Do yourself a favor and take 4 and a half minutes to listen to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QpXlcGNVz0.
Movies: When I'm busy I tend to watch thoughtless comedy/action movies (escapism, I suppose). I also appreciate a really good period drama. In the past year or so, I've really liked the Avengers, Bridesmaids, Django Unchained, and the Dark Knight Rises. Other favorites - Amadeus, Real Genius, the Hangover, Tommy Boy, the Usual Suspects.
TV Shows: Buffy. Anything Bryan Fuller - Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me. Hannibal is amazing. Sherlock, Fringe, Parks and Rec, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, various British comedies (Peep Show, IT Crowd, Snuff Box, etc.), Arrested Development. I marathoned Battlestar Galactica last summer after I had ankle surgery, but I should probably watch it again since I was on percocet...
Music: My taste is kind of eclectic and changeable. Also, I don't really believe in genres. The only generalization I'm willing to make is that I usually like artists who are better live than recorded. I saw St. Vincent this fall and it was incredible. But as a sample of what I've been listening to recently: Chris Thile, Mountain Goats, Violent Femmes, Elvis Costello, Nick Drake, the Magnetic Fields, the Kinks, Mozart, Andrew Bird, Laura Marling (please listen to her new album right this instant!), Jimi Hendrix, Manu Chao, the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, Johnny Flynn, Nirvana, Villagers, tenThing (Norwegian all-female 10 piece brass ensemble), the Talking Heads, Patrick Watson. So sort of folk-y, with a mix of other good things.
Bonus points if you get what my username is referencing.
