A Few Good Men! The Princess Bride! Dead Poets' Society! And a whole bunch of the movies already listed (The Cutting Edge and Shawshank, in particular). I heart TBS!
Fun Fact: "That guy with the gun who shot someone at that party" is Stephen Salvatore from one of Choire's favorite shows, The Vampire Diaries. The more you know.
@jfruh Excuse me, you forgot Nana's first name: "The." (But yes, she should be on this list.)
@Nicole Cliffe@facebook You read my mind! I was trying to remember the name of the Christopher Pike book that freaked me out and it was, indeed, "Whisper of Death." It did not even occur to me at the time that it was anti-abortion -- I just thought it was a sad ending? Because accidents happen? So I guess gold star for me for resisting indoctrination?
@Rollo I am personally offended by this comment.
Number 1 is correct. The rest of the list is incorrect.
This list pretty clearly was written by a 20-something, as proven by the missing My So-Called Life and Sports Night.
And even a young should have included Veronica Mars. And probably Pushing Daisies.
(Totally agree with Freaks & Geeks as number 1, though!)
Agreed! I was verrrry resistant because I generally dislike silly monster-of-the-week shows, but Eccleston and Tennant were SO GOOD and the real stories -- about character evolution and relationships (and not with a capital R just like, how a centuries year old half man/half god impacts those around him) -- were just brilliant. It's worth the silly monsters!
And this one in particularly is quite unsucky.
"Broadway" by the Old 97's is also an excellent choice.
