The Only Reason I Watched this Is Jewel Staite?


The only reason why I watched this terrible SyFy movie is Jewel Staite. I haven't seen her in anything since SERENITY. Watching her tonight reminded me of a Nathan Fillion quote regarding Jewel. He was at Wizard Con and said that when the cast reunited "Jewel got a little taller. It was very cute."

Watching this I thought Jewel did get taller. Then I realized it was the boots she wore. Still, she is very cute.

I wish she gets more of a chance at a real role.

She's a Whedon Girl for gorram sake!

Yeah my Dad and brother met her at Wizard con and said she was a really cool girl. My brother ended up talking to her for around 20 minutes. It didn't sound like she was too excited about this movie, but was hoping everyone would watch so the ratings wouldn't be as bad as the last SYFY original. Unfortunately this film blows. I hope she gets some different shots.... She should go a law and order route though... She has that look.

shes in a season of SGA as a secondary if you just wanna watch her in something

She was the only reason I watched it, too!
I've been into her ever since her days on 'Space Cases' in the mid- late 90's.

her eyes are too small for her face and she seems uncomfortable acting anger, hatred or love. Plus her voice is like some cartoon alien.

I, too, only watched it because of Jewel. Scifi movies are going to suck no matter what, and I just wanted to see how she would do in another movie. I think she's talented, and wish she was cast in something decent.

I would like to see what you look like,and sound like reziztor.

You should check out Wonderfalls. It's one season and she's in a few episodes. Her character isn't very likable, but she does a good job at it and it's a good series.

I tuned in just for Jewel and only got to see a bit of the movie, but Jewel appeared in a delightfully low cut and short skirted sundress with short boots.

YOUZZAAAAA!!!!

Going to search for screencvaps now...

Yeah, I did watch this because she was in it. Not a horrible movie, not great either. But it was fun to watch her in it.

I'm also in this bandwagon. I liked her Rachel character on LA Complex. Its funny because that show made fun of the cheesy/campy SyFy movies. In that show she was a struggling actress in a fake movie called Cactibear (half catus, half bear). If she filmed this first then I'm pretty sure it helped with her LA Complex role.

I'm spendin more bail money than I'm gettin tail moneyyy!
