Old news. I remember when, in Western countries at any rate, you didn't move down (movies to TV), you moved up. But these days all the big actors are moving back to TV; it's more practical. You can go pay 1800 yen to see one episode of what will ultimately be like a TV mini-series anyway, or you can just watch it for free (well, cable fee) on the boob-tube at home, weekly. TV is FAR more diverse than it used to be -- you have an entire genre based on zombies, and the major networks coming up with 20 or so pilots a year. TV is much better than movies these days, the only real difference being you're less likely to be distracted at a movie theater, and have more popcorn, than at home.

The movies have become so boring that I can't watch them any longer. It's a good thing that there are still good books out there.

Well TV series will always have the advantage of being able to explore depths of stories and characters, etc. much further than movies as they're simply longer as well.
