In our second episode, we go over some of the latest TV news like the CW ordering a full season of 90210, Diane Ruggerio working with Rob Thomas again on Cupid, and the latest in casting news. Then we delve into our topic of the week which is a discussion of when we have trouble seeing some of our favorite actors in new roles. Our most recent example being Joshua Jackson and how hard it is to separate his new character on Fringe, Peter Bishop, from his Dawson's Creek persona, Pacey Witter. We talk about several other examples such as Alyson Hannigan, David Boreanaz, Emily VanCamp, Hugh Laurie, Jason Dohring, etc. We explore several other aspects of the topic as well. Finally, we finish up with a primetime wrap-up from last week touching on the return of The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother as well as our new found love for Privileged and our immediate dismissal of Knight Rider. Other shows in our talk include The Emmys, Heroes, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Prison Break, The Mentalist, House, Bones, and My Name is Earl.
