I do that too, but I never considered it to be something I should feel guilty about. Should I???

I wouldn't. Now if you'll excuse me I need to go make a ringtone of Chowder yelling "She's not my girlfriend!" and assign it to my brother's phone number.

Absolutely not...unless you work for a telco and can justify the high cost of low grade ringtones.

As the terminology "Guilty Pleasure" goes, I don't think anything I've listed is guilt-worthy, per se...but I like them, and I'm guilty of doing so. I've more or less perfected the art of making a great ringtone, and I'm glad that my phone supports that Rumkin uploader site that allows me to put them on my phone. :)

The Nanny.

I never watched this show in the original run, but now see it on Nick at Nite.

This is a standard sitcom with familiar plots and predictable punchlines. There is nothing smart or sophisticated or edgy about it. I tend to hate shows like this.

Something about Fran Drescher, despite the voice, make me want to watch- her looks, her personality, I don't know. Just don't tell anyone.

Karaoke. Can't get enough of it. And I get a strange look from damn near everyone when I tell them I like it.

I second the So You Think You Can Dance love, and raise you:

Ally McBeal - I'm a sucker for courtroom shows to begin with, but I absolutely can't get enough of that show. The writing is just so clever, and I actually care about the characters. I ordered the box sets from Australia a couple years ago before they started releasing here.

Daria - Still my favorite animated show of all time. Another one I had to get bootleg copies of from some website because I just needed to own them.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - My absolute favorite show of all time. I love me some Angel and Firefly too, but Buffy is the one that never fails to get some awkward pauses from friends when I say it's my favorite. I have a subscription to all the comics, own both videogames, have posters and shirts, and yeah... it's a sickness.

As for food, I'm not a vegetarian or anything, but I actually prefer boca burgers and *especially* portabello burgers to regular beef patties. It confounds my family and friends.

As a straight male, it's always hard to defend my love of everything Sondheim. I'm not a big musical theatre person in general, but as a former music major, damn that guy can write.

And then there's games... I absolutely love the Smackdown vs. Raw series and I spend all day sometimes at work trying to convince my co-worker that it's so many leagues beyond his King of Fighters and Soul Caliburs as far as how deep the combat is and the level of customization. I also love Viva Pinata, had to special order the Nancy Drew game for my Wii, and people look at me so strangely when I tell them one of my favorite series of all time is Monkey Island.

And then there's wrestling...

Jersey Shore. I haven't been a sucker for MTV's reality show stuff for years, but then here came Snooki and J-wow. Fuck me if they didn't hook me with their ladylike qualities.

You know- the albums that are terrible, but you love them anyway for one reason or another.

One that comes to mind for me is Vanilla Ice- To the Extreme. It features "I Love You" which just might be the worst love ballad I've ever heard:

http://www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=z9tH_​GX9oHo

The lyrics throughout the album are hillarious and mostly pretty bad (with the exception of "Ice, Ice Baby" which is still awesome even if it rips off the Queen/Bowie song shamelessly).

Give me this over MC Hammer's "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em" any day of the week. The sad part is that Ice really did have some level of talent but got chewed up and spit out by his label.

Another obvious example is Hulk Hogan's "Hulk Rules!" album. It's another laugh riot with such inspirational lyrics as:

Always go swimming with a buddy
Work real hard and always study!

Nearly every song on the album has to do with Hulk himself. Well worth the $5 or so it costs to get a new unsold copy on Amazon Marketplace. Guranteed to make you smile at least once or twice throughout.

So c'mon, what are your "so bad it's good" albums?

(Oops, didn't see this thread already existed- sorry about that).

Guilty Pleasures:

Movies

Halloween 3: This movie is horrible and is always blasted whenever anyone talks about the series, but I love it. It is just so bizarre. Masks with little chunks of Stonehenge in them that kill children. People ask me "How can you like that?" My answer is how can I not??

Superman 3: Another sequel that is ruins a good series. Why do I like it? First I love Richard Pryor. Next, Gus's scheme is so brilliant that Office Space used it as a major plot point. Finally, the fight between Clark Kent and Superman is awesome.

TV

90210 - Loved it. Was addicted to it until sometime after Kelly Kapowski came in.

Dawson's Creek - I crushed on Katie Holmes big time. I finally stopped when like ever parent on the show died.

Music

Barry Manilow - His entire catilogue is beyond gay, but I love damn near every song.

The Darkness - Don't think I should be guilty about them, but some might.

I watch the ABC Family show "Greek" on Hulu. It is pathetically cheesy, but I somehow started watching it a couple years ago and it's mildly amusing and I know that characters well enough to not have to pay much attention to it, so it's on to help pass the time while working on spreadsheets and whatnot.

My wife and I love the Lazy Town cd. It's some of the most insanely awesome dance-pop music I've ever heard. We blast that shit in the car, while exercising, and especially while baking pretty cakes. If she didn't like it too I might feel guilty about it, but because I've got a partner in crime, I'm not ashamed of it at all. A lot of our friends think it's weird though.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

Check out the Yo Gabba Gabba! CD. Seriously; it's some really great, catchy music.

The problem for me, outside of family and family friends, all my other friends and former co-workers enjoy most of what would be considered guilty pleasures. I would say Rivals Radio, but now that college football is over, I'll go with Star Wars: Clone Wars.

HELLCATS. And I feel no guilt about it. Maybe a little shame, but not really.

Oh, does porn count? Because then porn.

Everybody I saw Hot Tub Time Machine with thinks of it as "that funny movie with the Office guy." I think of it as "that funny movie where Dale Kettlewale says 'fuck' a lot."

I have to say that we watch this as well. I find it quite entertaining.
