Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay are awesome

I know that this is old news, but since I only watched the first season of White Collar in the past month, I wouldn’t have known when it was new… Anyway, Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay did a webcast back before the season 1 finale, answering fans’ questions. And watching them play off each other in it is awesome. You can tell these guys just really enjoy each other, and that’s no doubt a big part of why Neal and Peter’s relationship on the show is so interesting.

And Matt? Is a little shameless, and I love it. Right at the start he says to Tim, perfectly deadpan, “Here’s a good one… Um, how big is your gun?”. ┬ŽD

Three scenes from Covert Affairs

Covert Affairs starts next Tuesday on USA, and I’m actually really excited because I love the spy genre, and also because I already like both Chris Gorham (loved him in Popular, never actually watched Ugly Betty, though) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (who deserved better than Heroes ever gave him, in my opinion).

At any rate, three scenes from the pilot are up on the show’s YouTube channel. :D

So, about Irina Derevko…

So the impromptu Alias marathon is going along way faster than I expected it to, and last night I watched the season 2 premiere, The Enemy Walks In.

The enemy being, of course, one Irina Derevko.

So this seems like a good time to pause and post about something I’ve been thinking about since I rewatched episode 11, The Confession, in which Sydney first learns the truth about her mother. And basically what I’ve been thinking is more than any single other element, more than even Sydney herself, it’s Irina that truly defined Alias. Read more “So, about Irina Derevko…”

On White Collar

White CollarThe first 10 episodes of White Collar have been such a happy surprise for me. It’s actually the first USA (the network, not the country XP) original series I’ve really sat and watched, outside of a couple of eps of Psych I’ve caught here and there, and while I’d read that USA has been doing very well for itself in developing engaging tv series, I also wasn’t really sure how much to expect from it.

Fun show, great character moments all around… but in the end it’s all about Neal and his unlikely new bff
