a burning question
Mr. Hammer asks the following question in the comments:
BTW, am I the only person that will watch a movie which I "surfed" upon that: includes cuts of scenes, dubbed over dialog and long commercials breaks, even though I've got the movie on video or DVD? What causes this behavior?
I'd like to know that as well. It's something I do all the time, like getting excited when True Romance is on TBS even though I know it will be chopped to bits and I have the special edition DVD right here.
I do the same thing with a song on the radio. I'll get all giddy "Wow! I haven't heard this song on the radio in ages! I can't believe they are playing it!" And my husband, ever the voice of reason, will remind me that I just listened to the CD yesterday so why all the excitement.
I've never been able to explain the movie/song on the tv/radio experience, but I have wondered how many people react the same way?
