: Hi WilSon Blvd! How is everyone doing? I haven't posted in a couple of weeks because, well, to be honest I just needed a break after all that went down with Chandler. Plus, I've been less than enthused with this back burner storyline WilSon is involved in...it just limps along and these boys are just so much better than this.
One exception...I did love the episode a couple weeks ago where Sonny and Will testified at Sami's trial. That seemed like the closest we've gotten to vintage WilSon in a long while. When Sonny was helping Will with his tie at the apartment, I had a flashback to him doing the same with Will's tux before the Gack non-wedding. Back then he said "you look hot" to Will; last week he said "you look fantastic". So we've gone from hot to fantastic...which about sums up where the romance has gone with these two...thanks writers...grrr!
I also had to step away to process this recast business. I didn't know who Guy Wilson was until about 20 minutes ago when I caught up on posts. My initial take is this - First, he really doesn't look much like Chandler...which could be good or bad. He is much edgier and harder looking with the strong jawline. Not sure I can picture him with Freddie at the moment...I always thought Freddie and Chandler had a similar softness/cuteness to their looks that meshed well.
Second, I must say that I did like his acting on the NCIS clips, and that he was playing a gay character. That was meaningful to me. I really hope he is comfortable immersing himself in a gay character the way Freddie does...that's the only way these two can find chemistry quickly.
Lastly, this will no doubt be different...a different couple, different dymanic, different mannerisms. It will be better or worse, but certainly not the same. I will wait and see, then decide.
I hope everyone is well and I will try to post more often now that I've reconnected a bit with the show and WilSon. Hugs all!
