Watching KyleXY now.

So far, there's Cory Monteith, who was in Wendigo, I think.

Guy Bee directed an episode in Season One.

Season 2 Episode 7 is called "Free to Be You and Me."

And Martin Cummins aka Ames White in Dark Angel (coincidentally the other half of the Alec/Ames pairing fic I just read after not having read long fic in ages) was in several episodes.

And not so much a Jensen connection, but even though the music in Kyle XY mostly sucks, they just played a song that was also in Bones and that I have in my Bones soundtrack folder.

Now I'm reminded of Latter Days, about all the things that look like random dots up close but make a bigger picture when you step away.

Gay Steampunk Angel Soul Pirates... yeah.

Cool, you will have to tell me what you think of it in the end. I've looked at it a couple times but didn't know anyone who had watched it. :)

Hee, hee, I associate so much back to anything even remotely Jensen related now! Drives my hubby nuts! His standard response is...'and why would I can if this random actor was in an episode of (insert Jensen show).' My standard response...''cause Jensen was in that too, that's cool.' [insert incredulous stare from hubby] 'ah, no it isn't.' :P

Jealous much! LOL! :P

I do the same thing with Jensen. Hubby is over it. Haha.

KyleXY is... Um, well, it's cheesy, and the characters are teenagers, and most of them are sexually active, but it was on the ABC Family channel, so it's not exactly like 90210 with a sci fi twist. There is some typical high school drama/angst, but the mythology of the show is fairly good. Or maybe I'm just swayed because Martin Cummins was involved in that quite a bit. LOL. Some things about it just make me roll my eyes, like Kyle's attraction to the stereotypical blond Barbie doll that lives next door. But don't let that turn you off, it does get better. The worst thing about the show is that it ends on a cliffhanger and after they'd set up quite a few storylines that I was interested in seeing played out. But I knew this going in, so it didn't bother me too much. Matt Dallas, who plays Kyle has amazing eyes, so even when the story was bad, he was good. I'd say watch it if you want some of your old Dark Angel nostalgia to kick in, and if you ever saw a movie called D.A.R.Y.L. because the mythology contains elements of both that I really liked. I'd say it's worth spending a week being entertained by watching the epis marathon style on Netflix. Not sure I'd have this same outlook if I'd tried to follow it when it actually aired, though.

So, like, this is completely unrelated, but my friend and I often play the Kevin Bacon game when we're bored. :o)

And to be fair, I'll point and say, "Hey, they were in an episode of Supernatural!" when I see a familiar face.

I never played the Kevin Bacon one, but I think if you were going to play the television version instead of the movie version, that Jensen Ackles would probably be the person to play with (and I mean that in every possible connotation.)

You know the original origin of Free to Be You and Me, right? It was a movie in the seventies, with muppets.

Here is the actual opening.

Here is an example of the muppets.

Haha, I did not know that. Muppets creep me out. :/

Muppets creep me out, too. There is apparently an age-old battle bestowed to my generation over the two movies Labyrinth or Dark Crystal. You either love one or the other. I think Labyrinth has David Bowie? And like, a lot of CGI creatures. It is about this girl who wishes someone else would babysit her little brother and he ends up getting taken by monsters. Anyway, that is the one I know so I guess in some kind of comparison I would pick it. As an adult I tried to watch Dark Crystal, in an attempt to see what the deal was. It has evil, evil muppets. I could not handle it. I had to turn it off. Ugh.
