That I can't quite put my finger on....

He's hideous! Can not understand the attraction - sinister but not in a good way - in a creepy way.

It's the fact that even when you can't see him, you can tell from his tone of voice that he has that bloody inane grin plastered on his face.

Brian Cox -> grin

I agree, I find him a bit creepy, its the hair, too shiny

arghhhh, I now can't get that image out of my head.....I would love to learn about whatever it is he is postulating, so I can impress DH, but have to change channel after 30 seconds

I think he has made a pact with the devil. He isn't aging in a natural way.

Aw, he's OK is our Brian. Although, coincidentally, my smallest cat's tail hair looks pretty much exactly like Prof Brian's barnet.

He terrifies me, I don't even like the sound of his voice, I cannot watch him.


I can imagine him coming closer and closer to the screen, all the while hypnotizing you with his monotonous drone, then slowly ripping off his skin to reveal a grinning clown face.....

He is profoundly weird. He'll come to nasty end, you mark my words.

Glad its not just me that doesn't like me smile

Its the grin and his face is always shiney even DH commented on how shiney his face is.

glad i am not alone, voice, hair, teeth......he sort of looks like cross between a mod and someones mum!!!!!

It's his lips that creep me out.

He has a strange evangelistic manner, yet he claims to be an atheist. It doesn't add up. He's up to something. I'm on to him.

He doesn't say anything that hasn't been said before. I got really excited about his programs, but it's all the same old stuff. He's the new BBC thing that we've all got to love... I'm sure he's a nice person, though...

Oh, I feel sane again.
Every woman I know thinks he is the dog's bollocks, and while I appreciate he's talking about complicated shit with a regional accent so we're all supposed to think he's the Jamie Oliver of constellations or something, I just want to grab him and stick him by his lips to a window like a gonk.
He does that Tony Blair thing with his hands as well, like he's massaging an invisible breast. Never a good sign.

It's because he would actually make quite a pretty women!

Poor Brian Cox. I hope he doesn't read this thread. He's a MNer, didn't you know? wink

Narketta Fri 08-Apr-11 13:36:27

I think the reason he knows so much about space is because he's actually an alien. grin

lili2010 Fri 08-Apr-11 13:40:38

I thought he might be a wizard. Prof Wizard Brian Cox.

HipHopopotomus Fri 08-Apr-11 13:58:19

I don't know who he is but he gets mentioned on MN LOTS!

This thread has made me laugh so much my work colleagues must think I'm mental! I'm still sniggering now grin

I share the same regional accent as The Prof being from the same town and all. They have a huge picture of him in the reception area of his old school which made me laugh when i went to visit said school. But then again they also have a picture of whatsherface - she played Raquel in Corrie - hanging up there as well.

Oh I'd SO send DS to a school that Professor Brian Cox & Sarah Lancashire went to grinwink
