Gushing About Shows You Like (Sugar Wiki)

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Imbox style.png This page needs some cleaning up to be presentable.

Some examples have already been moved to subpages. For consistency, the rest should follow suit.


We all know that Complaining About Shows You Don't Like is verboten on the main wiki, and so is gushing about them. Yet this is the wiki's sparkly sweet twin. So no restraints! Steamroll us with your positive thoughts!

Any work you like will do, whether you think it's merely decent enough to like, to being So Cool Its Awesome.

NOTE: This is to gush about the show, not to bash people for not liking it.

For more specific gushing, go to Moment of Awesome, Awesome Music, Gushing About Characters You Like, Gushing About Writing You Like, Mood of Win, Sweet Dreams Fuel.

Examples of Gushing About Shows You Like (Sugar Wiki) include:

Magazines & E-Zines

  • Ever since Cracked picked up David Wong as editor, they've gone from a cheap Mad clone into a genuinely interesting satire site, the sadly-rare form of satire that has something to say, rather than just attacking (or just referencing) everything in sight.
    • And Wong's own articles... well, just read for yourself.
    • You left out this one. It's an uncommonly well-balanced article on that issue that actually tries to explain what each side is about, rather than trying to convince either one that they're wrong and need to convert to the other.
    • Cracked is an excellent site... I wish more e-zines like that in my country!
  • Mad itself, particularly older iterations. As a history buff, old Mad magazines have taught me lots about the recent past through a satiric lens. Seriously.
  • Nintendo Power is the greatest magazine in existence. Just look at this old commercial and tell me it's not awesome. Go ahead, I dare you.
  • The Style Invitational humorous competition from the Washington Post makes me crack up every time.
  • Amiga Power is one of the most entertaining magazines ever made - It's quirky style and it's refusal to fall into the four point scale.
  • Badass of the Week. Simply the e-zine that saved my life. So full of awesome stories about guys that... well, check for yourself.

Visual Novels

  • Anything and everything by Kinoko Nasu, but especially Fate/Stay Night. Yes, all you do is read, but I DARE YOU not to cry in any of the three routes. There is, on average, three bawling scenes per route, and at least one heartwarming scene. Lets not even start on the crowning moments, as well as music, of awesome.
  • Tsukihime. Five routes, amounting to both five different stories, and five different aspects of the overall story, each character-driven and brilliantly reflected by the particular heroine they focus on. The protagonist is profoundly likable and human. Even the much-maligned sex scenes aren't really that bad, viewed from a relationship-building rather than erotic perspective, and the music that accompanies them is nothing short of lovely. Oh, and speaking of, the soundtrack overall is very simple, but perfectly atmospheric. Overall, the game's just a wonderful read.
  • Oh, gods, Katawa Shoujo. Who could've thought that the brainchild of that image board, and an eroge no less, could be something so... so beautiful. Seriously. Go play it.

New Media

  • The Internet. Everything about it. Sometimes I fantasize about being able to speak to a person 30 years ago just so that I can tell him every single thing that is awesome about the Internet.


  • Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot. I could play it all night. My family could play it all night. My extended family could play it all night. It never gets boring, the game is never the same twice, and even when you feel like it might you have the option to completely change the game around with an expansion pack or even your own imagination. It quenches my thirst for the arbitrary so I have the time to make the rest of my life a bit more orderly and sensible. In a nutshell, it keeps me from driving everyone around me to insanity.
  • Freeze tag. 'Nuff said.


  • The Jazwares Sonic line. They paid attention to every single detail of the characters. They are even doing Mighty the Armadillio, a character who has not been seen in over a decade.
  • LEGO's Bionicle line. It has an incredibly complex backstory that literally cannot be placed within a single genre, characters that leap out at you, whether in plastic, written words, comic book pages, or tv screens, and a head-writer (Greg Farshtey) who is unbelievably devoted to his work.
  • Hasbro's Marvel Universe line of 3.75-inch figures. They're in the same scale as the G.I. Joe figures, meaning that you can get some of the craziest crossovers yet. Wanna see Captain America (comics) and Snake-Eyes teaming up against Cobra and the Red Skull? Now you most certainly can.
