      • Its my opnion that Summer Glau has had too many chances on TV and never resonated. She does not need to be back on.

        • she resonated, just talk to anyone who has watched firefly or the sarah connor chronicles and they will agree with me

          • I liked Summer Glau in Firefly and Sarah Connor and Dollhouse and Alphas… but let’s face it, there’s not a lot of evidence that she can play a character who ISN’T emotionally stunted!

          • so. sam jackson cant play a character who isnt an angry black man and nobody minds, why cant the same situation apply here

          • ‘so. sam jackson cant play a character who isnt an angry black man and nobody minds’

            Alan, my man! You hit the nail on the head! Add Keanu Reeves to that as well. But Summer can actually portray a wide range of emotions. The writers just don’t see her as anything more than ‘River Tam’ which is like the best character for them. And she has good taste in tv which makes her take up roles mostly in the sci-fi genre. She’s a goddess imho.

            Comment by The Only Truth – November 25, 2012 08:17 AM PDT  
          • I’ve watched and liked those shows but I don’t agree with you.

            Comment by Wrstlgirl – November 25, 2012 01:54 PM PDT  
          • I agree, Alan.

            Although, I prefer the soft Summer (a la River) to the hard Summer. In Firefly, she may have been damages but she still portrayed an array of emotions very well.

          • @wrstgirl: ‘personal insults are so immature’ says the girl who gagged over someone else wanting their favorite actor to return to tv. We’re having this conversation because some people don’t recognize talent if it slaps them in the face.

  • Paget Brewster? Really? So that she can ruin another show by repeatedly leaving it and than returning?

    Comment by Patrick Maloney – November 24, 2012 05:37 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Fact Check: She didn’t choose to leave the show the first time. CBS fired AJ Cook and Paget Brewster during Season 6. When both a ratings drop and a fan outcry showed the poor nature of the decision, they were forced back because of unfulfilled contracts since CBS wanted to save the show. Therefore, Paget Brewster chose not to renew when renegotiations occurred the following season because of CBS’ unfair treatment – a recurring theme for that network. So no, she did not ruin the show, CBS ruined their own.

        Comment by Wrstlgirl – November 24, 2012 06:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • The only reason she didn’t fight it was BECAUSE of the fans. But fans don’t expect her to stay in a place where they fired her and then forced her back. It’s her life and she deserves free will. The only thing we deserve is to be happy for her. Otherwise, it’s selfish.

      • Fact check: the show is hardly ruined without Prentiss. I hardly remember she was there. It’s just the same as always. It’s not better, but it’s hardly worse.

        Comment by Barbie Furtado – November 24, 2012 07:55 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I never said CM was ruined. Just replying to the original comment or ruining the show. Certainly the show can survive without her. CBS just hurt themselves with their poor decisions.

          Comment by Meg – November 24, 2012 08:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • That’s my point: CBS didn’t. When they realized the mess they’d put themselves into, they brought both actresses back. That was a wise and mature decision on their part. That was AMAZING of CBS. And, look at them, the show is one of their highest rated shows (better demo than NCIS:LA) in a time of crisis! Paget leaving hasn’t affected the ratings, like when AJ Cook had left with her. And, ultimately, it was her decision to leave this time, it wasn’t CBS’s. CBS *did* mess up once, but they retracted it. They were awesome. And because of them, we have JJ back. And her void was much, much harder to fill than Prentiss’!

            Comment by Barbie Furtado – November 24, 2012 09:14 AM PDT  
          • Barbie, when you say that Paget Brewster leaving CM did not hurt the ratings, you are wrong. Criminal Minds is down ~21% from last fall, a larger drop than all other CBS dramas except for Blue Bloods (-26%), The Mentalist (-31%), and Hawaii Five-0 (-39%).

            Comment by nick1372 – November 24, 2012 08:17 PM PDT  
          • And lets be real here. The Mentalist’s drop is due to the shift to Sundays and H50 is down because people are slowly starting to realize that the show is awful. CM, for all intents and purposes, is down due to the firing of Paget.

