Sweet Alaskan Asparagus Tips!

Daily Prompt #1876

What movies or TV series have you watched more than 5 times?

I have to admit, I’m not one to rewatch things over and over. I prefer to explore new movies and shows. Having said that, there are a few things I’ve rewatched.


There are probably a few other movies that I’ve seen more than 5 times, but these are the ones that come to mind immediately. The first couple will probably be very popular answers among those who answered today’s daily prompt, but the last one might surprise you (unless you really know me, in which case this will be no surprise at all).

Star Wars IV: A New Hope (1977)
Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Star Wars VI: The Return of the Jedi (1983)
Ernest Goes to Camp (1987)
Earnest Saves Christmas (1988)
Ernest Goes to Jail (1990)
RocketMan (1997)

You may have been wondering what connection today’s blog post title had to the movies and TV shows discussed. That is, unless you’re a nerd like me and you’ve seen RocketMan like 12 times or more (and that’s just counting the times I watched it in 1997).

Well, this movie is a must-watch for all fans of goofy humor. RocketMan is chock-full of one-liners that you’ll be repeating to your kids someday (and they’ll give you that look like, “Huh?”)

Comedian Harland Williams is absolutely hilarious in this movie – of course, you’ll only think so if you are a middle-school boy (or a full-grown man).

I think this first section is very revealing. It shows you a glimpse of my personality. Like I said, I don’t rewatch very many movies, at least not 5 or more times, so if it’s not science fiction or a ridiculous comedy, it didn’t make it into this section.

I’ve seen these a couple times, and it won’t be long before I’ve them 5 times or more:
The Indiana Jones series (1981-1989)
Explorers (1985)
The Final Countdown (1980)
Innerspace (1987)
The Lord of the Rings series (2001-2003)
The Harry Potter series (2001-2011)
The Hobbit series (2012-2014)
The Dark Knight (Batman) series (2005-2012)
Interstellar (2014)

So, I’ve seen these movies a number of times, and with just a few more watches, they’ll be ready to be bumped up into the top section.

TV Shows

I can’t think of any TV shows that I’ve seen more than 5 times, but there are several I’ve seen that are worth watching more than once:

Star Trek TNG (1987-1994)
The Office (2005-2013)
Smallville (2001-2011)
Stargate SG1 (1997-2007)

Sorry this post took so long to prepare and post! I think this daily prompt was from two or three days ago.

It’s March, and Spring is just around the corner.

In the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time to get the garden started, and the bicycle tires aired up. The gloom of winter will soon pass, and the sun will be our companion. What is one thing you will do this year to make this your best summer yet? Share your ideas in the comments.

The Nutcracker Trilogy

I will continue to shamelessly promote these books because I’m so excited about being a small part of Drosselmeyer’s journey. If you’re new here, let me encourage you to check out The Nutcracker Trilogy by Paul Thompson. All three books are available in print and as e-books. Books one and two are available as audiobooks, narrated by yours truly. Click the links below to explore.

Oh, and it doesn’t have to be Christmas for you to enjoy these stories (just like it doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy Harry Potter).
