With every new season of television, thereâ€™s always one show that I find myself addicted to watching, and not simply because of interesting storylines, well-developed characters or solid acting. Iâ€™m talking about prime time, Grade A beef to drool over and fantasize about.
A couple of years ago, part of Desperate Housewives strong appeal for me wasnâ€™t entirely the ladies of Wisteria Lane but the men, including handy, hunky Mike Delfino (James Denton), Susanâ€™s ex-hubby Karl Mayer (Richard Burgi), Breeâ€™s stud-in-the-making gay son Andrew Van de Kamp (Shawn Pyfrom), and OF COURSE everyoneâ€™s favorite gardener, the perpetually shirtless John (Jesse Metcalfe). Yum.
Last year, like many gay men and straight gals, it was the hot convicts of Prison Break that had my imagination working overtime. Who could resist horny thoughts of doing some quality hard time with either tattooed Mike Scofield (Wentworth Miller)â€”those lips, those eyes!!â€”or his sexy bruiser of a brother, Lincoln Burrows (Aussie Dominic Purcell), not to mention black stallion Benjamin Franklin (Rockmond Dunbar) or Puerto Rican stud Fernando Sucre (Amaury Nolasco).
This yearâ€™s breakout hit, Heroes, not only offers a compelling and fascinating premise but some unexpected eye candy, too. Topping that list (and in my dreams, me) is Peter Petrelli (actor Milo Ventimiglia, who originally caught my eye years ago when he appeared on The Gilmore Girls as bad boy Jess), but I wouldnâ€™t kick flying politician Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar), heroin-addicted artist Isaac Menez (Santiago Cabrera, who originally planned on becoming a soccer player!!) or genetics professor Mohinder Suresh (Sendhill Ramamurthy) out of bed for eating crackers, either.
Whoâ€™s YOUR current fave TV stud?
