Anything to do with Harry Potter. It's become one of those things that I won't look into because of stubbornness now, but everything that I do know of it makes it seem incredibly unappealing and shite. It doesn't help that it seems like it's the only literary reference 90% of people my age and younger in the media seem to have. The Worst Witch was way better anyway.

A lot of the big American TV shows of the last 15 years or so i.e Lost, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones etc. I’ve seen bits from each and Mrs Facesitter is obsessed with them, but to me anytime she talks about/makes references about them or references appear in other shows it just goes right over the noggin.

On a kind of related note, a year or so ago I was in Primark in their Harry Potter section.  My girlfriend asked me to keep an eye out for anything with a niffler on.  I said that I couldn't do that as I don't know what a niffler looked like, at which point a teenage girl span round and said in a raised voice "How can you not know what a niffler looks like" and I looked to the floor and wished it open up.

Well if it comforts you, I don't know what a niffler is either.  You should have asked the girl if she knew who Gordon the Gofer was, and then walked off like Own Jones as she picked up her credibility off of the floor.

Fortnite. I just don’t understand the appeal and/or why it’s acceptable to pay silly money for skins that don’t affect the gameplay at all My nephew spends every penny her gets from family on it and I don’t see why.

I  was in Game over Christmas and there was a parent in there who forked out £60 for "V bucks"? for his kids to buy and he seemed really downtrodden about it. My nephew is quite into it as well. I played a few games, and can see how it gets people hooked on it with its "better luck next time" and carrot dangling.

I feel your pain Houch, I work for them and have the same reaction whenever a customer asks for an item with a specific house on

Fortnite, genuinely no clue what it's all about, just that it has that flossing dance in it. 

Game of Thrones. Never seen more than an episode. Just tits and dragons, innit? I can tend to piece together what people are on about, but it's still largely meaningless.

Harry Potter to an extent - an ex made me watch the movies, but I still don't really get it. When people talk about what house they're "in", I find it completely baffling. 

Also soaps and football.

 

Probably a bunch of others too - I barely watched any TV series between The Wire and the last season of Twin Peaks.

Harry Potter totally passed me and the wife by, mainly as I was too old and my wife is older than I am.

However, when we first went to Universal in 2016, we made an effort to watch the movies as so much of the park is devoted to Potter and we didn't want to miss out on anything. Since then, we've both become big fans of the whole universe. The story really is very good, and there's enough in it to make you think without becoming overwhelming. We've been to the Studios in Watford (which is great, btw) and saw and the Fantastic Beasts films, each on the day of release. I can't give a toss about which house I'm in, but I genuinely do have a fine affection for something having given it a fair chance.

No idea about Game of Thrones though.
