Dwayne Cameron, Donogh Rees & Gerald Urquhart on "Legend of the Seeker" (2009)

The sixth episode of the second season of "Legend of the Seeker" featured three more Power Rangers alums. The Seeker, Richard, and his comrades save a village of pacifist healers who refuse to fight, despite their losses to a group of slave hunters. Former Mercury Ranger Dwayne Cameron (Tyzonn, Overdrive) guest stars as Kur, a young man who wants to go against tradition and learn to fight to protect his people. He asks The Seeker to train him, which sparks controversy amongst them, especially his mother Roga, played by Donogh Rees (voice of Necrolai, Mystic Force). When the young fighters' training unleashes an anger that almost kills them, they discover they've been under a spell to prevent them from fighting. When the wizard, Zedd frees them from the spell, their fury begins to consume them as they tear apart their enemies and Richard appears to be the catalyst behind the rage, leading to a discovery about his ancestor. Also appearing in the episode is Dwayne Cameron's Overdrive co-star Gerald Urquhart (Flurious, Overdrive), who appears in two scenes as a slave hunter named Dut who tries to ambush the healers but is stopped by former Mord'Sith Cara. Before she can kill him, he's saved by Roga, a debt he later repays by helping convince his leader that the healers will not pose any further threat to his people. The episode titled "Fury" was directed by veteran PR director Andrew Merrifield.

Alex Borstein on "Frasier" (2003)

Zeo voice actor Alex Borstein (voice of Queen Machina, Zeo) made a brief guest appearance on the long-running comedy series "Frasier," during the show's tenth season. Borstein appeared in the episode "Farewell, Nervosa" as Evelyn, a health care supervisor who arrives to monitor the physical therapy sessions of Frasier's father, Martin Crane, who is under the care of his personal nurse (and daughter-in-law) Daphne. After she tells him to be on his best behavior for her evaluation, Martin is too upbeat about the therapy prompting Evelyn to believe Daphne is taking it too easy on him. Evelyn jumps in to show her how to really work his muscles, which brings Martin extreme pain. Borstein appears in one extended scene alongside series stars Jane Leeves & John Mahoney. She is the second PR alum featured on the blog for appearing on Frasier. Gabrielle Fitzpatrick was previously posted.

Season 10 of "Frasier" is available on DVD
