That's not what he's saying. He's saying that he's hoped to enjoy things before but had to admit they were bad. Once I admit that, I stop watching (ei: Voyager). But I give things time. If I see potential, I wait to see if said potential will ever be realized. To me this series has potential, and I won't declare it bad until I've spent enough time with it to get a feel of what it is and where it's going.
