TV celebs wielding big sabers

Do they cook? Not sure. Are they Jedi Knights? Errrrr, maybe? So what's the deal with Celebrity Jedi Chefs? We wish we knew. In their own words, they're [mostly] TV actors who "do the same sorts of things that 'normal' Jedi do, but [they] also cook." There are 216 of them, and most have appeared on buzzy sci-fi shows, including Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica. We're not...

Nothin' but 'cookie' love - VIDEO

Believe it or not, the image to the right does not come from Sci Fi Channel or Lost. It doesn't take place in a spaceship nor time machine, and the screaming woman is neither under Cylon attack or enduring the brain-rattle of a jump through the time/space continuum. In fact, her name is Kathreya. "Kat" - as she is better known - was a contestant the ninth season of the Big Brother UK, and she's...

Bring back Crazy Rosie the Womanchild! - VIDEO

Rosie O'Donnell - last seen crushing her own dream of reviving the variety show with a very special disaster (you guys rehearsed this?) - has moved on. She's done stand-up, talk shows, books, cruises, movies, Broadway, and everything in between (including an S&M movie). The next act in her windy career trajectory, however? The Serious Issue Made-For-TV Movie. As Dr. Maureen Brennan, Rosie...

Seven people we'd like to see on Dancing With The Stars - VIDEO

Well, it's official. Yesterday, ABC announced their new line-up for the eighth season (!) of Dancing With The Stars. And, as usual, the names chosen range from weird to ... even weirder (really, David Alan Grier?). Not that we necessarily disagree with the producers' choices, but we'd like to take a moment to suggest seven potential choices of people we believe to be fully primed for a spot on the...

The comedic stylings of Sayid Jarrah! - VIDEO

Even if we've gone way beyond life on the island - with the plots literally weaving through space, time, and place - there was surely a moment when the characters on Lost got tired of swimming and putt-putt. Amid destruction and death, even the survivors of Oceanic 815 surely needed a laugh now and then, which gave Sayid - who apparently moonlights as a stand-up comic when not being awesome with...

Lost & Found - the Lost spin-off of our dreams

Call us crazy, but wouldn't it be rad if Lindelof and Cuse, the bigwigs behind Lost, had a little fun in light of the superspeed at which we're plowing through the final two seasons of the show? Specifically, would it not be absolutely amazing if one of the characters from Lost left the island for greener pastures, and those greener pastures were a sitcom? Picture it: Rose Henderson (L. Scott...

Why does that reality show contestant look so familiar? - VIDEO

Just when you thought everyone you knew, ever, had endured their 15 minutes on some reality show, you've been hoodwinked. It's no longer just the lady in accounts payable who you spotted on Cheaters or your brother's friend whose family appeared on Wife Swap. These days, it's low-profile celebs, too, who are seeking a 16th minute, and no longer exclusively via humiliation on VH1....

Chic-a-go-go, that toddlin' cable access show - VIDEO

We may not live in Chicago, but we know the value of a legendary public access show when we see it. That being said, Chi-town's already-legendary homegrown variety show Chic-a-go-go -- on the air since 1996 -- seems to fit the bill, at least according to the footage we've seen online. According to the astounding amount of nostalgic praise littered throughout the web, the fan favorite is a dizzying...

Before Idol, Von Smith was a YouTube sensation - VIDEO

Well, we're not through to Hollywood just yet, as the American Idol auditions keep on keepin' on. Indeed, as promised by the show's producers, we're not seeing as many crazies as we have in years past. However, it's safe to say that the pool of eccentric Idol wannabes has been anything but left on the cutting room floor. That's not going to happen anytime soon. In terms of memorable performances...

Six characters from other shows whom we wish were Cylons - VIDEO

Battlestar Galactica is premiering! Did you know that? BSG is starting again. Ten eps left. Best show ever. Can. Not. Wait. Especially because we need to know the identity of the final Cylon! Look, we're so crazy excited for the season premiere that the only thing we could do to keep ourselves from going a'spoiler-hunting was to create a wishlist. Below are six characters from other shows...
