Nana Visitor. I'd rather see them as they are now and also add new characters. What can I say? I'm just one of those weirdos who prefers continuity instead of reboots.
Do you know how old Nana is? 56. That's kinda old for a lady to be playing an action-orientated character like Kira was.
I don't think Kira was particularly "action-orientated", but even so, I don't think that's "old" at all. It is possible to maintain a high level of physical fitness at that grand old age you know.

How about Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lundgren, Li, Van Damme, Neeson etc? Should they throw the towel in too? Or do "the boys" get a pass?
Not all 50-somethings are as fit as the men mentioned, and as I said above, she's not a big star compared to them. That does not mean that I don't like Ms. Visitor or Kira, but I am bowing to reality as seen in Hollywood.

Then again, the vast majority of people who make it on to shows like Jeopardy! are really not that knowledgeable. I recall one time when the right question was "What is the Sun?" (the answer was "The nearest star to Earth") and the woman who buzzed in looked vacantly into the air and mumbled something about "Omega?"

Alex Trebek was noticeably startled at how somebody could be so ignorant.
This wasn't Celebrity Jeopardy, was it?
I don't think so. It just happened to be a contestant who was incredibly stupid about basic astronomy.

Fun fact: one American in four doesn't know the Earth orbits the sun.

I bet I can guess their political affiliation... but I won't, because this isn't the NZ.

Fair enough.
