Friday LinkFrogging - on Sunday

Yes, I know its Sunday.

Yes, I know these are late.

Familial obligations prevented their normal Friday release, but they are here all the same.

Fear not kids, whilst I was away I entertained one of those most sacred of snipe hunts - pop culture film location location.

You see, my travels took me to the Corpus Christi, Texas the location of the semi-legendary, cable-famous 80s flick, The Legend of Billie Jean.

You were nearly treated to Helen Slater as cheesecake, but, since she rose and crashed from fame before the advent of the US lad mag, there just weren't sufficient photos to suit our purposes.

All I can offer is this.

No, Supergirl won't be featured this week.  Instead, please say hello to Piper Perabo.

Ms. Perabo is the star of USA's Covert Affairs.  Its the latest in the long line of USA's pick an exotic career matrix.  It started with spies in Burn Notice and has continued on through EMTs in Sirens.

I have to be honest here.  I haven't watched a single episode of Covert Affairs.  I'm perfectly happy assuming its a gender reversed Burn Notice and moving on.  What's that?  I'm wrong?  Not as far as I know.

Ms. Perabo first popped up on our radar in the dancing bartender flick, Coyote Ugly.  She's also appeared in the Cheaper By the Dozen movies as the daughter of Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt.

She was also in a little seen "arthouse" flick called Lost and Delirious which explored...ummm...exploration at an all girls boarding school.  She was...ummm...exploring with Jessica Pare aka Mrs. Don Draper while Mischa Barton watched.

True, nobody in that movie chopped off their hair and went on a quasi-messianic crusade for Honda scooter reparations, but, did I mention "exploration"?

Fair is fair.

Let's hit the links.
