The commenter's argument was rife with logical fallacies--false extreme, ad hominem, ad stupido.
However, the typical response to a commenter like this is to say, "No! I don't like trite shows, and I still thought this season was bad! I know what 'good' is!"
But the truth is, I love trite shows. So what?
Here are three more things I love, even though they frankly just aren't that good:
My mother, a true chocolate snob, can't stand Hershey Bars, and to be honest, I don't much care for Hershey's big Symphony Bars. But I quite like the simple, small, waxy Hershey Bars. I have no idea why. They are frankly not as good as Ghiradelli--or, I suppose, even Lindor (though I don't care for Lindor, which I consider far too cloyingly sweet). I think my preference for Hershey Bars may be rooted in nostalgia--it takes me back to my childhood. Ah, the days when chocolate bars were less than a $1!

Star Trek Actors--All of Them
Star Trek actors range from startlingly gifted to workaday average to just bad. I don't care. I love them all.
