Inspired by the fact that I'm stuck here with 'Make it or Break it' on tv. In fairness, Tara was going to spare me but I said it was fine since I was on the laptop anyway.
We have a lot of threads about things we like to read, or movies and television we enjoy watching. But me? I like to complain, dag'nabbit! So what about television shows we absolutely cannot stand. I don't just mean bad -- many of us already think the *majority* of television is bad. I want to know what everyone thinks is the cream of the crap. The sultans of stink. The Brittany Spearses of the tube.
I have three that Tara watches that I absolutely hate. The aformentioned 'Make it or Break it' is one. Like the title, it's contrived. It's poorly written and even more poorly acted. And worst of all, it's a high-school girl drama!
Yet this is the least offending of the three. The other two are probably a tie. She watches 'Toddlers in Tiaras' which litterally enrages me at how most of those parents are completely screwing up their kids. She thinks these little three and four year olds throwing "Diva tantrums!" is funny; it's like she doesn't understand that these are the exact kids that end up being the self-important, obnoxious, entitled wastes that plague our youth. She says "Yeah, but their not my kids" -- she doesn't seem to make the connection that we still end up having to deal with them every day. Argh!!! And the parents! I can't even talk about them without getting myself banned here . . .
The second is 'Ghost Whisperer', which thankfully has been on hiatus for a while. Bad acting. Repeatative plots. Bad acting. Shallowness of character. Bad acting. Repeatativeness. Bad acting. It's repeatative. And the acting is bad. I hope I got my point across! UGH!
Okay, I feel a little better now. And likely there's someone out here that likes one or more of these shows. Don't worry; I won't hold it against you! (Or I secretly will, but really, what does *my* opinion matter?)
So what shows do you all hate?
