3/20/2007 - Trendy Tuesday TV Husband Challenge
The women over at A Fancy Word for Simple asked us to consider which man we'd pick from a television series to be our husband.
I'm not very good at this "imagine if..." type of game. I'm very imaginative, but it's hard for me to actually go along with the limitless fantasizing that most people seem to do so very well. So, it took me the better part of a day to come up with an answer, but I was able to pick two:
(1) Jarod from The Pretender, played by Michael T. Weiss
(2) Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly, played by Nathan Fillion
At first glance, these two characters seem to have very little in common (aside from being enjoyable to look at). One is on the run from a force of evil ... okay, wait, BOTH of them are on the run from Bad People. One of them is unlucky in love. Hm. Okay, well, technically both of them are. One of them secretly rights wrongs -- uh, yeah, both of them are pretty focused on the doing what's right in the long run. Okay, so I guess I'm into a righteous, lonelyhearted man who's on the run. I think it speaks to my desire to join in the fight for what's right, to soothe troubled hearts, and to engage in the excitement of the chase, the cheap thrills of outwitting the Bad Guy. So, if I'm ever imported into TV land, I hope I wind up with one of those roles. I think it'd be tremendously fun. *grin*
