Right now, I have two shows that I absolutely adore and would hate myself for missing a single episode: LOST, and Breaking Bad. Everybody knows about LOST, so I'll spare you from telling you how awesome it is. Breaking Bad, however, is less known, but equally awesome. Also, it's a lot easier to follow, because there's no flashing in any direction (that sounded better in my head). I got into it last season, which was the second season, and I was hooked after a single episode. I went back and watched the first season, and it was excellent. It stars Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with cancer and also finds out his wife is pregnant with a random mid-life crisis baby. To bring in some extra money, he gets in touch with a former student and becomes a cooker of meth while aforementioned student deals. It takes place in Albuquerque, and is actually filmed there, so it automatically gets points for authenticity.

DEFINITELY my favorite show, LOST in a close second, and Community and Venture Brothers come in at 3rd and 4th.

Will do day 4 later, to catch up.

Generally my response for this is either Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass or The Hitchhiker's Guide series. Both very well written books, and the latter a laugh riot. Any self-respecting nerd needs to have read these books.

As far as more modern ("modern" here having the meaning of released in the last 10 years), there's not a lot that has impressed me. Christopher Moore definitely fills the void left by Douglass Adams, though his books aren't so much sci-fi. Bloodsucking Fiends and its sequel You Suck are worth checking out if you want to read GOOD, contemporary vampire fiction that is also funny. Also Chat Kultgen is funny, as long as you think sexism is funny, and Max Barry for more dry whit.

I digress. Hitchhiker's Guide is my favorite book.
