Kennex storms around the precinct with an air of perpetually crabby exasperation. He doesn't always play by the rules, but he always nabs the bad guy, sometimes while quipping. I immediately responded to the character, and I couldn't figure out why. Why did I find him so immediately enjoyable?
Oh, I don't know ...
... maybe because he's Dean Winchester?
I'm not just talking Karl Urban's physical resemblance to the Supernatural star, although they certainly have that. Kennex is damaged and difficult. He's got a problem with authority. But he's competent and dedicated, and underneath it all, he's got a good, loyal heart.
Now, check out Dean.
Am I nuts here? Those of you who watch both shows, help me out. Are there actual similarities, or do I just constantly have Dean Winchester on the brain? I mean, I do, obviously. But is it starting to affect my viewing of other shows?
(Oh, by the way: If you google "Keith Urban Jensen Ackles," the only thing you'll find is slash fic. You've been warned and/or advised.)
