New Amsterdam

I could be in trouble. I might be adding a new television program to my line-up. New Amsterdam hasn’t aired yet, but I’m already a little enamored with the chiseled jawed leading man. The premise is tailor made for a hopeless romantic wrapped in a tight cynical shell—he is immortal until he finds “the one” and then he’ll be able to grow old with her.

Yep, just like that I’m in at least for the premiere. That’s all it takes.

Of course, if this were my reality, I’d meet “the one”, my immortality curse would be lifted and then I’d be hit by a truck. OR, I’d meet “the one”, my immortality curse would be lifted, I’d age while my “one” started dating a 22 year old. So, as with most things, this plot point works best in fiction.

Kate, watching American Idol and thinking that some of the cuts were kind of abrupt tonight

    I am so excited for this show to come on that I’ve already added it to my Season Pass Manager on the TiVo!!! I have SUCH a good feeling (hmmmm….hee!)about this one!

    I think I may have to pass on this one. I’m clearly way too vulnerable to serious crushing on romantic leads these days. I feel I may have dodged a bullet since it looks like Moonlight probably does have a future. I can’t take the chance of being sucked in, falling hopelessly in love with this guy and then having the show abruptly canceled. Much too traumatizing.
