Amy Reads the Week (of March 9th, 2008)

I have been Struck Down, Gentle Reader, by the Nastiest of All Plagues. What began as Not-A-'Flu has malingered and turned into a vicious sinus infection. I have missed opportunities to hang with friends and enjoy, really, the first part of our Spring Break.

I have, however, had Some Opportunity to Read Comics and Watch Television. On the Comic Book Front, I am ever-amazed at Buffy Season 8 which proved to be Quite Interesting this month! The buzz around this issue speaks for itself, I believe.

In non-comics news, The Reads Family adores, absolutely adores New Amsterdam. It is smart, dark, interesting, and decidedly *not* an Angel ripoff. Unfortunately, these things also could mean it will have a short-lived career and a healthy cult following. Instead, let us triumph and Watch The Show! I want to see this show succeed!

Also, a sad good-bye to The Batman cartoon which began to get Very Good Indeed, as evidenced by the series finale, Lost Heroes.

Back to my post on the Reads Couch, where I will continue consuming such wonderful things like South Park, Invader Zim, and Torchwood in my effort to defeat illness through laughter. Or rest.

I'm sorry that you seem to be in the grip of the grippe. Nasty, isn't it? I've had this dratted stuff for about two weeks now, and my sinuses are STILL clogged.

Glad to see that you are taking the time to expand your horizons. New Amsterdam is actually pretty good, and the lead character is rather easy on the eyes as well.

Hope you feel better soon!

Hi Sally,

Thanks for the well wishes, Friend, and so sorry to hear that the Plague has visited Your House as well! I send you well wishes back, and urge you to Contact Your Physician, as sometimes--just sometimes!--they come through with antibiotics.

Indeed and how!
*ahem*
That is to say, This Humble Author finds the lead character in New Amsterdam to be not lacking in any way, acting, appearance, or otherwise.
(and how!)
The show itself is just *good*. And a surprise "cameo" by Papa Walt? Sheer genius!

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks, Friend, and you! As mentioned above, the Reads Family Physician has Come Through with antibiotics, which has helped A Great Deal.
Ciao,
Amy
