This reminds me of when I watched Top Gun (original) when I was in a children's home. One of the other kids sat there saying the script word for word at the same time as the actors. He must have watched it over and over to be able to do that.

I have been known to enjoy watching repeats of certain things myself but not to that extreme.

I thought it was quite funny at the time.

Skipping to favorite scenes in TV shows and watching them several times--yes. Especially those "key" moments of character development, emotion, or important "reveals."

The last week or so, I've been watching and re-watching "The Witcher" on Netflix over and over and over... From Episode 1 Season 1, all the way through the end of Season 2. (In my off hours each evening.) As soon as I get to the end, I find myself flipping back to the beginning and starting over again. So rare to find such a captivating story with excellent actors and characters, and each time I re-watch it, I notice something new. I think I've watched both seasons at least four or five times by now... Not sure how many more repetitions I'll indulge in before moving on to the next thing, but who cares? It's simultaneously entertaining and comforting... I guess maybe a form of "stimming" (?)

Like going back to visit old friends who never get tired of seeing you. Anyone else relate?

I find myself watching the same Austin Powers clips over again on YouTube.

There are a few movies that I watch over and over again, but I don’t single out specific scenes. I watch them from beginning to end.

This is how I am on Emergency!-- that NBC medical/action series of the 70s grew on me very quickly, especially because of its two main characters (firemen/paramedics John Gage [Randolph Mantooth] and Roy DeSoto [Kevin Tighe]); it wasn't just them though, because the doctors and nurse at Rampart General Hospital also grew on me (Dr. Kelly Brackett [Robert Fuller], nurse Dixie McCall [Julie London], Dr. Joe Early [Bobby Troup] and Dr. Mike Morton [Ron Pinkard]).

Long story short, all those characters have made that series well-worth the money on DVD for me.

I sometimes watch the scene of Mary Henry driving her car into the night and seeing the ghostly Herk Harvey (the director) appear beside and before her car in the 1962 black and white thriller, Carnival of Souls.

I watch some scenes over and over but then I am analyzing the scenes.
