Return to Transmission

After a few weeks of non-blogging I return with news of what some of our old favs from Buffy and Angel are doing in TV land.

TV Week interviewed Joss and reports his opinions of each actor. A pretty poor excuse for an article really, but it does tell us where we'll be able to see the actors next.

In summary:
Alyson Hannigan is starring in the sitcom How I Met Your Mother.
David Boreanaz is FBI agent Seeley Booth (possibly one of the stupidest names...ever!) in the procedural Bones.
Charisma Carpenter has a reoccurring role on Veronica Mars as Kendall Casablancas.
Nick Brendon is a funny chef in Kitchen Confidential. Glad to see he's back on track and out of rehab.
And finally,
James Marsters is back what he does best: playing the bad guy. Except this time the small town he terrorises is called, well, Smallville. He plays Professor Fine, aka Brainiac.
And Mr Whedon himself is going to make an appearance on Veronica Mars as a rental-car manager.

I've no idea whether any of these shows are likely to see the light of day here. Smallville disappeared during its second season because Nine thought prime-time Saturday night was a good time to air a show struggling for ratings. Dolts.

Veronica Mars is pretty good. It's got the intelligence of Buffy and Veronica has super powers of a sort.

I saw the first episode of Miracles (David Greenwalt is exec. producer) last week - it was pretty good to0.

What? But channel 9 are *so good* at choosing when to air shows! They always put them on at convenient times, especially if they are sci-fi (or well, anything that's not football). ;)

Hmmm. Sarcasm is not quite to effective through this medium. I hope you get my drift!

I really like Veronica Mars. It's kinda intelligent though doesn't have Buffy wit.

I'm sure you already know, being you, but have you seen the ads for both Veronica Mars and Smallville lately?

I don't recognise the Smallville footage so it doesn't seem like they're re-visiting where they nastily left off before.

Veronica Mars I believe is on tonight! And now that my tv-hogging housemate is away for a while I may get to watch it!
