Twenty Questions, Minus Five

I've never done a meme before, so I'm borrowing this one from Culture Kills...wait, I mean Cutlery. I skipped the gaming part, because I don't do that.

Literature:

Best books you read in school: The Count of Monte Cristo, Ordinary People and Catch-22.

Books you hated in school: Silas Marner.

Book you keep meaning to read but haven't gotten around to: Train by Pete Dexter and Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson.

Favorite Author: Can’t do just one, and these are just the contemporary authors. In alphabetical order, Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, James Ellroy, Carl Hiaasen, and John Irving.

Place from a book you'd like to inhabit: The San Francisco of The Maltese Falcon or the Los Angeles of The Big Sleep.

Television:

Favorite show all time: NYPD Blue – Saw every episode, all 12 years worth.

Favorite Theme Song: The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

Have you ever bought a series on DVD that you didn't watch on TV first: Firefly, and the first two seasons of 24.

If you had to stop watching a particular show, which would be your first choice: Easy: ER. Other than force of habit, I’m not sure why I’m still watching.

Should NYPD Blue-style swearing and partial nudity be back on the air: Absolutely.

Film:

Best Shootout: The final scene in L.A. Confidential.

Best Car Chase: To Live and Die in L.A.

Best Fight Sequence: Uma Thurman’s first fight in Kill Bill, Vol. 1.

Character actor you love to hate: Either M. Emmet Walsh, or the guy who played the evil father in Dead Poets Society.

Someone who should be in every movie released this year: George Clooney and Nicole Kidman.

Will definitely have to put you on my tag list. Sure you're game?

Jeff, I thought you might have went with 5 music questions myself.

MC-- the anti-tagger meme maker.

Anthony,

Hmmm...what exactly would I be getting myself into?

Matt,

Good idea...wish I'd thought of it. Maybe I'll do my own "anti-tag music meme."
