Passions.   *sigh*   It feels good to get that off my chest  :P

Ahaha I used to watch that too, a few years ago.  I used to get so pissed because nothing would happen for a solid week, and yet I'd still watch.

So what was with the whole mask thing?  And with so many actors changing around, I couldn't tell who was who.  Who's died so far?

Oh, I do watch Grey's Anatomy as well.  Though it's become so thoroughly miserable recently, that it's no longer a pleasure.

The old mask thing from Rome or the new Male/Female mask thing?  Also, does anyone (besides Timmy) ever really "die" on a soap opera  ;) really only people presumed dead until they bring them back  ;D

Rock of Love.

I don't really watch reality shows, but the hypocracy and desperation on this one crack me up.

Oh, and I'm a wrestling fan.


I should just shoot myself now, right?  :)

   Generally, any show I watch on HGTV is a guilty pleasure. But I enjoy watching people spend tons of money to do things to their houses we'll never be able to afford.

I don't watch much wrestling these days, but I still love it. It's gay soap opera.

I tune in to Robin & Company in the mornings.  Lou Dobbs Tonight is always good for a chuckle while I eat my supper.

I like the cheerful proud to be semi-amateurish attitude of Robin Meade and her company.  And Lou Dobbs is just about the only fake outrage I can stand ever since the Fox people went completely off the reservation batshit insane after the '06 midterms.
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

Travel Channel/FoodNetwork/Discovery Channel/History Channel documentaries about Hot Dogs.

There's apparently millions of the feckers all using the same footage or incredibly similar footage and I have to watch them everytime I see one.

I love seeing the old geezer and crone who run Superdawg in Chicargo or the dude from Nathan's pontificating about how he'd like to "see the title(most Hot Dogs eaten) brought back to home" from Japan (I imagine they'll have to update that portion seeinghow Kobayashi lost last time).

I watched about three hours of Tales from the Darkside today and I'm feeling pretty guilty about it. I am hoping that this confession will alleviate some of it.

I always loved the intro to that show.

A stroll in the country was never so terrifying!


p.s. Also, if you watch closely, when the image goes negative, you can see a car passing in the background.

I will admit to spending summers in my earlier life watching American Gladiators, which USA broadcast reruns of -- in order -- so that you could follow the season long tournament format.

Burning question: What did the referee do on that show besides say "Ready Red!? Ready Blue?!" and then blow the whistle. Kinda like Moira Quirk on Guts... do they actually officiate anything going on? Did he have the power to stop an event?

If not, I believe I am fully qualified for this position for any future incarnations of American Gladiators. Trust me, they'll try it again.

I used to watch Tales from the Crypt religiously on HBO, and then later when it reran on Sci-Fi.
