    Eastenders and Coronation Street are appointment viewing for my GF, so even If I wanted to , I couldn't escape...

    I am also part of this viewing demographic for Eastenders... unfortunately I've started to enjoy the horrible show.

    80s cartoons. like a goddamn fiend. i will run marathons of voltron and the mysterious cities of gold, of care bears and rainbow brite and thundercats and she-ra. gallavants and felix the cat. i know they're terrible.

    and if we still had cable tv? i'd be hunting up cold case files. not that new scripted show--the old one that details horrific old murders that were finally, recently solved.

    @Oldhat

    reminds me of my brief dalliance with loungecore about a decade or so ago..

    This is always a fave of mine:

    John Updike. Halloween candy (have you tried chocolate Peeps?!). Cheap make up. Anything starring Sylvester Stallone. Maury Povich.

    A note: I noticed most of your low-brow pleasures hold a certain high-brow appeal, everyone. I know you can do better/worse.

    Primeval. And not just for Hannah Spearritt in her knickers (which hasn't happened since the first series anyway).

    Without wanting to spoil the free-flow of confessions with analytical bullshit, it seems somewhat obscure to insult something by calling it "low-culture" in a world where "high culture" consists, exactly, of what?

    That said:
    @sseloske -

    I like several songs by Matchbox 20. And I am going to listen to some of them right now.

    ...

    The Crow movies. All of them. I love them. I can't help it.

    Oh and does anyone else remember the movie Willow with Val Kilmer in it? Does that count in this thread? I'm not sure.

    Twist, you're not alone. I even watched the tv series when it was on reruns a while back. Hell, when I was a kid, Crow: City of Angels was the first place id heard of the Day of the Dead.

    ...star trek novels. I loves them. I even got one autographed.

    @Alistair: It totally was epic. In fact I am sick today so its going to be watched while I drown my sickness with the vodka I have in the freezer.

    @Alan: The tv series actually annoyed me. Too bright and sunshiny. The 3rd one, the one with Kirsten Dunst as the girlfriend where he got electrocuted, the wake up scene where he's peeling the burnt crap away from his face still makes my stomach flip *shudders*

    One word: Glee.
  4.  (9081.37)
    Glee, Community, Lady Gaga, Bakuman, Green Lantern, Pet Society and Farmville. Although I don't feel quite guilty about any of these; the last two have been pretty helpful in bonding with family since I moved out. I think it's good to like a lot of things; just have to be discerning enough to recognize good stuff from stuff that you just enjoy. And moderate and not stuff the brain with too much junk food.

    @Twist

    re Willow,

    Warwick Davis (the chap who played the title role in Willow, as well as Wicket the Ewok in 'Jedi') lives in a suburb of my hometown.

    He is an absolute local legend...

    @256

    No insult is implied in the 'low-culture' tag at all, in fact I tend to use it as a term of endearment..;-)

    Excellent entries all round - I'm remembering awesome stuff all thanks to you guys!

    Keep 'em coming!

    Glee, Gilmore Girls and Sophie Ellis Bextor.

    It used to be worse - I watched Neighbours for over a decade before ripping myself painfully free at the start of this year.
