Grey's Anatomy.

All the ladies I work with are obsessed with it, and I can not bring myself to watch something that looks so horrible.

Also, I wish there weren't so many cuttin' up dead body type shows, but I don't really think any of them are that bad. =/ I'd just rather have more variety on tv.

Every time I try to watch an episode of Grey's Anatomy to see what all the hype about, all I see is the same thing.

"lol we're all doctors and we all have sex with each other"

I get tired of shows that glamorize cheaters and play off promiscous women as "powerful". The blonde doctor is so cute, but she comes across as a complete dumbass, and it drives me nuts as well.

Grey's Anatomy is just a shitty high school drama set in a hospital where every few episodes they play some shitty sad song like Snow Patrol or The Fray to some 'emotional' scenes and then advertise it as inspirational and groundbreaking and blaaaarrrrgggggggggggghh

I also hate NCIS, my room mate loves it. It's just another crime investigation show that tries to be funny sometimes

McLeod's Daughters is a pile of flaming cunt aswell, consider yourselves lucky they only play it in Aus :-(

Some reality stuff doesn't bug me. Top Model is a guilty pleasure, but I love it, and I think some non-contest shows like What Not to Wear are really helpful.

I want to know who watches most of the reality shows I see on MTV and VH1, though!

The thing I hate about MTV reality shows is how painfully obvious it is that they're all scripted, even that Pimp My Ride shit was scripted.

If I was bad ass and had all the money in the world I'd buy the network and turn it back into something awesome

Marceline

There is channel flipping entertainment to be found in Parental Control, because the scripted lines they always have are hilariously cheeseball. It is a great show to watch during commercial breaks!

Dumb high school and middle school kids. I knew a lot of people in my high school that watched Laguna Beach.

I get really confused with what the demographic is supposed to be on MTV nowadays. The only thing I can stand watching is ANTM reruns/marathons. And everytime I do catch one, they have about 30 new shows being advertised. Everything looks effing terrible though. My Super Sweet 16 makes me want to kill people. They could take out an appetizer for their party and with the money they saved, pay off my college loans ;\

I also hate all the shows posted above except, Law & Order & Spongebob Squarepants.

Spongebob: I laugh at the jokes and high detail close ups more than the actual episode plot.

Law & Order: I got hooked on it from season 6, although it may be overrated i can't say i hate it.

Crappy dramas (too many to list), MTV "reality" shows, oh and Malcolm in the middle... in primary school people wouldn't shut up about how funny it was.

I don't really watch that many shows on television and don't pay attention to what shows people say are really good and really bad.

And even the ones that I do know get hype are shows I've never watched, so I really wouldn't have any right to say that they don't deserve the word of mouth they're getting because I've never seen them to make an actual opinion on the show.

I doubt I would bother to watch any of those shows anyways. I don't watch television too much anyways. I really only watch Law and Order reruns, since I'm not fond of the new cast, along with Monk, Psych and sporting events.

My WWE boycott is in full effect, but to be honest I haven't been watching wrestling for a long stretch for well over half a decade now.

If we're talking about shows then I would have to say CSI gets my vote. It maybe alot of people's favorite but I could care less about modern "whodunnits". Not to mention they have like two different spin-offs airing at the same time. Super Sweet Sixteen, House, and any type of "Nanny" show all make the roster for my shitlist. :rolleyes:

tinyjeans
10-17-2007, 06:07 AM
Clearly neither do you.

My Name is Earl just isn't humorous. Scrubs hasn't been funny since season one and is just annoying anymore. Lost was never compelling and just rapes it's audience of their time. Prison Break had a good idea that just lasted way too long and isn't effective anymore. House has it's moments, however, it is very poorly acted and often difficult to watch for that reason alone. Heroes . . . are you fukcing kidding me? And out of all of these, The Office is the best by far. It often tries too hard though and the boss is way too over-the-top anymore for my liking. Also, being a fan of the original British version, I would much rather watch older episodes of a much more realisitic and controlled show than a newer American one that is often dumbed down for the masses and less effective.

I'll give you the first two man, but the first season of Prison Break is basically amazing. A tiny bit of filler I guess after they prolonged the length due to its success, but all in all, excellent stuff. The second series was very bad though and I have not watched the third but I hear it's alright.

if you miss good shows that been pulled off the air: [Only registered and activated users can see links] is your savior. but be warned: their updating is slightly slow and they still carry dead videos.

I just think some of the shows now are inferior to the shows then..

Heroes is the gayest idea of a show ever created, its like some producer picked up some material from teens who collect comic books and slapped it all together with this show.

About Charmed, that show is good, sucked ass when Cole was no longer appearing, he was my favorite character.

Pittsburgh has the fewest points allowed (before 2nites game), however there are 4 or 5 teams with greater number of sacks, interceptions and TD's. Titans, Pats, and Colts to name a few.

I'd have to say the Titans have the best DEF in the league right now.

True. I would say that the points allowed stat is the most important stat for a NFL defense though.

you think there are shows that should get less attention (you're already giving your own attention to those shows by thinking about them), so you make a thread about it to draw even more attention to those shows that you don't want to pay attention to but you do.
just checking.

They're shows on completely different channels though. I don't think it's fair to blame Battlestar Galactica (which is a fantastic show by the way) for how badly Fox screwed over Firefly.
