Name your favorite movie actor: Do I have to pick just one? I’ll watch almost anything if it’s starring Gene Hackman, Alan Arkin, or Robert De Niro (in his Raging Bull days—not so much lately)
Name your favorite movie actress: Again—only one? Glenn Close, Sally Field, and Meg Ryan (before she got her face done—now it just makes me sad to see her).
Name your favorite tv actor: What is with the limited choices? Jimmy Smits, Martin Sheen, John Krasinski
Name your favorite tv actress: OK—now I’m getting irritated. Mary Tyler Moore, Tyne Daly, Julia Louis Dreyfus
Name your favorite television show right now: I really like The Middle. My favorite character is Brick. (“Brick!”)
Name a few really cool movies you’ve recently seen: It’s not recent AT ALL, but the first movie that came to mind was The King’s Speech– for a lot of reasons.
Your favorite canceled television show: OK—this is going back a ways—but I never understood why “My So-Called Life” got cancelled after only one season back in the 90s. That was one of the most true-to-life shows about teens that I can remember. Of course, Claire Danes has done quite well for herself since then . . .
Name one movie you wish you hadn’t wasted time/money on recently: Coming up empty here—let’s move on!
You would never watch a movie with: someone who insists on talking all the way through it. Focus, people!
Favorite candy/food to watch movies with: Buttered popcorn is a must, followed very closely by something chocolate.
Three favorite tv channels: Bravo, TLC, MSNBC
Favorite reality or competition show: Real Housewives of Orange County—it has absolutely nothing to do with my life or with anyone I know, so it’s total junk food for my brain. I make no apologies.
Cable or satellite? cable
Do you watch more movies at home or at the theater? Probably evenly split.
Is there a time of year that you watch more tv? Winter—it’s part of my hibernation routine!
