I’m having one of those “nothing I do actually matters” mood swings that are really hard to see rationally through. Probably not the best time in the world to write the post that I’ve been thinking about writing here this morning. Maybe I’ll give it a shot though.

Since this is the week of season finales here on U.S. TV, there’s been a LOT of fandom stuff going around. Now, the only show that I actually watch on the day it comes out (and it’s only been the past month and a half, which is when I finally got caught up) is Supernatural. Yes, that show that a few months ago I made a whole post bitching about how I loved the show and hated the characters? Totally and completely obsessed ever since Castiel showed up in Season 3, not gonna lie. And now the characters are my babies and I adore them so. But that’s not the point here.

The point is that I watched the SPN finale on Wednesday night and thought it was fantastic. Just a really, really great ending to the season. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me smash my hands on the keyboard incoherently during the show. It had everything that I needed to be entertained, and the second it was over I wanted Season 9. But I’ve seen a ton of wank on Tumblr and elsewhere about how it was the most horrible season finale ever.

This happens to me a lot, where I think that something is wonderful and most people thought it was terrible. Which brings me around to what I wanted to talk about. I think I am just easily entertained. Because there is a slew of things that I LOVE to watch or read that the general opinion of them is that they’re crap. Including but not limited to:

  • All the Michael Bay Transformers Movies
  • Ultraviolet
  • The Core
  • About a million 70’s and 80’s cartoons
  • That latest version of The Three Musketeers that had airships and Orlando Bloom
  • The third Pirates of the┬áCaribbean┬ámovie
  • A generous amount of the webcomics on the Bad Webcomics Wiki
  • The Green Lantern movie

And sometimes I find myself wondering: Am I really just that easily amused? Or do I actually have terrible taste in entertainment? If something makes me smile, keeps me excited or entertained for a few hours, and maybe gives me an idea or two for a future scene, then I tend to be okay with it. I don’t need everything that I see to be deep and meaningful, sometimes I just want to see stuff blow up and over-the-top action scenes. And that’s not a bad thing, right?

And I…. don’t even know where this post was going any more. See, I shouldn’t try to engage in conversation while hormonal. I’m not good at people on a normal day of the week. XD

Are you, too, easily entertained like me? Or do you need more substance to your entertainment?
