When A Good Film Comes On Tv...

...why is it always so much more satisfying watching it, as opposed to just stickin it on DVD?
 
Does anyone else get that, or am I just being a fruitcake?
 
If I spot a good film on TV, I'll watch it, and it'll be much more fulfilling that sticking the same film on DVD.

    know exactly what you mean, i can also have a film on dvd just sitting there and never fancy watching it, then it comes on tv and i'll get all comfy and watch it.

    Always enjoy a film more on tv even with the ad breaks.

    Could be down to me being a tight cnut and the thought about the cost of a tv licence pops into my head making me enjoy the movie.

    I'm the same. I also enjoy ad breaks in films in a bizarre kind of way, it prolongs the whole experience, and allows you time to nip out and make a cup of tea, etc. Only for certain films though, on some films it ruins it.

    Could it be that with a TV film you know millions of others are watching it with you so feels more of a communal experience?

    I must say I am the complete opposite fellas. Unless the film is on the BBC, I won't watch it as the ad breaks really piss me off. My missus always does it though when we have the DVD in the drawer.

    Maybe it's to do with the fact that it wasn't your choice of film to put on? Like it would be if you had a whole load of DVD's to chose from, you'd be comparing your enjoyment to another film you could have watched but chose not to. When it's on TV you just sit and watch it for what it is, there's no comparison to anything else at the time.
     
    Or maybe I'm just talking complete balls!

    OMG I was going to say the same thing but didnt as it sounded nuts. Not sure how/why but if im in on my own, and stick a DVD on late at night, it feels 'lonely' whereas I dont feel that with TV.

    Yep think for me its the fact that i,m forced to watch utter sh*t most of the time so when a decent film comes on it makes it all the more enjoyable.
