TV Watch

The fall TV season is well underway, and it's nice to see a few familiar faces. Brian F. O'Byrne (Father Flynn in the original stage version of Doubt) is Joseph Fiennes' AA sponsor on FlashForward. Dominic Monaghan is also slated to appear in the ABC drama, so it'll be a mini-Lost reunion there with Sonya Walger (Desmond's Penny). Glee stars Jessalyn Gilsig (Claire's biological mom on Heroes) in a totally different role.
Julie Bowen (Sarah from Lost) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Leaf Coneybear on The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) are in the new hit comedy Modern Family. Sherri Shepherd's sitcom features Kate Reinders (Wicked's Glinda) as the "quiz-ho", a sandwich maker impregnated by Sherri's husband. It also stars Kali Rocha (Halfrek from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. More people might remember her as the flight attendant who wouldn't let Ben Stiller onto the plane in Meet the Parents and its sequel.) When Dollhouse premiered last year, it was great to see Amy Acker (Fred on Angel). This season we have Alexis Denisof (Alyson Hannigan's hubby who played Wesley on Buffy and Angel) as a United States Senator. Of course, I'm waiting for Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet on Lost) on the remake of V next month.

I am in TV heaven. Happy viewing and celebrity watching!
