Clicky thing

I usually control the TV remote in our house. I don't think it's because H is hen-pecked, but I'm more interested in culture and media and stuff. He trusts me to do the picking. I choose the film when we go to the cinema together, too. I use my powers for good, though, I try to pick a film we'll both like. I did go spectacularly wrong on one occasion - dragging H along to see 'Johnny Mnemonic' ooh boy, he was not pleased. He didn't like 'Sin City' either, but we agreed on that. I don't know if my opinion was influenced by his utter disgust with it.

So, who does it in your house?
