I am a movie, TV show, and manga nub. I feel like there are a lot of shows and stuff out there that I'd enjoy, but just haven't been exposed to yet. Especially movies...I got scared easily by movies when I was younger, and a little after I grew out of that, my brother was born, so my family never went out to watch movies. So, I haven't watched that many movies, and still don't. I.E. I haven't watched Inception, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, etc. etc. etc. But I don't know. Is it worth it to get into the movie "scene?" Every time I go to the movie theater, I always feel like I'm wasting money because of how expensive tickets are. But even if I "obtain" a copy of a movie some other way (borrowing a DVD, for example), there still remains the issue of time commitment - I can never seem to just block off a couple hours of my time and commit it to watching something. =/
The same goes for TV shows and manga. I know that there are great series out there, but I don't know what's worth the time to get into and what isn't. For example, it took me a while to get current on Big Bang Theory, but then I stopped following it because...well, see earlier post. And Bleach took even longer to get current, and...well, it's going in circles and I don't really see a way out for that series, either.
So I guess what I'm looking for are recommendations. What will actually be worth my time? What won't be? A friend of mine has been trying to get me to read One Piece lately. I probably will, but it's just so damn long. No, that is not what she said.
