Movies.

TV series take too much time/effort to re watch. Unless your just talking about catching the reruns on tv once and awhile.

It's such a time commitment to rewatch a television show. Easier with movies.

tv.

i put netflix on while i'm cooking. 30 minute shows are nice because you can finish one or two and sit down to dinner.

If I have a choice...
Movies will be my choice.
I will actually want to re-watch some films.

However...
With so many TV shows being syndicated...
They are more accessible...
And easier to re-watch.
I believe I have watched some episode more than 10 times...
Since it is always playing.

TV - Cartoons and comedies.
Movies - Comedies.

I've watched the seasons 2-9 of the Simpsons the most out of any other TV show or movie by far, so I'm just gonna go with that.

I'd say movies. Some movies I've watched so many times. I can't think of any TV show where I've watched an episode more than a few times and that's because of reruns always being on TV.

I don't have the patience to rewatch stuff anymore; movies nor tv shows. If it isn't new to me, then i'm very unlikely to watch it.

TV shows in general seem more concerned with addicting you, so probably that.

Not that rewatch value should determine how good something is.

way to long to rewatch an entire TV show. I've been wanting to rewatch Lost for a while now, but always find myself interested in another TV show. The only TV shows I've been able to rewatch are the walking dead, Friends and the Simpsons.

A movie is 2 hours. Much easier to rewatch.

sitcoms = 30 mins max. easier to rewatch since they're short and there's usually resolution at the end.

i typically dislike those hour long tv shows where they are made to keep you hanging from week to week. don't have the patience or time for that.

so my favorite sitcoms have more rewatch value over my favorite movies.

Rewatching a single episode of Seinfeld or some other quality sitcom is much "easier" (in terms of time) than a movie.

TV for comedies like sitcoms, movies are better for dramas

I think I've seen every episode of Seinfeld a dozen times and yet whenever they're on TV, I still watch. Same goes for early Simpsons.

TV shows. Try watching an episode from several years ago from any sitcom...still funny and chances are you've forgotten chunks of the plot unlike a movie which you still have a decent idea of how it will end. The other thing is that in a sitcom, the plot is not even central like it is in a movie, the whole idea is to make you laugh through jokes and even if you remember the general plot, you'll have forgotten much of the jokes.

This is why Breaking Bad has taken me so long to watch. I love the show, it's fantastic, but I just don't have the patience or time

This. I think I've seen every episode of Seinfeld at least 10-15 times.

Has to be TV shows. Sitting down and watching an episode of one of your favourite '30 minute sitcoms' which is actually like 22 is much easier and has great re-watch value. I've seen probably every episode of my favourite sitcoms and TV shows multiple times. Heck, I'll watch an episode twice or thrice during the week between episodes to get everything.

On an unrelated note, why do most movie comedies suck so bad in comparison to TV comedies?

I mean, I'm not the biggest It's Always Sunny fan in the world, and I think there are quite a few funnier TV-comedies out there, but just as an example I would rather watch four-to-six episodes of It's Always Sunny back to back and laugh harder than I would any recent popular movie comedy I can think of (watching This is The End made me think of this)..... It feels like it's been like that for a while and I don't really understand the trend.
