These people are still angry about plots in TV shows which ended years ago
And reading their angst takes you right back to the moment their favoured programme jumped the shark.
It may be more than 10 years since Friends last aired but there’s still a lot of anguish about one storyline.
For Twitter user Juliet Mushens, the Rachel/Joey romance which stopped almost as soon as it started tops the bill of TV show plots she’s still angry about.
She shared her annoyance on the social network inviting others to add which storylines still riled them, years after the show aired.
Name the TV show plot line that you're still angry about. Mine? Rachel/Joey.— Juliet Mushens (@mushenska) August 7, 2017
And people got really vocal, with lots of angry face emoji and shouty tweets in CAPITAL LETTERS. (Note, there might be some spoilers, if you haven’t watched the shows.)
The whole thread served as a place for people to vent on unbelievable plots in Buffy, Gilmore Girls, The West Wing and more.
It was more than some people could take.
This is a great thread even though it's increasing my blood pressure with the anger 👇🏾 https://t.co/wNXrYZZsXL— Shirley (@skmukisa) August 8, 2017
And people were regularly dissing entire series of popular shows, especially Lost.
Lost. That's it. The entire thing. https://t.co/ZzAE22LDzO— Jamie McKelvie (@McKelvie) August 8, 2017
And dissecting storylines with intent you imagine is reserved for the writers’ room and continuity editing.
The West Wing was getting its fair share of grief, because good guy Toby would *never* have leaked the info about the missile.

The recent Gilmore Girls revival also spawned a backlash.

That one gets me too. And the ending of the Gilmore Girls revival. So wrong, I was fuming.— Laura 📚 (@RebelOtter) August 7, 2017
Oh I hear you. Still annoyed about most of the GG revival decisions. Lorelai and Rory slagging off Stars Hollowers at the pool - WHAT??— Miranda Dickinson (@wurdsmyth) August 7, 2017
And there was a special sub-section for people angry about a whole lot of different aspects of How I Met Your Mother.
The last season of HIMYM. What a waste of everyone's time. I would rather that we'd NEVER found out who she was.— Laura🔪 (@auralerb) August 8, 2017
Barney and Robin. We didn't want it, then they spent so long building it and we loved it and then they just took it away for nothing.— Josh More (@Josh_More) August 7, 2017

Ted is also the worst, why make him an awesome wife only to kill her off!?! AND ruin Barney/Robin in the process pic.twitter.com/tWJxrKzaBs— Stephanie ✨ (@StephanieDJL) August 8, 2017
People lamented the death of Omar and Stringer Bell in The Wire and Debs falling in love with killer Dexter in Dexter.
Other shows working people into a rant were The Simpsons, Ally McBeal, Sex And The City, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, Glee and even EastEnders. Older shows like Roseanne also made an appearance. It went off air in 1997.
Fans hold grudges, it seems, and have an excellent memory.
