Back to 5 Reasons Why You Aren't Going to the Movies
3. Television Shows
As if better viewing equipment and sooner chances to watch movies wasn't enough of an incentive for audiences to stay home, there's television itself. "I prefer watching the quality dramas on HBO, AMC and FX, among others, to movies. With the majority of movies now geared to children or 15-24 year old boys, I don't have time or desire to sift through dozens of reviews to find a movie worth my time and money," Katherine M. wrote
. "The quality TV dramas are thought-provoking, at the same time every week, and can be DVR'd or seen on demand. [...] Most great stories take more than two hours to tell, and so I love the mini-series and 13-week season formats of TV, where I get an in-depth story, but only have to sit for an hour at a time." It's hard to argue with someone who would rather stay home an watch 'Breaking Bad' than head to the theater to check out 'Footloose.'
