My ADD is bad so I take Vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) when I watch TV shows I can tell that I enjoy the story, but I just don't feel excited. Why is that? (I take 50mg)

Check with your: doctor because ADHD meds can cause people to be too prone to fall asleep, or in subtler cases, to under-respond to stimuli, including emotional ones. Your doc will also asses for co-morbid conditions, like depression, which also might explain some of your experiences.
