Oh, not only are we not entitled to express our opinions (in a SEPARATE thread, no less), but they're "stupid" to boot. Nice Ethan. Very nice.
I put down the series, NOT the fans who liked it. (I even said I was happy for them that Time-Life was treating the series so well.) It's too bad you feel the need to attack people who dislike the series, instead of just defending the series itself.
I don't want to get overly political, but there is a certain amount of politics on this board regarding expressing one's opinion. Like the outside world, we supposedly have free speech... so as long as It agrees with the majority opinion. If you express a dissenting opinion, you get lambasted and accused of being a negative poster. My opinion is simple, each of us has the right to our opinion and we shouldn't be scared of the repercussions of stating it, even if it is not the popular view. To criticize me for stating I don't like a show, it is every bit as "personal" as the attacks you perceive. I love Wild, Wild West, Hogan's Heroes, and Mannix to name a few. If you don't them feel free to tell me so. Doesn't matter in my life. I didn't write, produce, or act in the shows. I have no monetary interest in any of them. I'm not insecure or embarassed by my preferences. I will still like them no matter what you say. There would never be any hard feelings. Peace
