Dude, Ellen's a Cylon!

Okay, she's not. She's a Viper pilot. But it's still Samantha Ferris, who plays Ellen on Supernatural, in the uniform.

Yep, I'm catching up on Battlestar Galactica. I had fallen behind by about a half-dozen episodes, so I thought I'd finish off Season Three. Next season, as we all know by now, will be this show's last, and the showrunners promise a wrapup of the storylines, and possibly a spinoff prequel.

In the meantime, I'm noticing fandom collisions. Aside from Samantha Ferris, there's Kandyse McClure, who plays Dualla (aka Mrs. Apollo). She played Annie, Joshua's doomed love interest, in two episodes of Season Two of Dark Angel. And Nickie Klyne, Callie on Battlestar, was Fixit in another Season Two Dark Angel episode. Grace Park (Sharon), also did a brief turn as a transgenic on Dark Angel. Maybe she's typecast as a genetically engineered person? That could really limit an actor's career. to find out what the heck is up with Starbuck.
