On Syfy's Defiance, she runs a brothel. Pardon my obvious sexism, but I'm guessing it's a very successful brothel. Mia Kirshner cut her acting teeth in a whole slew of mostly forgettable minor roles, but it was her wicked transformation as the terrorist-for-hire in Fox TV's 24 program that propelled her career into new heights. With her plum appearance as a regular on Defiance, she's finally reaping the benefits of her perseverance. Ms. Kirschner was born on this day back in 1975.…Continue

I think you can always judge a franchise based in part on the charisma of its lead. Shatner, Browder, and even Boxleitner come to mind, and one name I'd definitely add to that list is Gil Gerard. In the 80's, he was the face of televised science fiction as he headlined the latest incarnation of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century for NBC. Gerard has lead a relatively quiet life since that time (though he might feel differently), but, if you get the chance, toss in the DVDs sometime this week to honor the man's contribution to science fiction. I think you'll be surprised how well it all holds up, thanks to his capable shoulders!
Gerard was born on this day back in 1943.…Continue

At best, it's a cult diversion -- essentially, it features three hot chicks fighting robots hell-bent on destroying what's left of mankind in the year 2525 -- full of cheese and high camp. Still, they all go about it with such intensity, it's hard not to be drawn into the ruckus. Its first episode, "Quest for Firepower," premiered on this day back in the year 2000.…Continue

Actress Karina Lombard is a familiar face in television who continues to turn in great performances in supporting positions. Not long ago, she enjoyed terrific exposure as a regular in USA Networks' The 4400. She was born on this day in 1969.Continue

The late, great DeForest Kelley gave such a genius portrayal to the ship's physician, Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy. In STAR TREK's trinity relationship -- the one shared between Kirk's bravado, Spock's logic, and him -- McCoy was always the "heart" of any situation. He always wanted the crew to do what was best morally for those around him and them. TOS is filled with great moments of debate, but perhaps in the much-maligned Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, the country doctor really gave his best performance: at the beginning, he was the joyous soul sitting with his friends around a campfire, and, near the film's conclusion, he was the tortured soul who had to let his father die from an illness with no…Continue
