This section is dedicated to those BLs and gay series and movies that did not live up to some magical standard of what is ‘good’. I know that is subjective but now that this overall site has been operational for a while, there is a certain minimal standard to being entertained or feeling satisfied with what I think its objective, message, or theme was. In addition, the need to review its production worth must also now be taken into consideration as well. I am of the opinion that you can do a lot with a little as we have also seen that having a lot does not mean necessarily doing a lot. I expect no one will agree with my list of Bl series or movies for each year that made the Bathos List.
In addition, I shall have an ongoing list of DUDS that just did not make it to the promised land and fell short of expectations, yet something still made them a bit salvageable. They may or may not end up on the Bomb List at the end of the year. Again, all of that is so subjective, I know. But that is the point to this. I want to make you think, and therefore define what are your best and worst lists.
Of these, 8 are Thai, 2 from Japan, I from Hong Kong and 1 from South Korea. What made them awful is mainly the story telling or lack thereof. Usually revolving around the tropes, clichés, and noncommunication issues that run the gamut in these series. Some also had mediocre acting that must now be called out. The number 1 choice*, however, is in a whole new category. That is the scariest to me.
