The Moment Our Favorite Television Shows Jumped The Shark | Ep 268

Jumping the shark is a term that has been around for decades. Originating in the fifth season premiere of Happy Days, where the character of Fonzie water skis and literally jumps over a shark, the term has come to define that moment of ludicrous insanity where a TV show takes a turn it can never recover from.

For this episode, we take a look at when some of our favorite television shows made that turn. Some might surprise you, while others you will see coming a mile away. It’s a fun discussion on a topic that never seems to go out of style.
