Downton Abbey

A chronicle of the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era—with great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy.

The TV show that’s my guiltiest pleasure Downton Abbey. It’s basically a soap opera set in the early 1900s, but the actors are incredible and it’s so well done.

Suits

While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter.

The TV show I think doesn’t get its due Blackish followed closely by Doc Martin followed closely by Suits. These are all very different shows, but I don’t think they’ve gotten the following and professional recognition they deserve. Great writing and acting is rare. Let’s celebrate it when it comes together.

Modern Family

The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family. They give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.

The actor I’d want to play me in a movie If Brad Pitt’s not available, then Matt Damon can step up. If he’s not up to it, Ty Burrell who plays Phil Dunphy on Modern Family, will work just fine. Like Phil, I’m a goofball with a big heart.

Philadelphia Freedom

The song people might be surprised I know all the words to Philadelphia Freedom. But only because I had to lip synch it for a New Year’s Party while dressed as Elton John complete with glasses, rings and a gold lamé jacket with dollar signs. Everybody said it was the money song of the night. But then again they were all drunk.

The first album I bought with my own money Three Dog Night’s It Ain’t Easy. I last saw this album in my parent’s attic thirty years ago. I think by now it’s either been sold on eBay a hundred times or is in a landfill in Richmond, Virginia.

The last album I listened to Adele’s 25. This woman is amazing. I saw her do Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and fell in love with her humor. And of course that voice. A truly one-of-a-kind talent.

Paradise By the Dashboard Light

The song that always makes me feel better Meat Loaf’s Paradise By the Dashboard Light. If that doesn’t sum up the perils of young love in one song I don’t know what does! I liked it so much I used it in a book once, King & Maxwell. I listened to the song while I was writing the scene.
