    Default If a favourite movie that you own is on TV...

    Do you watch it?

    Or do you think it's lame to watch a movie with ad breaks that you can easily watch on DVD?

    I'm watching Mean Girls tonight on TV even though I can watch it any time on DVD (and I've seen it numerous times).

    I actually don't mind ad breaks, they allow time for drink/toilet breaks

    I do it all the time. Good for toilets breaks as someone has said.

    Ok that IS kind of nuts, lol. We occasionally watch something that we've already got, or it inspires us to get the DVD out and watch that instead.

    My DH is not aware it's on, or of he is he has not said anything. He usually complains a lot about Mean Girls...Earlier he told me he was going to be late tonight and I didn't think before I spoke and exclaimed 'Oh great!'...

    Well, I'm from that generation that had about 5 TV channels and video cassette players if you were lucky, so I'm still of the mentality that any movie on TV is special! So yes, I prefer to watch movies on TV than actual DVD's...
