Guilty Pleasures

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

Want U Back by Cher Lloyd.

I have no defence for this. It's a terrible song. It has terrible, terrible lyrics. It's not original or good in any way. I feel like a traitor to good music D:

And not the new one. Didn't care for the new one at all.

I think the first one was one of our first DVDs, actually, partially because my parents refused to let go of their VCR player while it still worked. :lol: And Green Goblin was awesome. Even if I did never get to reading the actual comic.

Peanuts, both the strips and the little cheesy movies. I love them so, so much, ever since I was 6 or so, and Snoopy was probably my second favorite character ever only after Oz's Scarecrow.

Peanuts! I went through a Peanuts obsession. Do you have the Monopoly? :mrgreen:

No, but I wanted it. :mrgreen: The last time we went to Carowinds (a little theme park on the border of NC and SC, not sure how known it is outside of here) they had changed their kids area to a Peanuts theme.

I'm not sure Peanuts is even a guilty pleasure. Just appreciation of fine literature. :mrgreen:

I think it was one of ours, too! :lol: And I think my parents still have a VCR player. :oops: But yeah, glad to know I'm not the only one, because they were cool.
And, um, I guess that's another one, and something you guys may not know. I have read quite a lot of comic books. :oops: More than you might think.

We still have a VCR, it's just one of those with both that and DVDs. Still no Blu-Ray player, actually.

And speaking of my parents' things: Street Fighter II and Super Mario Kart, the ones for the Super Nintendo? Love 'em.

I admit to being a huge Twilight fan. I have read the books and watched the movies several times. :oops:
Scooby Doo. Another of those cartoons you are never too old to watch.
I write fanfics where I ship E/E.

Shipping E/E here too. :lol: :lol:

Though that's not a guilty pleasure technically. Not anymore!

Tacky, saccharine lyrics. Directing that Busby Berkeley would be rolling in his grave over. I just love them :oops:

The top shows that fulfil these categories are Lestat (Seriously, if you have not seen how farcical the burning scenes are, you're in for a treat) and Love Never Dies, a show with the Phantom dressed like a skeevy Salsa instructor who seduces middle class mothers and a plot that feels like a terribly uninspired fan fiction.


Me too. I generally start watching a show thinking "this is so so bad" and end saying "that was amazing- let's watch it again!"

Me too. No need to feel guilty about it though :D

My guilty pleasure is True Blood

Guys, I'm dangerously addicted to the new Fox show Sleepy Hollow and the guy playing Ichabod Crane (Might as well call him Commodore Sexyface) is the most attractive actor I've ever seen on TV.

This image says a lot.

This show better not get cancelled because it already has a Tumblr fanbase, and it's going to be huge. I'm proud to say that I was one of the character's first fangirls :lol:

I'm loving "Sleepy Hollow," as well! Even though I'm really not keen on the idea of turning Ichabod Crane, of all characters, into an action hero -- seriously, what's next? Casting Vin Diesel as Marius in a LM adaptation? (Hope nobody gets any ideas from that... :? )

But in any case, even though I thought the concept was a bit ridiculous, I'm really liking the show itself. It's entertaining, thought-provoking, and the writing and acting are quite good so far. And the effects are very good, particularly for network TV.

Heh... I need to sort out some of my other guilty pleasures, as well. I'll come back to this topic. :wink:

I have another one. shAme the Rock Opera. It's really awful in the costume department when looking for period clothing and the songs overexagerate the characters, but they're just so catchy.

I have two big Les Mis guilty pleasures. One is Enjolras/Courfeyrac, the other is Hadley Fraser's Javert. I have been known to squeal a bit at the latter. :oops:
