I just watched tonight's episode of Desperate Housewives (called There won't be trumpets). It's the one where Mrs Solis the elder wakes up from her coma, slips on a wet hospital floor, falls down a flight of steps and dies with her daughter-in-law's secret unrevealed. I thought the nurse looking after Mrs Solis looked really familiar, and then I realised - she's the actress who played Buffy's college room mate in Season 4; the snoring Celine Dion fan who turns out to be a demon in disguise.

I'd be wary of the demonic possibilties of any Celine Dion fan.... As for desperate Housewives, I never seem to have time to watch it.

I LOVED Cathy! She was a really acurate depiction of a college dorm kid. Less blood rituals though usually.

Maybe she was just masquerading as Nurse Heidel on Housewives and WILLED Mrs Solis Snr. down the stairs!

onscreen:Housewives is very watchable, but for me it's no must-see. Intrepid Journeys, on at the same time, is at least as interesting.

nigel: yeah, apart from the fact that she was an actual demon, Cathy did seem like your run-of-the-mill irritating room-mate.

wicked: Yeah, too much Celine Dion could do that to a person.
