If you could have the freedom to continue watching only one for the rest of your life, would you choose television shows (not including movies) or movies?

I picked movie because who says you have every channel on your TV.

A good show is a good show. A good movie is a work of art.

There are a few great tv shows (breaking bad, doctor who, the office. At least for me) but there are far more great movies.

Well, sometimes there is nothing good on tv BUT movies. And also it is much cheaper to rent movies than buy tv episodes.

I first said movies, but I came up with one (what I think could be considered as a) loophole.
Would the daily news/weather on the local channel be considered a TV show? It's not really for entertainment, but for information. And there really aren't "news movies" that are current information...

Sherlock and Doctor Who are of course exceptions. :D

Movies because commercials suck.
Unless I dvr everything...which I generally do, but snooky and other just plain stupid shows ruined tv for me.
Only a few awesome ones I enjoy.

Selected TV programs. I record my favorite shows like COPS, and Coast Guard Alaska. Shows where people are making a real difference in this world.

I voted for TV, but I'm a retired newspaper and internet movie critic. Saw Les Miserables today and it should win every category at this year's Oscars. Flat-out amazing! As for TV, my favorite was House M.D. And I love Big Bang Theory!

Sherlock, Doctor Who (old and new), Slings and Arrows, The Daily Show, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, The Office, The I. T. Crowd, Black Adder, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, SNL... I spend too much time watching TV but I balance it with reading and studying so it works.

Also I like the Simpsons but they're not as funny anymore. :/

Books!!! And books are turned into movies more than tv shows. But books are my thing.

I have rationalized that by the fact that they release multiple episode plots as "miniseries movie" which totally count as a movie.

I like The Big Bang Theory because students always tell me how alike Sheldon I am. It's seriously like looking in a mirror with slightly more hair. (I buzz clip my head to avoid hat hair.)

I watch more documentaries on the science channel then anything. I could live without movies as long as I still have those.

I definitely agree! Though I would choose Breaking Bad over sports (and I absolutely love watching football, basketball, and hockey). When I chose TV over movies it was bc I had BB, dexter, californication, prison break, lost etc in mind and they beat out my favorite movies.
