On Repeat

What movies or TV series have you watched more than 5 times?


I decided to answer the WordPress prompt for the day because it’s so relevant to us.

My husband and I watch a few shows over and over, like Mash, Seinfeld, Twilight Zone, Frasier and CSI Miami. Some of that is due to limited channels in our area, but mostly because he enjoys them more than modern programs.

The movies I’ve seen more than five times are the ones that are visually stunning or stimulating. Movies like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Tombstone, Top Gun are a few and musical movies Like Purple Rain, and Dirty Dancing are some that come to mind. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Twister a few times.

maybe a lot of it stems from us living by routine. Both of us have a military background, both of our fathers were also military. Even in the motor home we follow a sort of loose routine. I’m more likely to break from routine than Dave, at least so far.

It’s silly, isn’t it? Watching things repeatedly for the enjoyment instead of something new, but then again, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to!
