Yes, Fred - it's *that* Natalie Morales (Middleman!!). 

Now you have a reason to watch this show. 

Cool - Perabo, Christopher Gorham and Kari Matchett!  :)
And a reason to mourn that Middleman revival they keep rumoring.  :(

Damn.  Kari and Piper?

Looks like we picked the wrong week to give up cop dramas!
