Karen Gillan and Selfie

One of my favorite folks on TV in the past few years has been Karen Gillan whose Amy Pond turned out to be one of the Doctor's most important companions on DOCTOR WHO.

Karen shaved her head to appear as blue-skinned Nebula in this summer's billion dollar hit, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

And then, for some unearthly reason, she agreed to star in SELFIE, a new ABC sitcom which not only eliminates her lovely Scottish accent but makes her play a supremely annoying, ultra-modern, almost teenage style lead. The advance reviews have not been good for the show with its overt sex jokes and vomit sight gags but they HAVE been good for her. The official premiere is this week but the pilot has been on Hulu for a while now. I didn't like it at all. What's YOUR take?
