Boardwalk empire, walking dead, curb your enthusaism, SNL, family guy, TV. is good especially watching it at the gym.
Books? I get enough with textbooks
21 Jumpstreet was funny, The Departed is the greatest movie I ever saw in a theater, Raging Bull & Goodfellas best of all time, classic horror movies not that remake crap they turn out now. Anything Quentin Tarantino makes you have to buy it.
