My wish list of tv/film heroes who I think would have gone from super cool, to impossibly cool, if they had some grappling skills. Some of these references will probably be old, since I haven’t watched regular TV for some time:
1. Captain Mal from Firefly
2. Captain Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek: Next Generation
3. James Bond (I’m talking Sean Connery, not Daniel Craig)
4. And, from my favorite show in junior high, Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Just imagine it: that intense moment when you think all is lost because the hero is flat on his back in a fight scene?
I can’t remember if Picard ever really fought anyone, but it’s just cool to think if Sir Patrick Stewart pulling a slick sweep on someone.
Who would be on your wish list?
