Do we watch TV serials 'coz they are entertaining or are we addicted to watch them? ....And am specifically talking about 'serials' here, not 'reality shows'.

May be we start watching a particular show 'coz we liked it at that point. But doesn't this likeness soon turns into 'compulsion'/'addiction' to watch it? And then, doesn't the purpose of the tv show ceases to exist- that is to ''entertain''? 'coz we (very often) continue to watch it even if we don't like what is being shown.

So do we keep watching serials thinking that that 1/2 hour is our daily dose of ''entertainment'' ?
 or have we become so addicted to watch it, that we don't watch it for entertainment but out of addiction?

I used to be addicted to CID because I loved to watch it. But then I got sick of it, plus it really started to suck lol

So I know when I really like a show, I don't watch it out of compulsion. Like I'm now hooked onto modern family :D

weird how you start a topic the day you become inactive LOL

I usually don't get addicted to TV shows. I can skip a few episodes or even stop watching if I have to.

The only issue for me is once I start watching and episode of L&O - I have to watch it till the end. And if its a marathon and I accidentally end up catching the beginning of the next one.....I'm stuck there for a while.
