I originally started watching it because I heard people talk about how mindblowingly attractive one Neal Caffrey was (such a charming con man!) and how he was slashed with Peter Burke who pretty much owned Caffrey. On the one hand, I can now fully appreciate Caffrey's ridiculously handsome self. On the other hand, I cannot bring myself to slash him with Peter because he's happily married to his wickedly awesome wife, Elizabeth Burke, whom I love and adore. I'm big on fidelity and commitment so the idea of taking Peter away from his wife and placing him with Caffrey gives me an icky twisted feeling in my gut.
So I've found a show that I don't slash (at least not yet; there hasn't been another recurring male character I want Caffrey with).
Also, I need to say how upset I am that they introduced Diana, a black lesbian, in the first episode and then promptly get rid of her for the following episodes until the last one. She was so cool! Very collected and smirky. I have a terrible feeling that they got rid of her to replace her with a female character Caffrey can flirt with; how unfair is that? I just hope I see more of her in the second season (the first episode of which I'm in the process of streaming as I type this).
So, Elizabeth and Diana are awesome female characters (I'm also liking Caffrey's landlady--June, I think). On the other hand, I do not approve of Kate and that one fence-girl whose name I can't recall. The first just uses Caffrey (and that's like kicking a puppy) and the latter is too desperate for Caffrey (it's kind of pathetic).
Lastly, MOZZIE. What can one possibly say about Mozzie? His neurosis is endearing; especially when he uses it to show he cares (giving Caffrey advice, for one). I WANT HIM TO BE MY FRIEND.
