Thrusty Thursday: Tahmoh Penikett

Hey, the blog and I are back from hiatus! In honor of my delightful recent trip to Canada, I say we thrust against someone from the great white North. So vast a population of Canadian foxes to poach from… But let's go with actor Tahmoh Penikett, who hails not merely from Canada, but from the fricking YUKON. My loins, how they tremble!

My husband was very nice about my not-especially-subtle crush on Penikett when we watched the Battlestar Galactica relaunch a year or two ago… Then again, Helo's hotness kept me actually paying attention through an entire science fiction series—no small feat—so perhaps my tactless ogling was just the price my man was willing to pay to watch something he enjoyed. And I enjoyed the show greatly as well, beyond the mere splendor of Helo's foxtastical arms in that excellent double-tank-top ensemble. (Penikett's also in Dollhouse and quite a few other shows and films, but I much preferred him sweaty and sleeveless, handsome though his face is.)

I tried and tried to find an embeddable video of that scene where Helo and Boomer get it ON in the rain on Caprica because that shit was SEXY. But the folks who own the show must have seriously studious copyright police, as nary a clip I found. Dag.

So onward to the mantage!

Oh right, and…


  1. Welcome back! Missed having a reason to visit your pretty blog.

  2. Wow, he's from the Yukon! I thought only 15 people lived there! How did they produce such a sexy one?
    And you're right, Helo was one of the best reasons to watch BSG. I would've gladly run over Jamie Bamber with my car (and the horrible little greasy-haired man, too), but Helo was solid.

  3. Clearly, Ruthie, the Yukon is hoarding a stable of men bred for their superior and rugged genes. Feel like a road trip? I'll bring the tranq darts if you pay for the gas.

  4. We'll have to strap our water & gas supply to the roof of your car. Why don't you make sure it starts first?

  5. It starts, it starts! [honks from outside Ruthie's place] Let's GO!
