4 Reasons Why I Prefer Watching Movies To TV Shows

One reason is that TV shows are too long. Some TV shows have a lot of episodes and seasons. Later on, I am going to wish that the TV show ended as soon as possible.


People watch movies and TV shows. Which one is better? I prefer movies to TV shows.

Why I do prefer movies? One reason is that TV shows are too long. Some TV shows have a lot of episodes and seasons. Later on, I am going to wish that the TV show will end as soon as possible. I mostly finish short TV shows. The short ones range from twelve to twenty-five episodes. A movie can range from one to three hours. Some movies are series. At least they are not long like TV shows. That is good for me because the movie will wrap up after one to three hours. TV shows, on other hand, do not end in one episode. I have to keep watching until the last episode. However, the last episode might be episode one thousand or one million.

Another reason is that the plot in TV shows often changes. After one season, the story is no longer the same because of new characters and new changes in the characters’ presence, personality, or feelings. At least movies will ensure that the plot is consistent as best as possible.

The third reason is that I can watch movies anytime and once. I have to watch new episodes of TV shows every day. If it is aired on TV, then I have to watch new episodes once a week. Watching episodes every week and once a week can be mind-boggling.

Here is the last reason. The fun part about watching movies is watching them at a movie theater. We cannot watch TV shows at the movie theater. Friends and family can watch the movie with me at the movie theater. Nighttime will be the best time, especially if it is opening night.

Do you prefer watching movies or TV shows?

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
