So I'm watching Buffy the other night on Logo as I usually do, I like to watch shows as they air and not from DVD's, when the DVR switched over to Merlin on SyFy for the season finale (it's a cute show from the BBC but nothing special). I always find it interesting when channel surfing to see the same actor on multiple channels. In this instance the connection of Buffy and Merlin is Anthony Stewart Head as Mr Giles in Buffy and King Uther Pendragon on Merlin.
This got me thinking about the first time I met Mr Head and began my years-long crush on this sexy man. We met over coffee, Taster's Choice to be exact but many wouldn't call that swill coffee. No matter, we met and continued our chat over numerous cups of steaming Taster's Choice while gazing into each others eyes. Granted, he was on tv and his gazes were supposed to be at the woman in the commercial, he always seemed to me staring at me. Then as suddenly as it began, our meeting ended. It would be a few years until I found him again on Buffy but by then it was best that we just be friends.
Here is the commercial that started it all and all these years later I have to say that it is smoldering. Very provocative, sexy and humorous. It is worth 30 seconds of your time.

Jesse James has nothing on this guy.
I don't like the lipstick.
I'd improve this mugshot by brushing more hair over his (her?) face.
He's cute...even with the braids.
Have I posted him before? He's worth it.
He looks to sweet to be a killer.
You've got some dirt over your lip.
"Smile! It improves your face value!" - can you name the movie?

...it has be 27 years since this show has been on tv. I remember it fondly but wonder what I'll think of it all these years later. I can still remember the theme shng which went on to become a big hit (I've posted it below). It also starred one of my favorite 80's crushes, Michael Pare from Eddie and the Crusiers, just before he came into his hot sexiness. Here's Syfy's official press release.
SYFY TO PRESENT THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO MARATHON ON SUNDAY, JULY 4, FROM 9AM-5AM
New York, NY - June 1, 2010 - Syfy celebrates America's birthday with a 20-hour July 4th marathon of the cult classic The Greatest American Hero, which hasn't been seen on national television since its original network run in 1983. The holiday celebration airs Sunday, July 4, from 9AM-5AM (ET/PT).
Featuring a most unlikely superhero, The Greatest American Hero aired from 1981-83, starring William Katt, Robert Culp and Connie Selleca.
Katt portrayed Ralph Hinkley, a young high school teacher in Los Angeles who is set upon by extra-terrestrials while on a field trip in the desert. The aliens give him an incredible red flying suit with unknown powers - unfortunately Ralph loses the instruction book. Culp plays a neurotic FBI agent who persuades Ralph to use his new powers to fight crime. Selleca is Ralph's girlfriend, an attorney.

So here's my Carol Brady Flip. I think I even got the same color. I never thought about how hard it would be to take a shot of the back of my head and after about 20 shots, I got one worth sharing. Viewing yourself in a mirror is a-hell-of-a-lot less revealing than a photograph. It's time to get a haircut.
