We manage to actually go to a movie in theater about once every four months. Babysitters and movies are expensive, so we usually wait till Gma has a free Friday (since Noel gets every other Friday off work) and go to a matinee. (We saw The Avengers on Memorial Day and really enjoyed it!)
But that's about it. We rarely turn on the tv to "real" channels - we almost exclusively watch Netflix and movies. The other day I turned on the news, and within thirty minutes saw about 17 annoying political commercials. That's the first time I've seen a commercial in probably 2 months - and I forgot how grating they are!

Did you like The Avengers? What tv shows do you love? Do you consciously switch between 'tv mode' and 'book mode'?
