TV men



Lately I have been thinking about the leading men in the TV shows that I like to watch. I mean, let's face it, I made a list of all the men on TV I sweat, and damnit, there's quite a few! I'm sure I even forgot some.

Some of them are bad asses, which I suppose is their appeal. Some of them are just too good, which would be a turnoff, if they weren't so damn adorable. Some don't even know they're hot. There's the one's who cheats, the guy that blows things up, tries to save the world and/or lives. Those that just want off of the island.

Without further ado (because I know you're dying to know my thoughts on this one) let's do a little rundown, shall we?

24- So Jack Bauer is obviously a badass. He means business and people shut the eff up when he tells them to. He's pretty good looking, right? And more so because of his authority, I think. All he has to do is say his name and the masses will listen. I'd date him. Date. Long term relationship potential isn't so good there. He's too high risk.
Milo just creeps me out. Morris is kind of attractive yet needs to tend to the button down shirt with no tee-shirt underneath situation he has going on. Cover up some, stud. You know this girl likes layering.

Lost- Oh I'm a Sawyer girl damn straight. You thought Jack? Nope, too stuck up lately. Sure Sawyer's killed a couple guys; he's a con artist, just killed Locke's daddy- I'm saying whatever to all of that. I'm down. He's hot and really, what girl wasn't turned on by that initial scene of him and Kate getting it on?
Jack's lost my interest. I liked him more as Charlie on Party of Five (you know you loved that show too). He's too cocky. In a way that turns me off. And I guess he's into Juliet. Whatever.
Jin seems kind of sweet though right? He's killed some people too. Little bit of a language barrier we'd have ourselves there. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing either. Hmm. Attractive, but probably not a good match.

The Hills- Oh yeah, I'm going there. Only to say that both leading guys suck. Spencer, well that speaks for itself. Complete ass. Not even attractive. Jason reminds me too much of a guy I once dated, and he keeps getting arrested. It would never work.

Grey's Anatomy- Really, I think they're all swell to look at. But beyond that? There's really nothing there I'd totally go for. George is growing on me, yet he's married (although that doesn't seem to have phased him in the past). Seems like a really good friend type.
Dreamy... eh, not sure. Good looking enough. Knows it though. And really, Meredith is so freaking whiny; if that's what he's into, then a good match he and I would NOT make. Burke is very attractive. A little into himself, but I think that may work for me. Alex, eh. Been there done that type of guy. All set.

Sex and the City- I know it's over, but come on, did you think I wouldn't go there?
Aidan well he's pretty much the package right there. I'm digging that shit. I like his job, his height, his hair. His wanting to wait to sleep with Carrie. How he's a homebody. His dog Pete. All good things. My top choice by far.
Berger. Funny, right? Totally dig that. Seems to have some ex issues. And the post it note breakup situation. Lord help him. I reward him no points, and may God have mercy on his soul. (big bonus points to a blogbuddy who can name that movie reference!)
Big. Attractive. Perpetually unavailable though, huh? Or available at the wrong time. Been here too. These relationships have that indescribable appeal to them. I don't know, not sure about this one, long term.
And sweet Steve. The underdog right? Very funny, silly. A little too silly, sometimes. But cute, and sweet. And just loves Miranda. To death. Which is really, very very endearing. I think he'd make a good husband. Not necessarily seeing it happening though for me. (I love how I'm acting as though I'm on the Bachelorette, choosing, like for real, marriage... with a tv character.)

And just for a back in the day reference, Felicity.
Because I loved Ben. Very attractive. Sweet. Really into her, big time. Rough around the edges and I like that. Good hair. Hot.

Lastly, a show I watched only an episode of because clearly I have enough shows to keep up with already....
October Road- I don't even know his name on the show, but know he's hot. Definition of a guy I'd be into. Totally. All I know is that he's good looking and dresses well. That's all I know and I'll go on that.

So there's my rundown of prime time tv's leading men that I'm into. Basically I'd like an Aidan, with a side of Ben and Sawyer, dressed like the guy whose name I don't know, with a Burger sense of humor, a Steve sweetness, a Jack Bauer assertiveness, and a George innocence/friend quotient. I don't think that's too much to ask for. This is my game after all.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sawyer.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Well now that that's out of my system, I must say you have a great list! And if you happen across someone who resembles... oh... any of them... see if they have a brother, kay?

Airam said...

