Yes, indeed, we do! Even if we don’t model our heroes on the aforementioned visual inspiration, the Muse still needs the nourishment. Toh-TAH-ly.
Isn’t that a great excuse to watch old MGM musicals, specifically those featuring Gene Kelly?
Wonderful, even. 🙂
Besides, if you’re not into crime and mysteries, our TV programme (CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, Navy CIS, Cold Case, Without a Trace, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, plus several German detective series) is uninspiring in the extreme. Not to talk about majorly depressing. By contrast, those old musicals are wonderful, feel-good entertainment, and you can count on them bringing a smile on your face.
And there is Gene Kelly, of course. Have I already mentioned Gene Kelly? *g*
