So I'm not sure anyone will even read this, but lately I've seen quite a few people on my flist talking about being inbetween fandoms and wanting a tv-show they can be fannish about, and, well, I just wanted to rec one that I discovered recently. It's an Australian tv-show called Sea Patrol. It's about the Australian navy and is action-packed and chockfull of close male friendships. The plots aren't always very good, but there's lots of whump and good-looking guys (I do like to swim at the shallow end of the pool, yes ;o)), and more importantly, the characters actually really care about each other.
Personally, I'm rather taken with Billy "Spider" Webb (played by Jay Ryan).
( Pic under the cut )
He's the young new recruit on board who seems to have a penchant for getting into trouble and is consequently whumped frequently (and Jay Ryan does whump really well!). He's young, naive and vulnerable (and good-looking ;o)) and he makes my whumper's heart beat faster.
But if he's not your thing, there are plenty of other good-looking, whumpable guys on the show you might be drawn to. Anyway, if you're looking for something to fan on or if you crave some good whump, Sea Patrol is something to look into (at least, the first 3 seasons). I think you can find some episodes on YouTube. Great Spider whump eps that I can think of off the top of my head are Rescue Me, Through the Storm, Heart of Glass, Red Sky Morning and Red Reef.
