|New hot, Old hot|
Do you remember Remington Steele?
Let me refresh your memory.
I used to adore Pierce Brosnan. It was a puppy dog love. I was so young that I don't think I knew what a peen was. He was the first man I'd watched on TV who had an accent. Mysterious, handsome, arrogant, smart-ass. All the features of the ideal man to lust after but not to love. The day they canceled that show I thought my heart would stop. I didn't understand the feeling. It's the same one I got when they finished filming Eclipse here. Empty.
I had forgotten just how long ago this must have been. They fact that I am now married with two kids and have a career (plus I know what a peen is), did not seem to affect my perception of time. This photo puts it into a bit of perspective. Yes, the 80's were a long time ago.

Pierce stayed pretty hot through the 90's and for most of this century too.

Even with his role in Mamma Mia, not including the singing (if you can call it that), I was happy to see him as a sex symbol but just one from a good vintage.
But now that he is paired with Rob Pattinson in Remember Me and playing Rob's father no less, my love for Pierce is officially dead.

Even if Rob was born in 1986 (I bet you can all remember where you were then) I say out with the old and in with the new. He's legal but not applying for social security yet. That's a good sign.
I'm glad I wasn't paying attention when this Pierce photo came out in 2008.
Not only would I have fallen down dead from the shock but I wouldn't have had this
to pick me up.
Come back tomorrow for FanFic Fridays. It's gonna get hotter every week.
