AI: Loving hating and dirty secrets
One of my least best kept secrets is that I love horrible TV. Most of the TV I watch, I watch because I hate it. Which I enjoy doing. And I have no idea why. I’ve watched every episode of Jersey Shore as well as Snooki&JWoww. I watched the last several seasons of 7th Heaven. I watch Glee and Nashville and Catfish, amused with horror and confusion. Sometimes I’m not even sure if I’m watching a show because I’m enjoying hating it or I actually enjoy it… like Castle.
I particularly like reality TV because it is like skeptical porn… it’s reality… but it’s not reality… and you get to sit there and dissect what may have actually happened and what was editing and how you’re being manipulated. (Or that’s the story that I’m going with instead of just admitting I like it because it’s vapid and addictive. But I really do play skeptic games with myself while watching.)
Do you hate watch tv or movies? Do you hate-read any sites? What should I start watching? What do you dare me to watch? What is the best-worst show on TV? Tell me your dirty entertainment secrets
