Both shows have a healthy # of returning vets and these shows are only 1/2 an hour. I don't see the need yet for all of these new people. Seems like alot.

Who was the last female cop we saw on AMC? Was it Mimi Reed? Taylor Cannon?

Yay for another Ladycop! Or Lawyer...

LOL, I forgot all about Natalia. Probably because she became a cop in 3 episodes...

Well, who exactly is going to be a love interest for Griffin??

It would be a crime for that man not to have a love life (like what ended up happening to him when AMC was on TV) on a saucier version of AMC.

Paula Garces! That's exciting! She's not the bestest actress in the world but she's pretty good, coming off a couple of seasons of "The Shield,""Warehouse 13" and guesting on "The Good Wife," as well. Always liked her!

Never cared much for her on GL but I really enjoyed her on all of the subsequent shows she has appeared on like Warehouse 13 and The Shield.

I believe she was on the Shield too. I loved the Shield. What a great show that was with Michael Chiklis.

They need new people for storytelling purposes. I mean, there's only so many new storylines you can explore with the same characters who have already interacted for decades.

I honestly don't think you can say it's a lot. AMC currently has 21 contract actors/characters and only 4 of them are new. OLTL has 17 contract actors/characters and 1 of them is new.
