Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Minka-mania! Soon, South Florida will be Minka's World: we'll just live in it; Charlie's Angels premieres on ABC-TV next Thursday

ABC-TV video: Behind the Action of Charlie's Angels - Charlie's Angels

In no time at all, much to the dismay of some, this South Florida-set TV show will regularly be among the twenty most-watched and recorded programs in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia.

And with that, the professional scolds among some in academe and at the Think Tanks, the Usual Suspects, will decry the lack of positive role models for young girls on TV.

Until then, though, the adorable and delightful Minka Kelly is back again on the small screen, and as anyone who knows me or who has read the blog since it started over four years ago knows, that's great news.
Here at the Hallandale Beach Blog, we don't care who knows: We LOVE Minka!

Minka Kelly is the sexiest woman alive 2010. Esquire, November 2010.
She's definitely in the conversation!

Now if only there was some way to have a joint Burn Notice-Charlie's Angels episode!
I think Michael's mom would like Eve's (Minka's) spunk! (Look out, Fiona!)
Who doesn't like a smart woman with spunk -besides Lou Grant?
Not me!

For the record, I NEVER saw the Charlie's Angels films in theaters nor have I ever watched them on TV, since the premise and the assembled cast just wasn't very appealing to me.
But 35 years ago, I did watch some of the original shows once in a while...

If you're a regular reader here, you already know about the erroneous Jaclyn Smith as my aunt story. If only...

Above, Chery Ladd and Gene Barry sing and dance in an episode from the original TV series. Oh, the things you have to do these days to catch a criminal or solve a mystery. Cheryl sang the national anthem before some Super Bowls, you know? Well, now you do. http://youtu.be/kjkWCYAuUN4

It's neither here nor there but when former 'Angel' Chery Ladd (Kris Munroe) -my favorite- played James Caan's wife on NBC-TV's "Las Vegas," and had Molly Sims as her daughter, tell me that wasn't absolutely perfect casting?

The two of them together were perfectly believable!

As I put it on my other blog South Beach Hoosier years ago...


Something to cheer about! NBC's Friday Night Lights
Actress Minka Kelly as Lyla Garrity, the heartbreaking soul of the Dillon Panthers. I honestly don't think there's anyone on television with a more natural and beautiful smile than Minka Kelly. See past articles about the show at:

My last Minka-related post was on April 15, 2011 titled, Quality writing counts! 'Friday Night Lights' last season begins tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC-TV,

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
