Morena Baccarin on "Las Vegas" TONIGHT. The episode is titled, "The Burning Bedouin." Eastern & Central Time Zones have missed her tonight. Western & Mountain Time Zones still have a chance! The episode repeats on Wednesday, February 28, at 11:00 PM EST, on cable channel TNT.

Morena plays Sara Amari, one of the three wives of the guest character Asad Samari (played by Nicholas Guilak), who's visiting the show's fictional Montecito Casino. Morena gets the most screen time of the three (!) due to series regular James Lesure (Mike) crushing on her--"She is The One for me!"--and therefore pursuing her.

Oh I was just getting ready to post this!! The full episode will also be available online tomorrow at
Oh, thank goodness! I was beginning to think I was the only one home on Friday nights to see this stuff!
LOL, well I was worried that I was the only person who watched "Las Vegas"!
I just happened upon it while surfing. I had to do a doubletake because of the accent.
I loved seeing her for those two minutes at the beginning of the show, and I hope she returns soon because I really find this to be unwatchable (I'm willing to suffer for my BDHs, but not for long!).
Was she on later in the episode? Any estimates at her screen time - I want to make sure it's worth watching LV. ;)
She had like 4 scenes, but I'm not sure they added up to as much as 5 minutes of screen time (but every line she delivered WAS a gem).
Morena is so great, she deserves better than this Vegas show.
I think Las Vegas is an entertaining show. It doesn't pretend to be better than it is and Caan's fun to watch. In fact all the cast seem to have a whale of a time.
I've never seen it but I really want to watch one episode where Vincent Ventresca and Paul Ben-Victor guested (huge fan of The Invisible Man).
I don't watch them every week. I wait until a season's done and then watch them all in one go.
Thanks for the news about the website viewing, MandyMouse, and the TNT rerun, Valsadie. Between those two, I should be able to see our Morena! :-)
MandyMouse, you're not, don't worry! I don't watch it every week, but I try to catch it whenever I can. Josh Duhamel is gorgeous!

And Caroline, I agree, the show is fun and fluff and definitely doesn't take itself seriously.
I've never seen a full episode of Las Vegas but what I have seen always reminds me of Pamela Anderson's old show, VIP. It appears to have the same kind of tongue in cheek approach and intentional ridiculousness about it, where the characters and situations are so totally over the top that you just have to go with the flow and enjoy it for what it is.

Seems like an okay series but probably not one that I'd be much of a fan of. I only used to watch VIP because I was a red blooded teenage boy with a Pammy obsession. Sure as hell wasn't for the acting or believable plots. :D
There are other shows I am told I must watch. Somehow I can't get into them. A certain lack of Whedon in the show diet I guess.

But I watch Las Vegas every week. I remember this one ep where James Caan had a problem. So you know what he did? He opened a drawer filled with cash, stuffed the moola into a gym bag, grabbed a Sig Sauger 9mm pistol, jumped into his Aston Martin and raced out into the desert where he had a gunfight with a posse of bad men! Can we get SMG on this show? Please?

My problem with the MB ep was that they did nothing with her character. Show that doesn't take itself seriously or no, when you have an actor that strong you use her. Let's get on the ball people.