I'm all about Aiden. I don't watch the other shows so I had to skip all the way down to Sex and the City (and was thrilled you included it btw).

When I was younger it was Dillon from 90210 ... I loved that he was such a bad ass.

Fast forward a few years and it's Chandler from Friends. My ideal man now would be a cross of Chandler and Aiden. Mmm, mmm good.

brookem said...

bre- wednesday is pretty much my favorite day from fall until now. for the sole reason of sawyer.

airam- you knew i'd include that one! :)

appletini said...

Wouldn't it be nice if we could cut bits and pieces from different men and put it all into one :)

But for now, Aiden is definitiely my pic, but a little of Mr. Big would be nice too :P

k.r.i.s.t.e.n. said...

haha, nice, i love berger, although the post-it note thing is not good. ben from felicity is totally hot. i also like jim from the office - i know you don't watch that show. and, the guy from october road - he was in one tree hill and in an hbo show, unscripted - his name is bryan greenwood and he has a couple songs on itunes that are good too. i know, a little weird of me to know all that info on him, but he is cute!

brandy said...

Ahh, I used to love Jack but this season he's just been annoying. But he's still cute. I do love George though, even though he's a cheater. He's just so... darn cute. As for Spencer... blech. Aidan was a little too good for me... Big was a little too.. about himself. Okay seriously. This is why I'm single.

brookem said...

appletini- yes, totally. an eclectic mix of all these men is what im sayin!

kristen- ha, totally NOT weird of you to know that. i just learned about his music too. i think it's greenberg though...

brandy- i agree; jack is still cute. single- you and me both honey.

Princess Extraordinaire said...

I will always love Jack Bauer...I hope 24 doesn't go off the air next year...

jeorg said...

mmmmm. mcdreamy. curls AND blue eyes. yum-mé!

i totally agree about aidan on s&c.

jack on lost is a big whiny baby. but sawyer still doesn't do it for me. i want to cut his hair a bit so he'll stop flipping it like a girl.

Beth said...

Totally agree. Except add Smith Jarod's abs!

Accidentally Me said...

That weeny from Felicity got SO MUCH hotter when he started hanging out with Kate Beckinsale and slaughtering vampires and werewolves in Underworld...

The Diva's Thoughts said...

I am so in love with Mr. McDreamy AND Dr. McSteamy. I so want them both.

brookem said...

princess- i think it has one or two seasons left. hopefully!

jeorg- i agree a bit about sawyer's hairdo. how about the time he had it styled "half up?" come on.

beth- that's RIGHT!

am- i've been a fan all along! doesn't matter what he's doing, he's hot.

the diva's thoughts- they sure aren't bad. at all.

jeorg said...

omg, i forgot about the ponytail he was sportin'. lol. that was bad. really bad.

undercover celebrity said...

ok, we just may be TV soul mates. But, our taste in men differs a wee bit. I am much more of a Jack from Lost and McDreamy kind of girl.

And... Ben! We do see eye-to-eye on that one. I ran into him in an airport a couple of years ago. And let me assure you he is just as hot in person. Lord, that image will not leave my mind anytime soon.

brookem said...

undercover celeb- don't get me wrong, i do indeed think mcdreamy is good looking! i just prefer rough around the edges sawyer to jack.

oh i'd die to meet ben! you lucky gal you!

ruby said...

Very very very good list! If you will excuse me I'm going to go daydream...

egan said...

I approve of all these men. I wouldn't kick them out no matter what.

Joy said...

Nice.

Michi said...

Aidan's my top pick, despite being a little too sensitive. But overall, he seems to be a my top pick of a package ;)

thethinker said...

I love the guy from October Road. He's so cute. Awhile ago, he was on One Tree Hill. I thought I'd never see him again after that.

(And I feel the same way about The Hills. Spencer is such a jerk. Jason is not that attractive. I don't get why LC dated him for so long.)

MrWriteNow said...

I'm losing interest in the whole TV crush thing...and not ONE mention of me.

In an effort to change the subject, you've been tagged.

"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Oh, that quote is SO from "Billy Madison"...and I don't even want to know how many times my brothers and I have recited that to each other, verbatim!

You are officially my blog soulmate...I love it! :)

Jenna_Russ said...

P.S. I want an Aidan, too...with Big's brooding good looks and Steve's ever-present good humor. :)

Tbone said...

