Interesting poll.

I have to say... I started Wicked, too... but oh my gosh. Couldn't stand it. But why do you hate it on principal?

I was continuously stuck listening to the Wicked soundtrack against my will. Similar to being stuck listening to Harry Potter conversations against my will.

There's more to it than that, but as there are friends on this LJ list that have done such injustices to me, I'll leave it at that. *Cough*
