Film cos less commitment to one narrative

TV because these days TV series are like the best films split into digestible 45 min chunks.

But obviously books, computer games or pinging elastic bands at a wall over either of them

naaaah

accept that 90% of tv is pish, but films are at least 85% pish too

Much more TV than films though, so the 10% of good TV still outweighs the 50% of good films

TV is just miles better. Films should be considered the same sort of thing as a novella to tv’s novel format y’know. They have their place, but most of the time you’ll read a novel over a novella, cos they’re just richer.

Films have the best songs as well, they’ve got 9 To 5, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Eminem’s rap songs from that film. What’s TV got besides I’ll Be Snookering You Tonight? Fuck all.

It’s much more convenient to my point for me to ignore how much I live for cartoon theme songs, and I’ve not even heard of those other two.

(The BBC news theme does properly slap but I’d never watch that anyway)

remember with tv you’ve got like The News and Antiques Roadshow and Match of the Day or whatever else in amongst all the attempts to make something good

at least most people that make films are trying to make something worthwhile rather than just fill space

Films, no doubt. Far more of a concise vision/story that I find to be way more affecting and a much stronger vessel for personal development. Reckon there’s only like 10 good tv shows ever whereas there’s at least 11 good films.

Plus shit films are way more enjoyable than shit tv shows.
