Browsing through this thread, it occurred to me that we could have a thread titled 'shows I wish my spouse/significant other wouldn't watch'...
The only 'reality' show I've ever seen was Deadliest Catch, which I find interesting.
Never seen Titanic, nor do I intend to. Too many people threw out the spoiler...
Wife watches some shows that seem pretty abhorent to me. I'll chalk it up to the need for 'veg time', we all need that sometimes...as a result, I've seen bits n' pieces of:
Housewives of Orange County: A collection of the most vapid, shallow, phony, and uninteresting people I think I've ever seen. Who cares?
Desperate Housewives: Not too terribly bad characters, except when they do something completely asinine and dumb to keep the silly plot going. At least that show ran its course. Some would argue it ran its course years ago...
Various other 'reality' shows on 'Lifetime' (somebody please pull the plug on this channel...) that 'feature' more of the same type of people in Housewives of OC. I just don't see how anyone can be interested in these people.
Any 'home improvement' show on Home n' Garden: Interesting enough, but of course my wife thinks I could do some of the 'projects' featured on the show, and in the same amount of time, with the same lack of difficultly...
Shows that I didn't watch in the past but wife's enjoyment has rubbed off on me:
Big Bang Theory
House Hunters International - I find looking at houses in various other countries very interesting. Some are quite old (several centuries in some cases) and it's neat to see what they're like
