Not all of us are romance novel aficionados, I want vampires or robots/androids. Spaceships are nice, too! Fiery explosions!!!

Yup, not into romance novels either. Prefer murder, terror, psychopaths, and comedy. And "Survivor" and "Amazing Race".

I also enjoyed "How to Get Away With Murder" last night, and "Scorpion" tonight.

I love blood and guts medical stuff. Give me a show where they lift up all the intestines and put them on their chest to be able to get at what is underneath. I love watching the scalpel make that first cut. Then remove some tissue. Blood and guts. That is so great!

lol.

but it is pretty cool, and well done. along the production quality of "game of thrones".
Are you kidding me?
I'm so there,
BUT!
Here's the thing...
I have read and re-read each of Diana Gabaldon's eight,
yes 8 "big" novels (she has more, I got to meet her a few years back)
and I have Jamie and Claire Fraser in my head
and I just CAN'T do it!
I REFUSE
to watch them on TV,
just like I have Jean Auel's Earth Children
Ayla and Jondalar kept away in the recesses of my mind,
I don't want to meet them in person,
I like them on the page in front of me

Meanwhile, I watched the first episode of the latest season of Downton Abby last Sunday. However, I won't say anything about it, as I know there are a few fans here who may not have seen it yet.
Now "Downton Abbey" is back I may have to get the aerial repaired and buy a television licence again. Not sure if it'll be very good on-line.

Liked the Scorpion. Of course when plain is this cole to the ground, why not simply land, but oh well, then they could not make the show, right? ;)
