    I was watching Law and Order: SVU last night and it was an episode I haven't seen in a few months so I wouldn't have recognized her before this season of The Shield started but Becca was actually a lawyer on there too. So now that's Claudette, Tina & Becca that have all been in episodes of SVU that I know of.

    Is the actress who plays Mara in a new TV show? I thought I saw her in a commercial for The Heist...I think that's what it's called. Anyone know?

    Yeah.. that's her too. I've been seeing the previews for it while watching Deal or No Deal the past couple weeks, I just couldn't remember what it was called. You're right though. It's The Heist.

    The guy doing the serial rapist in the first season (the one who confronted Dutch with his "Detective Wagenbach has low self esteem..") was playing a federal agent in The Sopranos new season opener...
    I recognized his eyebrows first ...

    My last question in the trivia section just reminded me of the Cuddler-Rapist who's also in "The West Wing" & supposedly he's going to be playing Julia Louis-Dreyfus' ex-husband on "The New Adventures of Old Christine" too.

    I looked up Kenneth Johnson on imdb, and he has two upcoming movies (niether have summaries). One of them also has David Rees Snell in it.

    Yeah.. I read something saying that he and David were supposed to be in some movie together too, but it didn't say what. I think I read it in Kenneth Johnson's bio on the FX website.

    I had to laugh the other night because Mara was on a rerun of Law & Order SVU as a slutty waitress. It was weird because I had just been reading this forum and then turned the TV on and there she was.

    I must have either missed that one or wasn't paying attention when I saw that episode. I knew she was on Criminal Intent but I didn't know she was on SVU too.

    So I started watching season 1 of The Sopranos last night and I got about halfway through. Noticed Garza (who's also in Half Baked of course) was playing some guy that worked at some sort of plant store. He looked kinda gay in it though.

    Wouldn't it be nice to see Vic and Kav having coffee... Soprano style

    lol. You were right about The Sopranos. That show kicks some serious ass. I still like The Shield a little better but I'm thinking The Sopranos might come in second ahead of Nip/Tuck now. I spent like 6 hours watching those DVDs last night. I've still got about 59 more hours to go before I'm totally caught up though. I've got a lot of work to do. Looks like it's going to be a busy week or two coming up. lol.

    I'm glad you liked it, it is a great show. I'll have a hard time choosing which one I would put ahead between The Shield and The Sopranos... specially with that season kicking so much a$$ on The Shield...

    I just realized that John Cygan was on last night episode as Chief Johnson. Cygan played Officer Paulie Pentangeli, Tony Scali's friend and partner on The Commish. And Michael Chiklis played Scali. Coincidence? I think not.

    Paulie was one of my favorite TV character's of all time...I miss my childhood.

    Oh well, I have Lem now.
