I had a friend trying to get me hooked for a couple of years and I resisted till this fall. Now I am hooked, sitting here with my candle, spoon, and needle. I missed out on being an OJ, but I am still a junkie. I love everything I've heard so far and can't wait for more. I hate football, but couldn't get enough of The Rookie, wating on The Starter. First episode of Contagious got me wanting more triangles. Nocturnal is AWSOME!
Also, you'd asked about doing a toned down version of The Rookie at the request of educators. If it helps literacy I say go for it! Also, since we junkies don't like to suffer alone, take the stance of a true crack dealer and 'hook them young'.
Thank you for the entertainment of your words.
