The only downside to having the ability to (occasionally) work from home comes in the lack of distractions.  Even though I generally don’t have a LOT of time between duties, I can read a little snippet of internet news or watch a few moments of cooking shows, something that my remote desktop doesn’t allow for.  Fortunately, I found ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ on a streaming platform today, guaranteeing that I’d have something that I knew well enough to not find distracting but that I’ll probably never get tired of.  I admit the show’s flaws, but I can still half-watch it for hours, providing more than enough entertainment to carry me through eight hours of whatever it is that I actually do, leading to today’s legendary query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) had previously done okay with ‘Scrubs’, ‘Victorious’ and a slew of Looney Tunes cartoons, asking: What pop culture favorites are you certain you’ll never get tired of?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I’m fairly certain I could tire of anything, given enough time. Similarly, my interest in revisiting old favorites can fade when new installments significantly decline in quality.

    So, I’ll say that my interest will always favor certain genres and tropes and their intersection and overlap:
    – Science Fiction that takes extrapolations of society and technology and explores their effects on individuals
    – Mysteries, particularly with adolescent detectives
    – Morality plays with protagonists who strive to be on the side of ‘good.’

    I think that I won’t tire of pop culture that plays with and explores these things.

    So, right now, Doctor Who.

    Several retro video games too.
