I've never really gotten into any kind of shows with big overarching plots, whenever I watch TV it's usually something you don't have to watch the last episode to get, like anthologies or comedies. Therefore I'm definetly a movie person.

TV shows. It seems like I can seldom, if ever gear up for a 2 hr movie anymore. Not a new one anyway. Even at home on the firestick. The idea just bores me. Too big a commitment. Unless I basically get kidnapped like I did for "Black Panther". But I enjoy it once I get there. I just got invited to see "Crazy Rich Asians", :) but declined.

I prefer movies but only go out to the ones we think need to be seen on the big screen. It's a chore for me to do so we often get the DVD later. I love TV, though. Some say this is a "second golden age" of TV. With shows like Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, and our favorite word slinger's works I tend to agree. Once cable channels got the idea that we'd watch this sort of programming they have blossomed. It's nice to have HBO or Showtime but even having basic cable gets you some amazing stuff to watch.

I like both. Over the years I've been going to cinema less frequently, on account of the ill-mannered cretins who can't shut-up or live without their cell-phones for two hours.

I had a young teenage couple arguing for half an hour just behind me in the cinema, I kept giving them the evil eye and they quieted down but then the guy kept asking for a kiss and she kept saying no. This went on for so long that I turned around and said "Either you give him a kiss or I'll give him a kiss just shut the hell up!!" :mad:

TV Shows, i'm a Series Junkie.

A Movie entertains you for 1-2,5 Hours a Tv Show for Months, maybe Years.
The TV Show can evolve from Season to Season in a shorter Time than Movies.

You can replace Characters (rational or not, depends on the Series) last minute.

Tery No on needs "TV" anymore. Good Series are streamed today and they are also produced by Streaming Companys like Netflix.

I love good Movies , sure.

But i would always prefer a good Tv Show
