lesbiassparrow: (love is never wrong)
1. Bad TV. All varieties. All languages. All cultures. I have never seen a piece of bad TV I would not stop to watch.

2. Man-pain, especially if it involves shrieking at the skies while cradling the corpse of your dead lover. Though I also have a fondness for the stoic Jason Bourne sort of manpain. This to me is like fine wine. The wine of agony in all flavours is quite delicious.

3. Korean dramas. The sweet, sweet crack of Kdrama is beyond parallel.

4. Amnesia plots. There is nothing in my opinion as good as a completely melodramatic amnesia plot, especially if amnesia was caused by evil step-sibling running you over in car in incident that also gives you eye cancer. (Oh, Stairway to Heaven you ruined me forever for all other amnesia plots.)

5. Merlin. Gwen and Arthur and their epic love FTW.

6. Tragic spies who never smile and are always depressed (see: Tom Quinn.) I also like the women who leave them, thus causing even more tragic spy agony.

7. People in shiny armour who release Kraken.

8. Mini-ninjas

9. Love triangles (DON'T JUDGE ME. I KNOW IT'S A SICKNESS.)

10. Plucky reporter types who are clearly in over their head, but just keep ploughing on anyway.

11. Singing and dancing with 50 extras bouncing around beside you at key plot points. Bonus if you have an elephant somewhere involved.

12. People walking tragically away from other people in the rain because it CAN NEVER EVER BE

13. Reluctant heroes who are just ordinary people who step up.

14. Horses. And galloping off on horses even if clearly the person has a 50 mile journey to go on and they should really be walking the damn thing because otherwise it will drop dead long before they get there.

13. Emo music that plays over tragic montages of memory. Extra points if Evanescence is involved.

14. FORBIDDEN LOVE OF SOME SORT.

There are other things I like, but I think I have revealed enough bad taste for now. Er, so what do you like? (Come on, your taste cannot possibly be worse than mine.)

Xena!

I just got season 1 one of this and it is quite awesomely, epically bad. THERE IS AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF LEAPING AND SHRIEKING AND IMPROBABLE SWORDFIGHTING.

ALSO GABRIELLE MUST LOSE HER BLOOD INNOCENCE AND BECOME THE BRIDE OF MORPHEUS. IT'S QUITE WONDERFUL.

ETA: There is an astonishing and wonderful amount of bad hair. Such lovely, lovely bad hair. Also I am pretty sure someone just said 'my son died in childbirth.' Which is quite a feat really.

ETA 2: XENA AND GABRIELLE HAVE FOUND A BABY. IF HIJINKS DON'T ENSUE I WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.

ETA 3: And this is completely offtopic, but if you ever want to watch the most depressing film ever, you should all watch Kings, an Irish language film that manages to make most Russian novels look cheery.
