Let me start off by saying that when I say “TV”, I don’t mean the actual TV screen, okay? A TV screen is simply a piece of machinery. It is not the godly thing we call TV. As for why I think it requires godly status, let’s take a look.
First of all, my pretty extensive knowledge of English – American accent included – does not come from my years at college. That is the official answer at job interviews of course, but it kinda skirts the truth a little bit. Because… I just watched a lot of TV as a kid. And boy that helped! So if/when you have children for yourself: watching TV does not make them stupid – not intentionally anyways – but it could possibly help them in their future development. As long as you stay away from the likes of VTM. Don’t go to VTM. Don’t ever go there. Not even for the Disney movies, for they will be dubbed. Damn VTM. Really just the worst. Your kids are better off never even touching a TV if you want to just hand them over to VTM. Just… No. Throw ’em outside and lock the door. Playing outside is beneficial for miniature people too. (Miniature people = kids)
Secondly, I love TV because of everything you can experience because of it. Not just fun and laughter, but pity, compassion, anger, joy… And, yeah, it’s also a lot of fun, that’s true. But mostly I just really love TV, because there’s nothing like a good fiction story – keep reality-tv awaaaay from me! – that will completely make you forget where you are or even what your name is… There’s only one thing that matters: the story playing on your screen. The characters making you empathize with them. It’s absolutely the best.
Right now I’m watching Suits. It’s not the most amazing show I’ve ever seen, but it sure is good. The characters are fun. And with that I mean “hot”, but I’m sure you understood my meaning. However, it’s not Patrick J Adams that keeps me coming back. Nor is it Gabriel Macht who’s got me all in a tizzy.
Though I am admitting to you all, right here, right now, that I cannot get enough of that man in a SUIT. It looks divine. There’s nothing better than a man, cleanly shaven, in the world’s most power-hungry, irresistible suit. Just… DAMN.
But no, the man who’s got me hooked like a kid loves cake is Rick Hoffman. Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you: Louis Litt!
Right. Louis. Of all characters on the show, it’s crazy-ass creepy Louis Litt! Louis Litt who’ll show you his muddy butt after his mud bath, simply for the purpose of making sure you will never eat again. Why? Because… Dude is the very embodiment of an awesome character. Not only is it impossible to like him since he’s being a dick half the time, but you cannot do anything but love him. He will frustrate you to no end, he will disappoint you, he will take your feelings and drag them across a muddy cobble-stoned street… And then, he will look all puppy-eyed and hurt, because actions have consequences and there is nothing more painful than Louis being sad. It’s just the best. He’s just the best.
So, just to be clear. I am a proud member of Team Litt. And if you disagree with that statement in any way… Be prepared. Because you ’bout to be Litt up!
