I have two in one of my apartments, because I love cinema far too much to go without one. Other than watching films I've bought, I almost never use them. I don't have one in my other apartment. This is probably silly, because it's in France, where they actually have a lot of good talk shows. Something I always loved about one of my relatives was that he refused to have a television in his houses (he was a real intellectual, and had a remarkable book and antique collection), but his wife was one of the most popular newswomen in Milano! Maybe I'll have the same attitude one day, but the DVD technology is very good.
