1. What is your guilty pleasure television show? Why do you love it? If by “guilty pleasure” it is implied that I feel a bit naughty after I watch it then my answer has to be Archer on FX. It’s perhaps the smartest and filthiest cartoon in prime time. And the big plus is the nostalgia factor with visions of Bond, Matt Helm and our man Flint dancing in my head. Not to mention all the swingin’ chicks that were part of the package!
2. If you had to choose between a zombie apocalypse and an alien invasion, which would you choose and why? My answer is Zombies. My first reason is they are slow and stupid. Have you ever seen a fast Zombie…the answer is no. Hey, those creatures in”28 Days Later” don’t count, they were just poor, infected humans…NOT Zombies. Aliens on the other hand are totally unpredictable. I’m not comfortable with them. They might be friendly and speak English like on Star Trek or they might want to pop out of my chest and eat my face. I’m just not going there!
