    This was decades ago, but I used to watch She-Ra. Not really embarrassed about it now, but I think it would have been disconcerting to me back in high school for my friends to have found out. Also watched He-Man, but that's not embarrassing!

    Well, I don't really care what my good friends know, but I'd be slightly embarassed if kids I casually hung out with at school knew I watch these on netflix from time to time.

    By the power of Grayskull, that is not embarrassing.

    The older episodes are really funny. The newer ones are stupid though.

    It's coming back?! I'm not one for cartoons, but the surrealism of that cartoon is great!

    I honestly have not seen much of the show. We weren't exposed to it as kids when we were very young because it wasn't really considered appropriate. Years later when I've actually seen them due to... other people watching them, I've thanked my parents for sparing me.

    Don't really know which ones I've seen though.

    "Old is better than new" is a common trend though, Star Wars and Star Trek both (Show-wise in the latter case) follow that theme. Comics seem to follow that trend, though I haven't sat there and read every issue, I've heard of some new stuff and thought it was kinda dumb.

    Yep, not embarrassed about my choice in TV entertainment.

    @warpus wait, what? :dubious:

    Isn't that one of those fundamentalist Christian programs?

    I confess I do watch far left wing media outlets like CNN sometimes.

    I've watched a lot of bad TV over the years. Too much to care if someone finds it embarrassing.

    You should be ashamed;)

    I don't know how bad CNN is, but I've seen MSNBC and their lies are more poisonous than vipers.

    Pawn Stars and American Pickers. Though that's more of a thing where my family watches it and I just end up watching it as a result sometimes. The guys in those shows annoy the hell out of me too. Not really that much that I like it but more of a thing where if the other family folks are watching it I don't really mind watching it a bit either. Though the only people I can imagine that would care about me watching those shows are the folks here. Some of my friends hate on the stuff I like, but, I just think of it as whatever since I hate a lot of their stuff too.

    CNN is benign... only someone really to the right would claim it is really to the left. MSNBC on the other hand is more or less the left's answer to Fox News.

    I've heard CNN is left-favoringly biased but I haven't watched it.

    Agreed. Nick was good in the 90's, then went downhill after 2001 or so.
