Also I personally think you should watch at least five episodes of a show before judging it, but whatever.
Well I mean it's safe to assume the point of the first episode of a show is to set the tone and establish the ideals of the series to come. If I watch the first episode of House of Cards and don't care about the main story line or any of the characters it doesn't make much sense to me to watch the next 4 just in case.
IIRC this isn't true at all. This applies to a large majority of shows in their beginnings; most shows try to be network-friendly as possible. Its only after a few episodes they start to realize the extent of their limitations on television and try to push more towards what they try to aim for in their shows. I believe i remember Seth MacFarlane hating his old episodes of family guy for such reasons.
So yeah, you really shouldn't judge series by their first or so episodes. Whens the last time a person actually says their favorite episode of a series is the first three or four?

oh, i should probably say something on the topic...
Walking Dead; such boring shit, nothing happened the entire first season, i wanted people to die and slaughter zombies en masses but it didn't happen and it drove me away from even trying to watch the later seasons because it still kind of happens.
also Highschool of the dead. I had RL friends trying to get me in on watching this Anime and it ended up providing me a perfect example as to why i hate fan-service in anime
Walking Dead started off really interesting but I have no idea how they are going to end their show. They might keep it going for as long as possible but eventually people are going to lose interest.
I can't stand a vast majority of Disney shows at this point. They lost all the hidden meanings and morals they showed. For example, That So Raven, there was an episode about her weight and stated all women are beautiful, etc. What the hell happened to it?
A vast majority of Cartoon Network. They really fucked up once they cancelled a lot of shows and tried to become more of a reality tv show, like destroy build destroy. Gumball...some episodes I like, then others give me a headache. I only like AT and Regular show.
I will never EVER understand why people LOVE Honey Boo Boo. I could go on about problems I find with parenting (exposing your child to being on TV, dating a child molester, making your child go into beauty pageants) but I will rest my case on that one.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians....nuff said.
I barely turn on my TV now because there isn't much good stuff on now. All the good show like My life as a teenage robot, fairy oddparents, spongebob, danny phantom, teen titans, chowder, etc. Are all gone. Childhood over!!
1. SpongeBob (at least, the latest episodes). That show is really funny on the earlier seasons, but I stopped watching it after the latest or so, at which point it turned downhill. I still watch it once in a while when I'm bored, I just can't stand the lack of content the writers have put lately and call it a day, especially one of their movies (might be just me though). It's getting a bit long, too.
2. Might as well say The Amazing World of Gumball. I dunno, the characters are a bit goofy sometimes and their style of humor isn't always my thing.
I haven't been watching too many shows to make a full list of the ones that I dislike, but it might be kept as it is for now.
Stuff like South Park and Family Guy. I don't find it too healthy to not be able to stare at a show for a single minute without facing a sex joke or random gore (this applies to SP at least). Not to mention I can't leave the mindset that Family Guy is a Simpsons ripoff, even though I've watched few eps to have a valid opinion.
I'd say MLP, but the brony fandom has definitely died down compared to years ago. Not to mention it's probably got as many people who hate is as they do love it, which is not even close to "everyone else loves".
My real answer is going to be Attack on Titan. I cannot genuinely like it, yet almost everyone else I know tries to convince me it is a masterpiece and the best anime made in a very long time. Though maybe I just like lighthearted and comical moe too much to appreciate something like AoT these days.
I like The Amazing World of Gumball, Regular Show, and Teen Titans Go!, but sometimes the episodes are just plain stupid. One show I don't like is Adventure Time, it was a lot better the first couple of seasons, then it down hill from there. Chowder was one of my favorite shows, and one of the last good Cartoon Network shows too.
"trending" might be inaccurate since it's been over for a year but it's a great show. The writing is a little shakey at times early on but seasons 4 and 5 are absolutely amazing and the whole thing is very well acted and very well made. Why do you dislike it?
