    Completely agreed. Z-Nation is fun cheese without any of the bullshit soap opera drama.

    I also can't stand a good chunk of TWD's fanbase. You can't imagine how many people I've ran into who who hate the genre but love that overrrated piece of zombie shit.

    I'm not particular fond of Rap either but I understand the appeal of the older stuff. The new stuff? Yeah I don't get why it (or any modern music for the matter) is popular. But kids these days have the worst taste in...well...EVERYTHING.

    I prefer Batman v Superman to Civil War.

    I enjoy Civil War but much like everything in the MCU it rarely takes risks and feels overly safe. BvS, although FAR from perfect, was willing to take risks and made for a more enjoyable experience.

    And when it comes to BvS I'm referring to the director's cut.

    I disagree. I play an instrument and played in bands and I think rap absolutely can be an art form. There are some incredibly talented people making ambitious rap records, but like rock there's a lot of bad, as well.

    I agree. I'm unwilling to dismiss an art form just because it isn't to my liking. The same "This isn't art" declaration has been used against virtually every new art form for at least the past 150 years. Rap won't be the last.

    Thinking about it a bit more, I think that when people have such a strong opinion over a particular art form to the point where they loudly protest that it isn't an art form, it only makes that particular art form more relevant. Artists need to keep pushing the boundaries.

    Yeah rap and hip hop are definitely an art form. I don't think it's even a matter of opinion.

    Got a really unpopular opinion.

    The only remotely watchable Batman movie ever made was Tim Burtons.

    Every other film ever made that has Batman or Superman in it......is really fucking stupid. "Super heros" are for 5 years olds, if you ask me.


    and every form of music is technically an art form.....regardless of taste.

    God now I want to watch the original Batman. The 60's one.

    Does your superhero rule extend to sexy costumes as well?

    I just don't find the tv show Portlandia funny. My wife as well as a lot of my friends love it, but it really doesn't do a thing for me.

    I know the world hates Sex and the City... but that show is very worth watching because of Samantha. Samantha is a great damn character, even if I have no idea what Kim Cattrall is doing with that performance. (She's extremely rubbery and actively trying to camp it up. Not vamp, I mean it: camp. She's acting like a drag queen. Intentionally.)

    Popular opinion: Ally McBeal is the worst. Potentially unpopular follow-up: the character I truly hated the most on that show was John Cage (Peter MacNicol). She was supposed to be worse... but he got on my nerves so much faster.

    No idea how popular or unpopular: 9 times out of 10, Eric McCormack was poison to Will & Grace. His impressions are completely made out of cringe. His accents are like being shot with a gun loaded with wasps. His Will Truman wouldn't know acerbic if it was a wasp. And stung him. A thousand times.

    The "Chickens" episode of Bojack Horseman was a transparent attempt to copy Family Guy's formula.

    The ending to Haters Back Off!'s first season actually has me in suspense. I would watch a second season.

    I want Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt back for another season so freakin' bad...

    The Mindy Project isn't fun anymore. Stop giving her new damn boyfriends every season, I want her and Danny to get back together. (Oh, and, when the friggin' hell did Mindy become a Trump supporter?)

    Just started Freaks and Geeks... I have questions. Why is that cheerleader so interested in Sam? I just can't accept that. Reality = crumbling. I'm also having trouble getting Busy Phillips out of her role on Dawson's Creek, a show in which she's much more suited, to seeing her in a show like this. Also... why did Rashida Jones only get 1 episode so far? She's the best thing about the show. (I left off on the episode about Nick's drumming.)

    Spirited Away is in the middle of the pack, as far as ranking Miyazaki's films are concerned.

    I flat-out have no interest in Miyazaki's style.
