Guilty Pleasures on the TeeVee
 
What do you watch on TV or Streaming that you're embarassed to admit?

MyOneAndOnly 12-17-2017 06:55 PM

I love the tv show "Younger"

I'll watch anything that's produced by Darren Star

i might try watching Unexpected.



I really love "The Fosters". That sappy show makes my cry all the time.

Teen Mom 2/ Teen Mom OG (it feels like I've grown up with those girls)

The Big Bang Theory (although the new seasons have kind of lost me, I still enjoy the reruns)

Family Guy (there was this awesome scene a few weeks ago were Peter is talking to himself as he's driving and he's all "Time to cue up 2 princes!" and then it starts playing. I was hoping the clip would be on Youtube so I could share it here, but no dice.)

MyOneAndOnly 12-17-2017 07:16 PM

every time i see fuzzy's stupid fucking avatar I want to delete my account here and cut my wrists

fuzzyroes 12-17-2017 07:17 PM

That's not very nice

MyOneAndOnly 12-17-2017 07:21 PM

what's terrible about you is that you think Christopher was some kind of cool character when in fact he was a stupid rat piece of shit

MyOneAndOnly 12-17-2017 07:21 PM

fucking Canuck troll!!!

fuzzyroes 12-17-2017 07:26 PM

I don't necessarily think he was cool, but he was definitely one of my favorite characters.

One of my all-time favorite Sopranos episodes was one from the last season where Tony's on this awful gambling streak. They're at some casino and Tony lays big money on a horse because the name is "Meadow Gold". They're all gathered around and cheering and the horse is winning most of the race, everyones going nuts and at the last second, horse loses. Everyone's in shock and Chris is all deadpan and says " fuck.... it lost by a cunt-hair"

Be prepared to get angry at teenagers through a screen. Especially as a mom, I find myself screaming, "Don't hold a baby like that! Newborns can't be spoiled, jackass, pick up your crying child! What do you mean you're BORED?!" and things of that ilk. It's scary because Fuzzy just said he watches Teen Mom but in this show the people aren't TRYING to be hot messes, they're just woefully ill prepared and terrible parents since they're teenagers. It's still an embarrassing guilty pleasure, not sure what point there is to defending it.

I watch 90 Day Fiance because of how much of a train wreck it is. There is something horribly wrong with every single person on that show and I hope none of them get married. Also because my mom watches it and I want her to like me.

I feel like Bromans might be the pinnacle of trash television.

ilikeplanets 12-17-2017 09:55 PM

Oh and I completely adore Workaholics. Is that embarrassing? TOO BAD. I'm not ashamed to admit that one. I was the target audience for sure.

buzzard 12-17-2017 10:07 PM

The winner gets to wheeze the juice with Pauly.

to be fair, even though it was kinda considered, he never really ratted on anybody

Future man gets the closest to being a guilty pleasure cause it's so dumb, but I did like it quite a bit more than I expected and would recommend it.

FoolofaTook 12-18-2017 06:52 AM

I would recommend perma ip banning MarquisInDades.

Turns out that wasn't the finale of Unexpected. One of the girls might be pregnant again ALREADY (the docs can't give you birth control for 6-8 weeks). Will she ever learn?? :rolleyes:

MyOneAndOnly 12-18-2017 05:54 PM

Does Crazy Ex Girlfriend count as a guilty pleasure? Or is it's masked wit too obvious and make it a bona fide quality show?

LaBelle 12-18-2017 05:57 PM

We watched an episode of Ultimate Beastmaster today on Netflix.

That is totally a guilty pleasure, it's super dumb. But at the same time what some of those people do is insane.

MyOneAndOnly 12-18-2017 05:57 PM

I have seen every episode of Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

vixnix 12-18-2017 08:01 PM

Toddlers in Tiaras and Dance Moms. They're all so crazy, I can't turn away. I binge for a week and then I realise the brain damage I am suffering and force myself to stop. It's borderline poverty porn.

ilikeplanets 12-18-2017 08:17 PM

Oh I forgot about Dance Moms. I used to torture my husband with that one. Abby Lee Miller 4 lyfe <3

ilikeplanets 12-18-2017 08:18 PM

And those moms aren't even close to poor, whatchoo talkin' about?

vixnix 12-18-2017 08:36 PM

It still watches like poverty porn - like the audience is watching a shit show they're glad to not be a part of and being scandalised by the many terrible choices that are made because the people on screen can't do any better because they haven't been educated by their privilege to avoid situations like your kids growing up on camera on a reality TV show.

When people have money but no class it's still poverty porn I reckon. It's that special brand of poverty porn like "Look what happens when po folk come into money and don't understand how to use it"

Then you get women with average children spending money on them like they're going to be anything except average. Christi said she spent $16k per year on dance for Chloe, and she didn't even want to be there half the time.

It definitely feels like poverty porn to me....

ilikeplanets 12-18-2017 08:38 PM

It feels like spoiled brat porn to me, but I definitely watched more than 3 seasons of it T_T

ilikeplanets 12-18-2017 08:39 PM

And I'm talking about the moms, not the kids! Those poor kids, that ranking pyramid of doom!!!


Bring back Brooke and Paige!

ilikeplanets 12-18-2017 08:44 PM

I've also watched 21 seasons of America's Next Top Model so I think I win this thread
