Television is stuffed with content these days, and the quality supports the excess. But what happens when we as an audience become hooked on a series, and it continues even after the quality and ratings drops? What happens when our favorite TV shows go on too long?

This week we dive into this very real problem of fandom: when to leave your favorite shows. With TV series staples like Walking Dead and The Simpsons seeming to live forever, at what point is it time for us to cut and run?

Also this week: reviews of Curvature and Mid90s, social media is dictating the future of TV, Pirates of the Caribbean reboots without Johnny Depp, a new game, and much more.
