That being said, with age I have to say I've come to enjoy a certain type of bad media: the "so bad it's good". I've come to love ridiculously, hilariously bad movies, as well as other pieces of media that just fall short of usual quality guidelines.
So, without further adieu, let's kick off this list with a generally hated episode of an otherwise cult classic series:
Like every character on Lost, a flashback episode was inevitable, and like everything related to Nikki and Paulo, this episode was bound to be reviled. However, while I won't claim that Exposé, a.k.a. an hour with Nikki and Paulo, is one of the show's greatest hours (it's not), its cheesiness has always made it one of my personal favorites.
It's silly soap opera stuff handled in the broadest manner possible. While so many people wanted Lost to be so serious all the time, I often found their sillier diversion episodes to be more of a breath of fresh air. This one is one of the best, as it realizes how silly and over the top the premise of the show is and just goes with it, while injecting a lot of cheese and dark humor into two of the show's most reviled characters before killing them off in the most horrible way possible. So, while it may be bad in a lot of ways, it's a personal favorite of mine.
And as always, please drop me a line on Facebook or Twitter! I'm big into liking/following back!
