By “Shark Bait”, I mean events that make you think a good show/movie/TV show is going to start sucking now.* Maybe you’ll stick around because you think the show is good and can survive this. Maybe it does, or maybe it doesn’t. Point is, what are the basic things that make you think a “jump the shark” moment is right around the corner?
*“General Jump the Shark moments” was too long and too vague.
-Whenever a kid is introduced as a main character (that wasn’t a main character before). I’m talking every genre. Thing is, it can work even if the show already has kid characters. I stopped watching Rugrats sometime after Dil was born.
I had more, but I actually forgot them.
