ENTER! Scifi Av Contest: Jump the Shark

This week's contest is Scifi Jump the Shark: when your favorite scifi/fantasy/horror TV series or movie/movie franchise jumped the proverbial shark. Did a dull season 2 actually kill the Walking Dead for you? Did the Winchesters come back from the dead once too often? Did the Degree ads eliminate Eureka from your viewing schedule? Did Phantom Menace make you put your Star Wars collection on a funeral pyre? Or maybe Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was too...uh...everything that it was?

Make an av of whatever it is that made you hang your head in dismay over what was done to your favorite show/movie/character.

Standard BBS avatar rules apply. The poll will go up on Friday.

I'll start it off with my beloved Indiana Jones, nuking the fridge.

Much as I love Jeri Ryan, I have to go with the infamous Ratings Desperation Catsuit:

I think I actually liked Hawk more than Buck, but, to each his own.

The whole Searcher season 2 revamp was a bad idea, dropping Dr. Huer and all.
