    18 Things You'll Just Get If You Secretly Love Trash TV

    Because after a long, hard day, you just need some light-hearted entertainment.

    1. When you've had a difficult day all you want to do is vegetate in front of the TV and not use your brain.

    Using your brain is hard.

    2. And nothing helps you unwind more than a show that's so bad it's good.

    3. As much you enjoy high quality shows and serious documentaries, sometimes you need something light-hearted.

    E!

    4. You're aware that what you're watching is crap, but you can't help but get sucked into it.

    5. And you've found yourself shouting at the TV on more than one occasion.

    "YES GIRL! ME TOO GIRL!" you often shout at the TV.

    6. You're ashamed to admit how emotional you've gotten over some of shows you've watched.

    7. But perhaps more ashamed of how much time you spend thinking about the show once you've watched it.

    You weren't supposed to be thinking at all, and now you're five pages deep in Google trying to find reality TV stars' Instagram accounts.

    8. The weirder the programme, the better.

    9. Which means you have thought to yourself "Why am I watching this?"on many, many occasions.

    10. When people find out about the kinds of shows you watch, you always find you have to justify yourself.

    11. So you try to hide your questionable taste from people for as long as possible.

    12. Or at least play down how invested you are in it.

    It's a guilty passion, more like.

    13. There's nothing more beautiful than finding someone who is just as willing to watch crappy TV with you.

    14. And who is equally invested in what's going on.

    15. But the best part of having someone to share your guilty pleasure with, is that there is no hiding how committed you really are to it.

    16. You're always promising yourself that you'll do better things with your time.

    17. And you've abandoned other shows and books at an alarming rate.

    18. Because at the end of the day, nothing quite hits the spot like a totally trashy TV show, even on a Friday night.
