Ooh, this is like a nicely wrapped package of all the things I'm watching right now! Love Erica in the red cape (I'm not always the biggest fan of her photoshoots because she looks better in motion than in pictures, but she looks so sexy here!), love all the well-deserved attention Nina Dobrev is getting for playing two characters so amazingly well, LOVE Candice Accola and Caroline, love Steven McQueen (is it just me or did he get hotter over the summer?!), love Scott Caan on H5O (easily the best thing about it, and that's saying something, considering I love the entire cast), and (this is fantastic timing, seeing as how I just very recently resumed catching up on The Mentalist) love Simon Baker as Patrick Jane.

*glomps you* I miss you, too!! I'm glad you like the scans. I haven't done them for a couple of weeks, but this issue was too good not to share.

I'm encouraged by the blurb highlighting Candice Accola. It's a sign they don't plan on killing her off anytime soon, right? Right?! Steven McQueen definitely got hotter over the summer. As did Jeremy. I like him so much better this season!

I think Scott Caan totally steals the show on H50. He is my favorite by far, and I, too, think they're all great. I love the dynamic between his character and Alex O'Loughlin's.

It's my pleasure! :) Erica looks so beautiful in that shot. I hope the HQ version of that image is released someday. And as long as I'm wishing, I'd love to see the outtakes, too!

If Dean had been on that vampire list, I would have been torn. ;)

BTW, I somehow missed the Supernatural scan when I coded this entry. D'oh! It's been added now.

I love the photo of Erica. Her hair and makeup look so natural. I wish her makeup always looked like that on the show!

I think what stands out to me the most is how effortessly sexy that picture of Teri Hatcher is....and how tame it is by today's standards. When that photograph surfaced back in the early 90's (because I think that picture was actually taken back in '94 or '95..not 1996. By 1996, Teri had already cut her hair off) it was considered rather scandelous. The idea that Lois was naked under the cape was so overtly sexy. That little bit of skin was so risque. The internet was so new and the idea of finding sexy pictures on the internet was so new. By today's standards, the photograph is downright tame. It's so funny just to think about how times have changed and how the internet has changed people's access to provacative photographs/sexual images.

I feel like a bit of a weird fan girl looking at Erica in that picture. It just makes me really happy to see an homage to that picture. LnC has such a special place in my heart. It was a cheesy show at times but I also thought it was such a beautiful show. It always provided such a clear POV for Clark and, imo, some of the most beautiful lines to ever be written just about Superman and what he means to the world (not even about Clois) came from that show. It was corny...but there was a real love for who Superman was and what he stood for that means a lot to me even now.

Thank you for posting!

I agree, I like Erica's makeup best when they let her natural beauty shine through. I think it's been noticeably better this season; she's never looked more beautiful, IMO.

I think I've told you this before, but LnC is very special to me, too. Tom and Erica are my favorite Clark and Lois by far now, but I still pop in those LnC DVDs all the time. I just watched Tempus Fugitive last night! :)

Oh...and course Margot Kidder did her own version of that shot back in the 1970's as well. I guess it's become a bit of a tradition. :)

Really? I didn't know that. Of course my favorite homage to that shot is the one Tom did in Crusade. ;)

Thank you for posting the scans :D
Erica looks beautiful!

She does! I like her homage even better than the original, and for me, that's saying something.

OMG thanks for all of these scans!!!!! Don't get TV Guide up here in Canada from what I can tell so very much appreciate this!!!

I'm always happy to share! I just wish I had a better scanner.

Thanks so much for these! I love Caroline on the Vampire Diaries. And Jensen's comment about the director of photography is hilarious!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: November 11th, 2010 08:36 am (UTC) (Link)
I love Caroline, too! When they made her a vamp, I was so afraid they were going to kill her off. I didn't like her in the Pilot, though. Here is the exchange Rap and I had about her in the comments of my review:

Rap: The blonde chick? Caroline? She annoyed the Hell out of me. I think you're right...most of the characters are expendible. Yeah, bloodfest!!

Me: The blonde chick? The one who was all, "It's not fair! What about MEEEEE?" Yeah, I hope Damon has her for lunch.

LOL! What can I say? She grew on me. :)

I love Jensen's self-deprecating humor.

Thanks for all the great scans! Erica looks stunning in that homage shot. I hope we get the HQ's. Wish I had watched Vampire Diaries. I need to pick up the DVD's after this season and get caught up. I feel like I'm missing out. Gotta love the Winchester Boys and I'm a big fan of H50!
