    My guess is it could tell a little about personality and values, but also to take some pressure off both of ya as im sure most new grads are nervous as can be

    I, too, was asked this question during an interview! I didn't think much of it at the time; I had assumed the nice lady was just making small talk. It turns out that, like me, the interviewer is addicted to Dateline: Real Life Mysteries. We must have sat and talked about various episodes for at least half an hour. I felt very relaxed and comfortable and thought the rest of the interview went very well. I got the offer.

    I wouldn't answer "Hannibal" or "Dexter," if you get my drift.

    Would it be bad that I'd say Pretty Little Liars? Haha.
