Leonard Nimoy Dies at 83

I was saddened to hear about Leonard Nimoy. He will be missed.

Leonard Nimoy, known best for his portrayal of Spock in the original Star Trek series, died this morning at his home in Bel Air, Los Angeles. He was 83. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, announced that his death came at the grip of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

I think it’s high time for a Star Trek rewatch. His memory amongst friends, family, and fans will undoubtedly live long and prosper.

Dragon Prince and Other Stuff

I am a little over half-way through Dragon Prince and enjoying it immensely.  The plot is engaging, the characters are great, and the imagery is excellent.  Ms. Rawn has a subtle way with description, and she makes use of hint and suggestion, allowing the reader to use their imagination.  Some of the themes are “mature” but she doesn’t get raunchy or graphic.  For example, if her characters swear, she has them mutter an oath under their breath rather than say the actual words, and the action scenes aren’t overly violent.  I hope to be finished with it this next week.

I’ve been watching Adam-12 on Netflix.  It was one of my favorite shows as a kid, and I’m glad for a chance to reacquaint myself with it.

I’ve been watching The Closer on Amazon Prime…The acting is great and the cast has a good chemistry.

I’ve been watching Highlander on Hulu–Another older show I used to watch that I’m revisiting.

I watched the first couple of episodes of Gotham on Hulu, and it’s an interesting take on pre-Batman Gotham City.  The acting is great.  I especially like Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith).  I’m going to have to catch up with it later though, I do have enough to watch and keep me occupied.

I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving, I do have a lot to be thankful for.

 

NCIS: New Orleans and Once Upon a Time

I am delighted that Scott Bakula is on TV every week again…It’s been too long.  I’m enjoying NCIS:  New Orleans. The characters have a good chemistry, and I love that they have had Scott play piano a couple of times.

I am also very happy another season of Once Upon a Time has started.  I am liking the Frozen story line.  I think it’s imaginative and fits with the overall story.
