TV Shows you hate but watch anyway

So most of you know that I am a SciFi buff, always interested in new SciFi movies or TV. Somehow I heard about Warehouse 13 and decided to watch the pilot, which I didn't really like. The cast was kind of lame, the premise of the show cliche and derivative. The female lead's lips overly botoxed, and the CGI so unreal it sometimes looks likes our photochopped pics here on TRIBE.

I am almost at the end of season 4 now. There are a pile of new characters: the cliche geek girl, the token gay dude. The female lead's lips change in size and shape from episode to episode. The lead old guy plays the same roll in this and in every other role he has ever played (grumpy old guy). A lot of this show is shot in Toronto, but they strip out every identifying feature of Toronto if they can (the bastards!). But maybe this is a good thing.

Yet somehow I keep coming back for more. WTF.

i was like that with sons of anarchy for like 3 seasons. every episode made me want to punch myself in the face. every time tara scowled, every time gemma raised an eyebrow, every time tig looked pained by what he was capable of, every time there was a 5 minute long montage at the end of the episode....just wanted to literally stab myself

the next week though? there i was again.

eventually it got so bad i gave up, but i hung on longer than any rational human should have.

I'm the same with dexter. Some of the acting on that show is atrocious. Whenever Deborah tries to act I vomit a bit in my mouth. I have to pause it every time to take a break from the horrible, horrible acting. Plus, the show has become so completely absurd I question myself and ask what the fuck is wrong with me, I need help.

Storage Wars - actually I don't hate it that much, but can't stop watching it. You know you got issues when you can watch re-runs of the same crap show.

Sadly (and I'm sure you already know) you missed the best scene when they killed off Opie.

I feel your pain re: Debra. Although, I'm not sure if the actress is just terrible, or if she's being directed to act like a truly annoying, immature and partly retarded character. Either way, the Debra character totally rubs me the wrong way and isn't believable. How can a person like that survive or garner any kind of legitimacy in a detective's role. Gah!

Yet I continue to watch. I think it must due to a fascination with the foes that they pit against Dexter. I'm intrigued by the latest psychiatrist/neuroscientist/whatever chick they've brought into the last season. You know that shit is going to end in a mess.

I watch Webdreams all the time. If you ever wanted to know the day-to-day minutiae of small-time Montreal adult film "stars" & internet webmasters then this show is for you. I now know way more about gay porn than I ever wanted to. Total shite.

My gosh. I saw one episode of webdreams and I was in shock that this was actually a production.
 
Big Brother - it features some of the worst people humanity has to offer, but unfortunately sharing a TV with a spouse usually means that you have to tolerate her shit in order for her to tolerate yours.

Highsteppa....I hated the show when I first started living with my now wife. She watched 2 seasons with me in the other room playing PS3/PC games.

That was seasons 6/7....

But overhearing the show I slowly got sucked in and now I actually think it's a great social experiment and study of stereotypes.

I'm fucking hooked.

I think after Dr. Will I lost all interest, but I can see why some people love the show.

This season though, they're seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel - I can't wait to see the reaction that Aaryn racist bitch when she finds out that she doesn't have a job when they finally get around to evicting her.

Millionaire Matchmaker. Fuck I want to roundhouse that woman in the teeth. But motherfucker does she make me weep with laughter when she unloads her opinion on why the dudes are big fat losers or tells one of the girls her outfit makes her look like a whore, granny, man, etc.

I don't have cable/satellite so I can't be sucked into the vortex, but I did watch Cops for years as a guilty pleasure. Anytime I heard the words "stop resisting" I knew I was in for a treat.

Cops is still freaking awesome and it has a wicked drinking game attached to it.

For every citizen that is walking around with his shirt off - take a drink
For every gun that's drawn when they're taking down a suspect - take a drink.
If the suspect is caught while hiding under a house or lying down in bushes - take a drink
In a high speed chase - take a drink for every red light or stop sign the suspect blows through.
Animals being wrangled (this includes Police dogs being released to catch a suspect) - take a shot.
For every mullet caught on camera - take a shot.

There's tons more. And as you can imagine, the early seasons that take place in the south, you're hammered usually before the first act is through.

"Wife Swap" was one of my all time favourites, but after a few episodes, I realized that it just had to be rigged. It made me completely cynical about reality TV.

Yet, I still can't help but watch...
