Well, as a guy, I do love me some good old action movies with stuff blowin' up. But as a story teller myself, I do tend to be drawn quite heavily to the speculative fiction stories (SciFi and Fantasy). They're great ways to tell a "what if...?" type story and you can let your imagination run free. They also allow you to put out a message you feel is important in such a way that it doesn't feel ham-fisted. Star Trek did that all the time. In the 60's, they were able to get away with shows that dealt with racism, war and equality by saying, hey, it's 300 years in the future and on another planet, and the censors let it slip through. Speculative fiction allows us to take a step away from the world we know in order to see it from a different perspective, and as a storyteller, that's very appealing.
