Most of the books I read are either satirical, historical, or political.
My favorite movie and television show of all time would probably have to be Pride and Prejudice and Friends. Though I like just about anything as long as it's not too gruesome, has a plot and isn't just really bad (e. any lifetime movie, Borat, Murder-set-pieces).
I really love foreign films, documentaries, musicals, and comedies. My favorite directors are Fernando Meirelles, Jose Padilha, Walter Salles, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Jean-Luc Godard, Gillo Pontecorvo, Bernardo Bertolucci, Giuseppe Tornatore, Roberto Benigni, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, J.A. Bayona, Christopher Zalla, The Farhadi family, WOODY ALLEN, Oliver Stone, Spike Lee, Stanley Kubrick, Anthony Minghella, Robert Mulligan, Sidney Lumet, Milos Forman, basically anyone who makes good movies.
I've watched/watch way too many television shows but my favorites would have to be: How I met your mother, New Girl, Community, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Fringe, The Office, Workaholics, Family Guy, South Park, The inbetweeners, Fire Fly, Eureka, Sherlock, Warehouse 13, True Blood, Weeds, The Big C, Entourage, Mad Men, and Downton Abbey
I love pasta of any kind and seafood!
