Every so often a little bit of americana seeps into my little english world. It often has to do with TV, and most of it I find very welcoming. Like my 11 o' clock double showing of Friends (which lately has been taken over because of Cricket, which is not an English custom I have been able to adopt - however I do love the fact that they stop their cricket matches for lunch and tea. I do NOT love that the same channel that hosts cricket shows Friends and Will and Grace and that a match can last up to five days). Or I also quite enjoy the new series Lost (well, new to me - I don't know how long its been going on in the states for, so please don't ruin anything for me - I'm only on episode 3). I even ended up mildly enjoying a self-effacing Budweiser commercial regarding their sponsorship of the FA (that's soccer).
I DID NOT however enjoy the first episode of Nip/Tuck that I have ever seen in my life all because of that creepy kid who plays 'Matt' and who looks like a grown-up version of one of Michael Jackson's kids. Can someone that regularly watches this show please explain to me if there was some previous plot line involving drastic plastic surgery on this kid, why does he have eyelashes thicker than my eyebrows? Oh, and why does he have eyebrows thicker than my pubic hair? Please tell me there is some reasoning behind all this. Please.
Ok, I just went out looking for a picture of him to ad to the post, and hey! he has his own site. http://www.johnhensley.net/ And it is the creepiest thing I have ever seen. At first you think its just a picture of grown up Prince Michael, right? A still photo, right? Yeah, he doesn't stay still. I almost screamed when I saw him blink. I am sorry if there are any John Hensley fans out there, I'm sure he's a lovely guy. He just really freaks the crap out of me. So no, I will not be putting his picture on my site. You can go see it on his site, and try to have a staring contest with him. I bet you'll win.
