Lots of stuff I'm sure. I love teen dramas like 90210 and Degrassi. Especially old school cheesy as all heck Degrassi. And I enjoy laugh tracks or studio audiences even though everyone hates them. It makes the shows less awkward to me.

And I read teen fiction like the Divergent series. I read all four Twilight books in about 3 weeks about 5 years ago and I really like them. Hated the movie though (only saw the first one).

I love dress up games. I'm not in to fashion and I barely care about dressing myself, but for some reason I adore those games. Like the ones made for kids where you have a doll and some outfits to pick from. Whether online or in sticker books or in video games.

Speaking of which, I like a ton of games that a lot of gamers hate. Like Hyperdimesnion Neptunia and Star Ocean 4. I also love matchmaker games. I want to matchmake everyone in video games.

You need to stop judging my fetishes, you said this was a safe zone.

But seriously, off the top of my head, I can't think of any guilty pleasures. If I like something, then who cares? Sure, not everything I like is some sort of high art, or greatly sophisticated masterpiece, but I don't care. There's things that I like that maybe other people would consider guilty pleasures, but I unashamedly enjoy them. Apparently Shuai things I should feel guilty for my love of death metal, but I don't. As I'm sure anyone who has talked to me about my musical tastes already knows. He'd probably say the same about my affinity for gory horror movies and mindless slasher flicks. To me they're just violent movies I enjoy. Maybe I'll think of something in time, but for the most part I just enjoy the things I happen to like and not give a shit if I should or should not like it. Life is too short to feel guilty about the things you like.

Trashy romance novels. And trashy horror novels. And trashy sci-fi novels. In fact my MA thesis was titled "In Defence of the Potboiler".

Also any excuse whatsoever to wear fancy dress.

Fancy dress as in "rarr, I am a dinosaur" not as in wearing a ballgown. But actually, either is fun.

And there's nothing wrong with Downton Abbey!

I have impeccable taste in everything, unlike the rest of the peasantry here.

Also Nicolas Cage is the great visionary of our times.

Look, I think that if it's good enough for Happy Hogan, then it's not guilty. Let alone not-so-guilty.

Well, if the catagory is ''things I like while knowing full well they're pretty bad'', then the first thing to come to mind is RWBY.



The animation is shabby at the best of times, the plot is usually paper-thin and takes a hike everytimes things seem like they start progressing, it's riddled with clichés (the opening episode actually seems to be collecting them- I counted no less than 4 major show opening clichés in about 10 minutes), the characters are shallow at best and completely empty at worst. Needless to say, not only is this not high art, this is actually one of the few shows where I daresay that I could have done a better job at the storyline writing (not weird, given that the show's concept was made by an animator and not a writer). There are some good ideas here, but the execution is pretty terrible even when considering the minimal budget. The pacing is, as mentioned, horrible as well.

However, it's fun. Fun only once, because I avoid rewatching it as much as possible (the flaws start glaring so strongly it's blinding), but fun nonetheless. It's colorful and both the characters and the weapons they use are outlandish in the coolest possible way. Mounty Oum, who sadly passed away sometime ago, was a great choreochapher and almost every action scene is perfect, despite the limited animation. It's got some good humor as well, even if some jokes fall so flat I'm pretty sure they'd have their ribs shattered.

Also, it has a gun that doubles as a high-impact sniper rifle. I require no further defense.

I break into people's houses at night and arrange creepy dolls around the place.

Right now, my guilty pleasure is Gotham, the Batman prequel television series that's slowly grown to become a sloppy-ass mess of pointless story arcs, unbelievable characters, baffling decisions, and the pacing and focus of someone who had his or her first beer spiked with acid and gasoline.

I'm only watching it at this point because I've lost hope of them reaching their peak again, and I just want to see where the train wrecks next.
