Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

To be honest, I don't really have guilty pleasure television shows. I have movies that are guilty pleasures (I just love watching stupid movies, y'all) and I definitely read books that are guilty pleasures (I enjoy Anita Blake ironically, okay?). However, television shows require a much longer-term investment and so I either come to terms with my enjoyment of the show or I eventually stop watching it.

Right now, I don't watch any television shows that I feel guilty enjoying. In fact, you'd have to go back to 2005 or earlier to find something I enjoyed but felt embarrassed by enjoying. And, at that time, I'd have to say I was vaguely embarrassed by my enjoyment of Desperate Housewives.

I'm not sure why... it was a pretty intelligent show, and it definitely had a speculative element to the first season. (Not that I require all of my shows to have speculative elements.) Maybe it's just something that was so unlike me. However, I enjoyed the hell out of the first season; the second season dragged for me, though, and I stopped watching it. I'm always surprised now to discover it's still on.

Quixote, on the other hand, admits to watching every single episode of Space 1999. Where, he tells me, the moon is blown out of Earth's orbit and proceeds to move through space VERY FAST having ADVENTURES!!! This sounds absolutely hilarious to me. It apparently appealed to his funny bone as well, at least that's the reason he's giving for having seen EVERY SINGLE EPISODE. Yes, that must be reiterated.

Actually, there was another show that my husband said was a much guiltier pleasure but he refuses to allow me to divulge that to the Internet. Sorry, guys. But I must say... it is a juicy secret. ;)
