Al & 'The Unfortunate Rake'
The case for Al & 'The Unfortunate Rake'
Deadwood's Al Swearingen was many things - a pimp, a murderer, a civic leader, a dirty-mouthed philosopher. But in the show's final season, he revealed an unexpected dimension. Demurring from an appearance at Deadwood's first - and possibly last - Talent Night, while nursing wounded pride and a missing finger, while closing up the Gem he began to sing the old ballad, "The Unfortunate Rake". Starting quietly, he built to a towering crescendo that surely would have won him first prize.
The case for Yogurt
The key to being a badass spy? Yogurt. Starting with the pilot, Burn Notice regularly featured Michael Westen eating this tasty, protein-rich dairy product. Proving that yogurt isn't just for the ladies.
