Having recently obtained a TV with Netflix an Hulu, I am slowly
becoming acquainted with new shows. Old favorites include: 6 Feet
Under (arguably the best show I have ever seen), Dexter (jumped the
shark after Trinity), Modern Family, Downton Abbey and my current
fave, The Big Bang Theory.
Movie must-haves: The Godfather. Also, I'm a huge sucker for RDJ.
Anything RDJ. It doesn't even have to be good (I.e., The Singing
Detective). I'll just sit there and watch it. Most movies
pertaining to the Marvel Universe. Just about anything containing
Anthony Hopkins (Meet Joe Black being my favorite). Anything made
by/including Jon Favreau. Anything made by Clint Eastwood. Just
about anything made by Ron Howard.
Regarding literature: I consistently work on reading the
classics--I wouldn't want to miss something good. Currently working
on Garlic & Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise.
Trying hard to keep up with all the details in Song of Ice and
Fire. But my go-to is always Stephen King: scary or not, good story
or not, he always compels you to care about his characters. I have
read the Dark Tower series in total at least 6 times.
