Anyone else notice a lot of Australian actresses crop up as main characters in the new shows this year? Here’s a rundown:
Rachael Carpani (Against the Wall)
Abby Kowalski. The Internal Affairs detective from a family of cops. Because who doesn’t love an Aussie playing a Chicagoan in what is suppsoed to be Chicago, but is obviously Toronto.
Phoebe Tonkin (The Secret Circle)
Faye Chamberlain makes up 1/6 of the titular Circle & 1/2 of my new favorite couple.
Rachael Taylor (Charlie’s Angels)
Another Abby! Abby Sampson. Former
Seattle Grace-Mercy West surgeon New York socialite really into burglary. Now an Angel.
Margot Robbie (Pan Am)
Laura Cameron. Newest Pan Am stewardess, Life magazine cover girl, & sister of the awesome Kate.
Poppy Montgomery (Unforgettable)
Carrie Wells. The NY detective with hyperthymesia.
Side note: not really sure I like the Pops as a redhead.
Bonus: Claire Holt (The Vampire Diaries)
It’s not a new show, but it is a new character! Claire Holt is back! Hooray! After her stint as Emily “Revolving Door” Fields’s girlfriend on Pretty Little Liars, she is now playing recent undead Undead & Original sister, Rebecca, on The Vampire Diaries. She gets to rock a British accent!
Another bonus involving Claire Holt? She & Phoebe Tonkin starred in the Australian show “H2O: Just Add Water” together.

The second & more awkwardly placed gratuitous shirtless scene of the episode.
March 20, 2011
Pretty Little Liars – S01E21 “Monsters in the End”
Finally Emily gets someone worthy of her! and I’m not talking about the guy in the purple suit. If only the same could be said about Spencer…
Chicago Code – S01E06 “The Gold Coin Kid”
That Superintendent hat cracks me up.
Skins (US) – S01E09 “Tina”
I’m still confused how this episode about an adult good was actually good. It was so funny! Who would have thought! I want Tina to hang out with the kids more often!
The Event – S01E13 “Turnabout”
Just another day grocery shopping with Taylor Cole.
Glee – S02E16 “Original Song”
Off the Map – S01E10 “I’m Home”
Skins – S05E08 “Everyone”
“Your girl crush is so blatant” come on, Mins. We all saw you wearing those suspenders.
Community – S02E18 “Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy”
The Britta & Troy/Abed storyline was ao amazing. Everything was so brilliant. “May.Be.We.Do.”
Parks & Recreation – S03E07 “Harvest Festival”
Bones – S06E16 “The Blackout in the Blizzard”
Did this episode seem really long to anyone else? (That’s why it got six caps)
March 13, 2011
Pretty Little Liars – S01E20 “Someone To Watch Over Me”
What was going on this week? Aria & Emily were really funny! The tables have turned, Spencer/Hanna! Also, just pull out the flash drive & run! SHE’S BLIND!
Greek – S04E10 “Legacy”
I think everything I want to show is summed up here.
The Chicago Code – S01E05 “O’Leary’s Cow”
Namaste, and good luck.
Skins (US) – S01E08 – “Daisy”
omg it’s her actual sister! Abbud was actually funny! Something Anwar never pulled off
The Event – S01E11 “And Then There Were More”
The Buchanans are reunited. It’s awkward with the new information they have.
The Event – S01E12 “Inostranka”
Inostranka is invaded. Sean takes off.
Glee – S02E15 “Sexy”
BRITTANA. ENOUGH SAID. And by “enough said” I mean: Artie? Really? You’d choose Artie over Santana? Is this some kind of bizarro alternate reality? (Look at that, something I thought only Skins would accomplish: six caps)
Off The Map – S01E09 “There’s Nothing To Fix”
I for one, vote for more Minard/Clark interaction
The Big Bang Theory – S04E18 “The Prestidigitation Approximation”
Bones – S06E15 “The Killer in the Crosshairs”
Cam cut her hair! Staccato Mamba!
Skins (UK) – S05e07 “Grace”
omg I love Mini.
Degrassi – S10E38 “Jesus, Etc. Part 2”
KC & Jenna were not annoying for once. Clare was awesome as always
March 6, 2011
90210 – S03E17 “Blue Naomi”
Naomi made a REALLY good Na’vi. I think that was the only take away from the entire episode, right? Well besides Ade’s revenge
Gossip Girl – “S04E17 Empire Of The Son”
Another one bites the dust. Serena’s men have no hope. You gave it a kind of good run, Ben.
Castle – S03E17 “Countdown”
Ryan & Esposito were so cute!
How I Met Your Mother – S06E18 “A Change Of Heart”
I love Nora. Maybe it’s only because she’s British. Or really attractive. Or British. Maybe. Also, I was a really big fan of the doctor! She was hilarious.
Pretty Little Liars – S01E19 “A Person of Interest”
Narration through gps. brilliant move.
Greek – S04E09 “Agents for Change”
Franny! Pledge Spidey acting like the Biebs! I can’t believe this was the penultimate episode of Greek!!!
Skins (US) – S01E07 “Michelle”
Actually good! One of the best so far. “Watch out
Katie Cadie,” Michelle’s giving you a run for your money. Also, that hair+jacket. beau’iful
The Cape – S01E09 “Razer”
This is the penultimate of The Cape too!! Which is sad since the episode kind of sucked…
The Chicago Code – S01E04 “Cabrini Green”
I love the Jennifer Beals “what is going on” faces.
The Good Wife – S02E16 “Great Firewall”
Most satisfying end to an episode. LOVE Eli/Becca scenes!
Skins (UK) – S05E06 “Alo”
Brilliant as usual. The scenes with Alo & Mini were wonderful. NICK LEVAN IS AMAZING!
Degrassi – S10E37 “Jesus, Etc.”
I loved the use of the pay phone! Oh Degrassi Community School and your rigid new rules!
