Which is better: Movies or T.V. shows?


The question has been asked for a long time; which is better? Movies or T.V. shows? While both of them are very enjoyable and a great way to spend free time, they have their ups and downs. We’ve asked people for their opinions on this interesting debate, and here’s what they have to say. 

If I had to choose, I’d go with TV shows; because movies are just an hour or two, and don’t keep you engaged as long, whereas with TV shows you can keep watching and they keep you interested for a longer period of time.” -Kaavya V.


“T.V. shows because they last longer, but on the contrary, there are some really good movies that beat TV shows even though they aren’t as long.” -Addie D. 

A lot of people have also mentioned that movies are something where if you want to get a proper ending to the story, you’d have to sit through the whole thing. Whereas with TV shows it’s an ongoing story line and it would be fine to stop a TV show without finishing the whole thing, which is another reason why people prefer TV shows to movies.  




“I feel like watching movies takes less commitment than T.V. shows, and you can go to a movie theater and watch a movie which is more fun.” -anonymous 



What are some positive and negative things about both?


  What are some positive and negative things about TV Shows? If most people prefer TV shows to movies, there must be plenty of positive things that they have to offer. Right? 

Well according to recent studies, TV shows do have plenty of positive things about them. A few good things about TV shows include the fact that the suspense and length that they take to actually get to the climax instills a sense of commitment and helps kids to learn how to stay engaged in a topic, and that they make the watcher feel a connection to the characters, because you see them and watch what they do for a longer time then you would in a movie, this can help an individual feel less lonely. 


Although it now seems like TV shows are a great way to spend your free time, they aren’t all good for you. TV can have negative effects on people such as stealing time from kids. TV shows often take a few days or weeks to finish, and if a person gets too engaged with a show they love, it.

It can suck up time needed to finish important work, projects, etc. Another negative thing about TV shows is how it isolates a person from spending time with loved ones, such as family or friends. When watching TV a person tends to get so focused on what is happening on screen that they stop paying attention to other people, and stop spending time with them. 


What are some positive and negative things about Movies? Some positive things about movies are that you can spend time with your friends and family. It’s fun to go to the theater  with people you know. Movies are also an inspiration and give a lot of information like about famous people or historic times. Movies can teach us things. Movies also help us get to know the world better. There are so many things we don’t know about. 

Apart from the positive parts to movies there are also some negative things.

Some negative things are that most movies are adult content meaning kids/teens cant watch them without an adult. Some movies also send bad messages like smoking or drinking among kids/teens that can affect what they do and how they grow up. Movies also provoke messages that create conflict among people. 

According to myessaypoint.com, “Movies are just a mirror for us and therefore we should grab the positive things, rather than leaning towards the negative ones. So watch good movies that inspire you and bring a change in your life.”  


In conclusion, there are a lot of negative and positive  things for both movies and T.V. shows; and it seems like people like T.V. shows more than movies. What do you think? Are movies or T.V. shows better? Let us know. Thanks for reading.
