I am disgusted by Once Upon a Time. Rather than coming up with their own ideas for the fairy tales, it seems they tend to re-use the Disney versions. Belle, Ariel, Elsa? They all look the dame, with he same personalities. And making Mulan the gay one? Wow, HOW ORIGINAL. I bet they put a lot of thought into that. There is nothing wrong having a gay character. But choosing her proves they are running on a stereo type. Plus Mulan/Shang 5ever. A lot of people have tried to get me hooked by saying it's like the Disney version, but that does not tempt me. It disgusts me that people have become so lacking in creativity.

YEah girl! I saw the finale. it was awesome. Now this show is starting to become a favorite as they've risen the bar to what marvel fans expected the show to be.

JustSoWall-eCrazy - Yeah. Admittedly, I can't remember most of the stupid moments since it's been like a year.

I also got sick and tired of the show giving Regina a free pass on everything she did while treating everyone that tried to hurt her as evil.

And I'm not really into "Frozen". I think it's massively overrated.

Agreed. I did not care for the pilot or the next couple of episodes, but pretty soon I started really liking it. I'm definitely a fan now.
Spoiler: show
But what about Ward, huh? What a jerk! I hate that guy now.
Ironically I found Skye and Ward very annoying in the beginning. I don't feel that way at all now.

While I quite enjoy Frozen, I have noticed two factions on tumblr. One defends every single element, claiming the movie as perfect. The other seems to go out of their way to point out "problematic things" or plot holes or that the sisters look too similar to spite the aforementioned group. All of these people are idiots, by the way. The perfect movie does not exist, and it never will as long as movies are made by humans. However if I enjoy a movie, I can see the flaws for myself. I am not a fool, and I can tell for myself what is "offensive", and what I consider a plot hole. I do not like people trying to convince me how good a movie is, or how bad. I have my opinion and I detest these people because they want to control everyone's opinions. I really love the movie though, but I do not believe in any such thing as the perfect movie.

Great. Now I don't want to watch Big Bang Theory.

My dad told me it was more like "Friends" and has nothing to do with Sci-Fi. So I looked it up on IMDb, but I can't seem to find the other version. And I though it was supposed to be Sci-Fi because of the title!

Grr...I've been tricked!

If you want me to list shows I watch that I have on video or DVD, that's a longish list.
So let me know if you want the complete list, otherwise I'll just stick with the following info:

Broadcasting/Recent Shows:
How to Train Your Dragon series (currently in season 2, season 3 pending).
Lightning Point (was supposed to get 2 seasons, but got axed).
Mako Mermaids (currently in season 2).

Defiance is one I am considering to watch, but haven't been able to obtain any copies of the show yet.

My problem seems to be that as time goes on, they aren't making as many shows that I enjoy, so I watch tv less and less.

I think I am addicted to Pretty Little Liars (also known as PLL). I am currently on Season 2. Does anyone else watch it?

The TV shows I am currently watching are Urusei Yatsura (finally broke the 70-episode mark), Ranma 1/2, Wander Over Yonder, the first season of Pokémon, and a whole array of other shows off-and-on. I still need to get back to My Little Pony, I feel bad about falling an entire season behind :(

Bill, Penny Dreadful was a very exciting first season. I anticipate its return.

My former resource room teacher just told me this evening of a Sci-Fi TV show called "Battlestar Galactica", so tonight I just watched the first episode via my sister's shared Netflix account... :mrgreen:

Oh dear. I can't believe I just got interested in yet another Sci-Fi title! :shock: I love Sci-Fi...it's my favorite genre! Oh me gosh!

So now it's been Doctor Who, Star Trek, Stargate, and Battlestar Galactica within the last few months. Yep, that's me gone Sci-Fi right there! 8D

I'm currently watching Breaking Bad, The Big Bang Theory, Adventure Time, New Girl, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Orange Is the New Black and other ones that I don't actually remember.
I want to start Lost and House, M.D., which I began to watch a couple of years ago, but never finished.
