I too watched Burn Notice when it was still running new episodes. Gotta love the cheese factor.

I'll throw Bar Rescue in as my choice. It's so fake and over the top but the wife and I love the trashy characters and Jon Taffer's neck veins.

Burn Notice is a terrible good show because the acting isn't great and it can be overly cheesy. I like it because I can have it on and not have to pay complete attention and still know what's happening. You aren't going to miss a scene in an episode and have no clue what's happening after. Also it's a good storyline and after watching all the seasons I'm pretty sure I'm qualified to be a spy.

I have started watching The Circle on Netflix. I have never watched one of these trashy reality television series before, but this one has me hooked for some reason.

Walker, Texas Ranger.

Good always wins!

Cheesy beyond cheesy, but I like it.

OK, I am going to break the rules and give you the worst movies that I watch whenever I get the chance...

Killer Shrews (1950's) - Dogs dressed up in shag carpet remnants to look like giant killer shrews terrorize people on an island. I watched in theaters as a kid and it gave me nightmares!

Final Jeopardy (1980's) - John Boy and the girl who shot JR star in this (absurd series of unfortunate events) movie about a young couple stuck overnight in the sewers of Detroit being chased by gangs.

They're both available on YouTube - you should watch.