            Comment by TheColdTruth – November 25, 2012 12:18 AM PDT

        • Criminal Minds has done just fine with multiple cast changes. All I can say for certain is that *I* am not quite as excited to watch the show when Prentiss isn’t there. I still watch for the most part, however.

    • I agree with you that she can act, but she will bail on any show as soon as her contract is up and make everyone on set miserable until she is gone. Any show considering her is better off casting someone else than having to deal with her drama.

    • I disagree. CHARMED and BEVERLY HILLS 90210 are literally my two favorite shows EVER, and I think both shows got waaaay better after she left. I mean, both Brenda and Prue were cool, but Valerie was a way richer character, and when she came to 90210 the show got much more exciting, and Paige? Paige was ALL love! She was funny and kind and a breath of fresh air! Prue was bitchy, mostly arrogant! When Paige arrived, the CHARMED got this new twist that it needed at that time. At some point, Paige was actually my favorite character (they all were except for Prue at some point!).

  • So glad to see Robin Weigert on the list. It’s great to see glimpses of her on Sons again this season, but it’s reminded me how thoroughly enjoyable she was on Deadwood and should be doing something in that capacity again.

    Allison Janney for sure. I tried to tolerate Mr Sunshine for a while just to watch her. Hope she finds something good soon!

  • I would live to see Gillian Anderson,Amber Tamblyn, and Kristen Bell!

    • Kristin Bell will be continuing in House of Lies, when the second season starts. I’m assuming in January when Shameless comes back since I think they’re paired on Sunday nights, no?

    • KB is still on TV. But what we NEED from her (or really from WB) is the Veronica Mars movie! WB needs to just step up and either make it themselves or release the rights to her already and to stop acting like babies, they are afraid to make it because they don’t know if it well sell and they are afraid to release the rights just in case it sells and then they look foolish. Just pick a risk already and stand up and make a decision before it too late and you REALLY look foolish!

  • Missing Paget Brewster, terribly; hope she makes a return to Criminal Minds where she belongs. I will accept her as a recurring character-something better than nothing.

  • carla gugino would be a great addition on the good wife imo, also someone needs to give something to andrea parker.

  • I definitely want Janel Moloney, Lizzy Caplan, and Leslie Grossman back on TV! All were great on their respective series.

    • lizze caplan should be in shield, her character was perfectly set up for the show at the end of item 47

    • Just so you know, Leslie Grossman had a scene in episode 3 of the Neighbors and it’s pretty hilarious (you need to see the entire episode to understand it though). It’s my favourite episode of the show.

  • Lizzy Caplan, Tania Raymonde, Traylor Howard, Alona Tal, Kristin Chenoweth, Rebecca Mader, Courtney Ford

    • Alona Tal is on CW’s midseason show – Cult. Can’t wait to see her again.

    • Yes to Traylor Howard!

  • I love Gillian Anderson but its been so long she stars on a US primetime show…..

  • Anna Friel is awesome. She was great on “Pushing Daisies”.

    Phylicia Rashad is on a show. She is part of the cast of the upcoming “Do No Harm” on NBC

  • Billie Piper was so amazing in The Secret Diary of a call girl! I just adored her in every way as Belle! <3

    Jessalyn Gilsig, I knew her from my former beloved Boston Public!

    Now, I was thinking about this yesterday! Who I'd like to see back on tv!

    Eliza Dushku, people!!! Been too long!

    Now, anyone ever watched She Spies? No, right! Pretty sure my mom and I were the only people in the planet. But the other day Kristen Miller was guest starring in a show, and I remembered how much I loved her.

    Sherry Stringfield. Dr. Susan Chandler from ER! Saw her just the other day somewhere, too. She looked totally different.

  • There are people I’d like to see back, but then I imagine I don’t think they could ever be another character in my mind. Like… Patricia Arquette will be forever Allison Dubois…

    • Totally agree. Can we just get Medium back then?

      Comment by tripoli – November 24, 2012 03:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yeah, Paget Brewster! I miss Alisson Janney on the list.
