"Acting isn't everything it's cracked up to be, nor is production in general. You have to have the temperament and be very used to long hours for little pay."

"Cool. I once acted with Sir Ian McKellan, and that was much more memorable. So was the call from Sir Patrick. Too bad I couldn't find the record button on my machine."

"No worries. It is a good show, even though I'm not usually a Superman/Supergirl fan. I like the dark, brooding ones, like Dark Night and Spiderman."

"The show is good, but I would argue that it is not Sci-Fi, but superhero fantasy, instead. There is no underlying science to build from or extrapolate into a new future."

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
