I love pretty much everything Sci-Fi. I am also a wuss, and I don't
care much for horror. I do enjoy a lot of other genres, but Sci-Fi
is where it's at.
Books: My all time favorite is not actually a Sci-Fi book, it's
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.
Some others are:
The Harry Potter series, The Dark Tower series, pretty much all
books and short stories by Isaac Asimov, The Chronic(WHAT)cles of
Narnia, Ender's Game (the author is a bit of a douche but the story
is a must read), and of course The Lord of the Rings.
TV Shows: I'm a netflix junkie, I'll be honest. Obviously some of
my top picks are Sci-Fi, so Firefly, BSG, the various Star Trek
series (my favorite is TNG), and so forth. But I'm also a HUGE
Arrested Development fan. And even though most people I know never
get my references, I'm a big Seinfeld fan as well. I have a thing
for enjoying shows/movies/music that are not part of my generation.
Right now I'm watching The Office.
Movies: LOTR almost goes without saying. I really like the new Star
**LENS FLARE** Trek series of movies. There are a few really
obscure titles that I like that I think deserve mention: PI,
Primer, and The Man from Earth. These are all lesser known low
budget Sci-Fi movies that really deserve some attention.
Music: I'm really big into classic rock, alt rock and 80s/90s pop.
I'm not so big into metal or modern pop. I really don't care for
most country music. Hip-hop/rap is hit or miss. I'll listen to
almost anything once, although you would have to force me to listen
to modern country. Classic country is more bearable.
