John Barrowman is proof positive that, the better-looking you are, the more insufferable you're allowed to be.

This is what happens when you give the cast of Torchwood more time off than the cast of Doctor Who!

John Barrowman is proof positive that, the better-looking you are, the more insufferable you're allowed to be.

But what is unique about Barrowman is that he's both delightful and insufferable in precisely equal proportions. It's like putting one hand in hot water and one hand in cold water--your body doesn't quite know how to process it. Other than wetting the bed, which is another unique effect Barrowman has on me.

This only confirms my theory that Barrowman is the new Biggins

It's official, Barrowman has replaced Gaga as the official new Metafilter crush.

I had a crush on him before it was cool.

I think this youtube comment.

"John Barrowman is only gay because if he wasn't there would be no more women for all´╗┐ the other men in the world."

Barrow-man, Barrow-man
Does whatever a barrow can
Painted red, yes my friends
On him so much depends
Look out, chickens! Here comes the Barrow-man

He's the love child of 80's Mark Harmon and 90's Tom Cruise.

I don't care how good-looking you are, no one can pull off a line like this:

"Here's my tribute to everything superhero--with a special JB twist!"

I wondered what had happened to Barrowman. I gather his career has gone downhill since Shark Attack 3.

One of the most amusing / horrifying things about Barrowman is he never seems to off British television. There's Torchwood of course, but he was a judge/panelist/whatever on the Andrew Lloyd Webber 'Give me a massive free advert for my shows/pick a star" thing. He had his own Sat night show recently where he would sing a bit, 'make peoples dreams come true' ie drag them on stage with him and do excruciating Candid Camera / Beadles About stunts / practical jokes in 'disguise'. And he also eventually crops up on a guest on just about everything on tv. His agent must literally say yes to everything. And he has utterly no shame.
