hikingbride :  I know so many! And it’s not just GOT, it’s basically everything. When I want to see/read a popular new release I have to stay off Facebook. One of the aunt’s friends called her out on posting spoilers and she said “well a real fan would have watched it by now anyways so that’s their fault”. This was within an hour of airing. I did watch it live so nothing was spoiled for me, but it mostly pissed me off because she’s wealthy and retired and has zero comprehension that the entire world doesn’t live like her and might have prioritized jobs, childcare, etc over a TV show no matter how much they love it. /endrant

llevinso :  there is a lot of background that you probably don’t know about the fifty shades books. and i will never read them.  they were originally written as fanfic in the twlight universe. after the stories were posted for anyone to read on the internet and got a lot of positive reviews.  the author changed the names and published the books for profit. that’s a huge no no in the fanfic world. 

at the time, i was into queer as folk fan fic, and this was all over the fanfic sites.  i never got into another universe of fanfic.

Wow, that’s so lame! Some people can’t be glued to their tv to watch things the second it comes out. I’ve also never thought any of my thoughts on a tv show/movie/book were so important they needed to be shared on social media immediately.

 ajillity81 :  Completely agree on This is Us! I enjoyed the first handful of episodes (esp the twist at the end of the first ep tying everyone together) but I just got so OVER the fact that every single episode was just a FEELINGSFEST they were trying to throw all over everyone. Like if something is trying that hard to make me cry I just shut down.

All Reality TV shows. They bore me to tears. It is just a bunch of mindless garbage. We have ended up watching less and less TV overall in the last several years.

Marvel films are sh*t, they are cheesy as hell, lack a good plot, dialogue and character development, but everyone loves them because they have cool special effects and lots of fight scenes.

I hate the Harry Potter franchise and Daenerys Targaryen. Also hate everything related to Star Wars created since 2006. And I hate Marvel.

I hate when people say something is overrated when they haven’t even watched/read it. 

I have read all of the 50 shades books and watched all breaking bad so am happy to say they I think they are both completely overrated.

Especially 50 shades. Utter rubbish. The writing is absolutely terrible. Whoever marketed that book is a genius! However, I don’t think anyone ever proof read them. 

Also, stranger things. Just don’t get the hype.

I held out as long as I could on GOT because I thought it would bore me to tears. My husband kept pestering me to watch it and I agreed to start it once they announced the final series premiere date. Yeah, I binged the first 7 seasons in a little over a month 😂

TV shows that make me go meh: The Office, Seinfeld, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead (how can anyone stand that noise they make?!?!), The Big Bang Theory, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

DrAtkins :  THANK YOU!! Harry Potter is awful. The writing is lackluster, the plot is uninspired and the holes are maddening. Also the fact that Rowling keeps retconning everything and everyone in the story to appeal to the masses is eyeroll worthy.

I read them all as a child and they were just okay, but I never understood my generation’s absolute obsession with it. I was meh about the series until I got to college when I shit you not, people would introduce themselves and include their Hogwarts house, or even better, the mix of houses they were. After that I grew to absolutely DESPISE the entire series.

I do really love the JK Rowling memes that have popped up though.

Also, I’m gonna come out and say it: The Office is not funny.

I don’t like Top Gun. My husband almost broke up with me over this! In my defense I didn’t see it until I was in my mid-30’s, we watched it together and I was like  “that is just so bad and cheesy” He was horrified! Maybe if I saw it in its prime I would like it? Anyway, I haven’t seen some of his other favorite movies becuase he is scared to show them to me after the Top Gun disaster!

megm1099 :  Daenerys is the WORST leader. I don’t know what people are thinking when they want to see her on the Iron Throne at the end. Like her only leadership strategy is “look at me, I have dragons, if you don’t want to be actively on fire then do what I say.” If she didn’t have them she’d have nothing.
