Breaking Bad and Dexter are two of my favourites. They are both pretty unique ideas and the plots of both shows are full of suspense and unexpected twists.

I haven't really thought about what my favourite movie would be, I get bored of almost any movie if I see it too many times. Having said that, I thought about it and I think two of my favourite movies are musicals. I like music a lot, and I really like the music in Heavy Metal and Pink Floyd's The Wall.

Don't eat too many mushrooms before watching those movies though.

I have every Dexter episode, I love that one also... I haven't gotten into Breaking Bad because I know I will love it, I want to sooner or later though...

Thought of a couple more TV shows that I quite enjoy.

Wilfred. It's different and funny.

Lisence to Drill. You think they work hard on Deadlieast Catch? Try working on a drill rig. I have worked on drill rigs, and it's fcuking tough. Just as dangerous too, but at least you run less risk of drowning.

I haven't spent much time watching TV lately, though I enjoy the Office, Once Upon a Time (not my usual cup of tea, but I enjoy it), and pretty much most documentaries and dog-related programs (the BBC did a good documentary a few years back called Pedigree Dogs Exposed- a little biased, but definitely exposes truths in dog breeding I believe anyone with a purebred dog should consider watching).

Movies... Airplane! And A Land Before Time.

All time favorite movie-City of God. Its a little bit based on a true story and such a great film.

Favorite TV Shows now: Dexter, Game of Thrones, and Spartacus!Each has a great combination of sex and violence which is fun. Dexter is just such a great original character that I have never seen before, A monster that hunts other monsters.

The walking dead is abt a group of ppl trying to survive from zombies. Hmm not sure abt the mixed review but I simply love this show. Originally it is from a comic book, then they came out this show but the storyline didn't follow exactly the same as comic. U shld watch it if you're a zombie fan. Hehe..

My fave tv shows:

Mock The Week
Have I got News For You
10 O'Clock Live (Ch.4)
Q.I.

Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe
Charlie Brooker's Newswipe
How TV Ruined Your Life

As you can see, I really like Charlie Brooker's stuff. :cool:

Movies? Hmm... "Das Boot" probably. Amazing film, but the 6 hour dvd version of the miniseries, NOT the "director's cut" 2 hour version which is a shadow of the original.

The Right Stuff is fabulous too.

That's what springs to mind right now anyway.
