Earlier in the week I had finished up Arakawa Under the Bridge and Attack on Titan, and although there are plenty of good/new anime that I could watch, Netflix flashed some shiny nostalgia at me. Digimon Adventure!

I was attracted to it like a moth to a flame.

It's awful.

I was 10 when Digimon started airing in North America. I remember seeing all sorts of previews for it, and asking my mom if we could tape it (knowing that we wouldn't be around to watch it live). I think my parents still have that first episode on VHS somewhere in their basement.

Now I know that I shouldn't expect anything I enjoyed as a child to hold up when I'm an adult, but I still like DragonBall Z, right?

Hardly anything in the first season of Digimon Adventure even makes sense. I'm so disappointed.

So my question is: Are there any shows/movies from your past (not even necessarily your childhood), that you remember as amazing, but you realize are pretty bad after returning to them later?
