What are your three favorite television dramas of all time?
Breaking Bad, the Shield, and Game of Thrones

What are your three favorite television comedies of all time?
Louie, Community, and Flight of the Conchords

What prematurely aborted or cancelled television series (and its consequent lack of closure) has left you utterly empty inside?
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It was based on a movie series that should have ended with the second film, and had an absurdly long title. It should have never been as good as it was, but it was quality entertainment, and I ate it up. It went out with a cliffhanger that dared the network to cancel it. They did.

What do you consider to be the most satisfying television series finale ever?
The Shield. The finale solidified the show as a classic tragedy. A very testosterone fueled tragedy.

What is a favorite film that you consider to be obscure or unknown to others?
Attack the Block. Not super obscure, but I still don’t feel like enough people have seen it.

What is a film you have seen that you consider to be an unforgivable waste of your precious time?
I still want my money back from Transformers 2.
