Some are recent, some aren't. I will admit I'm a t.v./movies junkie.
I wonder, do other NF's feel like books/t.v./movies are a way to just escape from reality and into our imaginations? I'm sure other types do this as well but it seems like it's especially important for NF's, at least this one. I like watching reality television or other fluff like shows to I can shut off for a while.
