Quadruple backflip squee! It’s a Friday night full of multiple squeeage!
- Colm Meany guests on Men in Trees. Perhaps best known on TV as the bridge between Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, he stayed in space for Stargate: Atlantis. He’s also guested on Remington Steele, MacGyver, and Doctor Quinn: Medicine Woman–you’ll know him when you see him. While I’m whining as much as anyone about the American remake of Life on Mars, he’s pretty much casting perfection for it.
- Kathleen York pops up on Ghost Whisperer. While “Bird” and I are still on the outs over her participation in Crash (wow, my Crash hatred knows no boundaries), I’ll always love her as Congresswoman Andi/y Wyatt–Toby’s ex, mom to Huck and Molly–on The West Wing.
- Ari Graynor graces Numb3rs. If she isn’t embroiled in a mystery involving a bus driving off a cliff and killing a bunch of high school kids or scoring ecstacy from her roommate’s Mobbed-up boyfriend, it won’t be as fun as her stint as a bus driver’s daughter on Veronica Mars or as Meadow’s college roommate on The Sopranos.
- Finally–and perhaps my personal favorite–Kay Panabaker joins Kathleen York on Ghost Whisperer. Young Miss Panabaker’s been all over the place (bless her heart, she was George in the new Nancy Drew. I love George)–CSI, ER, even Two and a Half Men. But she’s perhaps been best as the demon–a cold spoonful of evil served up in a velvet dress–controlling Wolfram and Hart’s White Room on Angel (that role almost made her the model for Doctor Who‘s version of the devil, too, which is more than a little hilarious).
