I'm not a big TV fan. Actually I never watch it, but I do watch when shows become available online. What are your top three shows you like. (if you watch TV that is) If you don't, then top three movies?

TV:
-----
CBS Evening news
Discovery Network Channels (Science, Discovery, History, H2, etc, yada, yada...)
Big Bang Theory
 

Movies:

----------
Fantasy: 
Sucker Punch (Emily Browning and Scott Glenn)
Awesome music coupled with fantastic fantasy sequences
Quotes: 
"If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything"
and
"Who honors those we love for the very life we live?
Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we will never die?
Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies?
Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend? Who chains us? And Who holds the key that can set us free...
It's You. You have all the weapons you need. Now Fight!"

 

 

Notable songs from above soundtrack:

Army of Me   5:19

White Rabbit   12:10

Tomorrow Never Knows 26:50

When the music is coupled with the movie's visual fantasy sequences, they come to life !

 

 

Comedy:
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Monty Python Troupe)
There are so many funny and quotable lines, I know not where to begin...

 

Drama;  well there are just too many to be a favorite.

 

There are two movies that do standout.

A Taiwanese movie with English subtitles; Eat, Drink, Man, Woman

It might be Taiwanese but is the "human spirit" and thus it has no country. 

Therefore the movie was remade for the American market called Tortilla Soup which stars;

Hector Elizandro, Elizabeth Pena, Rachel Welch and Paul Rodriguez

 

If you have seen one you must see the other !

Somebody likes Sucker Punch

 

Actually looking at just the initial screen shot I thought it would be another one of the hundreds of lame shows. 

After watching part of it from an Android tablet while out on a camping trip I decided I needed to watch the full show when I got home.

I think it was an amazing show due to such a vivid wild imagination and some well carried out special effects and reasonably good acting as well

A pleasantly surprising movie for me.

I grew up on Star Trek, and liked everything except Voyager and Enterprise.

I also like Stargate SG-1 and Babylon 5.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world...

Would have to either rent or purchase or get lucky to watch an airing of it.

 

Sarah's Key (2010) - IMDB

Sarah's Key - Wikipedia
 

Sarah's Key follows an American journalist's present-day investigation into the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup of Jews in German-occupied Paris in 1942. It tells the story of young girl Sarah's experiences during and after these events, illustrating the participation of the French bureaucracy while also showing how other French citizens hid and protected Sarah from Vichy France authorities.[3]

The film alternates between Sarah's life in 1942 and the journalist researching the story in 2009.



Sarah's Key on DVD @ Amazon - Price: $6.99 & FREE Shipping on orders over $25

Breaking Bad

 

+1

Probably the best TV drama ever.

(And a series creator/writer smart enough to go out "on top"!)

 

(Still working on the rest of my list.)
