My obsession

I have an obsession. I love movies. I love going to movies and watching them at home. I love buying a new DVD and taking the plastic off and seeing the shiny new disc. It's the best! The past 8 years or so my family has had a lot of health problems which a number of them have resulted in various surgeries. When I say various, I mean we once had 14 surgeries between the 5 of us in a 12 month span. Unfortunately, there is not much to do while being confined to your bed or the couch and t.v. gets old really quick, so we became big movie buffs. I have a collection of just under 500 DVD's of all genres. My parents have just under 300 in their collection, all of which are different from mine..so needless to say if you want to watch a movie, we've probably got it.

My new, well not new, but latest favorite thing is t.v. series on DVD. It's so nice. You don't have to watch commercials and you don't have to wait a whole week to see the next episode. I've currently started watching the FX series The Shield. Wow, it's good. Some of my favorite series are The Office, CSI, and Grey's Anatomy. I've watched those over and over again.

Another thing I like to do with DVD's is watch all of the extras that they give you. Gag reels, alternate endings, director/actor commentary. They're great. T.v. series on DVD will usually give you a whole disc of bonus materials and a lot of times it will have portions of the premier of the next season. Good stuff. Anyway, if anyone wants to borrow a movie let me know, I'll send you my list.

Since I consider myself an expert on TV, I would suggest watching "Brothers & Sisters" on DVD. Also, you may get a kick out of Desperate Housewives. It's so clever. Everything else I watch is too new for DVD...
