I feel like I still get into a “Ben or Noel?” conversation at least a few times a year. At least one of them is with my mom, with whom I watched the entire series in about ten days during a disgusting Seattle heat wave.
If I start talking about Felicity too much this’ll be the longest post in Tumblr history, but based entirely on looks I am Team Ben 100%. I mean, there’s no doubt that Scott Foley has grown into a fine-looking man (evidenced most recently on Grey’s Anatomy, where he was also SUPER charming and thus destined to die a’la Denny Duquette), but Speedman…oh Speedy. He’s tall and lean, which you have probably already guessed is my favorite. He has that goofy smile that crinkles his eyes. He also excels (especially as Ben) at the most endearing boy thing in the world, where he sort of tilts his head down and looks up at you while rubbing the back of his head. Arg, I can’t describe it in words, but if you’ve watched Felicity you know it, and it just completely melts me.
I should note that I was not into him AT ALL in the Underworld movies. Something about that long hair just really emphasized his admittedly large-ish nose.
Oh, and mom is Team Noel because all moms are Team Noel.
