Sun Scream - The Powerpuff Girls

The Newcomers

? Duet - The Flash
? The Man Who Saved Central City - The Flash

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 Arnold Betrays Iggy - Hey Arnold

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

14 Seahorse Seashell Party - Family Guy
15 The Skank Reflex Analysis - The Big Bang Theory
16 No Such Luck - The Loud House No Such Luck - The Loud House

This episode sucked, Lincoln’s Family were down right terrible in this episode, they were at their worst in this episode I mean kicking your own brother out of the house just because of one single game that you lost. Not cool, Lynn, absolutely not cool, you sore loser!

17 Atlantis Squarepantis - SpongeBob SquarePants

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

OK until he popped the bubble.

18 The One When Ross and Rachel Break Up - Friends
19 Stanley's Cup - South Park
20 Everyone Knows It's Bendy - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

This, along with the Ben 10 Omniverse Season 6 Premiere will be punishment for those who lie to me. - LeetHaterz

21 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

22 Demolition Doofus - SpongeBob SquarePants
23 Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy - The Simpsons

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

24 Dead Weight - The Walking Dead
25 Fly - Breaking Bad

Almost stopped watching the series after this episode it was that bad. They obviously wanted to maximize profits for this one. Why was walt so obsessed with that fly anyway!?

26 Stuck In the Wringer - SpongeBob SquarePants Stuck In the Wringer - SpongeBob SquarePants
27 And Then There Were None & And Then There Was Ben - Ben 10: Omniverse
28 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

Since when was Spongebob a GOOD T.V. series? - PositronWildhawk

29 The Final Wreck-ening - Total Drama: All Stars

The season was a dud, but this episode was the worst of them all. - Turkeyasylum

30 Going to America - Father Ted

What? This was a great episode! - aldwych94

31 Deep Space Homer - The Simpsons

Who added this?!?! This was a GREAT ONE! - PositronWildhawk

This might be my favorite episode.

32 Fresh Heir - Family Guy
33 I Only Have Surprise for You - Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
34 My Night to Remember - Scrubs
35 All Singing, All Dancing - The Simpsons
36 Hawkeye - M*A*S*H
37 With Friends Like These - Rocko's Modern Life

More like "With Episodes Like This" - xandermartin98

38 Not Without My Anus - South Park

I disagree with you. This episode is amazing!

39 In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela - Futurama

That was actually funny.

40 Whobob Whatpants - SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob was insulted by his friends in this eposide

41 The Rings of Akhaten - Doctor Who
42 I'm With Stupid - SpongeBob SquarePants

I would have voted for SpongeBob You're Fired, but that is from season 9, when the show had jumped the shark. This episode showed Patrick to be wildly out-of-character and it was overall too mean-spirited. - Garythesnail

43 Hypno-Puppy Luv - Rocko's Modern Life

This is way worse than With Friends Like These. Just saying. - xandermartin98

44 Do or Diaper - Regular Show
45 The Titanium Ninja - Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu

I refuse to watch this episode.

Saddest episode in ninjago. But they bought Zane back in the touranemt of elements

46 It's a Wishful Life - The Fairly Odd Parents
47 Delivery of Destiny - Phineas and Ferb

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

48 Ren Seeks Help - Ren & Stimpy

I haven’t seen it but I heard this is vile repulsive trash i’ve Horrid images from it like REN bullying a frog to the point of suicide Felidae scares me less then this episode. Sorry for being overally dramatic Maybe I should see it before reviewing but what i’ve Heard about it got me my vote

49 The Play's the Thing - SpongeBob SquarePants
50 Marooned - Red Dwarf
