    I wasn't sure if I should put this in Movies & TV or Video ganes & tech, so here it goes:

    So, do you hate something that is loved by a very large amount of people but really can't find a reason to hate it?
    For me, the 2 things I HATE with intense anger is:
    Zelda. An elf wearing a dress with overrated games.
    And most importantly, Naruto. Jumpsuit wearing spaz.

    Everybody has something they hate for no reason. What is yours?

    This is probably gonna get me banned from the boards, or at least garner me the stink eye but I personally can't stand almost anything from Joss Whedon. Buffy, Firefly, you name it.

    Tomb Raider. Games and films both. It's bollocks. It's always been bollocks, and it always will be.

    Meeneether,

    I tried, even bought season sets for Battlestar Galactica & Firefly to try them out, but it was more yawn inducing than anything, and later pawned them.
    Even watched Serenity 3 times , and still nothing.

    The first season of Lost was the only thing that pulled me in lately.

    Lord of the Rings. 3 of the most boring films I've watched.
    Naruto - the endless amount of cosplayers only make me even more angry.

    Oh and Disney's High School Musical and associated franchises, but that should go without saying :D

    Way too many to list.

    In fact, Transformers may be the only widely-popular franchise I DON'T hate.



    #1 hate spot currently belongs to Twilight.

    Damn, I've got a lot:

    -American Idol
    -Rock Band/Guitar Hero
    -Naruto (if it's supposed to be a show about ninjas, why the hell does the main character wear ORANGE AND BLUE!?)
    -High School Musical (someone kill Disney,. QUICK!)
    -Heroes
    -every other reality show
    -Hanna Montana (don't worry, she'll become the next Britney Spears soon enough-complete with being a drunken idiot, and a child to not mother)
    -Yu-Gi-Oh
    -Nickelodeon shows aimed at teens (iCarly, Drake and Josh-I swear, Miranda Cosgrove's face looks like a rubber mask that you'd buy at a Halloween store)
