Rats again! Will they ever leave?  Yes they will, eventually.

And on a subject which has nothing to do with rats, Outlander, anyone? Ronald Moore won me over with Star Trek Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica (some say GINO but I say TNG.)  Outlander, I’m not so sure what to make of.  I recognize that it’s good from a production level, but story wise, I’ve got a terrible filter.  I thought Smallville was good for nine years, and I can’t think of a single movie I’ve seen in theatres where I didn’t leave saying; “That was awesome!” even if I came to regret the money spent later.

I want to like it, and I’m sure if I committed wholeheartedly and watched it, I’d be hooked, but should I want to like it?  That’s my question.  I suppose I’d need to read the book at some point, but I played that reverse spoiler game with Game of Thrones, and maybe this time I let the show spoil the book.
