The iZombie episode “Cape Town” gave Liv the opportunity to embrace her inner superhero. This article contains spoilers so if you haven’t seen the episode, please do not continue reading.

bell-zombie-social-701b3A Veronica Mars/iZombie Crossover?  Hardly. But it has been announced that Actress Kristen Bell who played the spunky and beloved teenage detective on the prematurely cancelled series Veronica Mars will lend her voice talents on iZombie.

Kristen Bell will provide her voice in the Season 2, Episode 11 titled “Fifty Shades of Grey Matter” involving a murdered librarian who also writes erotic.

Fans of Kristen Bell know that in addition to providing narration to scenes of Veronica Mars, she also did the narration for six seasons on Gossip Girl.

Several former Veronica Mars have already appeared on iZombie : Ryan Hansen, Percy Daggs III, David Starzyk and Adam Rose.

Although Kristen Bell is not actually appearing on iZombie, it will be good to hear her on the show.

Bell’s episode is scheduled to air on January 26, 2015.

A Warm Birthday Greeting to Terri Garber

I have been a fan of actress Terri Garber since I first seen her in the television miniseries North and South.  As Ashton Main, she is the Scarlett O’ Hara of television:

Although North and South will forever remain my favorite project of Terri’s, she’s had other roles. She was Leslie Carrington on Dynasty:

After Dynasty, Terri Garber made the guest appearances rounds on shows like Murder She Wrote, Quantum Leap and Midnight Caller.  She also had a few soap opera roles on Texas (where she made her acting debut as Allison Linden), Santa Barbara as Suzanne Collier, General Hospital as Victoria Parker and As the World Turns as Iris Dumbrowksi .

In addition to being a talented actress, Terri Garber is a loving wife, mother, sister and daughter. I thank Terri for the years of enjoyment she has given me and my family. When I think of Ashton and North and South, I remember fondly my mom and I watching the television adaptation of John Jakes’ novel on Sunday, November 3, 1985.

I wish you a Very Happy Birthday Terri, I hope you are blessed with health and happiness.

Happy 94th Birthday Marvel Comics King Stan Lee

imagesThe comic book geeks of the world owe a big debt of gratitude to Stan Lee.  If it wasn’t for his imagination and talent, we would have never had known Spiderman, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four and X-Men to name a few. Lee is the co-creator of these superheroes and comic book icons, along with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. He is basically the father of Marvel.

Stan Lee was born Stanley Martin Lieber on December 28, 1922 in New York City.  Young Stanley Lieber got his start working at Timely Comics, which was a part of Pulp Magazine, as an assistant in 1939.   By the 1960s, Timely Comics would become Marvel.  His first entry into comics was for Captain America which he wrote under the pen name Stan Lee. Stanley Lieber legally adopted the moniker Stan Lee.

As Stan Lee, his vision spanned a family of superheroes and generations of fans for his creations. I can’t imagine what comics would be like without Peter Parker/Spiderman (my personal favorite). Although I can’t speak for everyone, I’m sure there are many people who’s first introduction into the world of comics was with one of Lee’s characters.

So on this your 94rd birthday, I salute you Stan Lee and thank you for your contributions

Which TV Characters Would You Invite To Your Christmas Dinner?

The holidays are here. Which means shopping and preparing holiday meals for family and friends.  If you could invite any television characters over to share holiday meal with you and your family, who would it be?

The 100?

Would you like the characters from The 100? Claire, Bellamy, Kane and Jaha could vie over who gets the turkey drumstick.  Wonder what kind of table manners The Grounders would have?

iZombie?

Liv, Ravi, Clive, Major, Blaine and Peyton would be an interesting bunch of dinner guests.  But Liv would need to prepare her own “brain turkey”.

Jane The Virgin?

The Villanuevas, Rafael, Rogelio and Petra would be a lively group. But just don’t save turkey.

As there isn’t a new Supernatural episode this week due to Thanksgiving, I thought about what it would be like if we saw Sam and Dean Winchester celebrated the holiday.

The closest Sam ever had to a real Thanksgiving was the time he went to a classmate’s house when he was eleven.

Although I can’t for every viewer, I know I would enjoy seeing the Winchesters take a day off and sit down for a holiday meal. They could decorate the Men of Letters bunker in holiday motif.

It would be hilarious seeing Dean wearing a ‘Kiss the Cook’ apron while cooking the turkey. We already know from the Season 8 episode “Trial and Error” that Dean can cook steaks. Sam could toss the salad. Who knows more about salads than Sam!

The guest list would include Castiel, Claire, Jody Mills, Alex, Sheriff Donna and Doug (they’re dating now). And of course, Crowley would pop in. At least he’d bring a good vintage to go with the meal.

Sam would insist on going around the table and having every one day what they were thankful for while Dean would complain “This is stupid”.

Jody would be grateful that she has a chance to have a family again with Alex. Donna and Doug would say something sappy about finding each other. Castiel would give a speech about the Winchesters being the closest thing he’s ever had to a family. “I don’t do prayer but I’m grateful for all the souls I’ve claimed for Hell” would be Crowley’s response. Sam would talk about how grateful he is to have Dean as a brother.

And we the fans of Supernatural are grateful for Sam and Dean Winchester being a part of our lives for eleven seasons.
