Day 12: "Between the hundreth and gazillionth time"  
Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times

Easy, everything I've ever watched, minus the episodes that I never favored or liked.

See, I'm one of those that has that quirk of watching everything multiple times. I simply cannot just watch something once. I have to see it several times in case I missed something, and for my favorite shows I do so for meta purposes, rewatching favorite moments or scenes, to the point where I've memorized the lines. It might seem kind of kooky, but this is what I've always done since like, childhood. I could never watch something one time, I was always watching something over and over and over until like the videotape was completely worn out. These days it's when the DVD is scratched up (which thank goodness for downloads, lol!) And I do this with everything really, from television to movies and even books, it's just who I am. Take it or leave it, bbs. *g*

Masterlist of days here.

In other news, it's seems like I'm totally spamming LJ these days with this 30 days of television meme rather than posting anything else of substance. This is what hiatuses does to me, okay? I become a spamwhore. I'm actually planning on making some real posts about stuff that I've been meaning to post, along with the long overdue review of the SPN finale along with my thoughts on it in general, plus perhaps separate meta posts on specific topics regarding the show.

Plus, I still have some fanmixes to get done and post. My muse kind of left me after the overwhelmingness of my shows, but it seems to have slowly returned to me so, perhaps in the near future I'll have those done as well.

Oh don't worry bb I do that too xD I've always done it with books in particular, reading them till the spines fell apart - some of my most loved are on their third or fourth copy! xD It's only recently I got the chance to start doing it with TV shows/movies - growing up I only had a video player when I was at Dad's house (about... two weeks a year xDD) but lately, especially since I started backpacking and books are just TOO DAMN HEAVY to lug around Europe I've been watching and rewatching stuff like no body's business. Even when I was at Dad's I tended to borrow the same tapes over and over.

I actually don't get the people who don't rewatch things atleast a few times - especially if they buy them. I used to work with a guy who'd buy a book even though he never ever read something twice.

Wow that was kinda pointless. xD Sorry bout that.

Aww, that wasn't pointless bb. :) I very much agree with you. I don't get people who don't watch something more than once either, buying something only to use it once is just absurd to me. It's like, why would you buy movies or books if you have no intention on ever using them again? That's what renting is for. It just makes no sense to me.

Oh, and this reminds me: often times we would rent movies over and over until we just finally bought the movie for ourselves. I think we must've driven our parents crazy. Then again, it's kind of how we all rolled in our house back then, and still does to this day, heh. XD

Yeah xD It's like hey, if you're throwing money away I'll take some? I mean I have so many books I actually ran out of bookcases and have them piled up against the walls of my room to about waist high (they fall over if I pile them higher) but I've read them all, most of them multiple times. (It scares people some times)

LOL yeah, the clerk at the DVD store near my house used to know what I was going to rent when I walked in xD

You do not want to know how many times I saw the Power Rangers movie. It's scary.

This totally has reminded me that I need to get the DVD for that movie, seriously. I haven't watched it in like, ages, and yet I still remember some lines from it. XD GO GO GO POWER RANGERS!!

I'm the same way - if I'm really honest, I doubt there's *any* episode of my favorite shows I haven't watched five times, unless it's the odd episode I dislike for some reason.
Renée: Cylons. By your command!rogueslayer452 on June 3rd, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
I find myself having marathons of episodes I've already seen dozens of times before, but they're always still so amazingly good. Quality never goes away, and it seems the more times you watch an episode you really liked the more things you find with it. And really, I can never get tired of viewing something over and over again if I enjoy it so much. It gets better every time you do so. This is truth.

(also, I have an obsession with commentaries, so on DVDs I'll watch an episode straight through, then go back and watch the commentary, and then rewatch the episode again, lol! I am such a dork like that! ;p)

You're not the only one. I used to watch Disney movies over and over until my dad was, "AGAIN?! Aren't you sick of it?!" Heh, no. I think I must have drove everyone (except for my youngest brother who'd watch with me) crazy. We'd watch the same movie repeatedly until we can memorise the lines.

There are however, some episodes that I don't rewatch as they're too emotional or heartbreaking or both.
Renée: Six/Gaius. Your destiny awaits.rogueslayer452 on June 3rd, 2010 02:12 am (UTC)
Yeah, that's pretty much how we did it too. With Disney movies, and it was worse with the Disney soundtracks, boy did we play those songs ad nauseum. I know my mom didn't mind, she practically endorsed us, but I think we tortured our dad with repeating the same songs over and over again (and worse when it was road trip time in the car...)

There are however, some episodes that I don't rewatch as they're too emotional or heartbreaking or both.

Oh yes, there are some pretty heavy episodes that I can't bear to watch because they're so emotionally draining. Those are the kinds of episodes you can only view once like, every other month or something. Or reserve when you're feeling so low and down that it'll be your release of your emotions at the time. ;__;
