I was thinking about stuff that, knowing myself, Im surprised I never got into, based on other things that I like. I have thought of a few and would like to hear from anybody else.

The Lord of the rings: considering I liked D&D, Im surprised I never got into the original. I tried reading the Fellowship but the slow beginning always had me giving up. Even in the film I felt the slowness.
I watched all the films and enjoyed them, but wouldnt really go out of my way to watch them again. I like Tolkien in general but feel I should like it more.

Flash Gordon newspaper strips: I really liked the old Buck Rogers newspaper strips. I thought Id like this as well. While Alex Raymond's art is excellent I just couldnt get into the stories.
And I love the cheesey movie.

Dr Who: Ive never even found time to try it. Considering I like Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy, Im surprised Ive never felt the desire to try Dr Who.

I'm sure there are a few more, but these are what came to mind.

Harry Potter - I've always like shows with magic, but the movies came out at the wrong time for me to be going to them (just had little kids). Never had a strong urge to watch them or read the books.

Lord of the Rings - I remember the Hobbit cartoon from when I was a kid, so I remembered Bilbo Baggins but never read the books. I've seen the movies, but am not in love with them like other people.

Star Wars books - considering I love Star Wars, I don't know why I never had the urge to read any of the books. I read the Bourne series, and a couple other ones in high school and college, but never checked to see if my library had Star Wars books when I was growing up.
