Hello World!

John Billingsley (Phlox) put in a short, but amusing, appearance in the Six Feet Under episode that screened here last night.

It's always really unnerving at the start of each new episode, because I know that one of the guest characters will die somehow - and often it's really quite shocking. In this case, it was more absurd than anything else, as Billingsley's character was hit over the head with a frying pan, because his wife found him "boring." After doing the dastardly dead, she sat down to nonchalantly eat the scrambled eggs she'd just cooked.

Billingsley always seems to play these quirky characters - he also had a small part in a West Wing episode as a man who wanted to change the projection used on maps. It's a pity he doesn't have a bigger part on Enterprise, because he's one of their biggest assets.
