If the sophomore season of The Invisible Man (airing Fridays at 8 pm/ET on the Sci Fi Channel) has left some viewers feeling as if their lives are flashing before their eyes, it's not entirely unwarranted. But rest easy, kids, it's not your lives... just your names.
As series star Brandy Ledford (aka superspy Alex Monroe) whispers to TV Guide Online, the show is paying tribute to the many Internet fans who dissect the program on a weekly basis. "If you watch the new main titles closely, in between the cuts, they're flashing up the screen names of fans." Why? "The show understands the importance of fans, more so than most other shows."
As proof of that fact, Ledford offers up tales from her days as Baywatch's bikini-clad lifeguard, Dawn Masterton. "It was a huge international show, but they weren't doing it for the fans. It became sort of self-indulgent and self-aggrandizing. But on this show, we're so well-received by the fans."
The actress, who first appeared on The Invisible Man in last month's season premiere, admits that she was a tad reluctant to see what online fans had to say about her first episodes. "It's hard, because what if they say things that I don't want to read?" she muses. "But when you see what they write, and how supportive they are, you really want to do a lot for them. And now, their names are in the opening credits!"
