10 TV Shows That Convinced Me They Were Going To Be Great After The Pilot And Then Came Crashing Down In The End

    Not every show can be a home run like Breaking Bad or Schitt's Creek.

    Making a TV show is not easy, and most shows take years to start production. The efforts of everyone involved in the project mean a lot of time, effort, and money being invested into making the pilot the best it can be so it can hopefully get picked up by a network.

    As a viewer, it's the bait that gets us hooked and wanting to see more of whatever hot new show has been marketed everywhere, so it can be a little disappointing when after episode one, you're wondering, "What the hell happened to the show I started watching?!"
