Did anyone else catch the premiere episode last night? It kicks some serious butt:

Lots of action and humor and colorful characters. If there's any justice, Piper Perabo is about to become a very big star in the best tv female role since Mary McCormack's feisty federal marshal in "In Plain Sight".

SHILL!

I'm sure Peter has. A few times. Recording it on multiple devices, just so that he can make sure.

I cannot stand Perabo in anything; much like Matthew Modine or Teri Garr, I keep fighting the urge to smack them in the face, so I'll pass...

Truth be told, I didn't think much of her in her early years, especially in dreck like "Coyote Ugly" where she came off like a Leelee Sobieski clone. But over time she's developed timing and control and some style and a confidence that the camera will "get" the performance.

And, hey, ya gotta admit that Teri Garr had some knockout knockers back in her prime!
