Don Eppes Is My TV Boyfriend
I'd like to thank Carlie, the matchmaker between me & my new TV boyfriend.
This is how we met:
Carlie likes the TV show Numb3rs, with Don Eppes (FBI guy) and his math whiz brother, Charlie*. Now, Melissa and Carlie had tried to introduce me to this show before, during the infamous Flavor Flav weekend, I believe. But, it didn't take.
I was visiting Carlie a few weekends ago and we were watching Supernatural (pretty, pretty boys.) And Carlie then did the best Readers Advisory for TV ever. Picking up on a significant reason why I adore the show, she said, "You know, this show is just like Numb3rs."
"How so," I asked, wondering what a show about demons had in common with a show about crimes.
"Supernatural: two brothers and a Chevy Impala. Numb3rs: two brothers and a Craftsman house."
Casting it in the light of family drama and brotherly angst, I had to watch. How obsessed am I?
I chose to watch the Season 2 DVD rather than watch original shows this past month.
I am now slightly obsessed with the show, and Don Eppes. (Let's be clear: I'm not some crazy stalker girl who has confused Rob Morrow with the character he plays. And I know Don is not real.) Why I like the character: well, have you seen him? Adorable. But also? There is all the family drama and emotions; the two brothers who trying to reconnect, the father, the family dynamics. Sigh. Forget the crime solving, I like the conversation over dinner. And they bicker, just like Sam and Dean! Seriously, Alan Eppes is just like John Winchester; except nicer and not so psycho. And I don't think the Winchesters are Jewish.
Past TV boyfriends have included Brian Ash, Joe Dubois is my TV husband, and book boyfriend: Gen, of course, as well as Michael Jennings (and half of EEW's main characters). I think Will was one of my first book boyfriends.
So, confess. Don't leave me here on my own. Who is your TV/book/movie boyfriend or girlfriend?.
*edited to add: holy hannah, what a difference a hair cut makes.
