I love television, movies and plays.  Here are some of my most loved (think romance, think fantasy, think heroes, think history–I’m nothing if not consistent):


  1. Castle
  2. Outlander
  3. Game of Thrones
  4. Big Bang Theory
  5. Quantum Leap
  6. X-Files
  7. Firefly
  8. Lost in Space
  9. Smallville (the post-Lana years; I’m a Clark and Lois fan)
  10. Blacklist
  11. Forever


  1. Star Wars, New Hope–favorite movie of all time  (figure I’ve seen it 100 times in the last 27 years)
  2. Star Wars (all–partial to IV-VI-eagerly awaiting VII)
  3. Lord of the Rings (all–very close 2nd to Star Wars)
  4. Hobbit (all–Martin Freeman’s casting as Bilbo is sheer genius)
  5. Harry Potter (all)
  6. Guardians of the Galaxy (seen it three times in the theater-once by myself)
  7. Thor
  8. Avengers
  9. Dear Frankie
  10. Waitress
  11. Strictly Ballroom
  12. Pirates of the Caribbean (the first is my favorite, but I love the others as well)
  13. Princess Bride
  14. Apollo 13
  15. It’s a Wonderful Life (December is all Christmas, all the time)
  16. The Santa Clause (see #15)
  17. Casper (got to have a Halloween fix)
  18. Superman (the first and second with Christopher Reeves are my favorites, but I do like Man of Steel)
  19. The Dark Knight (I can watch it for Heath Ledger’s performance alone.  I find it astonishing even after seeing it a dozen times.)
  20. A Knight’s Tale
  21. Chronicles of Narnia (Lion, Witch and Wardrobe is my favorite by a lot, but I love the others too)

And don’t get me started on Disney!
