Hi people! 🙂
A few months ago, I asked you about some book or film that everyone else likes but you hate. Let’s do it the other way round today:
Is there a book, film, or TV show you like that everyone seems to dislike?
While I often like things that are generally disliked, usually because people find them strange, just as I often do not like things that are popular with people because they’re boring and overrated, I’m having a hard time coming up with some specific book/film/TV show example. Probably because I mostly try to look for people who have similar tastes to me, and if someone does not, there’s little point in discussing how each of us dislikes what the other loves. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that I do like to read dictionaries, not only when I just need to look up a word, whereas people seem to find it very dire and boring. I think it’s very brain-stimulating, and definitely synaesthesia-stimulating for me. Sometimes I like to read through a few random words in a dictionary, either to learn something new or just because.
What’s something like this for you? 🙂
Do you ever binge-watch shows, or do you spread them out?
I don’t binge-watch anything almost at all. If I do it happens extremely rarely.
How about you? 🙂
What kind of shows do you like to watch?
Well, like with films, I don’t watch a lot, I just don’t watch a lot of TV in general. But if I do, they’re often some documentaries about stuff that interests me, sometimes talk shows but they have to be really interesting, and sometimes talent shows though I used to much more in the past, now I just can’t really take them seriously and they often feel very cringey. I do sometimes listen to some music from people who have become famous or at least more widely known thanks to some talent show and yes there are some really fabulously talented people but the vast majority is oh so bland, and just the way all those talent shows work is somehow off-putting to me.
How about you? 🙂
Have you watched any really good TV shows lately? What were they?
Nope, I actually haven’t watched TV in weeks now. The only thing I watch pretty regularly for linguistic purposes is Welsh series called “Rownd A Rownd”, but practically it’s not TV as I watch it on my computer. But other than that if I watch TV, it’s either for social reasons – I watch it with my Mum and we talk about stuff, drink something, have snacks and not always actually focus on what we watch, or because I really like it and find it interesting while at the same time haven’t anything better to do, which happens very very rarely.
How about you?
