Simon Pegg, an actor who I often identify with fun and freewheeling characters like Shaun in Shaun of the Dead or Scotty in the new Star Trek films, and now the main character in Hector and the Search For Happiness, doles out his list exactly how I would expect: "I sort of thought I'd wing it. I find that if you start thinking about these things, you end up in a terrible mire of indecision, so I'm just going to try to go off the top of my head with it. There's no particular order because there will be discriminatory glitches. So here they are."
The effervescent Rose McGowan stops into the studio to give Matt and Grae the details of her experience directing the short film Dawn, airing as part of her film festival at the Downtown Independent theater in Los Angeles (get more info here.)

It's hard to stand out on a crowded programming dial, and that's probably always been especially true for the stars of crime procedurals; often, making one's mark isn't as easy as simply lowering one's shades while Roger Daltrey screams on the soundtrack. In order to rise above the fray, detective shows sometimes resort to adding the odd wrinkle or two in order to get our attention -- and although this tactic isn't always successful, sometimes it really, really works. In honor of all those offbeat gumshoes, this week, we're devoting Total Recall to an appreciative look back at some of the quirkiest crime-solvers in TV history. Join us, won't you?
