When asked about starring with with Trek legend William Shatner in American Psycho 2 back in 2002, the Friends With Benefits star revealed that she's a "massive Trekkie" despite not getting into the epic sci-fi series until her late teens.

"I got into it later than most people. But let's not talk about it in the past tense. I'm still a Star Trek fan. You never stop being one," she says.

Everything Geeky: Sci-Fi Shows You May Have Missed

November 4th, 2009 2:50pm EST
V
After watching the premiere of "V" last night, I was starting to wonder if Sci-Fi is going to make a real comeback into the spotlight. Let's face it, the popularity of this genre has risen in the past few years. It is no longer just the diehard Trekkies that care about Spock and Kirk, but the newcomers swarming after J.J. Abrams' reboot.

With shows like "Lost" and "Heroes" gaining notice on major television networks and the critical acclaim of "Battlestar Galactica," the stereotypes of typical "sci-fi nerds" is starting to wear off. In its place are people who never cared about phasers ...

Leave Them Hanging: Favorite TV Cliffhangers

April 2nd, 2008 2:00pm EDT
Lost
Television is a medium that thrives on manipulating audiences into tuning in, and no narrative device is more effective at accomplishing that task than the cliffhanger. With the end of the 2007-08 season rapidly approaching and new cliffhangers waiting in the wings, we have decided to celebrate our favorites from years past.

5) The Simpsons: "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"

The Cliffhanger: It didn't provoke quite the fervor of the "Dallas" storyline that it parodied, but this two-part episode did warrant a special "America's Most Wanted" and was discussed often during the summer of 19...

George Michael
Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) has had a rough couple of weeks. He was demoted at work, broke up with Taylor (Natasha Henstridge), and effectively pushed away nearly everyone else who was close to him.

Enter George Michael.

Lawyers get star struck too

George has oft-appeared in Eli's past visions, usually leading Eli to make ethical (if somewhat crazy) choices. So it is understa...
