My Next New Show

Assuming it premieres before Rob Thomas’s reset of Cupid: Castle, starring my one, if not quite my only, Nathan Fillion:

Not having read anything but the basic plot synopsis–mystery novelist helps chick detective solve crime–I actually assumed it was going to be a bit more of a drama. Reclusive mystery novelist, scary-smart, pushed reluctantly into helping because it’s his duty … oh hells no. A comedy with serious tones more along the lines of Bones, by the looks of it, which is A-OK with me (Bones having, thank the television gods, picked up quite a bit since its dismal season premiere). And it looks to be a lot more fun than Drive, which, sadly, isn’t saying much. This could be Fillion’s winner. Still a shame that his wittier, less routine work on Firefly went so under-appreciated, but here’s hoping this one takes off. As with David Boreanaz on Bones, it’ll be a real pleasure to see the Whedon-alum “good bad boys” become “bad good boys.”

Via Whedonesque.

  4. Bones has gone all chick sucky with the psychology crap.

    Don’t they know why we watch? In my house we all used to chant “The worms crawl in, the worns crawl out”, when the obligatory gooey, putrid, maggot-infested corpses were displayed.

    Good luck to Fillion, but….where’s Morena Baccarin these days?

  5. Anna~ Guest starring on Numb3rs, for one thing. With a lot less hair. She was in a recent episode called “Blowback.” Really not liking her new hairdo. Do they fug hair, Anwyn?
