I will only watch a TV show if/when..... I will only watch a film if/when..... Most people I meet, myself included, have a few versions of that or things to make it a list. I am curious to see what GBAtemp members have here. Personally I will not watch a TV show unless it has been cancelled or has at least two series already out*, though if I kill two series and it is still going I can go week by week. The Wire killed police procedurals for me so I am very picky about what I watch there. After that I will run from basically braindead right through to "I am going to need a dictionary and the cretin's guide to theoretical physics to make sense of this one". I can and do drop shows and never look back though, this goes double in the case of anime. *I occasionally break this rule and for the last two or three years then every time I have done it I have not necessarily regretted it (though Walking Dead is something I am never likely to finish I do not regret what I saw of it) but the shows I have done it for have not been something I am likely to pick back up. I basically never go to the cinema and James Bond is the only thing likely to change that (though even then it is not a sure thing). On superhero films then with very few exceptions ( http://gbatemp.net/threads/superhero-films-you-can-stand-to-rewatch-occasionally.349816/ ) it is one and done, similarly I can happily watch one of those 40 minutes with heavy spoilers reviews can call it done (I treat it like skim reading a book). I will pretty much watch anything though.
