All my friends know I love court shows, or as I call them, “judge shows.” I think I’ve watched them all–Judge Mathis, Judge Joe Brown, The People’s Court, Judge Alex, and the list goes on. But if I am at home at 4:00pm Central Time, I will most certainly watch Judge Judy.
I know, I know, people say Judge Judy is mean. I guess I’d have to agree with that assessment. In fact, that was the very reason that I didn’t like her for a long time. She is short-tempered. She yells at people. She calls them idiots. If she doesn’t like someone, she says so. She has no problem telling people that she is smarter than they are. She seems to perpetually be in a bad mood. But there is something about the “cranky goodness” of Judge Judy that I love.
While I watch the show faithfully, there is absolutely no way I would go on it and subject myself to public ridicule. But it’s fun to watch the people who do.

Have you ever watched a television show with your mouth gaped open and your eyes wide, as you stared in utter confusion and extreme interest at the television? That’s what I look like each time I watched My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. I’m not sure if this show is still on, but when it was, I got into it by watching a Saturday marathon. The show took place in the UK and featured a community of Gypsies. While their lives seemed pretty ordinary, it was the way that they celebrated weddings that was over-the-top fabulous. If you have not seen the show, then you have not seen wedding gowns quite so, well, HUGE!! Fabulous, over-the-top weddings were all the women in this community professed to have wanted out of life. So, there you have it. My guilty pleasure is My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
2Dope readers, is there a television show that you consider your guilty pleasure?
