For me, watching TV is a social experience. I'm always trying to recreate the experience of watching silly shows with my family, or watching sports games at a bar where everyone is knowledgeable & rooting for the team. It's not a social experience in that you sit around and talk about things unrelated to the TV, you're watching first, chatting second, and chat is primarily related to the show or making fun of it. It's very rare that I can actually find people to do this with in real life, but I've recently discovered that watching TV & chatting online is very similar. People are knowledgeable, some are dumb and you make fun of them, people make jokes and post links related to the show. It's good times.
