Still watching Boston Legal, and glad that they got rid of that miserable bint from the last series, but only to be replaced by two complete muppets, what's that all about?

And don't really like how it's pretty much dragging this one long shite case along with a small nothing going on on the side...got to be the last series for this show...

I get really confused (which is very easy for me) when it comes to actors and actresses being cast for shows/films.

Hugh Laurie in House. Mark Addy in that sitcom he was in last year. Linus Roache in Vanished. All acting with American accents.

Then you get Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones. Jonny Lee Miller in Smith. Anthony La Paglia playing Daphne's bro in Frasier (he was dire!). All acting with Brit accents.

I admit they all perform admirably but I do wonder why they cast "foreigners" to do the accent bit.

Pet peeve of mine is when American actresses will only call themselves "actors". Do they not like the feminine term?

Taped "The Street" on BBCAmerica earlier on for later viewing.

Looking forward to Lost premiere tonight!

Glad I'm not the only one who thought the actors La Paglia, Richard E Grant etc playing Daphnes brothers on Frasier were toe-curlingly bad.

Heroes is getting a bit gory. It's strange that on american network tv you can show someone who has had the top of their skull cut off and brain removed but god forbid they show a glimpse of a nipple!

Nipples emit highly dangerous lasers which can blind people. Using one to feed a baby could decimate an area, hence the use of lead-lined "nursing rooms" or tent-like shielding devices.

Well kidnapped is pretty good, I'm liking it, though slightly miffed off by the morning show who gave away a bit of the ending a couple weeks back, the muppets.

Lost, well after ages, finally on, couldn't wait, but in the end, it was a bit crap and think they need to wrap it up quick because I'm quickly starting to not really care about the muppets anymore...
