There's no reason the term "favorite" should be associated any more with conventional fun/entertainment/rewatchability than appreciation/interest. It should be a combination of both-- But if you aren't satisfied by something AND don't appreciate it, then why would you give it credit on a level that outweighs how you actually feel about it? Seems backwards, cold, and calculated to me.

It's more just a logical knot/peeve I have than some statement I'm making. I treat them exactly the same way.
You think they should be treated the same for you. Fine. But I could make a list about what I think is the best in general just as well as I could my faves. They would probably overlap, but 'best' is subjective and tries to be objective as well. Whether it's actually objective may or may not be the case. Cheers.
