    1. What other TV shows do you really like (past or present)? That is a logical question. [​IMG] Most long time board members know I like any of the Star Treks.

    3. What would you say is your one favourite TV show of all time? Mission: Impossible (TOS).

    4. Do you have a favourite movie collection (eg. Lord of the Rings, POTC, Star Wars etc)? Star Trek

    5. What would you say is your one favourite movie of all time? Hard to call, but possibly Our Man Flint.

    6. Do you have a favourite actor/actress? Too many (sorry Emily). That's like going into Baskin Robbins and trying to pick a favorite flavor.

    7. Who is your favourite author? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    8. What is your favourite book? Can't decide.

    Oh, this is a brilliant idea and thread! :D

    1. What other TV shows do you really like (past or present)?
    Well, of course CSI (and its spin-offs, CSI:Miami and CSI:NY)), though Miami is starting to annoy me, and New York is on hiatus until Chanel 5 has finished airing S7 of original CSI. I watch Numb3rs and House religiously at the moment and I catch some old re-runs of The Simpsons and Family Guy at some times. I also watch Extreme Home Makeover:Home Edition and Star Trek: TNG (God, I love Picard) and has recently started watching Heroes. Trouble is , it airs the same time as CSI:Miami. Previously, I watched every crime-show possible and I still enjoy L&O (especially SVU) and Cold Case. And Scrubs of course, but it airs too late unfortnantely. :(

    I am also a huuuge fan of BBC's new production of Robin Hood. :D October 6th I tell you. Also, I love about everything Auntie Beeb has given us, Doctor Who for example.

    For the anime-TV-series I enjoy Ouran Host Club High School. It makes me happy.

    2. Do you collect merchandise/memorabilia for any of these shows? If so, what do you have?
    Well, I have a CSI T-shirt and the Fingerprint kit bought from the CBS store in New York. I also have one book, "Cold Burn", and DVD boxes CSI (fourth season) and CSI:Miami (first season) respectively. Not so much TV-series merchandise, but I do have a lot of Star Wars memorabilia! :lol:

    3. What would you say is your one favourite TV show of all time?
    I can't. I'd love to say CSI, because I truly adore the show, but I think it is a tie in between Robin Hood and CSI.

    4. Do you have a favourite movie collection (eg. Lord of the Rings, POTC, Star Wars etc)?
    I have the entire DVD box for LOTR, special edition. I also have Star Wars episodes 4,5,6,2 and 3, but my dear brother "borrowed" it to a friend who claimed it had been "stolen". :mad: My little brother still owes me money.

    5. What would you say is your one favourite movie of all time?
    Ahh! To hard! Star Wars: "The Empire Strikes Back" and "A New Hope" are two of them. But I also love "The Silence of The Lambs". And anything Disney or Austen-ish.

    6. Do you have a favourite actor/actress?
    Yes, I have. :D A lot of them actually. While William Petersen is lovely and all that, the price goes to Sir Anthony Hopkins. The man can play creepy and still be HOT! Same goes to Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort...*dies*) and a lot of other men out there, but Anthony Hopkins makes me swoon. I am also a sucker for Keith Allen and Alan Rickman for both making the most creepy and loveable Sheriffs of Nottingham. And Richard Armitage for Guy of Gisbourne and Harrison Ford (for looking outrageously good at 60-ish. He looks the same as ever!) for Han Solo and Indiana Jones. Also, House Laurie wins the special award.:lol: And Christopher Lee, because no one is cooler than Christopher Lee.

    I do not have a favourite female actress right now, but I do like Jorja Fox, Anjali Jay, Miranda Otto and Jodie Foster. I also have a major thing for Helena Bonham-Carter and have find myself crushing on Natalie Portman and Natalia Tena. For older actresses it is Carrie Fisher and Rosalind Russell.

    7. Who is your favourite author?
    Could see that one coming...*headdesk* I do not have an outspoken favourite author, because I believe that all authors are different and writes differently. Compare Henry David Throeau with JK Rowling for example. Different speech, different genre etc. I can't compare those two.

    But I love the Lord of the Rings-books by J.R.R Tolkien and I actually love most fantasy or science fiction books. Take a look at my bookcase and tell me how many Star Wars books you've found. I love the Thrawn Triology written by Timothy Zahn, because it had my faith restored after the ending of Star Wars episode 6.

    I love Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and various female writers during the 19th Century.

    My favourite Swedish authors include Astrid Lindgren (I grew up with that woman, litterary) and Selma Lagerlöf (Who I am related to :p).

    8. What is your favourite book?
    Alas, a lot of books, different genre. Among my favourite books are; The Harry Potter-series (though they are not that great to be honest, in my opinion.), The Thrawn Triology, The X-wing series (YES! I am a science fiction-geek:D), Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, North and South, The Lord of the Rings etc.
