Matters of Taste

When was the last time a movie, a book, or a television show left you cold despite all your friends (and/or all the critics) raving about it? What was it that made you go against the critical consensus?

When was the last time I was left cold by a form of media: movie, book, or TV show?

The five minutes I saw of “Breaking Bad” really turned me off to it.  I’m not going into it anymore.

Movie?  The last movie I saw was “Her” and I loved it.

Book?  I’ve read a few bad ones in my time.  Nothing that I rail about every day.

Usually if I go against critical consensus it is because I disagree with something in the content.  I know most people who say they can’t stand what media I regularly engage in don’t get why I  like it and the same is true vice versa.
