    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.

    Revenge is one of my favorite shows.

    I'm so glad I didn't start reading the female lead UF series like The Hollows and Kate Daniels series until I started using an E-reader/tablet. Some of the places like Wal-Mart tend to put them in with all the trashy romance novels, and I always feel kind of weird picking through that area of the book department.

    That was another thing that I was nice about e-readers, I don't have to worry about getting weird looks or sarcastic comments about what I'm reading since people can't see the cover.

    I'm thinking I might have to check out Phineas and Ferb sometime. I'm always seeing tons of stuff for it, and I lot of people seem to like it.

    If you're old enough to remember the Nickelodeon show Rocco's Modern Life, Phineas and Ferb has a similar tone to it (since it was created by the same people responsible for RML), although it's far less 'out there' than RML was.
