Movie – I would say “Goodfellas” because its a classic! For my TV show – I enjoy “King of Queens” and any shows that have to do with survival.

Definitely would have to be New York style pizza, specifically “Tommy’s”, which is located in the Bronx. I would also add some Ben & Jerry’s ice cream on the side.
