Hey there! Welcome to The Dan Cave! Did you just get back from vacation? Because you look super tan.
Did you watch the musical theater mayhem that was Peter Pan Live? It was a sprawling spectacle that brought 9.2 million viewers together to bear witness to one of the strangest, most sexually confused, silliest pieces of television in recent memory. As with last year’s The Sound of Music Live, many viewers, in direct defiance of star Allison Williams’ wishes, tuned in to hatewatch the ever-loving heck out of Peter Pan Live. There’s just something about awesomely bad TV shows and movies that tap into the schadenfreude portion of our lizard brains and fill us with that special kind of snarky joy.
With the holidays right around the corner, many of us will soon find ourselves surrounded by friends and family for extended periods of time…which means that we’ll all be going crazy in short order. So rather than letting that negative energy tear your family apart, why not redirect it into a group snark session with some good old fashioned hatewatching? While you’ll have to wait until December 16th to own this J.M. Barrie-pocalypse on DVD, there are plenty of other delightfully terrible things out there, so I’ve assembled 9 films and TV shows that are just waiting for you to take them down a peg.
Want even more The Dan Cave? Check out last week’s episode in which Max Nosleeves and I run down the greatest sleeveless movie badasses of all time.
