Auntie M is happy she DVR’ed the season opener of Bones.
Now she has something to watch this weekend whilst Doc is into his racing.
At our house we have to watch a ton of forensic shows, and Doc is very patient with me over that, largely because as a mystery writer I’m always on the lookout for something to use in my books.
And you all know by now I’m a slave to Mystery on Sunday nights. But the one new season opener I am most looking forward to? No guess here, it’s that luscious Hugh Laurie and the irascible doctor he plays on House:
For this one, it’s NOT the highly implausible and over-the-top medical plotlines that keep me glued–the nurse in me has a hearty laugh along with Doc usually at least once every show. No, it’s the impeccable American accent this actor manages each and every time he’s on the air. I defy anyone who’s a watcher to point out ONE single time he’s lapsed into his normal Brit-speak.
AND he plays the piano, really really well. AND he’s still married to his first wife (of 18 years, with 3 kids):
Maybe I like that he’s so tall and she’s so tiny, like Doc and me. Maybe I’m just a sucker for an accent (I admit that one freely). Maybe I like that he hates being separated from his family when he’s in LA filming and they’re back in London. Maybe I like that he’s not afraid to try different acting forms, from comedy with Emma Thompson in his early days to playing Wooster to Stephen Fry’s Jeeves, to being a dark doctor from New Jersey who limps.
I know, it’s those dimples!
