Shows: NCIS and Bones are my favorite dramas as well as Castle. Other dramas (mostly crime procedurals of some variety) include CSI: and CSI:NY (not CSI:Miami, can't stand David Caruso). I seldom watch reality shows, but I love Dancing With the Stars. I also enjoy So You Think You Can Dance, and Project Runway.

Authors: Most of the books I read are scifi, fantasy, and paranormal fiction. I'm currently reading Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series, Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series, and Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series. I've also started reading George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. Other authors I like include Mercedes Lackey (Valdemar and Elemental Masters series), Anne McCaffrey (Dragonriders of Pern, Crystal Singer trilogy) and Marion Zimmer Bradley (Darkover series.
