I need something as background noise, but not something that's good enough to actually pay close attention to.
I find myself thinking "it has to get better, it will get better. The plot just hasn't finished building up, but once it does it'll be worth it." A few times this has worked. Most of the time it makes me have shit taste.
They got me threw season 3&4
>took advice from men not realizing that their tastes were heavily influenced by their dicks and how cute the girls were.
>wanted to be able to participate in discussions about it (eg: read Naruto for this purpose).
If I don't drop it by the end of the first episode, I just blast through the remaining 11/23/whatever episodes, even if it's fucking terrible. No idea why.
I manage to get some enjoyment out of total shit by giving a sarcastic running commentary over it and then laughing to myself like a retard, so that helps.
I enjoy bad shit.
As a gamer, I was expecting something right up my alley. It didn't come close at all.
>never dropped a show until the ending
>tfw still watching Pokemon
Someone kill me.
