• My New Boyfriends*

    I am seriously so full of glee right now.

    I mean, I love finding a new movie or TV show that I enjoy, but it’s rare for me to find one that I love. In the history of my TV career I have watched many, many different shows, and I can count the ones I really love on one hand:

    1) Frasier
    2) Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
    3) Alias

    and now…

    4) Glee

    Words cannot express how much I am loving this show. Like, the seven days between episodes is WAY too long. If you aren’t watching it yet, start now. RIGHT now. Here are two very good reasons why:

    Meet Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith — a Canadian!!) and Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), my new TV boyfriends. My list of TV boyfriends began many moons ago with my love for Seth Cohen and Derek Shepherd… but over time my love has waned and I’ve found myself TV boyfriend-less for a long time. There were men I admired, but none that took that special place in my heart… until now. Oh Glee–how did you know that I LOVE TV men that can sing?! *swoon*

    Finn is probably my favourite character on the show because I freaking love his voice, his desire to find out who he is and his courage to try new things. He is the boy I think we all wanted to find in high school–come on now, a singing football star with a heart? If I was still 16 his face would be all over my walls right now (sorry JTT, but you’ll always have a special place in my heart!) At first I felt like a total cradle robber as I swooned over a TV high school boy, but thank goodness for Google–in real life he is actually 27. Haha!

    And then there is Mr. Shuester… I don’t think he does nearly enough singing in the show, but I’m hoping that will change as the show progresses. I love how much he cares about his students and loves his job… that’s the kind of teacher that I want to be.

    I just… love. There are no words. It’s the club I wished for in high school (I played all the sports, but there wasn’t nearly enough music for me. *sigh*) and I love the music! I think it’s fabulous that they are integrating music into the TV show–it’s sort of like a mini-musical and as one who has always loved musicals, I hope it will do wonders to help a new generation appreciate this type of music. It’s fun, it makes fun (it’s often satirical), and it’s downright hilarious. I can’t help but be excited as I watch the show as it’s absolutely infectious.

    On a more teacherish note, I think it’s wonderful that the show is breaking apart stereotypes that we’ve seen in schools for ages. It’s teaching its viewers about finding self-confidence, not being afraid to try something new, and believing in and finding yourself–a lesson so many kids (and adults) need to begin learning. It’s full of all kinds of other crap too, but I love the underlying messages in each episode (except for the scary cheer leading coach. She’s a whole lot of crazy).

    Anyway, I was just watching clips from the show online and got so excited I just had to tell you. If you’re still on the fence about the show, take a second and watch the following clips. If you’re not in love with it after watching… well, I’ll be Gleeful for you. ;)

  • New Boyfriends*

    Well, I just had a really crappy night in class (made bearable only by the presence of Twin and [Vibes] *and I will never explain why she gets that nickname… haha). So, I thought I’d do something that would make me feel better and update my TV boyfriend list! Over the past few months my affections have changed and I am no longer in love with Jack Bauer, Uncle Cooper or Gil Grissom so I feel as though it’s time to break up. Also, the O.C. has ended which means that there can be no more love between Seth Cohen and I. Sadly, that leaves only McDreamy, Lincoln and Jim–and what kind of a woman would I be if I only had 3 TV boyfriends??? So. I expanded my horizons and have found NEW loves!! They are:

    Ant & Dec
    (Anthony McPartlin & Declan Donnelly)
    These are my British loves. I fell absolutely in love with them while watching Britain’s Got Talent this year… which is SO much better than the American version, just so you know. They are charming, witty, hilarious AND ridiculous, which is pretty much everything I look for in a TV man. I can’t love them separately though, only together.


    Michael Vaughn

    (Michael Vartan)

    This is Michael. He is the handsome hero on Alias. He fights bad guys and loves Sydney. Need I say more?

    That’s all for now… I’m still looking for more replacements. I’m actually really sad that I had to break up with Jack, but he cried too much this season. He was such a man before. *sigh*

  • Office Fan?

    I’ve recently become a rather large fan of the office, and feel it’s necessary to add Jim Halpert to my list of TV boyfriends. I heart Jim. I LOVE the ongoing feud between him and Dwight… it makes my heart glad. haha

    ANYWAY, if you are a fan of The Office, then you will LOVE this gem of a clip I found on the net of a future episode. It’s AMAZING.

    Go. Watch. Love.

  • My TV Boyfriends*

    So even though I am a very happily married woman, I think every girl should be allowed a few TV boyfriends. I was actually inspired from a friend’s blog and wanted to share my all my TV men with you. They are in no particular order, they are just wonderful wonderful characters on some of my favourite TV shows!! So without further ado, voila:

    Seth Cohen
    (Adam Brody)
    Why you should love him:
    I think it’s fairly impossible not to love Seth. He is funny, charming, geeky, clumsy and absolutely head over heels for Summer, which is all together toooo cute. He’s pretty much why I watch the O.C. haha

    Why you shouldn’t:
    There are absolutely no reasons why someone shouldn’t love Seth. He’s Seth Cohen!!!!


    Lincoln Burrows

    (Dominic Purcell)
    Why you should love him:
    If you are not currently watching Prison Break… shame on you!!! I LOVE this show, and as hard as it was to choose between Michael and Link, I had to make a choice. He’s so tough and he loves his brother and his kid.

    Why you shouldn’t:
    Well, there’s that whole fugitive thing, then the whole sketchy past thing… but, you can ignore those.

    Uncle Cooper
    (Michael Trucco)
    Why you should love him:
    I’ve recently become somewhat obsessed with One tree Hill. It’s a little high-school dramaish, but aside from that… IT’S AMAZING. And I LOVE Nathan’s race-car driving Uncle Cooper who makes guest appearances on the show from time to time. He’s HILARIOUS, dangerous, charming and… well, look at that smile. haha

    Why you shouldn’t:
    Well, he sometimes dates 17 year old girls and has a tendency to be either indirectly or directly involved with car crashes.

    Dr. Derek Shepherd [aka McDreamy]
    (Patrick Dempsey)
    Why you should love him:
    He’s MCDREAMY. Shouldn’t that be enough? I LOVE Grey’s Anatomy more than words can possibly express. Who wouldn’t love a charming young surgeon?

    Why you shouldn’t:
    Well, there was the whole married thing… and I’m still upset that he originally chose Addison over Meredith.

    Gus Grissom
    (William Petersen)
    Why You should love him:
    Oh Grissom. I got into CSI last year, and even though NY and Miami are okay, they aren’t the same as Las Vegas because there’s no Grissom! He’s brilliant, eccentric, quirky and charming.

    Why you shouldn’t:
    Well… he can be a little too involved with his work and seems to have some sort of fear of relationships.

    Well, these are the other men in my life!!! Haha… I probably sound like a lunatic, but there are some fantastic TV shows out there, and these are kinda why I like them… hahah. Oh, and by the way, I am calling DIBS on all of these men. Get your own. :)
