Life without TV shows

TV shows

No doubt watching movies is a good thing and a hobby to many, but I believe that most of the people would not be happy without watching their favorite TV shows. TV serials can be quite addictive. While movies are just for three hours maximum, TV shows go on and on and that’s why the audience builds a connection with the characters that they watch every day on the screen. This is one of the reasons why some TV shows are aired every year in the form of different seasons.
