Music should be off-limits. Every single generation thinks the generation of music following their preferred generation of music is of poor quality. There seems to be genuinely few people who enjoy all genres of music across multiple decades.

I don't think the current generation of music is bad, I just don't have as much time to sample as much of it to form an opinion. And that's very typical of people once they hit 30 or so; your experiences are very much tied into the music you enjoyed and our memories attach and gravitate to what we know and enjoy.

Whereas probably 98-99% of folks my age write it all off, I sometimes hear things I like and stuff I don't care for (or think just sucks) but that hasn't really changed since I first got into music in the 1980s. There's always been crap music but honestly, forty-somethings aren't really going to relate much to a target audience of 13-25, which most popular music charts aim towards.

Full disclosure, The Weeknd and Ariana Grande aren't really terrible but I'm not going to proselytize their work...

You don't even have to enjoy or "appreciate" different kinds of music. Simply understanding that it's a matter of opinion is sufficently nuanced and yet 90% of people fail to meet that bar. That doesn't mean you can't voice your opinion, but you also can't convey it like it's objective.

I would not recognize a Taylor Swift song if I heard it.
Ok . . . ? Congradulations?

I recognize Taylor Swift songs by their blandness.
I sense some bad blood here.
Bad blood against her rabid fanbase who will doxx you if you dare say anything negative about her, yes.

Bad Blood, also a Swift song. That one took me a minute.  :spin:

Teresa Brewer, "Put Another Nickel In."  Taylor Swift of her time.

One of my favorite songs of all time is this, so please disregard me already.

Regardless if you like Taylor's music, one thing is certain - she is an awesome business woman. No one becomes a billionaire by accident.

The Godfather
We were doing so well until you were wrong.
I thought we were just naming popular movies at that point.

Nice recovery.

Casablanca (though I haven't tried to watch it in 25 years, maybe it's improved in my mind)

TV shows or movies that you have fond memories of from your childhood.  Almost without fail, if you go back and watch them now, you wonder how you ever thought they were so great.

Prime example for me:  the movie Milo and Otis

Honorable mention:  the series Gilligan's Island
Keep right except to pass.  Yes.  You.

Seinfeld aged well, a lot of my favorite 80s cartoons are only good now because of camp factor.

Taxi is still goin strong on Pluto TV. That was great now as it was then.
Every day is a winding road, you just got to get used to it.

Many of the 1950s and 1960s era 'adult' westerns aged very well and are still quite watchable and entertaining if you can find them.

I didn't think Gilligan's Island was that funny when I was a kid.

I have fond memories of these, but not from early childhood.  Rather, I remember them from when I was a teenager.  Sorry, perhaps I should have been more specific in that I meant early childhood.

I like Curb Your Enthusiasm better because Larry David is hilarious.

Also:  Fraggle Rock is nowhere near as good as I remember it being.

George, Kramer and the huge background cast of notable secondary characters is what does it for me with Seinfeld.

One thing I like about Curb Your Enthusiasm is the cast. Much of the dialogue is ad-libbed, and they cast has incredible chemistry. The characters might not be quite as eccentric as the Seinfeld cast, but they're just as strong in their own ways.
