Subj: What are you surprised that you never got into?

I was thinking about stuff that, knowing myself, Im surprised I never got into, based on other things that I like. I have thought of a few and would like to hear from anybody else.

The Lord of the rings: considering I liked D&D, Im surprised I never got into the original. I tried reading the Fellowship but the slow beginning always had me giving up. Even in the film I felt the slowness.
I watched all the films and enjoyed them, but wouldnt really go out of my way to watch them again. I like Tolkien in general but feel I should like it more.


Flash Gordon newspaper strips: I really liked the old Buck Rogers newspaper strips. I thought Id like this as well. While Alex Raymond's art is excellent I just couldnt get into the stories.
And I love the cheesey movie.


Dr Who: Ive never even found time to try it. Considering I like Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy, Im surprised Ive never felt the desire to try Dr Who.


I'm sure there are a few more, but these are what came to mind.
