First off, the very happiest of birthday wishes to the always lovely and wonderfully talented [livejournal.com profile] kassrachel! May the celebration of your day be as fabulous as you are.

I've been watching New Amsterdam. and am liking it well enough. The premise is fairly interesting, though a bit Highlander meets Nick Knight, but no matter. The leads, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Zukeikha Robinson are both lovely and I enjoy them both immensely. I'm liking some of the plot twists, but am not quite as sold on the so-called "the one". Don't really see the chemistry between them. Love Omar, though.

John Adams has been quite interesting - caught up on the first two episodes via On Demand. I didn't think Paul Giamatti had it in him, but I was quite pleasantly proven wrong. He, and the other cast members, are doing a bang up job. (Thanks to the show, I've got a new icon, too. ::trots it out::)

I'm so glad it's Friday! The week went by too fast, mostly because there's been a great deal of work and stuff going on. I'm banging out the last bits of Blood Bargain and hope to have the final into Mme Editrix's hands in the next week and a half. WHEW!

Today's Tor freebie is one of my favorite's - Tobias Buckell's Crystal Rain. I first heard of this book some time ago and then, when visiting San Diego for ConDor, was convinced to buy the hardcover by my favorite book pusher, Mysterious Galaxy's Patrick Heffernan. He said I'd love it and he was absolutely spot on. If you haven't signed up at Tor, it's not too late. (The freebies are in PDF format, and easily viewable in an eReader).

Hope everyone has an amazing Friday!

I watched New Amsterdam with great interest for episodes 1 and 2. It's beginning to pall. I guess it is, in fact "the one" aspect that bothers me. I'd rather he weren't immortal, just, perhaps, reincarnated again and again. That would be cool.

Yeah, the whole "one" thing is quite meh for me. I do like your idea of constant reincarnation, along with getting back all of his memory. That would definitely have been cool!
