I will forgive almost anything, if the context is right.
Alodovar and Fassbinder are also great.
Shows? Honestly, who has the time for brodcast media anymore? My favourite podcasts are HR2 Der Tag, BBCR4 Start the Week, BBCR3 Nighwaves and the Economist & FT feeds.
Food: I like food. Anything prepared with thought and care. I like it fresh, not too heavy and simple, but I can aslo go for a lavish curry or a sensational steak. I basically like most food, any further info is gonna be pointless.
