My fair Lance
So there I am, admiring Lance (Paul Adelstein) on Prison Break and his many medals and sighing over a man in uniform (although a beret is a very tricky look to pull off, as I have cause to know -- see below), when he...what? Puts the gun to his head? Oh, no! Not Lance o' the Lashes (as in eye lashes -- that guy has beautiful eyes and lovely dark lashes). But whew, his gun jammed. I think even the gun thought he was too pretty to ruin.
Then he saves Dr. Sarah! He's redeeming himself! Oh, Lance! And then, during the commercial, some faceless voice reveals that the actress who plays Dr. Sarah is pregnant and how will they work this into the show?
I know! I know! Dr. Sarah will be grateful to Lance o' the Lashes, and have gratitude sex (especially since, as far as she knows, she's never seeing Michael again) and she'll get pregnant and then Michael will find out and be all jealous... I tell ya, I had this figured out in about .5 seconds.
Obviously, I want more Lance!
But alas, it seems Michael has forgotten all about Sucre's girlfriend who is supposedly in a most perilous situation. What was up with that?
And then in 24, I've gotta tell ya, the suspension of my disbelief has pretty much gone the way of the dodo. I mean, it's still supposedly the day Jack got off the plane from China where he's been imprisoned and tortured and presumably not well fed for two years, and he's still The Man. Much as I love The Velvet-Voiced One, this is really, really, really stretching my credulity.
In other news, I wrote a sixteen-page chapter on Sunday, and a seventeen-page chapter yesterday. I'm on a roll! Whoo hooo!
This is me in uniform. Wearing a beret.
