Reality TV makes me sick, stupid! (90 Day Fiance, The Duggars, RHOBH etc)
Soap Operas
The View or any female centric talk show usually makes me wish I hadn't done it!
The Doctor on ABC (Granted the idea of an autistic person being a Dr. is a great premise but no hospital would hire an autistic person as someone would sue and it just wouldn't happen.)
No religious programming, as I can't deal with the fake!

Seasons 3 and 4 of the WD were my personal favorites.

And I LOVE the Handmaids Tale. The first season was straight from the book. amazing show. love post apocalyptic dyspotian books, movies and TV shows.

Can do without the Kardashian/Jenner "reality" shows. Not overly fond of real housewives either. Don't understand the hype.

Aww, I LOVE The Walking Dead! (Although I admit that the first three seasons were better than recent ones.)

As for what I WOULDN'T watch:
Anything with the Kartrashians
The Bachelor/ette
Cop shows
Survivor, Naked & Afraid and their ilk
Sitcoms
Daytime talk shows

I don't watch a lot of TV in general, and generally I like a lot of science, history, nature, or other non-fiction. (Though like a lot of you, I'm not into "reality" shows!)

When it comes to fiction, I'm not terribly picky about specific topics - and I actually like "genre" stuff, like sci-fi, fantasy, and even sometimes zombies (but there has to be more to the plot than just - hey, zombies!)

Oddly, since going to law school, I usually can't stand shows with a lot of legal practice - I'm a litigator, so it's particularly hard to suspend my disbelief and get into the plot. I'm too busy saying - why the heck didn't you file an XXX motion?? This was totally foreseeable! Or worse, why are you *at all* surprised that defendant's counsel filed a totally obvious motion to exclude evidence that he'd basically be disbarred for NOT filing??? (Law & Order was particularly guilty of that second thing.) Of course, I get that they're trying to tell a story, so the "law practice" details are secondary - and most viewers won't know the difference (or care) anyway.

I wonder if doctors have the same problem watching medical shows! (Which I usually enjoy... probably because my knowledge of medicine is relatively limited!)

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)

Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

I don’t like gory shows so I skip anything that is violent.

I remember my hubby wanted me to watch a movie a few years back and it looked violent so I said, “I don’t want to watch one of those shoot ‘em up movies.” Strangely enough the title of the movie was Shoot ‘Em Up starring Clive Owen and he spends most of the movie carrying a baby while doing all kinds of crazy stunts with guns etc and they never get hurt. Everything was so over the top I thought it was hilarious! Not sure if it was meant to be a comedy.

I’m ok with sex and swearing. emoticon

Funny, I watched Handmaid’s Tale, but I avoid everything else on the list.

I have a couple shows I watch, but I learned the pattern of the gore/violence, and I can mute or fast forward through it.


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.

I agree with Elaine - zombie type things. Also some of the reality shows.

I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

I'll never watch any series that has a blood of murders or bloody scenes in it.

"Reality" shows... which are as far from real as it gets.
Daytime soap operas... what a waste of time.
Fake, dramatized "medical" shows... half truths and product hawking.
