I prefer science fiction or a good space opera, but find that quality ones are few and far between nowadays - they all tend to be action films. Not that action films are bad, as long as they're billed that way. The Undiscovered Country is one of my favourite films, but you-know-who has made a mess of the Star Trek property.
I'm also a fan of political drama and political thrillers, though again... mostly older ones. I don't particular care for terrorist-of-the-week style plots. Hunt for Red October is still one of my all-time favourite films.
I watch police/criminal procedural TV shows, but mostly for the characters. The forensic science in
some most of them is laughable. Numb3rs was particularly bad, trying to apply some arcane calculation to every crime, but I loved the interaction between the two brothers and the father. I'm enjoying Blindspot, but I sincerely hope they don't screw up revealing how the whole thing started.
