Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Ziggi28 asked the online community,

"What franchise has been milked to death?"

Teen Mom

"MTVs Teen Mom. Although they still act like teenagers, the moms are in their 30s."

FightingTheStars

Part of me thinks the only reason it's still on is because MTV knows several of the cast members have no other way to make money and they're waiting to see if any of the kids become teen parents.

All of Them

"A better question would be what franchise HASN'T been milked to death. Something like 9 out of 10 "blockbusters" these days are remakes/sequels/rehashes etc."

fenixtx423

If we have to have nonstop remakes, I wish they’d at least make good remakes of bad movies/shows that had potential but were poorly executed for whatever reason, instead of mediocre at best remakes of classics.

It's a "No" for Netflix

"Certainly nothing netflix has created. Get hooked on a show with solid potential and bam....its canceled."

Netflix’s Dark Crystal amazingly resurrected a Jim Henson masterpiece, set up an entire world to explore, and cancelled it after one season.

So frustrating.

Halloween

"Is the next Halloween really going to be the last one or no?"

IAmBotARobot

Don't forget, guys: Evil dies tonight!

We'll repeat it 10,000 times just so you know for sure.

Friday the 13th

"When Jason started killing in Manhattan, possessing people’s bodies, and killing on a futuristic spaceship in outer space, I felt the Friday the 13th series was getting a bit ridiculous. Although Jason X wasn’t that bad."

[deleted]

Honestly, the franchise died with Jason X. The remake of the first—which actually combined the plots of the first four films—was actually pretty good but didn't go anywhere after that.

Ben 10

"Ben 10. I enjoyed the first 3 shows, 4th one is mixed for me, but that 5th show which is that reboot that came after was unnecessary and just shows that Cartoon Network is reliant on making money from toy sales rather than telling a good story from that reboot."

Upstairs-Key-52

There were more than two? This is news to me.

The Walking Dead

"The Walking Dead. I stopped watching when I found myself actively hoping the protagonists would be killed in gruesome ways."

sloppyredditor

I stopped after Beth died, didn't watch it for a long time, went back to it—though I started from the beginning—and gave up right when Glen was killed. It was exhausting and a meandering mess all in all.

Jurassic World

"I just got an ad for the Jurassic World: Dominion extended edition. Pretty sure nobody has been asking for more runtime of that movie."

allofthethingsIhate

That movie had no reason to be as long as it is and Laura Dern and Sam Neil are really slumming it.

90 Day Fiancé

"90 Day Fiancé."

"There must be like 20 spinoffs from that show, including Pillow Talk (which has former cast members commenting on episodes) and then a Pillow Talk for the Pillow Talk episodes. Not to mention the individual spin offs like The Family Chantel and Darcey & Stacey."

LadyBug_0570

I can't believe this is still on. I must be dreaming.

Grey's Anatomy

"Grey's Anatomy. It’s so repetitive and just ridiculous now. I gave up in season 10, then tried again and caught up a few seasons but it’s just kind of relentless, ruins good characters and rapidly churns out new, forgettable ones."

shepherdofthewolf

This should is the definition of a soap opera. And to think it was once a big Emmy contender for a few years!

Admit it: You're so over these too, aren't you? We might as well be living in a time loop because some of these franchises keep coming back over... and over... and over...

I've always been told... NEVER SETTLE!

But settling can work out.

You never know.

So what really happened when people settled?

When I was seven-years-old, I decided to use my allowance to buy one of those disposable cameras. It was less than $10, and my life was never the same!

Since I was so young, I wasn’t allowed to use my dad’s Nikon, in case I dropped it, so I never understood the joy he got from taking pictures until I got my own camera. Once I took my first photograph, I never stopped.

Now, I’m the one who gets pictorial evidence of special events or documents family trips. I’m the one who makes sure memories are preserved, and I love it.

You never know what purchase is going to be life-changing, but chances are, something was. Usually, these life-changing purchases aren’t even that expensive.

Dating is never easy, and yet, most still do it. But we have to go through a lot of frogs to find our prince or princess.

Dating is also different for everyone. Sometimes, you meet a person you automatically feel a connection with, you go out, and by the end of the night, you know you found your soulmate. Other times, the person does or says something that makes you think, Nope!

Unfortunately, the latter seems to happen more often than not. Redditors certainly agree, as they all gathered to share their stories of first date events or behaviors that were instant deal breakers.

Times Dark Web Users Felt Like They Were Genuinely In Danger

The internet has proven a hugely advantageous advancement in technology.

Creating not only a world where we can buy just about anything with a single click, but also communicate with others all across the globe with considerable ease.

Something we were all beyond grateful for in March of 2020.

However, the internet can sadly be a dangerous endeavor, particularly the part of the internet known as "the dark web", where one's identity and locations remain anonymous.

Whether people find themselves on the dark web, primarily used for illegal, under the table operations, they often tend to find themselves in dangerous situations.

Some being far more terrifying than others.
