  2. Chris says:

    I miss Awake but I’m glad for Laura Allen.

  3. Christie says:

    I miss Awake & The 4400. I wonder when this show starts.

  4. Xsikal says:

    I liked her in Awake, but Terriers was fantastic.

  5. Raechel Bosquez says:

    I was gonna try this show but not that she has been added you can count me out. I think she is a horrible actress.

  6. darcywilson says:

    Call it cancelled. I’m not saying it’s because of her, but everything she’s in s prematurely cancelled.

    This sounds a lot like Desperate Housewives…don’t know how to feel about that

    • Rip off. Nothing will ever be like Desperate Housewives <3 It's not Marc Cherry. Nor it's labeled as a "comedy". Also, it's based on a book by a really arrogant woman who happens to be on a multi-author blog I follow. Last, but not least, it's NBC, so, we can't trust it'll be around for long.

  8. It's Ashley!!!! says:

    Anybody remember her from Nickelodeon’s teen soap “Fifteen”?

  9. Dean says:

    I love her! Miss Awake.

  10. Dagmara says:

    I’ll be watching just for Martin Henderson

  11. Jo says:

    All the Laura haters are Greenlee fans.

  12. KimK says:

    I think Laura is gorgeous and I would watch her read the phonebook. You haters are just weirdo All My Children fans who can distinguish television characters from real life. Laura is fabulous!

    • Christie says:

      I don’t think the people who think Laura is a poor actress are AMC or Greenlee fans. She just can’t act. Simple fact.

    • Catherine says:

      You are absolutely right KimK! Laura is a fantastic actress, and an amazing woman in real life. I have the pleasure of knowing her personally.

    Boy, Terriers was brilliant.

    Laura is a wonderful actress with unlimited talent and range.
