But "broad" choices about styles/genres are always going to seem broader to those inside who are versed in (and care about) sub-categories/distinctions. Sure there's infinite possibility for diversity within the superhero genre, for example. Of course there's probably some work that exists or that has yet to be written that the person who says "I don't like those kinds of things" would actually enjoy. But, there also is some fundamental aesthetic that holds a genre together, and that thing, amorphous and indescribable as it may be, is still a fine reason to choose to not watch something.
