Hmm as an early 30's male, I thought the whole series "Roswell" was phenomenal! It's clearly written for a late teen's/early 20's female audience, but the writing and the characters are phenomenal.

I only caught this show about 2 years ago and I'm sorry I never gave it a chance in its main run.

I also though "While you were sleeping" was a great movie.

I stopped watching Smallville around the 3rd season.

I can only take so much of Clark permanently losing his powers only to get then back at the end of the episode by some incredibly unlikely sheer bout of luck.

I think I gave up earlier than that, when it became obvious they were going to drag their asses to even put a pair of glasses on Clark.

I quit Smallville after 2 seasons.

Then a friend told me that it was almost certainly cancelled, so I might as well watch the final 3 seasons that he had downloaded... Which I did, and then Smallville was renewed another 5 times.

How do I buy a body pillow shaped like Chloe?

I am still asking for Cassidy Freeman to be my body pillow. I don't care.

Yes, I agree, where the hell is Longmire season 3?

TVcountdown tells me: 38 days.

I'm the target audience for nothing, and I enjoy lots of stuff.

I'm not the target audience for The Notebook and I actually thought it was really good. Similar movie: The Vow. Liked that too.

I tried watching Frozen, but it was a terrible movie and I didn't make it very long into it. Happily, my wife had good taste too and she hated it as well.

As a hardcore Superman fan, Smallville was a 10-year exercise in masochism for me. I couldn't NOT watch it, because it was Superman. But about 80% of it made me want to punch my television because it was so NOT Superman. Ugh.

Chloe was all kinds of cute, but I'll take my body pillow in the shape of Willow Rosenberg, thanks.

I think the only reason I was able to enjoy Smallville as much as I did was because it was pretty much my first introduction to the Superman mythos. At the time I started watching it I pretty just the knew the basic stuff that everyone with general pop culture knowledge knows.

From my perspective, "Roswell" is one of the stock characters in the Hoyle computer games. And I definitely dislike him, because he's obnoxious.
