They alternate from "eesh, painful" to "well, there's a twist."
When I'm in the mode of "what shall I watch while I do other things; how about we try to watch something we haven't instead of just rewatching something beloved yet again, could we try something at least a little new? But not something to which we have to pay too much attention?" The solution is to watch something I haven't but of which I know the plot. Which means I end up seeing a lot of Golden Films animated adaptations of everything Disney has already done. Sorta embarrassing to admit it.
