Cheers: Lost & Laws to the Rescue

Cheers to the Rescue Me crew for keeping their careers simmering. Andrea Roth was suitably creepy as Juliet's island therapist on Lost, and John Scurti (sans his firefighter 'stache) was surprisingly convincing as a no-nonsense judge on Law & Order. Meanwhile, James McCaffrey sizzles as Julianna Margulies' P.I. paramour on exec producer Denis Leary's new Fox drama Canterbury's Law. With the news that the strike may have pushed Rescue's traditional summer season back until next March, these side gigs could be fans' only lifelines.

For more on Lost, check out the new Cheers & Jeers vodcast.

Andrea Roth was also on on Criminal Minds not too long ago. I love seeing her on anything- but I want Rescue Me back much sooner than next March!

Guess the C+J guy isn't into SciFi.
How about Dean Winters paramedic on The Sarah Connor Chronicles?

It's true, I'm not a sci-fi guy, but I did see Dean Winters on Sarah Connor. Since he's not on Rescue Me anymore, though, I didn't include him.

A summer without Rescue Me will make for a summer of me not having any reason to watch FX.

Can someone tell me why 100 days of a strike could delay a summer series (which wasn't due to go into production until January 08) back 9 months to March of 09???

this summer...No Rescue Me,Damages, Entourage? I'm not even sure about Big Love. It's going to be a long summer.

I usually agree with these, but this one is pretty off base. Most of the guest stars on LOST tend to be pretty good, but Roth came of as pretty wooden - I just didn't buy that character.

Really didn't work for me, one of the few low points in what is probably the show's strongest season so far.

John Scurti was not credited on-IMDB after the initial airing-thanks!

Re why the new season of Rescue Me won't start until March 2009:

I haven't spoken with Denis Leary about this, but my guess is that the delay is the result of the cumulative effect of pushing back the start dates for FX's other hit series. The start of the next (and last) season of The Shield (which was filmed, but without all of the episodes being edited by creator Shawn Ryan, before the strike) has been pushed back to September 2008 because they didn't want it airing during the Olympics (which start 8/8/08).

Since FX appears to like airing its hit shows sequentially (have one series finish its season before the next one starts), rather than at the same time, the delay in starting The Shield pushed back when the new seasons of the other hit series (Damages, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me), which hadn't started filming pre-strike, would start. The Shield's season will probably finish in December 2008, another series probably will run January-February 2009, and then Rescue Me will take over in March 2009.

Anyway! Who's up for skin cancer, roasting your nuts off and lots of beached whales (and I don't mean the ones who live in the ocean)? Summer weather...it's over-rated.

I must disagree. I thought she looked absolutely horrible on Lost. What was up with the eyebrows? She looked perpetually surprised! I think she looks absolutely beautiful on Rescue Me. What the heck happened?
