Poor Katee Sackhoff. Her attempt at getting a defining role outside of Starbuck in the soon-to-be-ended Battlestar Galactica last year failed miserably with cancellation after only 8 episodes of the planned 13. Not that Bionic Woman was anything remotely resembling the quality viewing you get watching BSG, but with that show about to end, it’s important for a girl to make sure she knows where the next pay cheque’s coming from. Signing onto Nip/Tuck as a guest star for season 6 doesn’t exactly guarantee you security, after all the guest stars on that show have the shelf life of a dairy product.
So, like any sensible woman, Katee has branched out and gotten herself on an NBC-based cash cow named Lost & Found. Produced by Dick Wolf, the brains behind Law & Order, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the upcoming Law & Order: London (which has a special WTF? feeling all of its own), Lost & Found focuses on a young female cop in the L.A.P.D. who gets demoted to dealing with John/Jane Doe cases. Wonder if she finds special meaning in it too. Who cares, as long as she gets to say “frack” a lot, it’s all good for me.
