Guilty Pleasures

I had a discussion with a friend today about guilty pleasures. Let's face it, they don't call them such for nothing. The guilt adds a little edge to the enjoyment. They're the kind of thing you're not exactly ashamed of, just a little sheepish about. In my case it's vampire romances, movies and occasional TV show. I got hooked on them from movies that friends liked to watch and a high school Gothic literature class. It's fun and it's a release from the seriousness of every day life, not to mention occasionally cathartic. My current incarnation of the vampire guilty pleasure, is a TV show called "Blood Ties". It is based on a series of books by an Canadian author Tanya Huff which I had read in the 90s. I found out just by seeing an ad that it was going to be on Lifetime. Now I really don't like Lifetime as a rule, but this was an exception. I've been curious about how people were reacting to the show, so have looked at some blogs and such and guess what there are more people then me who are enjoying the show as a guilty pleasure. So here's to the guilty pleasures in life and the fun they bring us.

I found a fan video from Evanescence's Bring Me to Life. It's fun and gives a peek at why the show is such a guilty pleasure:
