Lately, I have been sidetracked by TV series and movies. I guess this is what Netflix subscription did to me.
TV Series and movies are not as tedious with books as the level of imagination required is not that high (almost negligible) since most of the elements are presented visually.
Moreover, TV series and movies can add a bit of additional detail, magic or flair to a story after hearing how a line is delivered or how the actor plays out the role. A story may even be experienced differently if through these medium, such as Sherlock Holmes and Flipped.
Even my favorite line came from a TV series and not a book:
“We are all stories in the end. Make it a good one, eh?” – Doctor Who
Choosing one over the other, however, is personal preference. But, for me, it is also healthy is they coexist somehow.
For me, books, TV series and movies are all great sources of stories, on top of personal interactions. And, it is where everything boils down to… I am a big fan of stories.😀
In the end, I treasure each story regardless of source or details that I remember (my memory is not exactly top notch) but how it made me feel.
Now, time to get back to another story.
