I watched all of the movies and TV shows listed below. I love most of them. Their content is often far fetched and absurd when it comes to portraying the realities around programming. Nevertheless I recommend watching them as they are enjoyable.

Tron (1982)

A computer hacker is abducted into the digital world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program.

WarGames (1983)

A young man finds a back door into a military central computer in which reality is confused with game-playing, possibly starting World War III.

Hackers (1995)

Hackers are blamed for making a virus that will capsize five oil tankers.

Office Space (1999)

Three company workers who hate their jobs decide to rebel against their greedy boss.

Antitrust (2001)

A computer programmer's dream job at a hot Portland-based firm turns nightmarish when he discovers his boss has a secret and ruthless means of dispatching anti-trust problems.

The IT Crowd (2006-2013)

The comedic misadventures of Roy, Moss and their grifting supervisor Jen, a rag-tag team of IT support workers at a large corporation headed by a hotheaded yuppie.

Person of Interest (2011-2016)

An ex-CIA agent and a wealthy programmer save lives via a surveillance AI that sends them the identities of civilians involved in impending crimes. However, the details of the crimes, including the civilians' roles, are left a mystery.
