I'm tentatively looking forward to the new one. I loved the first and enjoyed the next several, but FC was just so dang long and frankly, it dragged. I'm hoping she can revive things with this next one.
But how can she possibly make it fresh? How many new ways can she describe Claire and Jamie having hot, married sex al fresco? I realize that the Brianna/Roger thing was brought in so there would be a new couple to take our interest, but they just weren't that interesting to me. I do like the way Claire deals with medical situations, though, and I'm hoping that there will be more good scenes of that. (No more Jamie in peril, please!).
And it would be nice to see a gay person that doesn't have to be all lovelorn (Lord John) or isn't a sick perv (Randall). You know who I really want to see more of? That little toady herbalist dude from Paris. Maitre Raymond. Now he's a character.
