  • I love Carly Pope! I still don’t have any desire to watch this Tomorrow People show, but maybe I’ll go get out the Popular DVDs and do a rewatch.

  • Wasn’t Ryan Murphy the same guy that did Popular before he created shows like Glee and American Horror Story?

  • Okay, I guess I’ll have to watch now. I had the biggest crush on Carly Pope when I was in HS. It sucks that she disappeared into oblivion after Popular and only did small budget films made in Canada.

    • Popular gave us Carly, Leslie Bibb, Sara Rue, Chris Gorham, Wentworth Miller, Leslie Grossman; there were all terrific. I can’t believe Popular was 1999, wow.
