Because Aramis is hot. This is, and always has been, my only reason for watching this show.
It took me ages to get involved in fandom for that very reason, because everyone loves the show and the characters, whereas I am only here for the v. v. shallow reason of Aramis hotness. I cannot stress this enough; even though I would’ve thought this is obvious, really, it’s not like I’ve ever tried to hide my true motives. I got lured in by the power of Aramisness. I came for Aramis hotness, I stayed for fandom fun.
And on a perhaps slightly less shallow note: this show has such incredible potential. The production value and cast are excellent. It pains me to see that potential wasted on ridiculous plots and hamfisted dialogue. The actors and characters deserve much better.
