Par for the course, but it’s a total change today from last night’s serious health-related entry. Today we must talk about the hotness of James “Spike” Marsters. In particular, we must talk about the beauty that is James Marsters’ hip bone, because ladies and gentlemen, fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” got a nice view of his hip bone in last night’s episode. My response? A bit of drool and a fervently whispered, “He’s so hot”, which is my mantra during any Spike scene. If I can find a screen capture, believe me, I’ll post it for you.
Last night during the entire episode (Episode 7.08, “Sleeper”), I couldn’t help but hope that Mr. Marsters finally gets Emmy recognition. Since Season Five he has had a LOT of character development and his acting is just outstanding. His character is so complex and JM handles whatever the writers throw at him. The only bad thing is that after this I can’t see him in any other role. I fear he’ll never have a real career because he’s SPIKE. He can’t be anything else in my mind. I want the British accent, the cocky attitude, the sneer. I want the tortured soul, the romantic, and the ever-faithful. Lucky for me, BtVS is out on DVD so that I can always have Spike, perhaps my favorite television character of all time.
And it’s not just because of that hip bone.
