How far into Parks and Rec did you get?
Think the end of season 4.

When I was in my pre-teens I used to religiously watch a ton of crime procedurals on networks- Law & Order, CSI etc. Now I steer clear of those (for the most part) in favor of more serialized shows.

I dropped it in 5. Which is amazing considering how much I initially liked it. I even liked season 1!

Not counting shows I abandoned in season 1

Luther (season 3)
Modern Family (season 5)
Secret Diary of a Call Girl (season 2)
True Detective (season 2)
Castle (season 2)
Glee (season 2)
Homeland (season 4)
The Big Bang Theory (season 5)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (season 2)

And those are only the ones I've definitely dropped, I'm not counting stuff like Buffy which I do intend to finish at some point (I stopped early in season 4). I'm a bit of a completionist, I even stuck with Dexter through the end just because of my deep affection for the first two seasons (and I even liked season 5, kinda, not anything after that though).

I'm curious about people abandoning The Wire in the middle of season 3, that's such a great season !
