A book, television show or movie which seemed to be awesome when seen as a child but turn out to be unbearably shitty as an adult.
1. I tried to watch Voltron the other day. What a terrible show! I can't believe we watched that shit back in the day. Talk about Different Strokes Syndrome.
2. Jonathan Livingston Seagull gave me a total "I'm special" hard-on when I was 13. Due to Different Strokes Syndrome, I couldn't make it through the first chapter as an adult.
