It took two years, but "Guilty Hearts" will be airing on CBS on February 10th and 13th! The following is the description from CBS.com:
Academy Award winners Marcia Gay Harden and Olympia Dukakis, and Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominated Treat Williams star in this four-hour mini-series based on a true crime love story.

Feeling suffocated by a marriage in which she feels increasingly unappreciated and misunderstood, Jenny Moran (Harden) finds herself in secret awe of the successful Dr. Stephen Carrow (Williams) who worships at the church where she is employed as an organist.

When Jenny innocently chooses to bring her ailing father to the highly regarded Stephen for a consultation, she quickly finds herself relishing the newfound attention of the charming doctor. Their relationship continues and intensifies after her dad's death. Soon, Jenny shocks her husband, Matt (Gary Basaraba), her children and mother (Dukakis) by leaving home. At Stephen's urging she even agrees to accuse Matt of abuse. Calling Jenny's move a part of God's plan, Stephen begins an illicit affair with the adoring Jenny and promises her he will soon leave his wife.

When Stephen's wife is fatally shot at home, his alibi is quickly disproved and he ends up confessing to the murder. But his temporary insanity plea is in jeopardy when the shocked Jenny dutifully informs the police of their affair. Vehemently denying the liaison, Stephen challenges Jenny's mental health and begins a campaign, with the help of his devoted church circle, to discredit and humiliate her. Despite Jenny's disloyalty and her continued resistance to return to him, Matt cannot bear to see how emotionally fragile Jenny has become - and vows to protect her from the church members who will stop at nothing to get Stephen acquitted.

Nothing much, just marking yet another new layout! Took elements from previous layouts and gave it a new look (hopefully!) with a light Shiva-inspired (FFVIII) blue coloring.

Brooke's episode of "In a Heartbeat" looks like it's finally going to air April 8th. You can find some information about it on Disney's In a Heartbeat site.

Also, for the site's second birthday we've gotten an easier to remember URL to access the site: brooke-nevin.com.


Wednesday, February 28, 2001

According to Disney Channel Viewer Services "Episode 1-16 ('The Boy's No Good') of In A Heartbeat is not scheduled to air at this time." Check on the 11th just in case, but it looks like it'll be a while before we see Brooke's episode.


Sunday, February 25, 2001

It looks like Brooke's episode of 'In a Heartbeat' may not air anytime soon. The Disney Channel seems to have scheduled a Will Friedle/Boy Meets World marathon that day, and other episodes are scheduled for the rest of the month.

Brooke episode of 'In a Heartbeat' entitled 'The Boy's No Good' airs in the US March 4th. Canadian fans will have to wait a bit longer as 'In a Heartbeat' has recently begun airing on the Family Channel. Also, the following is a short description of the episode, which unfortunately doesn't tell us much about Brooke's role.

The Boy's No Good: When Caitie falls for a preppie boy, she comes to realize that he is using her to get back at his parents.

For Brooke fans which live in areas that support the PAL VHS format "Guilty Hearts" is available for purchase. I've found one online retailer that sells it: blackstar.co.uk. If anyone knows of any other retailers or could convert from PAL to NTSC, please email me. Thanks!


Tuesday, February 06, 2001

Remember the Birthday & Holiday Greetings? Brooke has received them and big thanks to all as it "but it really made [her] day!" Nothing new on the acting front as she's been concentrating on school, but hopefully we'll get to more appearances later this year. In the meantime we've still got "Guilty Hearts" and "In a Heartbeat" to look forward to!

HAVEN
Review from Issue 313 of US Weekly

CBS Sunday and Wednesday, February 11 and 14 at 9:00 PM

This engrossing drama shows that is is possible to make a Holocaust movie in an era in which the problem is not so much how to tell the story as how to avoid simply retelling it. Haven is based on the little-known history of 982 Jewish refugees who were transported to a camp in upstate New York in 1944. An American official named Ruth Gruber (Natasha Richardson) traveled with them and became their friend and champion. The Holocaust itself is depicted only obliquely, through the survivors' stories, illustrated with nightmarish glimpses of corpses and mass graves. Those powerful moments put the actors playing Americans -- including Anne Bancroft and Martin Landau -- at a disadvantage; for her part, Richardson seems stymied by her Brooklyn accent. Moreover, some dramatic moments feel contrived. The refugees' suffering and anxiety, however, feel all too real.

3 out of 4 stars: Worthwhile account of a forgotten bit of history.


Tuesday, January 16, 2001

"Haven" finally airs! Part one can be seen February 11th at 9:00 PM and part two airs February 14th at 9:00 PM. Brooke appears in part two of the mini-series.

Wow. 2000 went by pretty quickly. Anyhow, the site's got a new look, it reflects my new "white space" phase in webdesign. And on the Brooke front -- the new year brings (hopefully) new appearances on TV, namely the much anticipated episode of "In a Heartbeat" (with fellow Animorphs co-stars Shawn Ashmore and Christopher Ralph), and the two miniseries we've literally been waiting all year for "Haven" and "Guilty Hearts".
