Here’s the thing about a pop culture crush: It’s all about appreciation. As someone who honestly believes that every living human being is beautiful if you catch her at the right point, admitting that, say, Kristen Bell is adorable and charismatic in ‘The Good Place’ is just stating the obvious. My wife will watch nearly anything featuring Nathan Fillion or Mark Harmon, and I don’t have all the episodes of ‘The Jim Gaffigan Show’ on my DVR out of completism.
Okay, not *entirely* out of completism. I’m still a nerd collector, after all, leading us to today’s Ashley-Graham-inspired query…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is really psyched for the New Warriors series, with my favorite funny woman as Squirrel Girl, asking: Who is your most enduring pop culture crush?
Probably Alyson Hannigan. Based only on Willow, but that’s the only thing I need to see.
Jasmine from Dekaranger. More specifically, her actress, Ayumi Kinoshita, who is one of those people who has held multiple significant roles across both Super Sentai and Kamen Rider (as well as other roles, including anime voice work), but I do adore Jasmine the most out of all of her roles.
I also have never gotten over my youthful crush on Kimberly, the original Pink Power Ranger. Even seeing the actress now sets my heart aflutter.
Michael Schoeffling from 16 Candles.
Shannen Doherty of ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ fame.
