Modern TV series are better than blockbuster films.

There is no doubt that both modern TV series and blockbusters can be interesting. Some people claim that TV series are more entertaining that blockbusters, whereas others do not think so.

To my way of thinking, TV series are far preferable to blockbusters for a number of reasons. Firstly, TV series are entertaining. They allow people to relax after the working day rather than challenge the brain too much. Secondly, TV series depict our life, tell us about the events which can occur in reality. They are lots of dramatic events, like murders, divorces or affairs. All these make them very attractive. Thirdly, the intimacy of television, combined with the amount of time that actors spend in specific roles, means that television characters become the extended family of viewers.

However, some argue that blockbusters are a worthwhile alternative. In their belief, this kind of movies is more spectacular because they have many special effects and famous cinema stars. That is why audience admire them.

Nevertheless, I tend to disagree with this point of view. Of course, special effects play a big role in motion pictures, but it is not the most important feature, because the plot is more important. However, there is considerable sameness about the storyline of most modern blockbusters. For example, there is usually a hero who saves the world.

To sum up, in spite of the fact that some believe that blockbusters are more spectacular, I am strongly convinced that modern TV series retain the upper hand.
