What dregs of pop culture can you absolutely not live without, regardless of the shame it brings you to like them/it?

Me, I'm a Survivor junkie. But I want to hear others' guilty confessions as well.

Ok I admit it I love Law and Order. One of my students chastised me for it saying that it glorifies police brutality but I love it anyway. I watch the episodes more than twice. It's like a lullaby putting me to sleep at night.

That's it for me.

I really like Law and Order, I don't even feel guilty at all about it.

I do feel guilty about my nurotic need to watch old episodes of M*A*S*H. I love those boozer doctors.

Law and Order is the BEST, evah. Guilty pleasures? There is no way in hell I'm going to admit that I watched Oprah yesterday - we all joined hands and learned about setting boundries...which was more of the "I'm a victim so Oprah could you save me" crap. I did learn something though, I learned I set boundries.

My fave shows are on Tuesday and Thurday nights:

Tuesday - That 70's Show

It's TOO funny!! I am also a child of the 70's and it brings back fond memories. Also, I think Fez is a hoot and Hyde if he were a real person would be in Quebec City right now!

Thursday - Whose Line Is It Anyway?

I laugh until I cry when I watch this show. All of the stuff is improv and you never know what is going to happen on that show.

They even had Robin Williams on during sweeps!

Since moving to Montréal, I was never "big" on the idea of watching Buffy. I kept that going until October, at that time, my roommate's friend Rachel moved in for a couple weeks since she had no place of her own. Every wednesday, the television belong to her, so we had no choice other then watching Buffy. Now its April, and every wednesday since October, its been a "TV party" just to watch Buffy, oh, and Angel. They were both new episodes this week, and boy oh boy were they ever good. hmmm, this is sort of sad.

And I agree, they *were* really good.

I *was* a huge Buffy fan, but I've been disappointed by the seriousness of it this season. It used to be so much lighter & quirkier. Angel has it all over Buffy in my humble opinion. This is my 1 and only guilty pleasure (yeah, right . . .)

By the way, has anyone theorized on the connection between "reality tv" and "the documentary?" I watch so-called documentaries on TLC and am amazed by the sensationalization of, say, sharks for example, making 'em out to be all evil. (Of course, all documentary is creation and entertainment, but there are surely some styles of documentary which are more reputable than others. Non-sensationalizing, and respectful of the viewer and the subject.)

Do you think the reality tv trend shows a further "perversion" of the documentary style, going farther than the TLC approach to the "evil" sharks, or is it something else entirely? What sort of guilty desire is it feeding?

Buffy is supposed to be a guilty pleasure? Nuh uh.

The guilty pleasure that always shatters my indiecred is a secret affinity for Robbie Williams. Man, my time in English karaoke bars did some serious damage.

I don't have a tv so my guilty pleasure is trashy novels. And Ahnuld movies. And any animated science fiction. Although I do have to borrow a tv and vcr to watch those or bully my friends into picking my choices on movie nights.
I'm also completely addicted to CBC Radio One except for Cross-Country Check-Up which i usually have to turn off when Wingnut from Out-of-Right-Field gets on to rant about whatever the topic is that day. But I'm not bitter.

Guilty pleasure. I have many. My favourite would be sitting in front of my computer,on a Friday night after a hard weeks work, playing a computer game or ripping a dvd, with the tv on watching Law and Order SVU with a very strong cup of coffee (fair trade variety of coarse) with evaporated milk eating half a dozen Presidents Choice triple chocolate chip fudge cookies.
There I said it.

Shame, guilt, it's woven into the culture, an advanced form of socialism.

Here we have psychoanalysts, therapists and special medications to dampen our lusts and frustrations, and help us be HAPPY about working long hours, paying high rent and taxes, and wasting two hours each way commuting to a boring job on roads that are falling apart.

Cheers
Rob

PS I had somebody tape the entire 5 seasons of Babylon 5 for me... then when I had time watched several episodes in one sitting, while eating things that I can't normally get away with eating!

