Should I replace all the electrolytic capacitors if I find a bad one?

When a bad capacitor is found in a TV, the question of course arises as to the likelihood of other capacitors going bad in short order. It might be worth checking (other) caps in the power supply or hot (temperature) areas but you could spend you whole life replacing ALL the electrolytics in your older equipment!
