sudyn: AniSue to MovieSue

Here we go again. Another discussion.
Just in case you might have noticed and might be wondering: I deleted the post prior to this one. My common sense switched on a bit late, then told me it was a bad idea to post one’s own writing in one’s own community when it’s still as fresh as this one and has but a handful of members to boast. It felt too much like self-advertising.
Anyway.
I started watching D. Gray-man recently; an awesome anime series – for those of you who don’t know what that is. I love watching anime where blood spurts every now and then. My love for Elfen Lied is proof for that, I guess.
But there is one thing I’ve noticed about both anime series mentioned above. I don’t think I would read them, were they in novel form.
Do you feel similarly when it comes to anime – both adult and teen anime? And do you feel there are Sues out in the movie industry/Hollywood productions, etc.? Does it bother you? Anything you would not mind never seeing again? Any other rants in that direction?

*grins*
Don't worry abou it. No need to apologize. =D
Yeah. We get lots of American shows over here, but I'm not acquainted with even half of them. I'm simply not the soap-opera-watcher... nor one who watches episodes of any kind, actually. I love the Simpsons and King of Queens, though.

I don't know what NCIS is, but I know - or have heard of, rather - Crossing Jordan.

And I must agree that cross-over episodes are nightmarish. It thwarts uniqueness. (As if all those shows were actually unique! But at least they could try, no?)
Do you by any chance remember the cross-over cartoon when the Flintstones met the Jacksons? *gags* Not good at all. Right now, it's the most popular I can think of. *is amazed she can think at all*

Sorry about the randomness. I'm very scattered-brained right now.

Oh. And here is something I just remembered: BEVERLY HILLS 90210!!!
Sue Alert! Horrible!
but I used to watch every single show back in the days
