Happy New Year! Needles to say I’ve been a slacker in the blogging arena as of late as well as the healthy cooking arena. But the good news is that I’ve been kicking ass in randomly finding new TV series to watch on Netflix. I know I’m not alone in my series watching addiction, because I’m often consulted by family and friends as to what to watch. It’s nice when you can color your downward spiral into procrastination with a bit of altruism.
There are so many great shows out there, but one of my favorites that hasn’t gotten the buzz it deserves is Continuum. Don’t dismiss this show if you’re not a sci-fi fan. I didn’t add the link up front because many of you will. I’m not a die-hard fan of the Sci-fi genre , but I am a sucker for time travel. Continuum features a female time-travelling cop, Kiera Cameron, from the not so distant future. I love the fact that some of the time travelers that Kiera is thrust through time with still have connections in the present which is basically our period. The flash backs are brief and cool and we get so much insight into Kiera. I love the fact that Kiera has a built-in video in-plant that allows her to view her recordings of her young son who she desperately wants to get back to in her own time. Rachel Nichols, the actress who plays Kiera, does an unbelievable job of playing a tough, strong heroine and a vulnerable mother who is separated from her child. I think this show appeals on so many levels.
So I just checked on Netflix to rewatch the first episode of Continuum (partly to complete my review and partly because I like it so much, it made me want to watch it again) and it’s now only available on DVD from Netflix. Bummer. But there will be a Season 3 in 2014 so it’s worth the effort to find Season 1 and 2.
Happy, Happy New Year. Thank you all for giving my books a chance and making this a great year for me. I’m a bit off schedule but I will have the next Pleasure book out next year and hopefully one or two more new releases. For those who are waiting for my next book, thank you so much. I wish I could come to all of your houses and make you dinner. I’m going to try to get better at writing and releasing on a more structured schedule. Uhm, another one of those resolutions or Needs Improvement areas. But not tonight. We’re staying in and having filet mignon and king crab legs for dinner. Cheers, all!
