I like watching movies and TV shows. I can't stand reality shows. I'm not sure exactly what's supposed to be real about them, but if I wanted to see people bicker, I'd invite some of my friends over.
On the message boards, I like to talk about shows I like, why I like them, and what I notice about them. Not all of my comments are positive, but I don't try to be mean, either.
I think it was my dad who really got me to start paying attention to detail in shows. When I was eight or nine years old, we were watching some western on the late show and my dad kept cracking up at parts that weren't supposed to be funny. When I asked him what was so funny, he started pointing out things I hadn't noticed before, like how a guy's hat would appear and disappear depending on which camera angle was used and how these cowboys seemed to always to camp in the same spot with the rocks rearranged.
Another time, we were watching Black Sheep Squadron and he pointed out how many times they reused footage and pointed out how the same two zeroes always seemed to be getting shot down. From then on, I started paying attention to those types of details, too. I find it interesting to catch these goofs.
I think it's funny to read some of the comments others make on this forum, too. Some of my favorites are when people say, "It's only a tv show/movie," or when someone can' separate an observation from a personal attack.
