She didn't look like that as the trashy woman--at all.

Once again we're in agreement. She probably won't replace Carey Lowell in my heart, but she's got a certain something. Btw, I got first dibs. Wrote this after her first appearance:

"Parisse is a knockout, but she's a knockout in the way actual human females are knockouts and not the built-from-a-kit way Hollywood starlets and swimsuit models are knockouts. She's got a croaky voice, a funny nose, big bambi eyes in which you can see the light of thought. The last 4---count 'em 4---female second chairs, they had to dress down drastically to make them plausible as people who worked 100 hour weeks for lousy pay, doing McCoy's legal grunt work, and spending their working days entirely in the company of cops and criminals. Jill Hennessy got so tired of it all that she's built an entire show around her hair and her Wonder Bra.

They're probably dressing Parisse down too, but she doesn't look dressed down. She looks like she's doing the best she can and some days that works, some days it doesn't."

Whole post here.

I read that post when you posted it! I wanted to link to it for this post, but couldn't remember for the life of me where to find it! So yeah, you have dibs. (Are dibs sexist? Probably. Good thing you've got them and I don't.)

Are dibs sexist?

Dibs qua dibs, no. But dibbled masses, maybe.

Yes, dibs are sexist, and I would never ever ever ever ever really call them on a human being. I know better. I swear! I'm just trying desperately to get the same kind of attention from angry women bloggers that Kevin Drum's getting.

That's also probably sexist. Darn.

Hey, thanks for dropping by my page!

I suppose you could call dibs on TRYING to get her--and good luck to you! Meanwhile, I have to point out that one of her best assets is that she can actually act--E Roehm not so much. Not at all, really. (And, largely straight though I may be, I'M more of a lesbian than ER's character, fer chrissakes.)
