    Dear Santa,

    Please make Kristen Bell a regular on Heroes. And give her lots of scenes with Jack Coleman and David Anders.

    Yours sincerely, me.

    P.S Stop this sodding writers strike.



    Hah, I want Kristen Bell to be a regular too, but who doesn't? That hot thing that she is. I got my three seasons of Veronica Mars yesterday and I'm so excited, it's not even funny.

    Allison Mack rocks, she's the best actor on Smallville, after Michael Rosenbaum.

    Anywho watched the first part of the question and answer thing, and she seems really nice. I didn't know she could sing.

    Well regardless of what you may think of Smallville, Allison Mack is an amazing human being Her blog doesn't really talk about Smallville anyway it just her thoughts on life really and she does have some really cool things to say.

    Even though I think Smallville sucks, I have to agree with Allison being amazing. She's the only reason I sat through all of Seasons 5 & 6 of that horrid show and she's the only thing I miss about SV.

    Piper threatening to blow up Billie inKBV1 was also awesome.

    i didn't really mind Billie, and i guess i just liked that the show went back to the theme of sisterhood and the last two eps were a good finish i felt with everything getting wrapped up and all of the family members showing up along the way...it was corny but i guess i felt so beat down by Charmed at that point that it made sense...

    lol, I guess that's kinda true. I liked the whole sisterhood theme of Season 8 (reminded me of how BtVS went back to it's roots too), but it was executed poorly which really cheapened the whole effect they were trying to show.

    Ah, Charmed. I actually refuse to recognise anything in season 8 -- I hated it that much, that season doesn't exist in my world view. I loved season 7 and thought it did well to mention past events/old episodes etc. therefore that made a better final season IMO!

    This is a somewhat random segue but does anyone watch Torchwood here? Yes, it's terrible but there's little else to watch on Wednesday nights (that's my poor defence). Anyway, the reason I asked was because James Masters was in the first episode of series 2 which aired this week. I thought he was excellent. Thankfully (hating Spike for many years now)even though JM played an English, smarmy, snarky character he was surprisingly un-Spike like. I think he's in another episode at some point too... anyways I just thought he was pretty good. There was a nice Buffy homage too at the start of the episode when Jack turned up after having been missing for months; they basically reenacted that opening scene from 'When She Was Bad'.

    Yes I watch Torchwood and have seen this episode too, but I have an opposing view on JM I'm afraid. I guess JM's acting was ok but I found the character to be pointless and annoying and I was glad to see the back of him by the end of the episode. And (grone) he's gonna be back.



    As for Torchwood itself, I'll keep watching (there's usually at least 1 or 2 good episodes per season), but it seems to be going even further off the rails than it was heading in season 1. This show has no sense of direction it just meanders every which way and has every character screwing (or wanting to screw) every other character regardless of gender and preference - WTF!



    Sci-fi it aint, but perhaps comedy it is because it's so bad it's funny.

    I completely agree. Season 7 was miles better and fitted better as the final season. Season 8 just f*cked everything up.

    Sounds a little like Grey's Anatomy to me.

    BTW, anyone been watching Cashmere Mafia?

    So, the chances of someone saying yes to this question is really small, but does ANYONE here watch Asian dramas? And if so, do you have any recommendations. I'm watching one right now called Devil Beside You and it's pretty good if you're into the cheesy stuff. I guess if you're into anime then it's amusing. The opening alone can let you see how... [insert word or phrase here] the show is.

    Cool interview. She could've toned down the swearing though; it wasn't all that necessary. I didn't know she was a 90210 fan, that's pretty cool. I liked how she appreciated Veronica Mars; a lot of famous people don't appreciate what made them famous in the first place because they think they're better than it so it was nice to read that Kristen's still got her feet on the ground. BTW, no mention of Heroes? The interview sounded like it was done pre-Heroes but the magazine issue seems like it hasn't come out yet. And one thing I absolutely hate and the thing that's gonna put me off watching "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" is Russell Brand. I can't stand that tosser.

    That was a really interesting interview, I agree with NJZ, it's nice that she loved Veronica's character and how it got her where she is, I didn't know she was going to be popping up in that much movies!

    I had no clue she loved 90210, I've always wanted to watch that, mostly because of Shannen Doherty.
