I remember the first time I saw Spencer back in 2007. I was flipping through the channels and saw this really cute guy sneaking around a house. I stopped to see what it was. It ended up being the episode where Reid was kidnapped by Tobias Hankle. I was hooked ever since. And have had a major crush on Spencer Reid ever since.
I love this geek chic style, as I like to call it that Spencer has. He's definitely got a dreamy style. I love all of his cardigans and sweater vests. It might not work on some people, but it totally works on him. And he certainly pulls off horn-rimmed glasses, as we saw in season one.
His style has certainly evolved from the beginning of the show, but still kept to his character. His hair has also had many changes throughout the progress of the show. My least favourite of his hair was season one, from then on I have had no complaints. When he first cut his hair short I was shocked and swore I wouldn't like it. Then I fell absolutely in love with it. Now that his hair is growing out some on the current season, I'm really starting to miss the "boy band" hair.
I was very much behind on the show by 6 or so episodes. I finally caught up a few weeks ago. Each time I go for a period without the show, I forget how much I love it. Then I watch it and think how I could ever go that long without watching the new episodes. I feel so bad for Reid this season. The poor guy just can't catch a break. Though I most certainly will be happy to volunteer to be his girlfriend. If only he weren't a fictional character...
Another thing that must be mentioned about Spencer is how sexy his intelligence is. I love that he has a random fact about pretty much anything. Smart is sexy. I love a man that dresses well, is smart, and loves to read books. Spencer is definitely a dream man for me. I know Derek Morgan is a favourite among the ladies, and he is handsome, but for me it will always be Dr. Spencer Reid.
