Dawn Olivieri must be doing something right to earn such doubly great casting fortune.

Last week, the actress was killed off the train wreck that is Heroes, as her character of Lydia took a bullet to the chest. Today, meanwhile, she's landed a role on one of TV's hottest shows:

It's safe to say I disagree:


I agree with foxmodly, Heroes has been really good this season and I love tonight's episode.


"Train wreck?" Heroes has been terrific. Tonight's episode was one of the best in recent memory. But Heroes bashing has become a cottage industry.
