You were either a McDreamy fan or on Team McSteamy. Never both. Patrick Dempsey‘s Derek Shepherd was a little too perfect (plus, no one stood a chance with Meredith around) but with Mark Sloan, there was always something about him that was so… attainable. He was sexy, naughty, cocky and always had that mischievous glint in his eye. And the way he looked at Lexie? Good golly.

Mark may be gone, but Eric Dane is not forgotten. He’s only gotten better with age and now he’s playing another guys’ guy on his new show, The Last Ship (which premieres Sunday, June 22 at 9 p.m. ET on Space). You may have thought he was hot before but he’s grown into a full-fledged man who we not only want to love and lust after but someone we can also respect. Plus, who doesn’t love a man in uniform? There are really no words to describe Dane’s hotness, so let’s let the pics do the work, shall we?

Look at the side eye, followed by the slow smile. Come ON! Who can control themselves with THAT?

Mark Sloan was a lover…

… a fighter …

… and a family man. Swoon.

He didn’t give preferential treatment. Women and men were fair game.

See — even Jackson couldn’t resist McSteamy!

Even when Mark was down in the dumps, he still smoldered, perhaps even more so.

But he was even better, all close up and happy.

In the beginning, he was the resident beefcake, all sexy and steamy (hence, the nickname)…

But then he met the woman of his dreams and he was a goner.

Some women might not want to be ogled this way, but others, well, ogle away!

And they were so fun and cute together.

He lost her, of course, but then realized what he had. Ahh, it’s always good when a man figures out he’s being a knucklehead.

Too bad for Mark, it was too late.

Dane took a bit of a break after Grey’s, hanging out with his kid. Ahhhh. We swoon.

But now he’s on to his new show, The Last Ship, which he has been tirelessly promoting here and around the world.

Dane plays Captain Tom Chandler, the commanding officer of the last ship in a world where there are few survivors aside from himself and his crew.

It’s a post-apocalyptic drama that comes from Michael Bay so expect it to be crazy. In a good way.

And expect lots of sexy shots of him in uniform. Who won’t love that?

Long live McSteamy! (Or should we say Capt. Steamy?) Am I right?
