Which Of These TV Casts Would You Let Wrinkle Your Linens?
Just this week “Castle” released a noir-ish promo photo for their fourth season. In my opinion, not only is this series the epitome of “I Don’t Get It But, Okay, You Guys Seem To Like It,” but the photographer missed the memo that Stana Katic’s legs are the show’s second and third best asset.
You know, meh, the noir look has been done before, but at least it’s not the interminable Last Supper pose that other shows seem to think is so clever. In fact, the only pose more prevalent? The old Dogpile, Supine, Come Hither, We’re Nekkid, Don’t You Wish Your Physician Was Hot Like Me? Pose. In bed, on a gurney, piled onto the floor, the idea is the same. And it works for teen soaps, sitcoms, cable dramas and crime procedurals. Well not all cable dramas. I can’t even imagine “The Cast Of The Wire In Bed!” (That’s a lie. Michael K. Williams, call me.)
