TELEVISION Mostly whatever my three-year-old is watching. My wife and I are rewatching 30 Rock, which in my estimation is the best show ever. BOOKS I’ve been on a Patricia Highsmith kick for the last my entire life. I just finished The Cry of the Owl. Every bit as excellent as her classics. I also…

TELEVISION – Zombies. I love zombies. The Walking Dead. Fear the Walking Dead. Both shows are very different from when they first began.

TELEVISION The joke in this house is that my husband is all about movies and I’m all about TV; I love a great series, the kind that has season-long arcs, memorable characters. I’ve been doing a lunch rewatch of Fargo, season 1, recently. I love the storytelling, the characters, the intricate way the threads weave…
