Favourite Movies and TV-Shows

For Harry, political satire is one of the best subgenres of movie and TV but only when done right – thumbs up for Dr. Strangelove and Veep. There’s no stopping the yearly rewatch of all Star Wars movies, though not all of the television shows make the cut. Aside from those, you can’t go wrong with a classic heist movie - Ocean’s Eleven and Inside Man always hit the spot. For TV shows nothing has been the same since Severance and Boardwalk Empire is an all-time favorite.
