Two shows I don't watch: Heroes and 24
Why? A self-imposed constraint that comes from my wife, whose argument can be summed as the following:
If we start watching it, chances are it will be as good as everyone says and we will love it. We will watch every episode already released to DVD and watch it every week, making it harder for us to do other things we would enjoy.In short, this is an opportunity cost minimizing strategy. We are intentionally not exposing ourselves to a show that we would enjoy because we do not think we would have the self-control to adhere to the proper constraints that should accompany it.
