Maybe don't consume media you don't enjoy, if you don't enjoy it find something else to do.>>226537

So does anyone have any advice? Or are you all like me where you are always completely aware and distant from any sort of scripted media consumption?
when you reach the point of consumption where you're checking off stuff on a list… i don't think it's possible anymore to become absorbed in something unless the subject truly fascinates and interests you. probably take some time to discover what your favorite subjects are.
The trick for me is to find some aspect of it and latch onto it, not necessarily having to do with the story or characters. For instance, I watched The Third Man recently because I'm told it's a classic that everyone should see. I noticed early on that the movie constantly using dutch angles, so I paid attention to how that was used through the movie. I couldn't tell you much of anything about the story but I can tell you a little bit about how those angles are used as a communication device to the audience, and how we're meant to interpret Orson Welles's character through them.
That isn't the answer you're looking for since it's enjoyment of a technical aspect and not the experience of the media itself, but that is how I keep myself engaged. I trick myself into thinking I'm learning how some skill is applied in art.

This. It's honestly pretty rare for me to get into something enough that I'd describe myself as "absorbed" in it. That's what makes those shows / stories special.
