What do you enjoy that you aren't the "target audience" for? (Be nice)

Over the last couple years I've started to really enjoy both adult and YA urban fantasy, and YA dystopia stories. I know I'm technically not their "target audience", but I really don't care, I'm going to read and watch these kinds of movies, TV shows, and books as long as I continue to enjoy them.
So is there anything you enjoy that you're not the "target audience" for?
And let's please keep this civil, no nasty comments about what other people post.

I'm a male 18 to 49. Is there anything I'm not the target audience for?

I have a soft spot for quirky romantic comedies.
