Since we live out in the middle of nowhere my husband and I do a weekend “date night” by borrowing an actual DVD from the library and watching it together. It’s the only time we watch a “movie.” This particular Sunday night I referred to was a freak thing we hadn’t planned for (the same as we hadn’t planned to sleep through dinner time.) I watch the bulk of original series in my workshop while painting.

I prefer series over movie because I feel movies nowadays are all the same. There are few I found to have an original story line. When we borrow from the library we always select older films. Occasionally, if there’s something we’ve been dying to watch we’ll borrow a new release.
