    Ela é simplesmente maravilhosa, gosto de todos em CM, mas não consigo mais assistir sem ela.

  2. Kat says:

    I love how Paget Brewster is absolutely freaking adorable about the fact that she is adorable. For those of you who haven’t checked out her work, you absolutely should. She’s such a brilliant actress that, after watching every episode of Huff religiously, it took me a year of watching Criminal Minds before someone told me it was the same actress. I refused to believe it because I loved her CM character and hated her Huff character – and that’s when I realized how skilled she really is. And ended up loving her on Huff watching it the second time. 🙂

  3. Jenny says:

    Awesome episode. So honest, and funny.

  4. Rob S. says:

    It was SO STUPID the way they did her character. They faked her death and brought her back like it was no problem.

  5. Sku says:

    I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever seen Paget Brewster in anything, but this podcast made me a fan. Awesome.

  6. toonsmyth says:

    by the way… I’m sure SOMEONE must have already pointed this out to you, but every time I think of your podcast title, I am reminded of this “Makin’ it” ultra-cheesy theme song. Enjoy!

  7. toonsmyth says:

    I plan on listening to this as soon as I can, but I already know I’m going to love every minute of it. Paget Brewster is a GODDESS! I’ve been an avid fan since Andy Richter’s show, but REALLY fell in love when I found out that it was Paget doing the voice of Birdgirl. Thank you for your exquisite choice of guests!

  8. JE Smith says:

    Many years ago, I listed to the audio commentary for THE SPECIALS, and was completely charmed by how forthright, hilarious, and amazingly quick Paget is. I’ve been a huge fan of hers ever since, and if possible, I adore her even more after hearing this awesome interview. Riki continues to provide the best podcasting on the Nerdist network. 🙂

  9. Shmoo says:

    not much else to say, except more please! 🙂

  10. NanC says:

    I really enjoyed this interview with Paget B. I’m a long time fan of Criminal Minds and will miss her presence on the show in the coming season, but now fully understand her decision to leave. This podcast is my first at nerdist and I also really enjoyed Riki’s easy, breezy, ‘just us girls’ method of hosing and interview. I’ve already bookmarked several more of her interviews for later listening. Thanks for the entertainment and the edification on behind the scenes of film, etc..

  11. kendall says:

    OMG thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the interview love her, she is incredible.

  12. Kelly says:

    Love Paget! Great interview.

  13. Megan says:

    Paget is SO amazing. I love her so much! She’s so beautiful, funny, quirky, and just… EVERYTHING GOOD! She is so incredible. She is definitely my idol and will be forever. I’ll miss her on CM, though. LOVE THIS WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!! <3

  14. Mara says:

    LOVE Paget. She’s so intelligent, witty and open. All of which was so clear in this brilliant interview. Absolutely loved listening to it. I feel inspired.

  15. Kelsey Quinn says:

    I love her! Going to miss her on Criminal Minds! Can’t wait to see what she does next!

  17. LaTisha D says:

    This interview just proves why I love Paget Brewster so much!! Aside from being so very PRETTY, she is extremely funny!!!

  18. Vincent S says:

    Oh my Shit! I think I got my heart stolen by this beautiful woman when I first saw her in Andy Richter Controls the Universe and I now think this woman is fantastic in Beyond Belief. I just think she’s funny and beautiful… @[email protected]*.
