Did I Really Watch All Of That?

edited January 2007 in Social Entropy++
After a night of playing World of Warcraft, I was ready to sign off but not ready to sleep. Checking out what was barely on TV, I ran across this old TV show called Gunsmoke. It was a Western type of show which really isn't my thing but with nothing else but infomercials on I decided just to watch it for a few minutes and see if I'd just nod off. It wasn't till I noticed the sun shining through my room's window that I realized I'd been there glued for a couple of hours! Now whenever I'm up at that time, I always tune in to watch more Gunsmoke.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been in the same situation; dismissing a TV show because of something like it's genre or an actor/actress we normally don't like or maybe simply because it's too old-fashioned and then finding ourselves hooked on it after watching an episode or two. So who here has a show they like even though they never thought it'd be their cup of tea? Maybe even a show that'd be too embarassing to let others publiclly know you like?

    I thought this thread might have been my cup of tea, but I was horribly horribly wrong.

    I like tea, not mugs of steaming shit.

    Friday Night Lights is in my opinion the best new show this season, and I expected to hate it. I cannot convince anyone else to give it a chance though. They just think I'm a plant for NBC.

    I watched Mutant X a few times when it was on. There was one episode where a mutant had the power to make leaves fall off trees, and every time he told people they were like :| and he would be all "MAN YOU SHOULD SEE ME WHEN I'M IN THE FOREST".

    Since it's early in the morning and I'm half-asleep, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. Just in case...

    I dunno about you, but it must have some sort of guardian angel if it was crappy and still ran for twenty years.

    I understand why you would say that, but George Takei is guest starring on Heroes tomorrow. Just because I randomly post things like, "romance blossoms in the boardroom tonight on The Apprentice" doesn't mean that I don't understand that next Thursday is an all new night of comedy on NBC. If you prick me do I not mention that "Grease: You're the One that I Want" is the hottest new reality show.

    Maybe you missed the part about the football and the weasel douches. I don't have time for that kind of shit, no matter how good the writing is.

    yes, but this show doesn't fit the category, for me, because I still don't like it. And yes, I did watch an episode once out of sheer boredom.

    Guns smoke was awesome, our dad used to get us to watch it. Don't worry you are not weird.




    (IN the Biglewbowski, when John Goodman is talking about that author in the iron lung the show they are talking about is basically a reference to Gunsmoke.)

    Whenever I flip onto MTV, I usually end up watching the shittiest crap, but I can't change the channel. Like Super Sweet 16 or Exposed and junk. My fave old MTV show was Made. Oh? Dorky girl becomes a banging model? Sign me up! Oh god, why do I have the same tastes as a 14-year old girl?

    i know i should hate my super sweet sixteen, but i can't help watching it when i see it on. I think this is mainly to do with it making me feel lucky not to be as much of a twat as the girls on that show. I've also always hated doctor who but my little sister got me into watching it since David Tennant has played the doctor.

    Also, there's this new awful show on E!.

    It's called High Maintenance 90210, and it's basically a reality show about stupidly rich worthless people from Hollywood.

    This one dude hired an assistant for his wife so that she could actually stay on time and on task and clean crap up around the house, that's all.

    Instead she takes the assistant shopping, spends $20,000 on a necklace for herself and buys him (assistant) a $1000 sweatshirt, then they start drinking a lot of wine.

    Then the actually start to rearrange her closet, she folds like two shirts and starts saying "I'm tireeeedddd" then drags the assistant into the living room to watch TV, drink another bottle of wine and play pool.

    Then the husband suspects something is up and calls the assistants agency and fires him. The assistant hears and tells the wifey and the wifey says, "So you're not working for me anymore...? - Yeah, -"LETS GO TO THE BAAARRR!"
