    What do you get from watching movies/TV?

    When I am watching, I am often placing myself in the shoes of the various characters and trying to determine what I would hypothetically do. What are the wise and unwise decisions?

    Do you have any very religious figures that you admire?

    Currently I am in the midst of rewatching a favorite TV series, Smallville. It is about Clark Kent growing up, prior to becoming Superman. In one of the episodes I just watched, it was surprising to hear the name “Trump” mentioned a few times. It has me wondering what other places in...
