My lovely husband recently bought me the full series of the television show Supernatural. I’ve seen the odd episode over the years, but it’s been wonderful watching commercial free, uninterrupted episodes and confirming that I am 100% Team Dean. Maybe it’s because he just seems so darn tortured and I’ve always been a sucker for a tormented man.
Watching the show had me thinking about T.V heroes. The big screen guys always seem to get the most attention (Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler, Zac Efron, Channing Tatum etc) and the small screen boys often get overlooked. So I thought it would be nice to celebrate some of our favourite TV hotties.
Without a doubt Dean Winchester (The uber handsome Jensen Ackles) is currently at the top of my list. He’s handsome, impulsive and cynical and certainly has a way with the ladies. He’s also loyal and brave and would do anything for those he loves. Sigh.
I’m generally more pro-Angel than pro-Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I’ve never understood the Dr McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) revolution when Dr McSteamy (Eric Dane) was generally only metres away in Grey’s Anatomy. I must admit to liking Dean Cain’s Superman. And in recent weeks Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) from Arrow has got my attention – and since he’s also a brave, tortured man I seem to have something of a pattern happening.
Do you have a favourite TV hero….is he a bad boy or boy next door? Superhero or villain? Is he a tormented man with secrets or an open book?
Leave a suggestion of your favourite TV hero and for a bit of fun I’ll use that name as the hero in one of my upcoming books!
