Hype & Expectations with Movies and TV

Often we find so many movies and television shows get so much hype that even if the film/show is amazing it falls short of the hype. It appears Joker, much like Avatar in the past has had that effect on the viewers. Now this isn’t always the case as in “The Dark Knight” or it obviously comes down to the personal opinions. For this reason of hype and expectations I have never seen Avatar, Breaking Bad or the Walking Dead as it has been so hyped up it feels like it cannot possibly live up to the exceptions of the shows. Does hype and exceptions play a role in your decision to see or avoid a movie or show? Does it impact your feelings of it afterwards? I would love to know
