I sometimes tend to do so. It's usually when I can't find a show or film out there, that would match my interests 100%. I then start to seek for some better shows and I sometimes don't even notice that I've been changing channels for like 5 minutes already. My mother gets angry too, she wonders how can I see whats up on the other channels if I change them so quickly. Perhaps I have fast eyes that catch and identify these quickly changing pictures fast.

yes, very much. I cannot watch tv without the remote set. Not even for a minute as when the adds come, changing of channels is must for me. but before, in my dad's time , changing channels were almost impossible as he never let us do that. He was against changing of channels.

I don't really do this much, but when I was married my ex-husband would do this a lot. It seemed like he would be the worst at it when we were watching something I wnted to watch. Every time there was a commercial he would grab the remote and start flipping through the channels to see what else was on. Um--hello??? I'm watching something right now, it's not like I was going to agree to watch something else when we were watching one of my shows! In case that sounds selfish, I had very few shows I refused to miss and so it was very frustrating when he would do that. It was definitely controlling behavior on his part, he would laugh the whole time and most of the time my show had already come back on by the time he got back to my channel.

I tend to check out the guide ahead of time and stick with 1 channel. My husband on the other hand is always flicking between channels - during commercials is fine, but I get pretty ticked when he tries to watch 2 shows at the same time, back and forth, back and forth - gives me a headache - lol!
