Wilmer Valderrama: WTH?!?

WTH?!?  When did this man become so F-I-N-E?!?  I mean, I could see that he was a cutie pie from "That 70s Show," but talk about growing up well.  I noticed him on "Raising Hope," playing Melanie Griffith's man and --- YES --- it's Wilmer Valderrama.  Hubba hubba!!!  Just a little shout out!!!

I Love You, Lady Mary Crawley: Downtown Abbey

First of all, this post has absolutely NO SPOILERS.  And yet, it's true --- I love you, Lady Mary Crawley (played by Michelle Dockery) from Downton Abbey.  Everybody pretty much knows about the British phenomenon and drama, Downton Abbey.  The story basically goes:  The heirs to Downton Abbey go down in the Titanic (I ain't spoilin' nuthin' --- that comes out in the first 10 minutes of the series).  And, in order to save Downton Abbey, it must go to the next heir --- the COMPLETELY uninterested heir, Cousin Matthew. The ultimate?  The eldest daughter of three (none of them sons), Lady Mary Crawley --- should marry Cousin Matthew.  She's been called a "bitch" and a "minx," but I'll say it again --- I love you, Lady Mary Crawley.  I don't care what anybody says about you.  You have the burden of being the eldest, not a male, nor an heir and are a completely modern woman, bound by the standards of an English father, yet conflicted by the flexibility of an American mother.  (P.S. For the record --- I fell in love with Downton before the rest of America.)
