On Men

I like Idris Elba.  If you have seen The Wire you’ll know who he is.  I am halfway through his new BBC series Luther.  He plays a good guy in this one, albeit one who is prone to rumination and angst about how to reconcile criminality, evil and the law.  I seem to like characters like this…Men that save the day, but then go home and struggle with their own issues (see Brian Kinney in the American version of Queer as Folk and Timothy Riggins in Friday Night Lights).
