I just saw an episode of CSI Las Vegas, and she was a guest star. I was so surprised to see her name at the beginning of the show that it took me a second to recognise her name. Then I did a double take, wondering 'what is she doing as a guest star on an American crime drama?

She had a smallish part - I guess hers was the biggest 'guest' role - but boy, can she act! I haven't seen her in anything else beside AoGG, and I was really impressed by her. Her role (as the sister of a creepy serial killer) could have been a throw-away, an exercise in melodrama, or (considering the weird twists in the plot) a joke; but with her treatment of the character, was really moving and well-done.

Anyone else see it?

She's been the main guest star on an episode of Law and Order a couple of years ago as well.

She was very good, but I actually didn't like that episode of CSI. It was very unfocused.

Yeah, that was kind of a weird episode. I'm not a regular TV watcher, and I've only seen CSI about four times, so I don't really know what to expect from it.

It was just that there was no real "mystery" they were trying to solve. It was solved in the first ten minutes, and the rest of the episode was just messing around without a real point or driving force.

I was disappointed, because I normally like CSI.

I saw a clip from a TV movie she did last year I guess, Open Heart, and it looks really good too. I am just such a fan of Megan.

Then again, anyone could act alongside the characters in CSI and look like a good actor in comparison. Well, CSI Miami, anyhow. I've seen a couple of the other versions and they're not quite as bad, I guess. I'm not sure if I've seen CSI Las Vegas.

But I really like Megan Follows too.

i woke up at around 4:45 am the other day and turned on the TV. i happened on the Littlest Hobo. two things happened: I bawled myself into disgrace during the theme sequence; and second, Megan Follows and the WHOLE FOLLOWS CLAN were guest starring as a family camping in the woods. this was PRE-AoGG. the dog (did everyone know his name was London in real life - what a great name) saves her from an earthquake.
