On books, the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant is my out and out
favourite right now. I'd be such a Stewart in that world! Other
favourites are Dan Abnett and David Gemell. Also I adore
Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff, not the least to do with actually
knowing the guy. Kinda breaks your brain a little when you see a
picture of Barak Obama reading something your mate wrote.
I like lots of movies, but the specific favourites are Pirates of
the Carribean, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Saving Private Ryan,
Avatar, The Princess Bride, Fight Club, the list goes on.
Series are Castle, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Babylon 5,
Futurama, Dr Who.
TV Shows (not that I watch them regularly) Mythbusters, The Daily
Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report.
