* ''Fanfic/{{Remnants}}'': After Zek steals some of [[VideoGame/MassEffect Joker's entertainment]], his crew of Kig-Yar fall in love with human entertainment. In particular they find the cast of Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean, Film/{{Gremlins}} and Film/{{Jaws}} quite relatable. They absolutely ''abhor'' the works of William Shakespeare though.

** Considering the culinary arts, it's shown that most species (who have an identifiable digestive tract) have their own unique range of tastes, but mostly can ingest the same things as other species. In fact, there's certain foods that 'all' cultures seem to agree upon. Specifically, every single known race makes Swedish Meatballs. While homeworld ingredients and names vary wildly, the taste and texture between them all are virtually indistinguishable, the dishes are interchangeable, whether it's Narn Breen or Centauri Roopo balls. There is no explanation; G'Kar comments that if anyone were to determine the reason, they would [[GoMadFromTheRevelation surely go mad]].

*** Also played with in the episode ''The Wire''. Garak gives Dr. Bashir a Cardassian novel to read and Bashir thinks it's terrible (and from the description we get of it he's right). Meanwhile Garak reads Julius Caesar and is thoroughly unimpressed, commenting that Caesar should have known Brutus was going to betray him from the first act.

Meanwhile Garak reads Julius Caesar and is thoroughly unimpressed, commenting that Caesar should have known Brutus was going to betray him from the first act. This leads to Garak failing to explain the point of the "repetitive epic", and Bashir failing to explain the concept of "tragedy".

--->'''Londo''': Earth is situated in a fairly uninteresting part of the galaxy. We'd never bothered much with that area before. It had little strategic or military value. Still, as a culture grows decadent, it becomes more intrigued by art, by trinkets... by eccentricity. And the humans had art, and trinkets, and eccentricity to spare.

** Ravage the Predicon is described as being hugely addicted to mindless TV shows; they're the only thing that can distract him from going on a berserk rampage against everything in sight.

* In Creator/JohnScalzi's ''Literature/AgentToTheStars'', the [[BlobMonster Yherajk]] are ''huge'' fans of Earth's TV ever since they [[AliensStealCable first received our broadcasts]] (humans being the only aliens they've encountered thus far). They spent decades on their STL ship watching newer and newer shows (as they got closer). Of course, it took them some time to figure out a large chunk of them were fictional. They even thought that reruns were ritualized reenactments of some momentous events. On the flipside, their "tivis" are artworks made with sophisticated smells (the Yherajk mainly communicate [[StarfishLanguage by producing scents]], although some have learned to turn themselves into jelly-like speakers to generate audible speech for our sake). When they take a human to their "tivis" gallery, they are pleasantly surprised that humans are not only able to perceive but also like the smells. In fact, despite our vastly different biochemistry, "tivis" produce nearly the same emotions in humans as they do in the Yherajk.

** He also likes their jelly babies and edible ball bearings, but that could just be the GeniusSweetTooth talking. In the case of the latter, he's amazed that humanity are the ''only'' race in the entire galaxy to come up with such a thing!

** Human art, however, is widely appreciated, with alien characters quoting Franchise/StarTrek, collecting a garden of Earth plants, and even playing DungeonsAndDragons.

* In ''Literature/AlienInASmallTown,'' it turns out that the one thing that almost all alien races (at least the ones with a sense of hearing) agree that humans are genuinely good at is making ''music.''

* In Arthur C. Clarke's short story "History Lesson", long after the death of humanity, Venusians are baffled and fascinated by the sole relic depicting Earth's civilization, an ancient movie. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:it's an animated cartoon, "A Walt Disney Production".]]
