Oftentimes, because I know a great deal about certain bits of television, movies and such folderal, people are surprised when they discover the gaps in my pop culture knowledge. Even one who takes great pride in pop culture ephemera, as I do, has “blind spots.” I have never seen an episode of ‘Lost,’ for instance. It’s not even like I’ve been avoiding it, either, I’ve simply never crossed paths with the show at a point where I could sit and watch. Of course, the older I get, the more this sort of thing ends up happening. For several years, I had never seen ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ (something which has finally been rectified) but I have still never seen an episode of ‘Mad Men,’ ‘Modern Family,’ or that thing with Zooey Deschanel, and I probably won’t see ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ until it hits free cable in 2015 or so.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds you that your favorite band sucks, asking:
Leaving aside things you intentionally avoid, what high-profile pop-culture is in YOUR blind spot?
