Mr Holmes

…of the Decade

January 6, 2010

Probably to be added to at a later date but I reckon these are my favourite X from 2000-2009.

Films:

  • Memento
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou?
  • Spirited Away
  • Shaun Of The Dead

TV:

  • The Wire
  • The West Wing (it started ’99 but was mainly in the noughties)
  • Arrested Development
  • Spaced (again, started ’99 but series 2 was ’01 and it was definitely more of a Uni thing for me than it was 6th form)

Books:

  • Baudolino, Umberto Eco
  • American Gods, Neil Gaiman
