Superstitions and Conspiracies – Rubicon

I have never been a believer in too many superstitions. Although you will never see me step under a ladder, open an umbrella inside my house, and if I spill salt you will see me throw salt over my shoulder. I think a lot of the superstitions are fake. Your destiny and your life are planned only by you.

When I was little I used o get scared of going downstairs to where the microwave was and I’d beg my sister to go with me, and visa versa. We were both scared of being downstairs in the dark for what ever reasons and had to have each other go even step half way down the stairs, we’d also run up the stairs as fast as we could and wouldn’t turn off the lights until we were both safely up stairs….. strange I know, but as a kid were frightened.

In the first episode of  AMC’s Rubicon, we are introduced to the superstitions and quirky habits of some of the show’s main characters.  For example, David, Will’s mentor at the American Policy Institute, avoids the number 13 like the plague and spits on a broom that brushes up against his foot.  David’s superstitions are so ingrained in his behavior that they become part of his identity in the eyes of his colleagues, particularly Will.

I find it interesting that David avoided the number 13 and that was my favorite number. Rubicon is quite interesting and I really am looking forward to watching the series. The show follows an agency whose sole purpose is to break patterns and codes that ultimately lead to discovering conspiracies.

AMC’s newest original drama series “Rubicon” debuts on Sunday, August 1 with a special two-hour premiere from 8–10pm ET.

  1. This looks like an interesting show. When ever I cross a black cat’s path like driving down the road and one crosses the street I always stop my car get out and know three times on a tree trunk or piece of wood LOL

  2. I don’t believe in any conspiracies at all; I’m always a bit surprised when people do. And I love all cats, even black ones; I think it is so sad that they have a hard time getting adopted at shelters.
