Guilty pleasures

Postby Zohar » Sat Dec 15, 2007 4:54 pm UTC

We all have them. What are the bad movies you really love? How about TV shows?

For me, I think the number one guilty pleasure is America's Next Top Model. I don't watch any other reality shows (well, almost) but I follow it regularly.

Gossip Girl, although I don't really count it as a guilty pleasure anymore. The show is pretty fantastically awesome. (And although I support the writer's strike...I still wish the writers of Gossip Girl would come back to write the rest of the season. Very selfish, yes- but dammit, I want my Gossip Girl. :()

Now all that needs to be done to make the show perfect is to completely write Nate and Alison out of the show. Chuck and Blair 4eva (Lilly and Rufus too). And Serena and Dan need to get a room.

Usually, I don't like shows/movies that are based on books but are completely different from them...but I have made an exception for Gossip Girl. The show changed basically everything from the books, but honestly, I still love it.

Daredevil was only my guilty pleasure until I saw the director's cut. Then it just became a pleasure. :D

My current guilty pleasure are those direct-to-DVD American Pie movies. I don't actually pay for them, but I do watch them and enjoy them. There don't really seem to be a lot of teen comedies these days, and it's a genre I like to turn my brain off to.

There's nothing wrong with X-Factor, says I. Then I realise this is the TV board, not books.

I felt guilty watching Blue Heelers recently. Not because it was a particularly bad show, but because it was on at 2 in the afternoon.

So that Nate can star in his own show, where there's less talking and more pretty.

I read about ten Redwall books before I got bored with the repetition. Talking animals! Also, anything involving Robin Williams.

Nate is actually kind of ugly. Certainly not the lacrosse god he was made out to be in the books. And he's all emo-mopey all the time. He's on my list of permanently annoying characters, especially since he broke up the Greatest Couple That Ever Was, aka Chuck&Blair. Plus, he's boring. Really, really boring.

Awh, no, Love, Actually is a wonderful, wonderful film and should never be a source of shame. I've yet to meet a creature who didn't at least like it.

America's Next Top Model is my main one, even though I'm English. I like to tell myself that I'm just watching it because it's a show that proves how childish and bitchy models are.

I'm also not too sure if 24 is a guilty pleasure or an outright addiction :oops:

I saw the advertisement for that, and just said to myself:

"Congratulations, Mr Hicks, now *all* of your comedy is creepily still relevant"

And then I realized that wouldn't be entirely true unless Billy Ray Cyrus made a comeback.

I know! I'm so torn.... Mr Hicks is my avatar, my blog, and my friggin' hero... and I'm going to watch the one thing he hated more than all else in the great pantheon of television. My only hope is that since I'm Canadian, and I don't find the show deep and meaningful, he'll forgive me...

[country]'s Next Top Model (I watch American and Norwegian and whatever other countries get aired on Norwegian TV...lol)

Laguna Beach before, now: The Hills. I know its a "fake" reality show but it's so fun <3


Gossip Girl is amazing.. And I agree with une see, I was soo happy when Blair and Chuck hooked up and he admitted he liked her.. awww! And I cried when she got back with that loser Nate and Chuck got all hurt.. :/

I've been telling people to find me episodes of Gladiators to watch, so I was excited when I saw the call for challengers. If only my exam hadn't been that day, and I wasn't a wimp.

That'll be a really guilty pleasure when it comes on. I remember it being like power rangers, in that it gave us kids who watched it something to emulate while beating each other up.

Also, Australia's Funniest Home Videos. Used to hate it, still think it's really bad TV, but it makes me laugh.

"Ninja Warrior" on G4. If someone has cable, I will check to see if it's on. It's just too much fun.

And, if I am home on a Friday evening, I like NUMB3RS simply because of David Krumholtz.

I used to wake up every morning at 630 and watch Mighty Max and Beast Wars Transformers (Cheetor is doing mach 3... think he'll make it?), then go back to bed with a belly full of eggs and bacon and toast and come in late to school.

Haha yea! I recently bought the full season on DVD, but the qualities REAL crappy... Still, its great.

Something like:
Computer: Please say the password
Virgil: Oh dear, i'll never get this
Norman: Let me (PUNCHPUNCH) HOOO! ARGGH!
Computer: I'm sorry, HOOO ARGH is not the password.
Max: Maybe we should knock?
Virgil: Knock?
Computer: Knock knock is the password. Please enter and wipe your feet.

The original G1 transformers and other 80's cartoons. I have to be in a certain mood for that though, and only in small doses.

Ironically, I never watched the stuff when I was little as my parents didn't let me watch much television.

Gossip Girl for me too. I actually hate the books (I actually have the first six, but I really don't like them). I prefer books/movies where I'm rooting for a couple, but in the books all the couples are annoying. But I love Serena and Dan.

I still watch Pokemon when I notice it's on TV...

New favorite: Junior Defenders. An obsessed fan kidnaps the original cast of a failed teevee show to make all new episodes. Starring Ally Sheedy, Dante from Clerks, and one of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Narrated by John Waters. Rent or purchase immediately.

Almost universally loathed, but one of my all-time favorites.
My goal in life is to have money, power, fame, wisdom, and love.
So far, I've got a sense of humor.
It's a good start.
