Chris Heyderthal AGAIN? Is there any sci fi/fantasy show he's not in? I love him as an actor but goodness me, he is something of a regular in these things.

Alan Ball better not kill off Chris Meloni's character Roman. I have been looking forward to having him on the show long term.


I really hope Bill and Eric don't kill Christopher Meloni's character. :(
