It’s generally accepted that shows get worse as time goes on. Eventually the writers run out of ideas and things get more and more stupid until finally the show jumps the shark. I’m watching Family Guy at the moment and it’s showing one of the older episodes (I’m assuming by the voice work and animation that it’s a first season episode) and Jesus, it sucks. Despite my desire to pretentiously hate Family Guy, it’s one of my favorite shows. But seeing these old episodes just reminds me of how much ass it used to suck.
What other shows, movies, books, etc have gotten better as time went on?
