Character Flaws…

I don’t watch much TV, more due to lack of time than lack of interest though there is┬ásome ambivalence there. There are two shows, though, that have me hooked, Mad Men and Californication. I’m beginning to┬áthink I am drawn to characters with flaws.

Jon Hamm

Don Draper (pic from AMC.com)

Don Draper is uber-cool but drinks too much, cheats on his wife and then there is that whole took-the-identity-of-his-dead-commanding-officer thing. But I still think he’s just cool (the metro/girl in me likes his clothes, too).

HANK MOODY

Hank Moody (pic from Showtime.com)

Then there is Hank Moody from Californication who is even more F-ed up than Don Draper. He, too, drinks too much and cheats on his baby-momma but I find him to be cool, too, in a self-hating writer sort of way.

I have assured my wife many times that it’s not because I want to start running around and sleeping with other women. Maybe it’s because they’re both creative and I envy that quality in them.

I don’t know. Weird. Just thought I would share.
