A while back, we did an episode on stuff that’s wildly popular, but we just can’t quite get into it. The time has come for the other half of the equation … the things we love that other people hate. Not quite like a guilty pleasure (we’ve talked about those, too). Other people like those things;  they just don’t want to admit it.

  • When someone loves something that’s universally reviled, like “Lady in the Water”
  • “Signs,” “The Village,” and other late M. Night movies
  • “Barton Fink” and other Cohen Brothers films that are better-liked
  • “Joe vs. the Volcano”
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girls
  • “Promethius”
  • The “Star Wars” prequels
  • The “Pride and Prejudice” with Kiera Knightly and the “Little Women” with Winona Ryder
  • The seasons of “The Simpsons” people say are bad
  • The seasons of Buffy people don’t like
  • The ending of “Angel”
  • “Corpse Bride”
  • Disney’s “Atlantis”
  • The last “Hunger Games” book
  • “Brotherhood of the Wolf”
  • Locus Magazine (which is not a hate at all)
  • SweeTarts
  • Anchovies
  • Beets
  • Skipping sleep
  • Mowing the lawn
  • Listener mail! From Sarah about our Pinterest episode!
