What I'm crushing on right now...

HBO series The Wire. I'm late to the series (as in, it's over), and I'm only on Season 2, but man, what a great show. And I have blogger jkg to thank for the tip. He noted on his blog how good the show was, and I filed that away in my little mind. jkg has great taste - although I will never be converted to watch Lost.


I'm completely in love with the portrayal of the two lgbt characters on The Wire:the sexy as hell drug-dealing Omar, and the other equally hot Detective Greggs. Opposite sides of the law, but either one could make their way into my bed any freaking day.

Apart from my humping the table legs and licking the tv screen when either of these characters is on [not to mention Greggs' hot as hades girlfriend], The Wire is a fantastic drama. I'm glad I'm watching it on DVD as I have had to fast forward through two scenes so far: one made me cry, and the other made me almost vomit at the violence [but in general there isn't much graphic violence shown].

Please, if you haven't already seen it, get The Wire and join me in my newest love.

We recently finished The Wire. Which scene was too sad, and which one was too violent? We loved The Wire.

Every time I get hooked into one of these new shows, I end up having to buy the DVD's. I can't afford anymore new addictions!

I have all the seasons of Wonder Woman to still get through! No wonder I'm gaining weight, I feel like I'm parked in front of the tv! LOL!

I might just have to check it out...

Speaking of crushes... I was recently teased on another blog for admitting an attraction to Marcia Cross on Desperate Housewives. Those long flowing red tresses of hair... aye carramba!

CD: The throat slitting scene early in the second season made me grab the remote.

Eros: True that.

jkg: I all it all to you darlin'. And noooooo - I won't be able to take it.

Dantallion: I'm big on renting. I can't stand storing one more damn thing.

Rox: My fat lazy ass lives in front of the tv, but with Wii, at least I'm getting some exercise now

Perplexio; That's a good crush. Besides, she was the sexy psycho Kimberly on Melrose Place too - what's not to love?

I recently picked this up (the entire series for like $80) and plan on watching it soon.

Well, as soon as I finish up the complete series of Homicide.

Ironically, both were filmed right up the street from me.

(By right up the street, I mean about 1/2 hour away.)
