    Hey Everyone!

    So I don't know what came over me this morning, but I was looking for something to watch on TV and saw Top Gear was on. Paying no attention to the channel, I tuned in only to discover that it was Top Gear USA...:facepalm

    Needless to say, we love BBC Top Gear....after only a few minutes of having TG USA on, my fiancee looked at me and said that she felt bad for me for having to watch such lousy programming!!

    Anyway, after an hour and multiple times saying to myself that I needed to change to something else, I found myself STILL watching it and thinking..."this HAS to get better..." ...but it never did... [​IMG]

    So I got to thinking, what movies or shows have you guys/gals watched that lend themselves to this sort of ill-fated optimism??

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

    It's bad for Star Trek, it's bad in on itself, but I can't help but keep watching it. Even though I never want another product like TMP again, I still love it.

    Haven't in a while, but sometime in the last decade I watched TWO ENTIRE seasons of The Real Gilligan's Island "reality" show.

    It was SO bad, and SO staged, I'm embarrassed writing this post.

    My only fond memory of it was Nicole Eggert as "The Movie Star" Ginger.

    Almost any Sy-Fy movie. Gads they are awful......and yet I can't stop watching them once I start.

    Mostly in amazement that someone thought this would be a good idea. The horribly cheesy cgi effects. The horrible sets. The casts.

    A rational person would change the channel. But nooooooo.

    I'm a firm believer that when they changed the name to "Sy-Fy" they lost all claims to reputable programming!

    Terminator Salvation.

    I thought this movie was bad from the get-go. Kept getting worse until about halfway through (when Marcus escapes with help from Blair)- at that point I wanted to just get up and walk out.

    But I didn't as I still had "some" blind hope the film would improve, even just a wee bit...

    I stayed for the heart transplant.

    Never before had I ever wanted two hours of my life back so much. :facepalm [​IMG]

    I stayed for the heart transplant. :cry

    Totally scripted shows like Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Swamp People, Operation Repo, etc... rope me in all the time and each time I say to myself, "why did I just watch that??".

    Once great channels like History and A&E have really gone down hill in recent years.

    Movies like Terminator Salvation I want to be good soooo bad, and I watch them over and over hoping I'll find some redeeming quality but never do.

    There are two big reasons to watch Two Broke Girls, lol.

    Chillerama on Netflix streaming was extremely bad, but I couldn't stop watching. That film is about as schlocky as you can get.

    ROCKY V. My dad introduced me to the films one day, and I watched them all one after another. My dad didn't bother to warn me of the suckage that was Rocky V. As I watched it for the first time, I desperately hoped it would get better. But it didn't. It only got worse.

    Same thing with the third TMNT movie. God, even as a 10 year old, I knew that movie SUCKED. Biggest dissapointment of my childhood.

    EDIT: I'll go ahead and add the Double Dragon movie to that list. I begged my dad to take me to see it in theaters, since I was such a huge fan of the games. Holy CRAP... if you've never seen it, please, watch it. I'm serious. It's one of those movies that are so bad, they're hilarious.
