I Love TV
What am I watching and loving at the moment?
Huff - I am mourning this show already, as I have been informed it has been cancelled.
Hank Azaria - absolutely brilliant as the confused mid-life crisis beset psychiatrist, Huff.
Andy Comeau - inspired as his tortured schitzophrenic brother, Teddy.
Oliver Platt - yet another brilliant performance as the over-indulging lawyer, Russell.
Blythe Danner - the most incredibly beautiful woman playing an 'old-money' woman coping in modern times.
Anton Yelchin - stunning teen actor holding his own as Byrd, the confused son of Huff struggling to maintain his own identity.
NCIS - we discovered this recently on FX (our new regular satellite channel) - so it'll probably be cancelled, if it hasn't already.......
Mark Harmon - a comfortable actor, familiar (if you check you'll remember Chicago Hope, if you don't it'll drive you potty!), playing tough Special Agent Leroy Gibbs.
Michael Wetherly - remember Dark Angel? He probably does, being as he was Logan in another life.
Pauley Perrette - I can't help feeling this is the new face of TV, a wonderful intelligent beautiful woman with a sparky sense of humour, who, in reality, has a degree in criminology.
Cote de Pablo - exotic name for an exotic beauty who plays magically off Wetherly.
Sean Murry - just a nice looking young man you want to take home to mom.
David McCallum - something England does well...he was Illya Kuryakin in Man From UNCLE a million years ago - but still looking pretty good!
And another one to watch - Discovery Atlas.
Just seen the first of this series on China - very, very good. Not denying their history but using it to illustrate modern Chinese society. Next week, Italy!
