Poll on Movies Versus TV

Are You More of a TV Person or a Movie Person?

I love plopping down on the couch with my remote as much as I enjoy the experience of hot buttered popcorn at the movie theater, but a few of my fellow entertainment buffs are definitely one-sided on the matter. There's one particular friend of mine who would be perfectly content not even owning a TV (crazy, I know), but he'll sit through an eight-hour film marathon. On the other hand, another buddy watches anything and everything that comes on TV. If it's not currently airing, she can always pull from her fully-stocked library of DVD box sets.

I know that many of you are just as fanatical as they are, but what do you normally lean toward more: TV (good, bad, or otherwise) or movies?

You know, I would have said I was a movie person a few years ago...but going to the movies is SO expensive right now. $14 for a film? Come on. So unless it's something I REALLY want to see, I skip it or wait for it to come out on dvd or on tv. This means I am now increasingly becoming a television person.

Definitely TV. I've never really enjoyed movies. I like TV better as a storytelling medium, and I like the fact that I can multitask during TV-watching. (If a movie is lame and I'm on a date, I can't exactly pull out my Kindle for something more entertaining.) Comedy lends itself better to TV, imho, brevity being the soul of wit and all.

I definitely lean more towards TV. Not that I watch much TV on TV anymore, the internet's kinda made it redundant.Also the advantage of TV is that you only really need to invest 30-45 minutes of your time, whereas with movies you need to make more time to sit through them.

I would say that I lean a little more towards tv, but I don't have cable. But I watch everything and that is on the network channels, and I watch a lot of the cable shows online.

If it's a really good movie I never want it to end, or I find myself wondering what happens to everyone after the movie ends...will there be another one etc. For that reason I like TV better because even though it sucks that I have to fast forward commercials and wait another week or season to see what will happen next, I know it will be returning and I will see what the next chapter is.

I prefer movies... I can't stand commercials! That's why I DVR everything I would watch on tv and just skip the commercials.

I've never been a huge movie fan, and now that I have 2 kids, I rarely get to the theater. Nor do I have 2+ uninterrupted hours in a day now to watch a movie at home. However, I LOVE television! I'm an admitted addict and watch much more than I should. But it's easy with a DVR(s). I can start and stop my shows when I need to. I do own quite a few complete series on DVD and do love a good marathon (although these days there is no time!).

Both! But they are both so different. Like genesis said, you get to see character development on a whole new level with television. I hate watching movies at home, though. I rarely do. I need the theater experience to enjoy it thoroughly.

Both but I lean towards TV. You see more character development a lot of the time

TV more probably. I don't watch tons of movies. But there's a time and a place for everything.
