TV vs. movies

My Dad has owned a video store for about 25 years. My childhood and earlier adulthood was spent watching movies... over and over and over again. I could quote you the entire script of "Clue" if you wanted me to. ;)
But for the last ten years or so I'v

    But for the last ten years or so I've been a TV junkie. Don't know why. Maybe TV got better? I don't know.

    So, how about you? Are you a TV-viewer or movie watcher?

    I flip back and forth. I have my favorite movies I love to watch over and over, and I have shows that I know each line from several seasons.

    I do think TV shows have more followings now, people who watch them every week.

    Both. Couldn't pick one if I had to!

    I watch Friends. That's pretty much it! I do love movies, but don't watch them that often.

    TV! I can't sit still long enough for a movie. I LOVE dateline, 48hours, etc.

    We flip back and forth, i love movies but i just dont think there are as many out i love that i used to KWIM
    Love watching shows, though that only happens when Gary home, we get snuggled up in bed and catch up on what we miss when he off shore

    ETA most of the movies i do watch are old repeats

    Both...I love movies and have most of my classic favorites and I have a bunch of shows that I love to watch. However, the best of both worlds...watching TV seasons on DVDs. Something I've seen a million times (like Friends, West Wing, Psych to name a few) and end up quoting most of the episodes while I'm scrapping.

    Good question!

    I think I get really invested in characters when I see them every week. :)

    I watch way more TV. DH loves movies...funny that you said you can quote "Clue" Marcy-DH can, too! What is it with that movie?

    I'm a movie person, but even that I do pretty sparingly. I am hooked on Downton Abbey though.

    TV-shows for sure! I love trashy reality and series, everything from crime to comedy to girly drama :) I don't have a TV at home but I watch online.

    TV... I rarely have time to sit and watch a whole movie. I like the faster paced tv shows. :)

    I like movies if I'm watching them in the theater, but I cannot watch an entire movie at home. They're so long and they always get so boring in the middle when things in the storyline slow down. I love TV, it moves much faster for my tastes...but I generally only listen to it when I'm scrapping, so I guess I still don't "watch" TV. LOL

    TV has definitely gotten better! we just had this discussion at home two nights ago.

    I also love that the internet has made it a lot easier to watch entire runs of TV shows with Netflix, Hulu, etc --

    But there are some movies that are still pretty awesome -- umm kind of obsessed with Pitch Perfect right now.

    tv has definitely gotten better, and I think at the same time that really good adult movies have gotten worse. much worse.
    loving tv lately. :)

    We don't have TV service so I don't watch too much (a bit online). My hubby, however, is BIG into movie watching. We currently own 570 movies either on DVD or through iTunes. This is especially awesome ~ he buys movies & I buy scrappy supplies.

    Briana - I have three copies at home. One DVD, two VHS. "Dah dah - dah dah - dah - dah... I am the singing telegram... BANG"

    Neither really, but when I do watch something it is a movie. I rarely watch something just to be doing something. If I see a movie it's because it's a special movie I have been wanting to see. The movies I've seen in the last few years are Hunger Games, Let me in (Swedish version) and ofcourse The Hobbit.

    I have never been a tv person, but my hubby has gotten me into a few shows (Dexter, Breaking Bad, Justified and The Walking Dead) Love these shows, but typically I've always been a movie girl. I think the reason I am into the television shows that I am is due to them being available on Netflix streaming and being able to DVR the new ones.

    Definitely T.V.! I don't have a lot of time to sit and watch movies.

    Both. I love movies, but there are so many good tv programmes on now too.

    I have to say that Clue to me is one of the best comedies of all time. The cast is full of comic geniuses. And they were so serious and deadpan when delivering their lines, it just made it funnier :)

    Books. Books are always best! ( I realize that wasn't the choice but am adding it in). Still love to see a good movie once in awhile. Love Downton Abbey and Biggest Loser on TV minus the "Get off you _ss!" remarks by JM and BH.

    TV for me, but i think that's mostly because i don't get out much to the movies anymore and i much prefer to watch movies in the theater rather than at home. with that being said, i don't really watch much TV either though. i have a handful of shows....grey's, parenthood, breaking bad
