See Her Tonight
Michelle Ryan on Metal Hurlant Chronicles
(10:00 PM EST, Syfy)
Metal Hurlant Chronicles sounds like stories about what happened the last time that the See Her Tonight staff overindulged in Goldschlager–but we’ll fill you in on this new Syfy series before we start raving about Michelle Ryan as a sci-fi siren. The idea is that each episode takes place on a different planet where an asteroid called the Metal Hurlant has passed by and screwed things up on the ground. That means that this series (originally airing in France) is an anthology show, with a different cast for each episode–which also means that it’s a great way for assorted sci-fi figures to pick up some quick cash with more genre work.
That’s why tonight’s episode has Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s James Marsters–although we’d prefer Eliza Dushku, Charisma Carpenter, or Michelle Trachtenberg. The great news is that we get Michelle Ryan as the other cast member in tonight’s episode. It’s been almost a decade since Michelle Ryan really made the scene as a rising sex symbol. The lovely London lady kind of kept a low profile since her starring turn in The Bionic Woman reboot bombed back in 2007. Well, that’s been a low profile in America. She had a nice hit with Cockneys vs. Zombies over in the UK, and it was also one of our favorite zombie movies of 2012. Nobody really paid attention when Michelle joined the cast of the USA network’s Covert Affairs, though.
That’s all just a reminder of how fickle guys can be when it comes to celebrating great sex symbols. We’re a lot more loyal–and especially to stacked British babes who keep working in genre productions. We guess there’s almost an entire generation of guy’s who missed out on Michelle Ryan’s incredible talents, so get started now in appreciating everything that she can bring to your living room…
