We’ve all had hype blow up in our face; something we were really looking forward to turned out awful.
This thread is about the complete opposite: now-favorite things of yours that sounded like complete shit when you first heard about them. Either it sounded like crap on paper, or a friend described it to you wrong. You got on board later, though. Anything applies.
-Podcasts. “People just sit around and talk? I don’t really care for that.” Cut to now, where I’m downloading 30-50 of them every 2 weeks to help me through housework, waiting in line, and lulls at my job.
-The Dark Knight Trilogy. Well, I didn’t know there would be a trilogy. I didn’t know the Dark Knight would melt my face. I just “knew” that Batman movies suck after Batman and Robin. I came around to seeing Begins just a little before The Dark Knight came out.
OK, to be honest, those are the only two I can think of without pulling out examples I’ve mentioned a billion times already. How about you guys?