Hey, Rob, will you lend it to me sometime?

I seldom watch TV, but for sure it will be during this no-TV week that one of the crucial episodes of Bablyon 5 that I haven't seen yet will be shown.

Another sci-fi series that I want to get back episodes of is Earth: Final Conflict. I have never decided if I like this show or detest it. I think I am still trying to figure out the basic premise. And I caught the cliff-hanger season-ender when Lilly was about to give birth to a Juridian baby and never caught the following episode. She hasn't turned up again and I don't know what happened.

Hell yeah Law And Order rocks

About it glorifying police brutality-I can see why someone would say that. But there are episodes where cops are chastised for using extreme force.

"Guilty" pleasures...well I guess going on shopping sprees would be another

The Beverley Hillbillies. Can't get enough of Jethro. And Miss Jane Hathaway (the late Nancy Culp who played her was a State Senator in California). I also have watched each Seinfeld episode at least 15 times and still love it. Dairy Queen Blizzards, especially when they're on sale. And listening to Foxy 88.5 and those dancin' oldies.

When I was in university, my roomates and I HAD to watch The A-Team, Magnum P.I. and Simon & Simon every day at noon. I hadn't seen the shows since I was a kid, and it was a real hit of nostalgia. We watched with a total sense of irony. We KNEW they were silly shows, and we liked to pick them apart.

We watched Baywatch for the same reason. Watching Baywatch with a group of real lifeguards is very fun. The entire group screams at the television, "You idiot! That would kill her!!!!"

I'm a big Battlestar Galactica addict as well.

Law & Order, West Wing (even though they seem to have ruined it now), Abba... got that covered.

Ever get hooked on a movie for no reason and watch it everytime it's shown-- even if it's on cable, like, 10 times a month? I do that constantly: this month's obssessive film is Party Monster.

Also --and this is embarassing-- not only did my boyf and I religiously watch Queer As Folk every Sunday, but we actually discussed it at length, as if the characters were semi-real people. We really need to get out more.

Same name, different dude---"honeycomb" jimmie rodgers was a pop-folkie in the 60's, the "yodelling brakeman", aka the "blue yodeller", aka the "father of country music" goes back to the 20's....If I knew how to post a picture here I would.
To compound the confusion, there's also 'Jimmy Rogers' --a great blues singer/guitarist out of chicago.

Also---yeah, Vicar of Dibley rules!

My great shame is my intense love of the Kratt Brothers. I have seen every episode of Zoboomafoo at least twice. Am I a freak or what?

The Kratt brothers are real cuties. I used to watch Zoboomafoo with the kids, but they've moved on.
Don't the Kratts have another show about animals, maybe for older kids? Somebody told me about it just this afternoon, but I didn't catch the name.

huge TV nut...seriously, it doesn't matter what's on...I'll even watch Relic Hunter. But does it not seem like the only way to get your head to stop thinking about rights, activism, the call out you have to write, the article about the interview you just did, the next demo, the atrocities of Glamis Gold, the killing of Haitians...
I seriously don't know how to know to stop thinking about it all...until, ahhh....a slurpee, some all-dressed chips, sweedish berries and some crap-tacular TV.
I make myself feel better by telling myself it's research about pop culture's depictions of womyn...

OK. Deep breath. Whenever I stand in line at the cashier in the local supermarket (not Loblaws) I read the latest National Enquirer or Star, but only if the headlines read Movie Stars With Bad Cosmetic Surgery or Wardrobe Malfunctions of the Rich and Famous

Singing along to the 70s channel on Siruis radio - I meean songs I HATED when I was in high school. What the hell gets into me I'll never know - nostalgia does strange things to a person.

That and the "house hunters" type shows on HGTV (inlcuding the new Canadian one "Buy Me").

I do the same thing. Never in a million years did I think I'd ever belt out 'Jeremiah was a bullfrog, duh duh duh!'
