Rather than review last night's episode of "No Ordinary Family", let's just go ahead and name guest star Tricia Helfer the Desktop Girl of the Week.
Helfer is probably best known for her run on "Battlestar Galactica" a show you'd think would've been right up my alley but I never really got into. I've seen an episode here and there, but having not been immersed in the mythology, I was totally lost.
I think the first thing I saw her in, aside from those random episodes, was her guest appearance on "Chuck" a couple years ago. And to be honest, aside from that, I've really only come across her voice work, both on "The Spectacular Spider-Man" and "Mass Effect 2". However, Helfer has made personal appearances at a couple of conventions I've been at in recent years, and she's always seemed really nice. Plus, she made last night's "No Ordinary Family" slightly less awful, which is very good.
