Amy Jo Johnson on "Flashpoint" - 2 (2008)

Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly, MMPR) continued her starring role on the CBS police drama "Flashpoint." In episode two, titled "First in Line," the SRU team is called into action when a father takes a hospital hostage after learning that his dying daughter has been bumped from receiving a vital heart transplant even after they've been called to rush to the hospital for surgery. Johnson continues her role as Jules Callaghan, who uses her sniper skills to aid the team as the situation escalates. Ultimately, the father is apprehended without the team resorting to fatal tactics. In the end, Jules learns that the intended heart recipient changed his mind and allowed the young girl to receive the transplant instead.

"Flashpoint" currently airs on CBS

Sally Martin & Holly Shanahan on "Welcome to Paradise" - 13 (2007)

The final episode of "Welcome to Paradise" finds the Paradise hostel falling apart, due to lack of repairs. The episode is aptly titled "Little Bo Peepshow." The added noise from the construction of the new Little Bo Peepshow across the street leaves business in the gutter. Sally Martin (Tori, Ninja Storm) and Holly Shanahan (Camille, Jungle Fury) continue their starring roles, as their characters Sasha & Lucy team up with their male co-workers to convince the hostel's manager, Alex, to get the repairs done. When they later discover that the Little Bo Peepshow is also owned by Alex's rich father, they convince him to finally stand up for himself and their business. The timely arrival of Alex's mother gives them another strong ally, helping them to save the hostel. With repairs restarted, the gang is given some much-needed time off. Lucy finally gets some time away with Zac, until Sasha and the gang decide to tag along on their road trip. "Welcome to Paradise" ran for 13 episodes in New Zealand. Screencaps from the entire series have been featured here on the blog.
