If you don't know her as vampire Pam from HBO's "True Blood," you may recognize Kristin Bauer from "Dark Angel", "JAG" or from the classic "Seinfeld" episode where she played Jerry's "Man Hands" girlfriend, Gillian.

Kristin recently talked to Starpulse about her passionate advocacy for animal welfare, as well as her role as a vampire. She has worked with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Tails for Whales campaign, which raises awareness about the threats facing whales and their habitats, including commercial whaling and climate change.

TV Shows On The Verge Of Jumping The Shark

July 15th, 2009 11:23am EDT
24
The concept of 'jumping the shark' is a fatal one for many involved in television. It all began in the tragic episode of 'Happy Days' in which iconic character, The Fonz, literally jumps over a shark, thus placing a death toll on the rest of the series. Decades later, some TV writers have playfully used the term in decidedly ironic tones, both 'The X-Files' and 'Supernatural' have episodes titled 'Jump the Shark' (Note: a portion of 'Supernatural's' crew are 'X-Files' alum) that tiptoe the line of throwing a series into oblivion.

We will have a few current TV shows that we believe ar...

Back from the Dead: TV Shows That Survived Cancellation

May 8th, 2008 8:22am EDT
Jericho
Shows are canceled all the time. This time the victim was "Men In Trees," a show that jumped timeslots, disappeared for months at a time, and was finally put out of its misery by ABC. It wasn't exactly a surprise the network canceled it. Who knew it was still on? (Fans can catch the final few episodes when it airs again beginning May 28.)

But what doesn't happen all the time is second chances. Once a television show is canceled (a.k.a. axed, yanked, cut, punted, escorted off the premises, etc.) by its network, it ceases to exist. Normally, that is the case...but not always. After al...

Combining the best elements of JAG and CSI, the CBS crime series NCIS focuses on an elite, independent unit of the U.S. Navy, which, in its pursuit of military-related criminal investigations, was answerable to no higher authority -- and thus, of course, was utterly impartial and incorruptible. Season 3 is now on DVD. Also on DVD: season 1 of The Drew Carey Show, The Odd Couple, One Day At A Time, WKRP In Cincinnati; and Kidnapped the complete series.
