Finally, someone listens to me

I have been saying for years, "get Nathan Fillion back on my tv!" After the (too early) cancellation of Firefly, Nathan has been woefully absent from my television. Sure, he guested on Buffy (as an evil priest *drool*), and showed up on Lost so he could get married and drugged by that dumb ho Kate, but he never was given that big part he so deserves.

But it looks like that's changing. This article reports that Nathan will be appearing in a FOX mid-season television show, Drive, about a race across America. Sounds like a dramatic version of The Amazing Race. But probably with more more murder and sex. Woo! Anyway, anything that brings Nathan back to me on a weekly basis automatically becomes awesome.

Oh, and the producer of the show? Tim Minear, duh.

See, priests can be snarky and cute! Of course, most of them won't rib your entrails out, but whatevs. All hail the return of Nathan!

And one more random Nathan fact. In January his movie, White Noise 2 opens. Sounds like a lame sequel, right? His wife in the movie is played by Starbuck from the new Battlestar Gallactica. Y'all I am so there. I don't care how bad it is. Nerds gotta represent!

When Bad Hair Happens to Good People

TV can be wonderful. It can bring such joy, but it can also bring such pain. Like when tv executives insist on hiding adorable boys behind horrible hair. WTF, tv executives, WTF? Here are some recent notable examples:

J-Pad from Supernatural. Also known as, the flying nun. Seriously. Not only does he never get laid on this show, but his hair has wings. I am pleased to report that in recent weeks his hair has improved, but I am still keeping my eye on him. He rates yellow on the Hair Alert Meter.

Milo on Heroes. My GOD the bangs. I think he has made brushing the emo bangs away from his face an essential part of his acting strategy. Lose the bangs, save the world. A solid orange on the Hair Alert Meter.

Sawyer. Oh, Sawyer. You were so promising. You were all manly and angsty. And then you had to keep being mean to Hurley and made me hate you. Also, your hair is gross. I realize there is no more shampoo since the hatch exploded, but Kate cut it once and she needs to do it again. STAT. Sawyer has been elevated to the red level on Hair Alert Meter.
