Regular readers of this blog know I love nerds. There is something charming about thier innocence and anal retentiveness.
I first saw Thomas Gibson in Dharma and Greg. He played a very straightlaced lawyer. Greg reminded me a lot of my husband. I would almost fall off the chair laughing thinking my husband would do something just like this character. In a later season, he and Dharma were in a car accident. When Greg and his friend go the police station to pick up the trunk contents the cop hands him an itemzied list. The friend remarks how nice it was of them to do that. The cop said it was taped to the inside of the trunk lid.
Now my husband hasn't actually done that, but I could see him doing that.
I haven't watched Thomas Gibson on Criminal Minds for two reasons. I don't watch too many cops shows. I know too many real cops and how unrealistic those shows can be. Also, I think his attractiveness to me is tied in with the Greg character.
At least two of my works in progress have nerds in them. I reveal them as heroic, but not in an overbearing way. They are reluctant alpha males.
It's kind of fun.
Can you name your fave nerd hero?
