a gifted man, part 1...

Gosh, the last few months have been busy and exciting. My life has changed dramatically (more on that later) for the better. So my weekly tv viewing is now limited to only the very best shows--Parenthood, Modern Family, Glee. Add to that short list is the best new drama of the season: A Gifted Man

The basic premise of A Gifted Man is both odd and familiar. A brilliant-but-arrogant neurosurgeon, Dr. Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson), is surprised by the reappearance of his ex-wife Anna (Jennifer Ehle) into his controlled life. His surprise turns to shock when it turns out that Anna, the love of his life *sigh* is, in fact,  a ghost. It's a moving medical show with a twist. 

Who am I kidding? The real reason I love the show: Patrick Wilson. I'd watch him in a reality show about accountants. Still, A Gifted Man is the perfect title because Wilson is truly gifted; he's a multi-talented Tony and Emmy nominated actor, dancer, and singer. And you know, he's not bad to look at...  

I LOVE his voice.     

Patrick Wilson sings 'The Street Where You Live' from My Fair Lady.
I've watched this clip umm, a few hundred times. 

In the perfect world, I'd wake up to Patrick singing 'Oh What A Beautiful Morning' while he brings me my almond milk coffee and half grapefruit. Ok, breakfast is optional. Ha!

My favourite Gap commercial for obvious reasons. 
Claire Danes' best work since "My So Called Life".

Rumour has it he sang Journey's 'Open Arms' to his wife at their wedding. Can you imagine?!
