Re-Watching that Show for the Millionth Time

 We don't get cable TV. In fact, it's been almost a decade since I had a TV subscription. My family gets our entertainment from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or some other internet based service.

My wife has shows she likes to watch, my son has his shows, & I have mine. Unfortunately (for my wife) I rarely watch new shows. Instead, my tastes lean more towards watching older shows... over & over & over again!

Right now, for example, I've been watching The West Wing on Netflix. For about the 18th or 19th time. This drives my wife nuts. “How can you sit through that again!? I just saw you watching that same episode 3 days ago!

I finished the series last night... and promptly started watching it again. Why? I don't know. I'll just watch it again, until I get bored, and then switch to something else.

Maybe it's a comfort thing, but, it's not like I'm re-watching shows I remember fondly from my childhood (such as Doctor Who). It's almost always contemporary shows, like The West Wing, That 70's Show, Friends, Roseanne, The IT Crowd, or M*A*S*H.

What do all of these shows have in common? I have no idea. All I know is that I've watched them all many, many times, and, to the detriment of my wife, will do so ago... and probably very, very soon.


  1. I know exactly what you mean about rewatching a million times!!

    I've rewatched New Girl and How I Met Your Mother on Netflix at least 3 times each. Whenever I don't know what to watch, it's one of those two.

  2. So what if you just want to watch the same thing over and over again? That's the beauty of a streaming service!
