I love the internet

.
How else would I find the answers to the stupid, yet endlessly nagging, questions I have throughout the day?
Just now I was watching some Firefly, specifically, Heart of Gold. And you know the girl who betrays them? She looked really familiar to me this time. And I kept thinking, "who the hell is she?". It was driving me nuts.(I don't know if her name is in the beginning credits, and as I can't find my DVD remote right now and I get aggravated by the buttons on the machine itself, I didn't want to backtrack.) I checked out all the names on the end credits at IMDB, but none were her. Then I had to keep wracking my brain...and I got it! Robin Scorpio! It had to be. (Important Note: I do not usually watch General Hospital. When I watched soaps, I watched Guiding Light. When I was in Junior High, I did watch General Hospital for a time, because Rick Springfield was on it. Same reason I've been watching it these past few weeks.) But I digress. So, a quick jump to the General Hospital site for the actress' name (Kimberly McCullough, btw), and a quick hop to IMDB, and sure enough, it's her! Now I can get back to my day.




I love the internet.

Hee, me too! I've done that with actors and actresses before- it's great for clicking on an episode of a TV show, clicking on an actor, seeing one of their other credits, clicking on that, finding someone else you know...

Also, clicking on guest/small actors in an episode, and finding out that they have common shows- usually ones like CSI, NCIS, etc.

I tried to match Paul Gross from Due South with Adam, season 4 Buffy. IMDB is very useful for proving me stupidly

It is truly amazing what you can find in Cyberspace.

Actually, IMDB alone is a pretty wonderful. One often wonders what they ever did without it.

I'm always doing that with actors. As soon as someone comes on the screen, I'll say to Dwayne, "I know that person. What else have they been in?"

But I didn't have to guess about the Robin Scorpio one. I watched GH for several years so I recognized her right off. I even said, "Hey, it's Robin Scorpio!" but Dwayne had no idea what I was talking about.

That kind of thing drives me crazy too. I cannot do without IMDb...
