Hot Dish for January

Lately, I have been hearing a lot of buzz about a new show from the creators of Grey's Anatomy. This new show (called Off The Map) is also a medical drama, only it is set in a tiny village in a South American country. While the premise of the show (young doctors trying to save the world) does peak my interest, it really is the beautiful scenery in the previews that attracts and holds my attention. And honey, I don't mean the mountains or the beaches!!

Let me introduce you to one of the main characters of this new show -- Ben Keeton. This man pretty much has it all -- sexy eyes, hair that is begging for my hands to run through it and an accent that sends shivers down my spine. Oh yeah, he's a doctor too!

As I began researching Martin Henderson, the actor how plays Ben Keeton, I learned a couple interesting facts. He was born in Auckland, New Zealand -- thus the spine-shivery accent. He is a man who takes his craft seriously -- when he moved to the US to try acting, he enrolled in a 2-year program to hone his skills (this was after he was acknowledged as an accomplished actor in New Zealand). But as I gazed into those beautiful green eyes, I realized I have been lost in them before. Not in person, of course, though I wish that were true! Martin Henderson played a pivotal role in one of my favorite movies -- the Bollywood hit, Bride and Prejudice. Martin played the character Darcy.

*sigh* Don't those eyes just say "I'm waiting just for you" ?

  1. The "South African village" is filmed in Hawaii near the Kuoloa Ranch where Lost, Fifty First Kisses and Jurassic Park were also filmed. Aerial shots of the Kuoloa Ranch periodically appear on Hawaii Five O.

    Alex O'Laughlin remains the hot dish in Hawaii ... with Scott Caan a close second.

  2. Holy Cow, Kim. You have all three of them in Hawaii? Talk about your Hot Dish jackpot!

    Oh, and I agree with you. Alex is still my favorite Hot Dish on TV.

  3. Buffie, the preview commercials for Off the Map have been catching my eye too...for obvious reasons. :-)

    I recorded the first episode the other night but haven't had a chance to watch yet. Looking forward to it!

  4. Kim, I agree with PJ. You have definitely hit the Hot Dish jackpot! *g*

    Mmmmm, yes, on Alex O'Laughlin. I've loved him since he starred on Moonlight---still mad they canceled it!

    Buffie, excellent choice for this month's Hot Dish!! As soon as you said Bride and Prejudice, I said "yes." I loved him in that! Gotta check out his new show, too. For the scenery, of course. ;-)

  5. Um, yeah. He is definitely Hot Dish worthy, Buffie. I could picture him as many, many heroes that I read about. Yummilicious!

  6. Hey Kim!

    My, aren't you the lucky one to be where all three of those hunky guys are located!! Have you seen any of them ... up close and personal?

    And yes, I agree with you, Alex is still the number one hottie there, but I have to say that I enjoy Martin too! And the show wasn't half bad either.

  7. PJ, I watched the first episode and thought it was really good first show. It peaked my interest enough that I will watch it next week. Let me know what you think after you watch it.

  8. As soon as you said Bride and Prejudice, I said "yes." I loved him in that!

    Wasn't that just a great movie! I really loved it too, and him in it!!!

  9. Yummilicious!

    Yep, that's the perfect word, Andrea!
