Three Nails To Protect Us
We had music and gun guilty pleasures. I searched but did not find one for movies or TV shows.
My wife always watched with her grandmother growing up. We got married and both started working nights we’d have lunch and watch Days of Our Lives then take a nap before heading off to work.
Took me a bit but man you just get sucked into the characters and the fact that the story just keeps going and going. Characters and actors get swapped in and out and you don’t care. You just keep watching.
I haven’t watched in quite some time as I don’t work nights anymore. I saw today they are pulling it from broadcast television and only available on Peacock Streaming.
I think that when those dark voices start calling our name in the back of our head we need to remind those voices who we belong to!

Gilligan's Island. The Sundance TV channel runs "blocks" on Tuesday mornings, and all day Saturday over the July 4th weekend. Objectively it's silly as hell, but is a kind of relief from the daily grind. I also find the props - the huts, vehicles, bicycle-pedal-powered machines, even a scale mock-up of the Minnow pulled with ropes to simulate pitching and rolling in heavy seas, all made to look cobbled together with native materials - to be fascinating.This message has been edited.

The Gilmore Girls. There: I said it.
Wife and I just finished A Year in the Life this evening.

Critics panned it etc., but I smile and laugh the whole time, every time.

For years I worked a 12 hour night shift that often turned into 14-15 hour shift. 50 + pages from the pager around my neck, dozens of emails, a handful of phone calls, often covering 8-10 miles distance at work each night, one problem after another, it was a go go go atmosphere every single night.
By the time I got home in the AM I was dead dog tired, but still over-amped on adrenaline, wondering if I had missed something important. I needed to get some sleep that day before returning to work that night to do it all again...so, I needed some mindless distraction to decompress by while eating breakfast... so, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Don't judge me.

Those are some of my favorites, and there's not the least bit of guilt involved.
Guilty pleasues now, those might be kdramas I've watched just because they had Joy (from Red Velvet) in them.
If Forgetting Sarah Marshall or, Scott Pilgrim vs The World is on, I stop and end up getting distracted

Right now, I’d have to say “The Office”.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
Yup, the wife likes Sarah Marshall, not so much Scott Pilgrim
The Office is our go to, after work, 'white noise' while getting dinner ready & kids to bed.
The Enemy's gate is down.
I may or may not sit down with my wife as she watches Hallmark Mysteries. Depends on the lead actress. Alison Sweeney (Sami from Days) sometimes, but my new favorite is Sarah Lind.
I will also join my wife when she is watching the 5 hour Colin Firth - Jennifer Ehle Pride & Prejudice.
When we owned a restaurant opening was at 4:00 so set-up-the-bar time was spent with the TV on at 3:00 tuned to General Hospital. Nearly 4 years of that every afternoon but when we sold I quit cold turkey.
Lauren Graham was so darned cute in that.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Blackmore,

Maverick - I have to watch it every Sat at 9:00 AM.

Yup. And Hallmark Christmas movies. They're all the same, but I like them. It's nice to watch something wholesome on TV once in awhile.

The old TV show Emergency with Randolph Mantooth and Julie London. I remember watching it as a young kid--I even had the toy fireman helmet! I catch reruns of it on the FETV channel. It really is terrible, but I still watch. I wish I still had my hat.
As far as movies go, it's Twister. I can't pass it by when it's on.
|Min-Chin-Chu-Ru... Speed with Glare|
It used to be the original NCIS TV series. We would watch it all the while commenting to each other about how corny it had become.
My wife and I both agreed that Mark Harmon's last episode (where he stays in Alaska) was also the appropriate time for us to say goodbye.
I think my new guilty pleasure will be The Boys series on Amazon.
As far as movies, probably Grosse Point Blank.
