Everyone has their guilty pleasures. If you love fiction as much as I do, it’s almost inevitable that along the way you’re going to fall for some real clunkers. When a TV show does one thing right, when it captures your interest in the way that makes your socks roll up and down, you’ll overlook some pretty horrendous flaws. Looking at you, Heroes.
Sometimes it goes beyond that, though. Sometimes you like a show, a movie, a band, a book series, or a video game for no earthly reason… or at least no reason that you’ll admit to yourself. Come journey into the depths of masochism with me as I examine one item from each category that I’d never admit I actually liked to my friends in a bar, even if they were shoving bamboo into my fingernails, yet will happily disclose to everyone on the internet for some reason. (The reason is comedy.)
