TVB: Hellcats Edition
If you’re not watching ‘Hellcats’ than you are missing out and should go watch it. Right now….or after you read this.
‘Hellcats’ tells the story of Marti, a pre-law student at Lancer University who looses her scholarship and is forced to join the cheerleading squad in order to stay in school. What could have been a cheesy teen-angst soap is actually a very touching, mature show about really relatable and complex characters.
Plus….it has lots of yummy men….which I present here for your viewing/reading pleasure.
Sooooo beautiful. Ya sorry, got caught up looking at the picture again. Lewis, played by Robbie Jones, is a wonderful piece of eye-candy. But more than that he is a passionate man with a strong set of morals. By leaving football and joining cheerleading, he is clearly a man who knows who he is an isn’t afraid to make unpopular decisions. He is comfortable in his identity that when his masculinity is challenged, he can simply walk away.
A softy at heart, he has a love of strong women. His long (and probably not over) relationship with Alice proves that as well as his attraction to Marti. Alice and Marti are two sides to the same coin - both driven, outspoken, and intelligent. And we here at TVB like men who love their ladies like that.
Plus he’s soooo pretty.
Ah DB Woodside, always a wonderful sight on my tv….I’ve been a fan since his days on Buffy. In Hellcats he plays the chief doctor guy for all the school’s athletics and is the paramour to the Hellcats’ coach, Vanessa. While we haven’t had too much of a chance to get to know the character what we have seen is pretty promising. He’s intelligent (he is a doctor after all), is very understanding and honest (when it came to Vanessa’s confession about Red), and a true romantic… I’m thinking that beautiful gazebo he set out for them. *melt* He’s hunky too, so that doesn’t hurt.
Dan is Marti’s best friend and Savannah’s boyfriend…and they are super cute together. Dan is a bit of a bad boy, but not really. He’s a free spirit and his decision to date Savannah was a bit of a life changer for him. He is artistic, loving, and easy-going.
It is his relationship with both Marti and Savannah that put him on this list. Both are strong, independent women and he loves both of them. Being Marti’s best friend can’t be the easiest thing but they’ve known each other forever and have each other’s back in a crisis. Savannah is definitely not the type of girl he dates, yet he is inexorably drawn to her and both of them are making positive changes in the other, compromising to make it work.
It is also really refreshing for a show to feature a main character that is not in college with the rest of the cast…that is unique.
Plus he’s a cutie.
Julian is Marti’s law professor and one of the biggest influences in her career life. He challenges Marti and pushes her to do her best and to embrace the brilliant mind she has. We still don’t know whether he will be a good character or a bad character yet, but he warranted inclusion on this list because its Gale Harold who plays him.
Gale Harold is best known from Queer as Folk (which if you’ve not seen, its fabulous, but warning contains graphic sexual content). But Gale won my heart from that show. Omg beautiful much!
And I know its wrong of me, but he and Marti had some fabulous chemistry….just me? If they pursue that as a plot point, it would probably put the character in the bad column, so we’ll have to see.
Morgan is Marti’s law class partner and we still don’t know if he’s a good character or not…much like Julian. I included him here because of all the men on the show he’s the one I’d most likely be attracted to in real life. He’s arrogant, brilliant, knows his Star Trek references, and has that grad-student look to him. He’s really cute.
Whether he’s attracted to Marti or not (personally I’m hoping the character turns out to be gay, because we need some diversity) he certainly likes to be around her - most likely for professional gain. He likes being challenged and having to stay sharp to stay ahead and Marti does that for him.
