22 Famous Franchises' Low Points

22 Famous Franchises' Low Points

It's a sad inevitability, but pretty much all our favorite franchises jump the shark -- it's a rare instance when it doesn't happen. So with that in mind, these are the moments when our favorite showrunners and filmmakers looked at all the hours we put into them, and just flipped us the middle finger.

The thing is, we think the great Gazoo in the Flintstones gets a bad rap. Was he a ridiculous character that completely shattered the premise of the series? Yes, without a doubt. However, he also had some fun one liners and a cool space helmet. Life is all about trade offs. But shark jumping is not limited to movie franchises, even video games aren’t immune. Consider the 2005 Sonic remake when he turns evil, competes in the olympics and kisses human women. Wait, that’s basically the dream. There’s more, though!

Oh yeah, and, you know, spoilers ahead. So if you’re brave enough, scroll on down and pin point the exact moment when these franchises lost their magic.
