What I'm Watching: Samantha Who?

Samantha Who: Season 1, Episode 11 “The Boss” (B)

Timothy Olyphant is one star who I think will have a good long career ahead of him, and though some people may think he is typecast, I think he is pretty able to play any different number of roles. On “Deadwood” he was an honest sheriff, in “Meet Bill” he was a smarmy weatherman, in “Hitman” I’m going to presume he was a vengeful hitman and in “Live Free or Die Hard” he was a determined computer hacker slash wannabe terrorist. Here he is a cocky but likeable boss slash suitor, and I like him a lot. This episode also does a lot better than most of Sam’s recent adventures. The ending kiss between Todd and Sam is amusing, and should lead to interesting places.
