I watch a handful of shows: Big Bang Theory, Castle, Dexter, Dollhouse, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother. (and as of tonight, Stargate:Universe)
This fall season so far, at least one character—recurring, regular or sporadic—from every single one of these shows has shown up for a part in one of the other shows.
It’s like Hollywood has begun recycling actors and actresses from the meager sample of 6 shows that I watch and re-use them across the same sample of shows. It’s utterly confusing when, like me, you catch up to two-three weeks of having missed the shows, all in one or two sittings.
First time it happened, I was like, “huh, funny”. Second time: “Wow, weird.” Third time: “Okay that’s just a freaky series of coincidences…” Fourth time: “STOP DOING THIS TO ME, HOLLYWOOD.”
Yes, I know it’s just because these actors and actresses are hot button items right now, but geeze… come on!
