Buzz In: What Beloved Show Are You Just Not That Into?

I have a friend who just can't figure out why people are so in love with Glee — she thinks the plots are too outrageous and watching the cast sing just makes her feel embarrassed for the actors. My best friend's boyfriend thinks that Mad Men is unwatchably boring. I've tried time and again to extol the virtues of both these shows on the haters, but they just will not budge.

These two shows are getting tons of press recently, and it seems like I can't go anywhere without hearing people gush about them, but as with everything, the feeling is not universal. I've always felt sort of guilty for my inability to fall in love with Twin Peaks, which has the same sort of status in many people's hearts. So I want to know — are there any totally hyped up or beloved shows that you are just not that into?

Check out more on these shows in our community like The Glee Club and Mad Men groups!

Dancing With The Stars is painfully hard for me to watch. I don't know, maybe I'm a little turned-off by it's cult following of middle aged women that spend their time reading gossip collumns and doing crosswords.. As has been previously said, shows like Mad Men really need to be watched from the start. There's so much depth in to the characters that can only be understood if you've "gotten to know" them through the previous seasons. I think the thing that makes Glee work is that the actors are all legitimately talented. There's something so nice about watching a show like that, with REAL SINGERS!

I always HATED Everybody Loves Raymond. And never got into Seinfeld and Friends ... ok if nothing else is on I guess. I don't care about any CSI-like or crime programs except for Criminal Minds. Lost and Heroes might have been good if I'd gotten into them. They didn't hook me in the first season and there was too much else out there.

I'm not into any of them. I've never seen even one episode of the shows listed (and then some).

I think I have more shows that I can't stand compared to the shows that I love and watch. I've noticed that I mainly watch a lot of crime/law-oriented shows like the CSI and Law & Order franchise, with some new ones like Bones, Lie to Me, The Mentalist and Castle thrown into the mix. Until recently, I didn't watch any of the medical dramas. I now watch Mercy and I have caught a few episodes of House (didn't watch it from the start which sort of kills it for me) but on the whole, just haven't got into it. Especially Grey's Anatomy. I never got into Lost and absolutely could never stand Friends.

Two and 1/2 Men, any "teenager show"-Gossip Girl, OC, 90210. American Idol, Dancing with the Stars...but I love SYTYCD. But I agree with TS, if you don't watch shows from the very beginning then you can't really get into them. I loved Grey's Anatomy when it first started, but once they made George a cheater and now basically forced him off the show...I don't like it as much and I watch it simply b/c I've always watched it. If someone started with the 4th season and on, I wouldn't see the appeal of it either.

Entourage (I liked it at first but I'm over it), 30 Rock, Two and a Half Men, Desperate Housewives (if I wanted to see a bunch of psycho slutty housewives I'd hang out at Neiman's in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon), Lost (I was done after episode 7), 24 (done after first season), Prison Break (once they broke I couldn't figure out the reason for the show), Mad Men ( I understand the appeal but I just can't get into it)

Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters, anything that could be equated to reality TV, 90210 (the new one), CSI, CSI Miami (the only one I find watchable is CSI NY), The Mentalist is annoying, Entourage... The list goes on forever....

For me, it´s definitely many people claim this to be the best comedy ever, and I...just don´t get it...I hate all the characters, and I mean HATE them. Elaine is beyond annoying, Jerry is so smug and full of himself (and as an actor, he just sucks, you can see him chuckling along with all the jokes because he thinks he is the funniest guy ever), George is plain creepy and Kramer, OMG I cannot handle him, he is so stupid...sorry for the rant, I just hate this show so much

Definitely Two and a Half Men. Like someone else said, it is sexist dribble. There are other but my big one is the Real Housewives shows. They are so completely awful! I just don't understand how anyone watches them.

Scrubs. It sometimes gets a giggle or two out of me, but that's it. I just don't think it's that funny. It seems to try way too hard

Arrested Development. I just don't get what the BFD is about that show.

American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. Boring! I'd rather watch America's Best Dance Crew.

I do not get Family Guy at all. The Simpsons is wittier.

Thanks for remembering 30 rock. I simply DO not get all the hype. I try to watch a few episodes, and I couldn't even giggle a little.

Lil k, I'm also with you in that I think Ted is sort of annoying. Though after this long he's growing on me. I keep thinking another actor would have been better in the part. Like Jason Bateman when he was younger, maybe. Lily also bugs me. But I love the other three.

Pretty much all of them. It's the same thing basically repackaged with different titles.

I definitely agree, TS. I watched seasons 1-3 on DVD recently, while I was packing, and I noticed more than ever how many things came up again and again.

Grey's Anatomy is painful, and I don't like Dancing With The Stars/So You Think You Can Dance either.

Also, three really popular shows I've tried watching but can't: Ugly Betty (too cheesy), The Office (I don't get it), and 30 Rock (weird because I love Tracey Morgan/SNL)

I don't get Mad Men. I want to love it, but I can't. I think a lot of people don't "get" shows if they don't watch from the beginning. How I Met Your Mother has so many running gags and references to past episodes, you wouldn't get as much out of it if you didn't watch from the beginning.

I cannot stand American Idol. Boringtown. When there's more time allotted for commercials than for content, count me out. Most reality shows were really only interesting in their first seasons (Real World, Road Rules, Survivor, The Bachelor, etc.), so I'm really over watching those. Desperate Housewives is another show I can't stand. I've tried watching it many times, but I just can't identify with anyone on the show. And Teri Hatcher's character is BEYOND annoying.
