oh well. we shouldn't put these people up on pedestals to begin with.
I don't know what suddenly made it pretentious and bad to you...but it's supposed to be absurd. Absurdity is the writer and creator Alan Ball's touchstone.

I started watching more actual good movies.

prior to that, I thought American Beauty stood out, but I had more or less only seen Hollywood blockbusters and schlock up until that point in my life (this is circa 2000, and I was 20 years old.)

Okay.

I thought it was a pretty good movie, and I still do, although I really didn't go out of my way to watch it again after I saw it the first time.

I liked Six Feet Under a lot. Never much got into True Blood.

Andy Dick had a job? I thought the only thing that saved Kathy Griffin's fall was landing on Andy Dick.
