Funny. But personally I prefer TV to movies in opposition to the idea that it wasn't good enough to be a movie is why it's on TV. With a movie you may have the budget, and the big studio behind it to push the project and promotion. But TV has the time (not to mention production values are almost equal now) to develop a really good arc that could not be covered in a 2 hour movie. Think of Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek DS9, Lost, X-Files, Babylon 5, Stargate Atlantis, Farscape, the list goes on of stories that take years to be told properly. Also, character development happens in a more natural way rather than the movie's forced time frame.

Yeah. And I still have a stuffed ALF buried in my closet, I may have to keep my sword nearby tonight.
Alf is only a danger to cats, temptation makes me want to use the phrase "don't be a *****" but, I won't...
