  1. Breaking Bad (television show on AMC)
  2. Margin Call (motion picture)
  3. How Do You Do--Mayer Hawthorne (music)
  4. Sons of Anarchy (television show on FX)
  5. Skippy Dies by Paul Murray (novel)

  18. The Hour (televison show on BBC America)
  19. The Walking Dead (television show on AMC)  *
  20. "Rumor Has It"--Adele (song from her 21 album)  *
I put stars by the ones I agree with.  The Lincoln Lawyer...AWESOME! The Walking Dead...also AWESOME! I adore Adele.  Most of the others I do not watch, have not seen, heard, or read, or have seen (Final Destination 5), but was not fond of.  I will take very seriously his book recommendations though!

  1. I LOVE Sons of Anarchy!! So I definitely agree there - - the show is phenomenal. I also agree about Revenge; really well done show.

    I'd be curious to know what SK thinks about American Horror Story; it seems right up his alley.
