What TV shows do you watch religiously?

Right now, mine are:

Castle
Grimm
Once Upon a Time
Walking Dead
Elementary
Revolution

I've recently been exposed to Emily Owens, MD. I like that one. My best friend always says that she reminds him of me. The more I watch it, the more I can see why.

There are others that I watch, but I'm not heartbroken if I miss an episode. Those shows seem to be Arrow, Chicago Fire, and any of the Monday night CBS comedies.

Didn't you just binge watch GoT?

And considering all of the talking heads and journalists you're familiar with i'd imagine you spend a ton of time watching cable network news too.

I bet you watch a bunch of Hannity and that other douchebag with a punchable face too.

I watch ID fairly frequently, usually late at night in bed where I get drowsy and eventually nod off. Then I turn it off.

No more than three hours a week total.

Not really religiously though. I consider most of those movies that are in series form ( often binged watched in a few weeks) not something like the list in the first post. ID is not watched religiously if you note. I do watch late at night but only sporadically. I do watch movies on Netflix including in serial form, but it is not done religiously but at certain times of the year.

I thought this was a different thread than where that was posted. Nice to see you pay so much attention to me. I am flattered.

It's called cringe comedy. Either you get it or you don't. Or maybe more precisely either you find humor in the pain and conflict or you don't.

The key is usually finding a nugget of relatability.

For Larry, he's an asshole, but he's an asshole who's often right about stupid social conventions. Goodbye hugs, four way stop signs, how many free samples you get until you have to pick a flavor and buy something, holding an elevator, talking on a cell phone in crowded enclosed spaces; Larry picks at them and punctures the absurdity without flinching.

Ray Ramano is similar about the pain of a hen-pecked husband who's still a momma's boy, although truly it's just his voice that's grating, not his whole persona. Either you find humor in a head of a household paralyzed by trying to simultaneously placate a wife and a mother who are often at odds, or you don't.

Garry Schandling isn't really fair, because he's grating because he's kind of uncovering an untold truth of show business, that often the happy smiling face of late night comedy is a vain neurotic mess when the camera is off. It's part straight comedy, part expose of Hollywood fictionalizing of onscreen personas. So the nugget of relatability is 'I knew those guys were fakers, nobody's always that chipper!!'

Another I'd add to cringe comedy is David Brent/Michael Scott as the branch managers of their respective versions of The Office. I won't protract this by going over their characters again. Hopefully, most can see the structural parallels.

I know what cringe comedy is, and that has nothing to do with it. Different comedies make you cringe for different reasons. That's not the issue. The issue is that the main characters are over the top with whining and complaining. That's what makes me cringe. Totally different from the Office (which I loved by the way, both versions). In the office the cringe is for the over the top character traits BEYOND being constant sources of bitching and moaning.

Fine, you get and enjoy good cringe comedy, but feel that Curb doesn't do it well. We'll all have to live with your assessment.

I never said it was bad. I simply said I didn't understand why others liked it. You're the one that got the attitude about teaching me what cringe comedy was. Next time I'll ask you before I decide I don't like something to make sure it's OK.

What the actual ****.

You take the time to post that you DO NOT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.

I explain what YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

You retort that you understand everything and still think it's shit, even though it's a widely and long popular show

AND I'M THE ONE WITH ATTITUDE?

Which is it, do you NOT UNDERSTAND why it's such a popular show? Or do you UNDERSTAND why and still disagree?

And if you 'understand' the humor of the show, and still don't 'understand' why anyone likes it, how in the hell is that different than saying the show is bad?

Check yourself and ponder how you come off.

Wow. Are you OK? I know I don't post on here often, but I normally don't see you get this angry?

My response to your condescending cringe comedy explanation was simply that your answer was not what I did not understand about why people like the show. Cringe comedy is supposed to be about the actions and dialogue and situations that make you cringe. They don't, he does.

What I don't understand is why people like to watch characters like that. It's not about the show, it's about the character and/or actor portraying the character. As I explained in my first post. Maybe it would have been more clear if I didn't use the word cringe to describe my reaction, as it is not based around "cringe comedy".

Why would I be angry?

You say 'I never understood'
I take the time to explain EXACTLY what you say you never understood
You thank me by calling me a condescending prick.
