Way back in June 2012 when we released our first “Geek Confessions” podcast, within 48 hours it became the most-downloaded show in our podcast’s history.

Bottom line = you guys love to hear about the embarrassing things we love.

In that show, some of us (OK one of us) revealed embarrassing things like never having seen The Godfather.

This week, The League of Extraordinary Bloggers wants to know about everyone’s guilty pleasures. No getting off easy here by admitting things we haven’t seen – nope, this time we have to come clean about things we love, but probably shouldn’t.

We assembled what’s left of our podcast’s Roundtable Voltron (Corey, Joe, Tank & Howie) for this assignment. We (not so) proudly present The UnderScoopFire Voltron’s Guilty Pleasures, in no particular order:

 

Full House

Kristen Stewart

Cadbury Eggs

Joey

the musical acts spawned by Disney shows (Bridgit Mendler, Ross Lynch, the girls from Shake It Up)

Some of the other Leaguers’ guilty pleasures:

ShezCrafti unapologetically loves Ace of Base

Calvin’s Canadian Cave of Cool has a vast Monster High collection (I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t eyed those up before)

The Goodwill Geek wants to delete their post as quickly as it published, but SHOULD be proud of it

Pop Rewind has a nice mix of TV, music, books and cartoons to feel guilty about

…and ‘Hold On”, Flashlights Are Something To Eat dropped the first ten that came to mind, and they’re fantastic

Dex loves him some 1D!

Achievements in Gaming is proud to love Magic the Gathering

Movie Hodge Podge goes all Bond on us

Team Hellions gets one in before Sunday night (and it involves some of television’s sexiest women)

and the Crooked Ninja Turtle starts with Pro Wrasslin and ends just as strong

To The Man Who Stares At Toys – ain’t nuttin’ wrong with a bad Kristy Swanson movie and some Golden Girls!

 

  • Hail Mary

    Ok, whichever Voltron member it is that likes New Kids on the Block has a fan for life in the form of my wife.

      that would be Corey and Joe

      Guilty as charged.

      • Hail Mary

        Well. She said if you guys ever need someone to go to an NKOTB concert with, she’s your girl.

        • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

          Right on

  • http://teamhellions.com Kevin Hellions

    Horse. Shit. There should be nothing embarrassing, and thus a guilty pleasure, for wrestling or blind bags or girls wearing glasses. That AJ blind bag figure should be a point of honor!

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      agreed. I will take the blame for those three.

      the third one was really just an excuse to post that pic on the page

    So where’s the list of the guilty pleasures, all I saw was a bunch of cool stuff?

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      So are you ready to hit the social networks with me as a staunch supporter of Kristen Stewart and her work?

      • http://www.brandedinthe80s.com Shawn Robare

        Well, I did enjoy Adventureland for the most part. Now that I think about it, I need to see that Runaways flick too…

        • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

          I liked it, and my wife loved it. I think if she was never cast in Twilight she’d have a much different perception

  • handsybroad

    Haha funny list. I end up engGed by those disney shows too when my kids watch them.

    Seriously…as I read all these “guilty pleasure” lists I don’t know what to think of myself as I approve of nearly everything.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      that seems to be the overarching theme of all the league posts so far. I haven’t read a single thing I wildly disapprove of. Then again, I’m not a troll so it’s not in my nature to derive joy from baggin’ on something someone else likes.

      • https://twitter.com/Count_Marzo Count Marzo

        Well there are a COUPLE things that I couldn’t ever stomach that have been mentioned (ahem Nickelback) but like you said, I’m not gonna go hating on anyone for whatever they like.
