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...

Often times you learn just how creative a kid is when they're being deceitful.

Homework and assignments are going to be late sometimes.

It's a part of the school cycle.

Instead of getting miffed, take solace in the off-the-wall, nonsensical excuses students come up with.

Back in my day, that first 10 minutes of class was practically a comedy hour.

I mean talk about Oscar worthy performances...

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Industries That Are A Lot Shadier Than They Seem

There are a number of industries which, owing to business practices and perception in the media, are commonly associated as being evil.

These include nuclear power, big pharma, and healthcare, at least in the United States, while some retail services such as Amazon are notorious for the poor working conditions in their factories.

However, are any industries or businesses wholly without sin?

We might find ourselves surprised what goes on behind closed doors of industries we've come to trust as ethical and without fault.

People Divluge How They Caught Their Significant Other Cheating

There's nothing worse than finding out that your significant other had been unfaithful.

Actually, there is something worse.

That is, walking in on the person with whom you have been romantically involved engaging in sexual intercourse with someone else. In your bed.

Sound familiar?

Unfortunately for many couples, this is a reality that inevitably contributes to the demise of a relationship that was never really a healthy one to begin with.

Weddings can be a lot of things: a beautiful ceremony, the celebration of a love story, an incredibly fun party.

They can also be absolute stress fests, anticipation central, and in some cases, a lot of unnecessary pomp and circumstance.

However, all of that is to be expected. What we’re talking about today is those few weddings where everything goes wrong, secrets are revealed, or inappropriate behavior ensues. Those weddings that turn so awkward, it makes everyone cringe.

Redditors have plenty of those stories.
