it's some I need to admit, as much as I love shows meant for guys,(and I am a guy)
I used to watch certain shows meant for girls, mostly a couple of anime shows, and I will admit that I still like those shows. even though I have not watch them since many years ago...

so my question is... how many poeple with aspergers/autism have enjoyed a show/any show that was intended for the opposite gender?

My girlfriend used to watch Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. I started watching them because of her. I liked them. After we broke up, I lost interest in them.

I love the movie "Under The Tuscan Sun," which I think was directed at women. The escapism and rebirth aspect appeals to me.

yeah, i am a bit obsessed with the Bourne series. also Training Day. both of these seem to feature characters with growing self-awareness when faced with adversity. life challenges their morals and ethics, and they have to reassess their direction. or something like that.

I was kinda hooked on Top Gear for a while. I really like the--um, I keep wanting to call it photography, but that's not right... Is it cinematography? Well, whatever. You'd think being in television myself, I'd know what to call it. :roll:

Documentaries of big constructions like bridges and buildings and action movies like Die Hard.

I've watched a number of shows on the Spike Channel such as Deadliest Warrior, World's Worst Tenants and even Repo Games, although I've gotten really disgusted with Repo Games lately because almost every woman on the show now seems to be a stripper.

I hear Charmed is supposed to be targeted at women, but I know a lot of guys who loved it.

There was a point in the history of Dutch television (around 1998-ish), when commercial TV stations branched out into profiling themselves as 'men's channels' and 'women's channels', primarily RTL 4 (women) and RTL 5 (men) from the RTL group, and SBS 6 (men) and Net 5 (women) from the SBS media group. Guess which TV channels I ended up liking the most? The women's channels. They had better drama, more intelligent talk shows, and nice game shows. Now, that's changed, and commercial 'women's channels' mainly air dumb shows about fashion, lifestyle, and gossip, while commercial men's channels air equally dumb shows about cars, sex, and cops.
So now, I mostly watch the public TV channels when I watch at all. :D

My husband used to watch Charmed. I used to tease him that his "sexy witch show" was on.
You know how movies about relationships and stuff like that are called "chick" flicks? I think movies with lots of fighting, explosions, and car chases ought to be called "dick" flicks.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch - They've currently been rerunning this show on a channel called Popgirl unfortunatly. I use to watch this show on CITV in the late 90's and early 2000's and while technically a girl's show it was really good. I love the cat, he's my favourite.

I like watching MANswers because of the interesting trivia and juvenile humor. I also used to be completely obsessed with the anime/manga/OVA series Hellsing, which is classified as a seinen ("young man's") series.

Does Fullmetal Alchemist count? I usually hate shows that are intended for women, but I can't think of any (entirely meant for men) that I like. I would think the makers of these shows would try to attract a bigger audience...

I like the musical Wicked. That is directed to women.
