Happy Thanksgiving! And, if you’re not in the U.S., hello and welcome to Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013. We here at WWFTP are planning on spending the better part of today stuffing our faces. (Bread pudding? Bread pudding? Bread pudding?) On Friday, Becca will be heading out to work the sales; Kerry will be hitting the stores and drinking a (possibly) unhealthy amount of coffee; and I will be curled up, catching up on The Fades and finishing a present for my nephew.
But in the interest of celebrating the U.S.’s national day of gratitude, we thought we’d take the opportunity to share the things for which we’re thankful.
So much better than with that awful Island wig.
Stephen Amell. I’m not sure a more perfect leading man exists.
FSU football. And football in general.
A genius, his locks, his partner and his tortoise. (Clyde is in his trailer.)
Jonny Lee Miller. His Sherlock Holmes is only getting better.
I went with the derpiest photo I could find.
Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.
Ain’t she great?
Tatiana Maslany, on both Orphan Black and Parks and Recreation.
Wow. Robot faces are so *lifelike* these days.
Joss Whedon brought back Coulson. Clark Gregg is a joy to watch as he plays Coulson.
As pretty in color as it is in black & white.
Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare with actors from the Whedonverse is perfection.
Veronica Mar’s kickstarter. I’m not going to reveal how many times I saw the kickstarter and Ryan Hansen announcing Dick Casablancas would be back videos.
She may be blonde, but she’s not *that* blonde.
Emily Bett Rickards was made a series regular on Arrow. Team Arrow would not be the same if we didn’t have the trio.
David Tennant back on the small screen. (Including him soon being on the American version of Broadchurch; great choice, Fox.)
From left, Zachary Levi, Nathan Fillion and Tom Hiddleston at the premiere of “Thor: The Dark World.”
This picture exists.
Snarky Knightley on Emma Approved. I always have a hard time choosing between Mr. Darcy, Mr. Tilney and Mr. Knightley, and this web series is making it even harder.
This has nothing to do with why I love this show, but it’s as perfectly weird *as* the show, so it works for me!
The cast of Sleepy Hollow is probably 90 percent of why this show works, and I’m so grateful it does because I need something a little bizarre to start my week.
And by ‘machine,’ Britta means ‘Thursdays at 8/7C on NBC, starting Jan. 2, 2014.’ Duh doy.
We finally have a start date for season five of Community, and whatever may come of the new season, at least I know when the Greendale Seven
Six Five will be back on my screen.
Good, bad or neutral as Switzerland, Acker as Root is both scary and scary good.
Amy Acker on Person of Interest. She’s always managed to bring charm to her roles, but her role on PoI has given her a chance to stretch her artistic limits as a character with questionable morals and even more questionable sanity.
Leslie Knope: Role Model. (No. Seriously.)
The ladies of Parks and Recreation, who manage to be everything I want to be when I grow up, both on- and off-screen.
What’s amazing about funny women? Is it that they’re funny? Or that people actually pay attention when they’re talking?
Carol Burnett winning the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. I grew up watching her show, and between her professional talent and her personal grace under fire, I can’t imagine a better role model for an awkward, chatty little girl like I was.
And, finally, I’m thankful for Becca, who is the Marianne to my Elinor, and Kerry, who listens to my nonsense when I’m tired and rambling on pathetically. Both of them were willing to join me on this little blog adventure, and I’m so honored they did.
