OMG - TWO items about Television and one includes Michael Shanks!!!!
Right now, I'm traveling down memory lane, courtesy of Turner Classic Movie Channel. It's playing a flick I haven't seen in so many years, I don't think I had boobs the last time it was on! A movie my mom and I NEVER missed when it made an appearance (even if I missed school to see it!) - and what is this paragon of virtuous movie-making:  The 1933 version of Alice in Wonderland! Cary Grant as the Mock Turtle (singing!) and my White Knight (albeit elderly, fall-off-his-horse knight), Gary Cooper. Oh, heaven.

And the second big TV news? Well, you might remember a few months ago, SyFy had an anniversary show and interviewed stars from their shows, like, yeah, Stargate. One of them was Michael Shanks - and I bring this up because when his interview came up in the show, I was shocked by his appearance - he looked TERRIBLE - with suddenly dark hair and really...weird...looking. I was instantly worried until a few nights ago, when, while watching Murder, She Wrote (on HMC), a commercial came on to promote a new Hallmark movie called....

Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story - and in watching the promo clips, I thought, "Wow, the actor playing Howe looks a lot like Michael. Then they actually showed an entire scene - and WHAM! The load of bricks landed on my head and I realized it WAS Michael!!! YIPPPPEEE! And of course, it totally explained his appearance on the anniversary show. Big time.

So all you MS fans, look to the Hallmark Channel (NOT the Hallmark MOVIE Channel - they're different) for air date and in the meantime, here's an article about MS playing the role. Oh, and if you live in my area, the movie airs TOMORROW, the 4th, at 9:00PM, PST, then a repeat on Sunday at 1pm & 9:00! This sounds like the PERFECT movie for Michael; both acting-wise and hockey-wise! :)

Okay, back to Alice while looking forward to MS tomorrow and Sunday (of course I'll watch again, silly! LOL!) but let me leave you MS fans with this:

Michael as Gordie

I have zero interest in hockey, but funny how MS can make such a movie attractive. ;-P
