I'm totally hooked on the new show, Men In Trees. I was never a big Anne Hesche fan, but I have to say I really like her in this show about a relationship coach that gets cheated on by her fiancé and retreats to small town Alaska.
But hey, it's me so let's face it, the real thing that got me hooked on the show was the character Jack, played by James Tupper. Holy hotness. And even better, I found out he's actually from Halifax originally. And all I can say is...where the heck was I when he was still in town?? He's great in the show and the more I watch the more I'm looking at that face and thinking, there's a character in there for me...so now my brain is churning figuring out who this character is, what's his background, his damage, his present, past, future, what he looks like naked...whoops...how did that slip in there?
I love when that happens. The character part, not the naked part. Well, okay that too, but for now let's concentrate on the character part. I love when you see a face and it just hits you that there's a story in that face for you. And I've come to realize, that's where a lot of my ideas come from. Faces. It all seems to start with the character for me and that character and the ideas that surround them come from the faces that catch my attention.
This would explain why I was generally a more visual learning in my school days...
Anyway, the show is awesome and they put it in a better time slot than where it originally was. So now it's on after Grey's Anatomy on Thursday on ABC. It means I have to watch ER when it's on earlier on another channel, but it's worth it. The show itself stands alone even without the hotness, but the hotness definitely helps. I've only seen four episodes so I'll catch up over the holidays when they replay the earlier ones.
All I can say is, if men like Jack really were in trees, I'd be reliving my childhood and climbing every branch I could get my hands on.
