That's one lizard that can eat my pet rat anytime....

Morena Baccarin is yummy. I mean, just look at her up there, being all yummy and looking all like “Hi Seth, don’t you think I’m yummy?” Yes, Morena, I do.


Anyway, since playing the yummy hooker-in-space on “Firefly,” she’s been noticeably absent from my TV universe (even though, according to her IMDb page, she’s actually done quite a bit of work). But she’s hoping to come back soon, as ABC has cast her as one of the leads in its pilot remake of “V.” Some of you may recall the two excellent 1980s miniseries (and the not-so-excellent TV spin-off) about lizard-aliens coming to Earth to steel all our water, if only the Beastmaster would let them. Well, Baccarin is set to play their leader (whose name has been changed from Dianna to Anna, which is not a change I approve of).

Scott Wolf has also signed on, and he’ll play a TV reporter who helps the Visitor aliens propagandize. But I mean, really. If Baccarin walks off a ship, aren’t we weak mortals going to do whatever the Visitors want, without the need for propaganda?

Yes. Yes we are. Whatever they want.

…I’ll be in my bunk.
