Nope.  Because I understand some people like different things from me.   :)
Yeah, exactly, I mean there are tons of shows that I find terribly boring (a bunch of wankers barrack over office politics while wearing suits, that's fascinating). But considering I mostly watch The SPAN and, glutton for punishment that I am, History and Discovery, I don't really have to run into the shows I don't want to watch. :)

Yeah, everyone's got different tastes.  There are times when I'm surprised certain shows are still on the air, but that's about the extent of it.

Yeah, some of your movie reviews just shine with "live and let live"....your opinion of Bing Crosby, for instance.   ;) :-*

Ah, but those are different things.  Just because I may not like him, it doesn't mean I don't understand why he's popular.  People like his genial, kinda middle-of-the-road onscreen presence.  My opinion of him doesn't change the way I view other people's opinions of him, as I understand the difference.  And hey, I'll always give him the chance to change my mind with every film I see of his.  :)

I'm sorry if I offended anyone.  That was not my intent.  Should I delete this thread?

I don't think that's what they're saying.

all reality shows--from american idol, so you think you can dance, and dancing with the stars, to survivor, big brother, and fear factor. WHY?!?!

There are plenty others but..... I don't have THAT much time.
