I may not know what I like, but I know what I don't like

That's become something of a catchphrase to me as of late, because I find myself constantly questioning whether or not I enjoy something in retrospect.  More often then not, I find myself coming across stuff I don't like or didn't care for being more apparent in re-watchings or re-readings or replayings of certain TV shows, movies, books, video games, etc.  Thing is, when it's something I never liked from the start, that part I never question, even if I can't fully justify why I didn't like it.  It made me feel weird and uncomfortable, so I don't like it.

Now, before I continue, I just want to say this isn't a cry for attention (that's honestly a LOT more trouble then it's worth), nor is it me just ranting and bitching about stuff I don't like it.  This is also not me suggestion everyone should like the same thing, that's just ridiculous; having different opinions and different points of view can enlighten others and broaden our horizons to new things and ideas we might end up liking!  This has become something that's been consuming me for a while now, and it's only until recently that I've decided to say something about it like this.  Hopefully, some of you have similar stories to share.  Continued after the break:

Wander Over Yonder: My Thoughts and Hopes

So Wander Over Yonder officially premiered last Friday on the Disney Channel.  It's a new animated show created by Craig McCracken, the creator of classic Cartoon Network TV series such as The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.  I saw it with a couple of friends of mine, and I eventually showed it to my mom and personal trainer.  The two episodes that aired, "The Greatest" and "The Egg", are available on iTunes, so you can go ahead and checked them out!  When I got them, they happened to be free (though I went ahead an purchased a seasonal pass anyway); I don't know if this offer is still available, or if it's available anywhere outside the USA, though.

I'd like to take some time to talk about what I thought of the show, as well as some other things about the show.  Apologies in advance for the super-duper, triple-extra-large post following the break, and preemptive "screw you"s to anyone who feels the need to reply to this with a dumb "tl;dr".  If you didn't read it, you don't need to respond to it!  ...Thought since I don't get comments anyway, that shouldn't be an issue.

But anyway, first of all, let me preface this by saying I saw the sneak peek titled "The Picnic" before I saw this, so I'll be making a lot of comparisons to this, particularly with...