I met Aiden (John Corbet) in Seattle a few years ago. My friend and I were looking for a great place to eat breakfast...not realizing who he was...I approached him and asked where good eats were...he put his hand on my shoulder and mentioned all these great places and then told us to enjoy our day...what a great guy and he is really really tall in person.

brookem said...

ruby- yeah, ive been daydreaming since i wrote the thing.

egan- thank you for your stamp of approval. i feel better knowing you agree.

joy- thanks. hope you're doing okay girl.

michi- damn straight. he's such a stud.

the thinker- nice to see you here again!

MWN- did i miss your debut into acting? and also, you link your blog as if i dont already have you under my daily visits? come on. you know better.

jenna- YES!!! you're the only one who even took a stab at it. thank you!

tbone- you lucky girl you! thanks for stopping by!

Numbers O'Houlihan said...

Thanks for the comment...you are officially my #1 reader!

onto the gents...you have good taste. Especially when it comes to Lost and Felicity. I fancy myself a Sawyer and Ben fan as well.

egan said...

There may or may not be sarcasm in your response, but I'm glad I can help Brooke.

angel, jr. said...

I got lost at The Hills. Really? The Hills?

brooke alexandra said...

Ahh, if only men like this actually existed, life would be good. But, instead we can continue to drool all over the TV each night, and have exciting, steamy sex dreams about them. I'll admit, I've had a dream or two starring Taye Diggs and Wentworth Miller...

brookem said...

numbers- see we have something in common already!

egan- for once, i was not being sarcastic! unbelievable.

angel- yeah, i watch it. and not ashamed of it one bit! :)

brookelyn- i forgot about wentworth! what a classy name too. what a freakin stud.

Clare said...

I'm definitely with you on Aidan from Sex and the City :).

MrWriteNow said...

Funny you mention that...you may not have missed my debut as an actor...you just don't know it was me. It was a long time ago, and I know how old you are.....

Trixie said...

I gotta go with SATC's Big's suaveness mixed in with Aidan's rugged, outdoorsy persona and Jack Bauer's strength & resolve. :)

Michi said...

P.S. mind if I add you to my fave reads list?

brookem said...

clare- we're meant to be friends then.

mwn- maybe i didnt miss it then...

trixie- i knew you'd say that! :)

michi- i'd love that! and when i get to updating mine, you'll be on there as well:)

egan said...

Cool. I see someone else also saw Aiden in Seattle.

Airam, Dillon was such a loser in the beginning though. You're talking about Dillon after he found out his dad wasn't dead right?

brookem said...

eg(h)an- you met aidan too?! come on.
and i agree, dylan became cooler over time. i cried forever when his wife died. that was the saddest scene ever.

B said...

I loved Ben and he's Canadian too:)

Desiree said...

Aiden - I want to marry him, but haven't met him.

Big - met him, dated him, he will always be Mr. Unavailable, Mr. Connecticut (ahem) so I move on...

October Road Boy - SO HOT. I'm with you...the girls and I call him Jewish boy (because he is Jewish in the movie PRIME). And if you haven't seen him in PRIME YOU NEED TO. I OWN the movie now because of him. ;)

Joy said...

Only you can really take me out of the dumps and have me oogling the mens on your blog, only you Brooke! Thanks for being there!

stephanie said...

Sawyer... yum!!

And Aidan is a great pick too.

In fact, I think I'm in complete agreement with everyone on your list.

But Sawyer is my fav.

*drool*

egan said...

I think Dylan grows on you. It was tough to see his wife murdered by his father. What a jerk Dylan's dad was.

"Met" is probably a strong word. During my buddy's 22 run, he got drunk in Mr. Aidan's bar and ended up getting booted out. We saw John Corbett outside and my buddy yelled out "I love your show, don't fook it up". I still give my buddy shit about this event 12 years later.

brookem said...

egan- that was indeed really shit that his dad would do such a thing. awful.

"22 run" ha! that got me. aidan owns a bar in real life too?! wait, sex and the city wasnt on 12 years ago...?

My life as a Not so Cover Girl said...

whats funny to me is i still refer to sex in the city like its still on...ha ha. I LOVE Aiden..but I love Big...Yes a problem i might add. But Aiden is like the perfect guy.

My life as a Not so Cover Girl said...

Oh & McDreamy, McSteamy all of the above on Greys are too much..but how about Denny??? they should have kept him...hes sexy even on the hospital bed!
