Cabana Boys: Thursday TV edition, plus BONUS! Great review news!

Don’t worry, we’ll get to Da Boyz momentarily, but first I just wanted to give myself a hearty WOOOOOOT on another great review for STARS! This one’s over at the Latina Book Club and it’s just lovely! Any time I can start a Monday off with “knock you off your seat” as a review is a good one, in my book.

Go, check it out. There’s even an interview with me in which I come off coherent and passionate about my subject matter. Which, you know, I am.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled boyz.

So, Thursday night. For me, this starts out with Bones which means David Boreanaz. I’ve mentioned more than once that Davey didn’t do it for me when he portrayed Angel. Not sure why other than I was a die-hard Wesley and Giles girl, which tells you something about my particular proclivities.



David’s another one of those to whom age has been quite kind. Something about rounding 40 and the little bit of gray sprinkled through the hair and the lines at the corners of his eyes are just adding up to something very, very interesting. (Same thing with Clooney. I never got Clooney until Ocean’s Eleven, you know?)

However, my favorite on Bones isn’t Seeley, as adorable as he is. Nope, it’s Hodgins. (Come on, like you didn’t see that coming?) And producers? Please to be putting TJ Thyne in t-shirts more often.

John Francis Daley has come a long way from the Freaks and Geeks days, but he still looks like a baby. A very cute baby with adorable dimples, but a baby. Even with the facial scruff he sported at the beginning of the season. He’ll probably have that baby face into his forties.

And looky what I found! A pic of all the male squinterns! Ryan Cartwright, Michael Grant Terry, Pej Vahdat, Eugene Byrd, and Joel David Moore. (Michael Grant Terry’s Wendell is perhaps my favorite, but they all have their charms.)

Thursday also means The Mentalist. Which means, Simon Baker. Who plays a slightly sociopathic Patrick Jane just beautifully. And he’s so pretty.

Actually, all of the guys in this cast are pretty in their own way. Owain Yeoman and his slightly goofy take Wayne Rigsby, but when it comes down to it, a damn good cop and pretty fearless.

And my favorite in the cast (of course) Tim Kang as the dry, sarcastic, absolutely imperturbable Kendall Cho. Seriously, he spends most episodes with this air of puzzled amazement like, “Really? I work with these people why, again?”

Imagine my shock when I found a pic of Tim Kang smiling and discovered he had dimples! And teeth! Lookit what a cutie he is!

And finally, because he’s going to be guesting on this week’s episode and his character was so memorable the first time around and because he’s one of my favorite character actors, Currie Graham who plays irrepressible billionaire Walter. (And for the CM fans, who also played the equally memorable Viper in “52 Pickup.”)

Okay, done now. And yes, I know, my darlings, that Fringe and Vampire Diaries are on Thursday nights as well. I’m starting with shows I watch, then I’ll start back over with shows I don’t watch, then maybe move on to cable shows… shows cancelled too soon… classic shows… I can keep this going indefinitely. ::nods::
