Bill Gates revealed his eclectic TV tastes on Monday, and they run a little more violent than those of the rest of his family.

The business mogul, philanthropist, and Microsoft founder took part in a Reddit ask-me-anything (AMA) session on Monday, and commented on his favourite TV shows. Gates said that he watches HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and ABC’s “A Million Little Things” with his wife, Melinda.

He said he watches FX’s “The Americans,” which wrapped up with its sixth and final season last year, with his son because it’s “too violent” for Melinda, and he watches Netflix’s “Narcos” by himself.

He added Showtime’s “Billions,” Fox’s “Lie to Me” (which is streaming on Hulu), NBC’s “Friday Night Lights,” and Netflix’s “American Vandal” and “Black Mirror” as more of his favourites.

He seems to enjoy satires about technology, as he listed both “Silicon Valley” and “Black Mirror.”

“There are so many good shows,” Gates said. “People tell me about them but I can’t watch them all!”
