He's at home...washing his tights.

So, there's this new show on TNT called "The Company." I have not yet seen it - though it is patiently waiting for me on DV-R. It stars Chris O'Donnell, Alfred Molina, and, the main reason I want to watch - Michael Keaton. Is it weird that I am still harboring a bit of a crush on Michael Keaton from back when he played "Batman" in 1989??? I think so. Loved him - loved the hair, the glasses, the tortured soul...and of course, the Batsuit (w/o the nipples, thankyouverymuch, George Clooney). Loved all of it.

This goes back to the strange celeb crush question I asked some years ago....I guess I can add "Michael Keaton circa 1989" to the list, huh?

And speaking of shows on basic cable- anyone watching "Mad Men" on AMC? (This is why I love my DV-R.) The lead character, Don Draper...what's up with that guy? Seriously tortured soul. Excellent show - if you're not watching, I suggest you check it out....if only to relive the good ol' days: Drinking bloody marys at client meetings, drinking scotch in the privacy of your office, drinking mint juleps while pregnant. (Are you seeing a pattern here?) Ooh, also - Niagara Falls on your honeymoon, and flirtin' with the gals in the typing pool. Good stuff. It's certainly a time period that hasn't received much attention- and it is fascinating.
