Re-Run Recharge

It's no secret to friends that I highly enjoy or even prefer re-runs of shows to trying to get into a new series, any day of the week. My fetish of I Love Lucy, All in the Family, Roseanne and Sex and City or even the long-running Saturday Night Live, creates a fictional world where I begin to invest in characters I see each time. I believe this is why I don't find movies to appealing, because after 2-hours, I will never see those characters again.

New research is finding that escaping into a rerun of familiar characters, sets and themes is actually doing your brain a great deal of recharging.
