I completely missed this last week so I have to come up with something special this week.
After a long hard think about it, I’ve decided to gush over hotties past.
This week it will be TV shows that have bitten the dust and are sorely missed and then next week I may go into golden era movie stars.
So, who’s first this week?
OK, who could forget E.R.? It ran for 15 years! It brought us the scrumminess that is George Clooney.
Ah yes, we miss E.R
So who’s next?
Back in 2006 we were introduced to Kyle. A young boy who wakes up in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no memories and in the opening scene he has absolutely no clothes and we later find out he has no belly button!
What he does have is super intelligence and abilities so it doesn’t take him long to impact on the family that adopts him.
17 year old Kyle was played by the ‘butter would melt in his mouth’ 24 year old Matt Dallas.
Next is Dominic Purcell who is best known for his recent portrayal of Lincoln Burrows in Prison Break but he is here now because of a show called ‘John Doe’
The show was about a man who knows ‘everything’ except his own name and who he is and where he came from.
Ask him anything, he can tell you the answer. The only clue he has is a tattoo of a symbol. He stumbles into helping the police on various cases while trying to figure out his own past.
The show was amazing but sadly didn’t get past it’s first season and left us on one hell of a cliffhanger!
Next is ‘The Pretender’ Otherwise known as Michael T Weiss.
This was a show about a mega intelligent boy who was taken away from his family at the age of 6 and institutionalised for 30 years. His ability to become whatever he wants was used help ‘The Centre’ do some pretty nasty things. Then as the beginning of the show states ‘Their Pretender ran away’
The show follows Jarod as he tries to evade capture while helping the innocent get justice. He becomes a different person for every episode. From surgeons to pilots and firefighters.
Next is Jake…. Jake 2.0
Yes I was trying to do the Bond thing!
This show is about Jake Foley who is a computer technician for the NSA who secretly longs for a chance to work in the field. Circumstance puts him in a top secret laboratory, in the middle of a shootout between security guards and a saboteur. During the battle, a vial containing an experimental serum explodes, covering Jake with shrapnel. But it turns out that the serum is actually nanomites, microscopic submachines that heal his injuries and alter his body. Upon discovering his new mind-boggling powers, Jake begins to operate at an atomic level, possessing superhuman strength, lightning-fast speed, heightened hearing, magnified vision and the ability to communicate telepathically with computers. The NSA soon realizes Jake is an untested asset and forms a Special Ops team with him at its core.
Jake was played by Christopher Gorham who is probably best know for his recent appearance in Ugly Betty. He was perfect for Jake with quite an awqward geeky kind of look that is actually quite endearing and underneath that shirt it turns out he’s actually quite well built too!
OK, this is getting quite difficult so this next one will have to be the last one.
Back in 1999 a show that rivaled E.R. popped onto out screens called ‘Third Watch’
The show was about the exploits of a group of men and women who served the City of New York as police officers, firemen, and paramedics in the fictional 55th Precinct.
It was fast paced and exciting and ran for 6 years. Amongst the many faces that came a went throughout the show, one face was a constant. A firefighter played by Eddie Cibrian.
He was lovely. He’s kept himself busy since the show ended. He landed another fantastic series called ‘Invasion’ that as with John doe didn’t make it past it’s first series and left us with an incredible cliffhanger. He is currently to be seen as ‘Jesse Cardoza’ in CSI Miami. When he smiles he has incredible dimples! Let’s not forget that he is also incredibly well built.
OK, that’s enough gushing for this week.
Next week I’ll be dipping into the Golden era of movies. Not quite so many shirtless and half naked men but never the less some extremely handsome ones.
