  1. 2002 is way over the average because I was out of work for six months and there is absolutely nothing on daytime TV. Not really sure why so few in 2006. 
  2. The numbers here are a little skewed, especially movies seen in theaters. For the first few years of this database, I didn't keep track of each viewing separately; each viewing replaced the previous viewing. Therefore, if I saw a movie in the theater and subsequently watched it on HBO, the theater entry was lost, which is why there are so few theater entries.

    Additionally, DVDs have drastically altered the way I watch movies. Since viewing a movie on my home theater setup is not unlike a theater experience, and the cost of going to the theater keeps going up, my threshold of what movies I go to see in a theater has changed over the years. These days, I generally see movies in the theater when the movie going experience will be amazing in the theater that cannot be recreated at home, such as Spider-Man 3 or Pirates of the Caribbean, or if it's part of a date (which usually means a chick flick).
