Most Okay-Rated Ever!

Tired of lists that talk about how overrated or underrated something is? It always as if critics or the general population either go and claim something is so awesome when it stinks or something that is so ugly when it really is awesome. It's sickening how popular opinon often times do not match up to reality, or...at least, what we feel to be reality.

Time to change the tables and build consesus! The goal here is to find out something that the majorty of the population, you included, agreed is rated correctly, either rated exteremly high or extermely low.

Band/Artist: Don't know any
Movie: Citizen Kane, the critics and I love it.
Video game (any platform): KOTOR 1. KOTOR 2 is a toss-up, with lots of arguments over its merits, but at least most people agree that its predecessor is a pretty awesome game, despite some flaws.
Console: Pong? Everyone says its equally...er...not as good as the other consoles.
TV Series: Who Wants to be a Millionare?

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

I thought the same as you until I was able to see their works in person. Photos do them no justice.
