Is TV/Movies still funny to you?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm about to have number 2, and we have some DVD's I've been meaning to watch for 2 years, I watched 2 the other night

The first was Emma, I enjoyed it.

The 2nd was a comedy, Meet the Fockers, I didn't find it all funny, my friends did.

Did 3 years of no TV and 5 or 6 movies max change what I find is funny?

Not necessarily - Meet the Fockers was just a lot of in your face immature humour - not for everyone.

yeah maybe, I've watched some other tid bits too and just didn't see the point

On the 10 hour flight everyone was alseep, too weak to get anything out the overhead so I watched telly, I actually liked the one show, but the other 3 were so stupid, they were hits too.

I watch TV :
I don't find certain type of humor funny, Meet the Fockers falls under that category.

Probably. Or more likely what you do now instead of watching tv seems so much more enriching.

I find there are types of humor especially that I just can't deal with anymore. It awas always true that I had a low tolerance for a lot of sitcom type humor, based so much on embarrassment (I could never watch Fraser, although I liked it; it just hurt too much to watch), but it's much "worse" now.

No, I don't think it's necessarily due to less watching. I crack up watching 30 Rock and Arrested Development (online or on dvd) but I didn't find Meet the Parents all that funny (I haven't seen Meet the Fockers). I also was not laughing through There's Something about Mary even though so many people thought it was hilarious.

For me, it's not a matter of humor; I find myself less satisfied by movies (and TV shows especially--not to mention infuriated by all the commercials) in general. We have been out to a handful of movies in the years since DS was born, and each time I felt like, "that wasn't as good as I wanted it to be." When we see TV at my parents' house, I just stare with my mouth hanging open until I snap out of it and leave the room.

I think that, as homefrontgirl said, now I know there are other, more satisfying things for me to do. When I feel overwhelmed or tired, I crave the "vegging-out" aspect of seeing a movie, but when it's over I feel like I would much rather have just gone to bed early.

(Strangely, I feel the same way about sweets now that I've stopped eating sugar. When I do eat something I used to love, it doesn't taste the way I expected or wanted and I end up thinking, "well, I won't try that again!")

NO, I am always rather irritated by it when I see it a work(I'm an RN).

I find it to be a huge waste for the human brain!!!!!!
