For me it's more... I can deal with watching TV without subtitles, but I prefer it. For movies though, it's a must. ^^;

(Even when I had french subtitles on my downloads of How I Met Your Mother, I still read them out of habit even though I don't understand any french. XD)
I've even got my family into the habit now...! :nod:
Queenie, you mentioned that you watch TV on your laptop, I was wondering what software/program do you use?
plus, just to stay somewhat on topic, a few of my friends have that issue too, they absolutly have to have the captions on. Sometimes I dont mind captions, especially when a character/person has a thick accent. However, I find that sometimes I miss things in the scene while Im busy reading the captions.
