Lose the shirt Alex! It is a POLL (about time too!)

There is something poetic about Alex taking off his shirt.

We haven´t been presented with many scenes of someone else getting his shirt off. It really is a miracle that this man has had to do it by himself all these years on our screens. So many wonderful lost opportunities…

of-intro

We would have loved to have this as a contender, but unfortunately the shirt never came off…sure winner, the way he just rips it off…*dear lord, I can´t breath*…

mick-shirtoff-intro

We are sure it requires great thespian skills to do it properly. SO please cast your vote to choose that Oscar-winning moment of taking it off……. (Maybe one of these days we will be getting an award winning performance of dropping those pants – the tetanus shot scene was at least worthy of a nomination :razz:)

1. H50 – Lana I Ka Moana

303-shirtoff2

2. H50 – Ho´apono

107-shirtoff2

3. Moonlight – Fever

4. H50 – Lanakila

5. Oyster Farmer

OF-shirtoff

6. H50 – Heihei

110-shirtoff

7. The Back-Up Plan

Perhaps you would like to listen to some mood setting music while contemplating your options. ..Oopsie, just been notified about copywright claim so my soundclip is gone, but this is the song I wanted to add  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Fa4lOQfbA;)

  1. You know McG is normaly my favorite in all things but if Stan doesn’t win this poll there is no justice. 😉

    You know, I just had a really good laugh because of his faces. Just look at him. With every shirt off the same face. Except for Moonlight, but he didn’t need to pull the thing over his head.

    Absolutely love this poll. Oh, you mean I have to decide? Darn.

  5. Btw, I think you can see the gecko tatt on Stan. In the movie this scene was much darker but I brightened it quite a bit so it is more visible. It is covered but when you know it is there, you see the gecko 🙂

    It was so hard to choose that I had to re-watch the scenes quite a few times. I wanted to vote for Stan because I like the reason why he was taking the shirt off and it was HOT but then i had to vote n4.
    There’s something about the way his pants look when the shirt comes off….like if they were supposed to be next…..
    Do I make any sense? Doubt it since my brain is currently scrambled 🙂

    Thank you Paula for another great poll. It’s a nice way to start a year with a intense study about Alex taking off his shirt! And why is so difficult to choose? Because as usually i can’t decide which i like the most. It’s your “fault”. You are an expert on complicate our vote with your incredible skills of choosing the photos and gifs.

  14. I know I have to choose, but it’s so HARD! I love his new healthy, meaty body and Stan is undressing for all the right reasons, but I can’t stop drooling over #2. I remember seeing this for the first time and nearly wore out my DVR rewatching it in slow motion over and over again. His pants are so low and his “man dents”…*slobber* and those delicious abs. I never noticed his “pain face” before, but then I’m a perv , and when skin starts showing, my eyes zero in on the target. 😉

    I have been typing and deleting and retyping for an hour….can you believe me of all people is having a difficult time coming up with anything to say?!!!! This post and this poll has me perplexed, confused, frustrated and overheated. Two questions Paula…..are you trying to kill me and WHERE.IS.THE.ALL.THE.ABOVE.BUTTON.?!!!! I know, I know, it’s not supposed to be an easy choice…but does it have to be so HARD?!!!

    *ten minutes later* Okay…I think I have it narrowed down to 3…no not #3…I mean 3 of them – #1,#2,#7. I love S3’s beefy McG….so beautiful….so healthy!! I also love Steve’s rock hard body from S1…jeez his abs and deep man-V in #2 are calling out to me to rub my hands up and down them…ok…mostly down them!!! Then there is Stan….sweet, sexy Stan….with his amazing body and gorgeous hairy chest (shudder)…taking that shirt off for a very special purpose!!

    *ten minutes later* Okay…I think I finally have a favourite….because it’s the one that gets me the most hot and bothered….(I feel after all the effort it took that there should be a drum roll here so) *insert drum roll here*…..Stan is the man….who has my vote (and my panties)!!!!

    I love this poll, how much power is Alex. I have stayed with Mick, that’s sensuality. By the way, beautiful song, but maybe I would have put the Thelo na koitao of Sakis Rouvas, who says things like “Close the curtains. Take off your clothes. Touch your body. I want to watch”.

    • I really couldn´t remember any other “sexy” songs, apart from Barry White, this was a corny old one. Not to be taken too seriously 😀

        My sexy songs are this Thelo na koitao, another for Sakis, Shake it (Skin on skin is pure delight), Sexy, of the German Tom Beck, and with that I think Alex would get along because Tom is also a TV cop. Shake it up shekerim for the turkish Kenan Dogulu (shekerim is turkish for Sweetheart), another Greek one, Aphrodisiac, of Eleutheria Eleutheriou and one from Macedonia Ninanajna sung by Elena Risteska. And I’m waiting for the new batch of songs from Malmo, Eurovision, a music contest is done in Europe, removing Tom, all have participated.

        It’s not really a ‘sexy song’, but I love dancing to the Song of Seikilos performed by Savae (traditional arrangement). It’s the earliest known surviving complete musical composition from the 1st century AD, and there’s actually something sensual and almost transformative when you’re dancing to ancient history like that. Mind you when I say ‘dancing’ that is when I’m pain free, and mobile enough to be able to dance.

      To me Steve number two looks someone stuck an air hose up his arse, pumped him up, and then sucked all the air out. He’s like one of those space bags.

      If I had a choice though, which I don’t because MICK! 😀 (ahem, sorry). If I had a choice, between Steve 1 and Steve 2 though, I would pick Steve 2, because not loving the sunburn on Steve 1 nor the horribly faded looking tattoo. I look at Steve 1 and my first thought is ‘Sun damage and potential melanoma, mmmm so not hot’.

        Wait a sec *delayed light bulb moment* Do you think all 116 votes for Mick have come from me, single handed? *LOL* I will admit I’ve voted half a dozen times or more on pretty much all of the options given (points to comment above *stupid OCD tendencies*), which actually means I’ve voted against Mick a number of times (and again I say *stupid OCD tendencies*). The rest of the votes are all coming from other Moonlight fans. For the past couple of days all I’ve done is pressed the ‘results’ button and watched the Mick!votes keep rolling in 😀

    I’ve got to go with Stan too – nothing against Steve, he’s my first love after all, but that scene in TBUP is right after he throws the stupid pillow out the window. Pulling off the shirt says “I’m all the pillow you need”. And Stan IS furrier than the Steves and Micks. And Jack is so young, I don’t know whether to bake him cookies or F him senseless.
    I do love that rip-off-the-shirt scene from ML, however – can we at least give it an honorable mention???

    Rewatching (for the zillionth time) as a little bedtime treat and just noticed that in every scene except #4 he pulls the shirt up and over his head from the hem. In #4, he grabs it at the neck or shoulders and pulls it over his head that way. He was changing in that scene because the shirt had blood on it. Guess that’s why he used the alternate technique.

    It’s late and I’m rambling. Just thought it was interesting.

      You are so right Karin…..and I think that show some superior acting skills for that scene, adapting to the situation. Maybe that makes it more Oscar material, don’t you think?
      And to me it also looks like he is not pulling his face as much as in the others.
