Character Study: Phil Coulson

It’s always the quiet ones. Even more so if they’re also the little guy. This is most certainly the case if that quiet little guy is one Phil Coulson.

Coulson isn’t exactly a character one would initially expect to have a loyal following, much less receive a spin-off tv series. Played flawlessly by the charming and handsome Clark Gregg, when Coulson first debuted in Iron Man, he made it a point to be as quiet and non-assuming as humanly possible.

Understandable, given that he is a secret agent.

The Best Television Shows of 2018

While 2018 brought more than a few classics to the big screen, the small screen didn’t disappoint either. 2018 saw a year of reboots, new classics, long overdue new seasons, and a whole lot of binge-watching. History was made in entertainment be it a wedding, a crossover or three, or a few sporting events. A few shows redeemed themselves just as they signed off for the final time.

As is the standard, in order for a show to be considered for my list, it has to pass the Upkins Media Litmus Test.

So without further adieu, the following are my picks for The Best Television Shows of 2018:

The Great DILF Post Volume 2

I LOVE DILFS AND I CANNOT LIE! OH YOU OTHER BROTHERS CAN’T DENY!!

So by popular demand and “heavy twisting of my arm,” I’m doing another volume of The Great DILF Post. If you missed the first volume you can have a gander here.

Because this list is larger (and size does matter), I could explain in detail why each are a fave but as the old adages go, a pic is worth a thousand words, seeing is believing and that’s all the explanation needed. I will say each of these gents have a distinct  look, style, and swagger that makes them timeless.

While there are many definitions for DILFs, to qualify for this list, the extraordinary gentlemen have to be old enough to actually be around my parents’ age.

So without further adieu……

While most people would take Coulson at face value, a few of us immediately recognized that when it came to our Secret Agent Man, there was more to him than meets the eye.

The Consultant

So confession time. I’ve been smitten with actor Clark Gregg and think that he was the sexiest thing in both the Avengers and the Iron Man films. Agent Phil Coulson was one of my favorite characters and he brought an understated cool, mystique and hint of an adorkable charm that was rare, nuanced and refreshing. And let’s keep it 100, the man is hella sexy. Case in point.
