It’s Bim’s turn to delve into the roots of her thirst habits—and naturally, it turned out to be a journey through TV and film! Watching Tevin Campbell sing to Ashley on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and falling in love with Dwayne Wayne on A Different World led naturally to a love for Capeside’s finest, Pacey Witter … and also the Blue Moon Agency’s David Addison (Bruce Willis). We also trace Bim’s love for a Strong Nose to David Duchovny (Red Shoe Diaries) and ER’s Dr. Luka Kovač (Goran Višnjić). Thirst is complex, y’all.
In our Plus segment, we take a look at some of the cliché “sexy time” tropes in film and TV and why they work (or don’t): the wanton clearing of a desk (hello, Friends and also The Good Wife); the full-bodied slam against the wall/bookcase (Atonement, Always Be My Maybe, The Night Manager); and why we do not fool around with food.
