Is it just me, or does everyone have inbuilt genre prejudices?
What are yours? And have you had a long-standing prejudice that has been broken down, either abruptly or after much coaxing?
I never used to watch/read period dramas, until I moved into a house of five girls during uni and I was forced to watch six hours of
I also used to think I wasn't a big fan of the whodunnit, but then I started watching Miss Marple. Although I haven't really branched out from that, unless you call The Wire a whodunnit, which it probably is.
With books there are quite a few on the genre blacklist: romance, horror and fantasy are all no-nos. I just can't handle the melodrama.
And film? I hardly ever watch action/thrillers or romantic comedies. I'm such a cliche, you'll always find me up the drama/art house aisle.
TV: Really not a sitcom person, and not big on the nature docos. Also hate special feature TV with a passion. You know, special feature TV of the "Michael Jackson has died let's replay all the footage we've ever taken of him interspersed with lame commentary" variety.
