TV Procedurals.

I know 90% of DVD Talk hates them.

I've always enjoyed them going back to the 80s. Sometimes I don't need some complex, heavily serialized, linked, mythology based story arc with deep characters. I enjoy a 1-off episode of a crime or medical mystery show where I can just sit back and know it will be done in 1 hour.

Is that an age thing? The older I get, the more often I buy liverwurst.

I can't tell how many times I've said "OK, just one more episode then I'll get off the couch", and it was a total lie.

Can't believe I didn't think of this immediately: Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof.

Paradoxically, I'll say small girls, and that includes small chests and flat butts.

Soda (everyone is just so damn healthy these days!)

Air travel. I like having a block of time where I donít have to do anything except at a snack, read, watch a movie or listen to music and nap.

Re: What do you LOVE that everyone else HATES?

Yup I love air travel too. To me there’s nothing more exciting than hopping aboard a plane and whether it’s only 2 hours or 15 hours, you’ll be somewhere new and have new experiences. I know a lot of people hate flying and hate being at airports. The only thing is that flying has become a little less comfortable since I suffered from a blood clot 4 years ago in my leg. I take blood thinners to help but I still suffer from intermittent swelling in my leg.

I get claustrophobic on planes and Iím tall so Iím usually uncomfortable throughout the whole flight BUT I do love airports. I think theyíre without a doubt the most fascinating place in the world for ďpeople watchingĒ.

Yeah, if people don't start watching these games, the league might have to fold...

But itís still feels like Iím committing a sin when I tell people I watch football.


Iíll also add, with the exception of this years terrible show, the Academy Awards.

Another vote for NFL, and that's even during the first couple of games, when early injuries seem an extra cruel fate/job hazard. I am already becoming over-eager for the season to start.

Spam (the canned meat, not junk email). I like fried eggs and spam for breakfast.

Re: What do you LOVE that everyone else HATES?

Writing real paper and pen letters
Cool to cold, rainy weather. Overcast all or most of the time.
Standard Time
Small, compact 4-door sedans.
Formica counter tops. They're just fine, usable, and 1/10th the cost of the other unnecessarily elegant options.
Smaller homes, downsizing, and getting by with less. Denying yourself things to better the planet / express good stewardship.
Homes with actual enclosed ROOMS and low ceilings, and not an exercise in openess / open plan.
Printed, high-quality bound books, specifically nonfiction books. Having your own library...
