Lately, watching TV has been better than going to the movies. Is that a bold statement? Yes. Is it a true statement. Yes.

With heavy-hitting shows like Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, Law & Order SVU, Glee and Two and a Half Men, why leave home? Those shows have cult followings and social media sites prove it.

The Big Bang Theory has 21 million likes on Facebook,The Hunger Games, one of the year's most highly anticipated films of the year, has close to 5 million.

I'm going to give some reasons why TV is better.

1. It's addictive: Well-written TV shows are like chapters in a book, you can't wait until the next one. My favorite, new show is Scandal. I think I've told everyone I know about it because I want them to share in my experience.

  1. It's flexible: You can tweet and not be considered rude. Don't get me wrong I want to catch every moment of the program. But during commercials, I'll go on Facebook and Twitter to see what others are posting.

3.It's more original: Most movies lately have been predictable and redundant. I can't even remember the last movie that I loved. There's been a basic formula for romantic comedies, action movies and bromance films.

I'm looking for Victoria Advocate readers who love TV. Which shows do you watch? Why? I look forward to hearing from you.
