I'm not poo-pooing my friends. They greatly enjoy their hobby, and I greatly enjoy learning about film from them. There just comes the time when the sheer MAGNITUDE hits me. There's a reason that I can't keel up! For us, watching a season of Dr. Who takes three months. If we cranked and ignored all other media, we might hit fifty films in a year. This year should be easier for film, but I don't see us hitting twenty films for the entire year.
Maybe we can catch up with last year.
I really can't tsk-tsk their choice of hobbies. My game playing and my wiki editing used to suck down 3-4 hours a night. At that rate, I could crank through 1-2 films a day, easy. However, these hobbies really don't translate well into general conversation. "Hey, how about that HTML use in MediaWiki..." That, and somebody has to show me those films that I have never seen.
