If you and DH/SO have a spacific TV show you both like...

Do either of you watch it without the other?

I have known a few couples that have certain tv shows they will both like and watch together. Usually it is a show thats been on for years and they are watching the seasons on netflix or something. When I ask if they have seen XYZ season or episode, I always seem to hear that they haven't made it that far because their SO doesn't want them to watch it without them. Yet their SO, is usually to busy to watch tv at all or chooses to watch something else when they do watch tv.

The other day we were watching a certain show and a friend came over. He said he couldn't watch it because his wife would get mad. He said they have been watching it together for a while, but haven't gotten past the first season (out of 6-7) because she never feels like watching it when they have time together, but wont let him watch it without her.

DH and I have certain shows we both like, but we dont restrict each other from only watching them with each other. We would never see them if we did that. We dont get a lot of time together without DS around, so when we do, we usually do other things and then watch the tv show on our own time.

Would you get mad if your SO watched it without you or vise versa?

The only show that we would not watch without the other is Walking Dead.  The other ones don't really matter.

 But what if one of you were not in the mood to watch that spacific show for weeks or months? Would you get upset if he watched it without you? or the other way around?

Quoting KayelynnsMama:

Yes! We love watching our shows together.

LOL, nope. But we can't get mad with one another if one of us has to rewatch episodes because we did. We usually don't though, just giggle and watch the other's reaction to the big moments.

We don't watch tv but do have several series on DVD or Netflix that we both enjoy.  We always watch together and yes, I would be disappointed if he watched an episode without me.

We would jokingly get mad, but it's usually not a problem. When we are watching a show together we usually carve out time for at least one episode a day.

Eh, DH has watched a few episodes without me, but it's not really a show where if you miss an episode you're completely lost. Plus it's on Netflix, so I can usually go back and watch it on my own anyway. Or he's happy to watch it again lol

I would not get mad but neither of us would do it.

When our kids are in bed then we sit and watch our show. It is something we enjoy doing together. We make spending time together a priority. We don't always watch TV but we do something together.

It's actually my daughter that's the problem! She's always too busy to watch with me but she gets real pissy if I watch without her :/
