For a year that ended with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announcing they are having a child together, to declare 2012 the Year of the Letdown would be nothing short of an understatement. (Especially for the Royal Fetus and Jessica Simpson's latest long-gestating pregnancy, who had their thunder completely stolen by Baby Kimye.)
With every bit of entertainment greatness that surpassed our wildest expectations in 2012, like the crowd-and-critic-pleasing hit The Avengers or the water cooler-friendly second season of Emmy darling Homeland, there was a bevy of disappointing and ultimately needless remakes and reboots like Dark Shadows (why do we keep letting once-great teaming of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton do this to us?) and Total Recall. Then there was hyped-up television events like the ""return"" of Britney Spears on The X Factor or the Desperate Housewives for a new era that never was, GCB. And don't even get us started on the ever-revolving and eye-rolling love life of Taylor Swift.
It's with a heavy heart we admit that movies like Prometheus or stars like Taylor Kitsch let us down, because we were rooting for them so in 2012.
