Tonight On Smallville…Veritas

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on March 27, 2008 by superman1224

Ok so this is the one to watch. I have heard so many GOOD things about this one. So I am excited to watch. Here is the CW official description:

KARA TEACHES CLARK HOW TO FLY — Kara (Laura Vandervoort) decides to teach Clark (Tom Welling) how to fly in order to strengthen his chances against Brainiac (guest star James Marsters). However, Brainiac seems to have the upper hand against the super cousins,
and some of Clark’s loved ones are caught in the crossfire. Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore and John Glover also star. James Marshall directed the episode written by Brain Peterson & Kelly Souders

This is going to be it for a while. This was originally supposed to be the season finale due to the writers strike, but filming has resumed on the show, but won’t air until April 17th. So although changed from the original, this should still be a great episode!

Tonight On Smallville…Traveler

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2008 by superman1224

From the chatter I hear, this is going to be one of two episodes that you CAN NOT MISS. After tonight everything will change.

The CW’s Official description:

LIONEL KIDNAPS CLARK — Lionel (John Glover) arranges to have Clark (Tom Welling) kidnapped and held in a kryptonite-lined cell at a Luthorcorp facility. After Chloe (Allison Mack) and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) find a military electric probe at the farm, they confront Lionel, who throws suspicion onto Lex (Michael Rosenbaum). Chloe and Lana take Kara (Laura Vandervoort) to the Fortress and beg Jor-El to restore her memory as she is the only one who can save Clark. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Don Whitehead & Holly Henderson 

Tonight On Smallville…Hero…and One Republic

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2008 by superman1224

Smallville is finally back on. Hero marks the return of Pete Ross. Also don’t miss One Republic and the shameless promotion of Stride gum. Poor Pete, he always has to be the guy to hock something, even when he is the guest star.

The Officaial CW description:

BILLBOARD CHART-TOPPING BAND “ONE REPUBLIC” PERFORMS AND PETE RETURNS — Kara (Laura Vandervoort) and Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore) attend a “One Republic” concert and one of the roadies turns out to be former Smallville resident Pete Ross (guest star Sam Jones III). Pete unwittingly chews some kryptonite-laced gum and develops super powers.

Clark (Tom Welling) and Chloe (Allison Mack) are thrilled to meet up with their old friend but warn him against using his powers in public. However, Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) discovers Pete’s powers and blackmails him into helping break into a Lionel’s (John Glover) safe by threatening to reveal Chloe is a meteor freak. Kristin Kreuk and John Glover also star. Michael Rohl directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.

Probably not going to be the best episode to date, but it will be cool to see Pete.

Here is a look at the Smallville schedule for the rest of the season.

Siren

Tonight Smallville introduces yet another future member of the Justice League. The Black Canary makes her way onto the small screen. Tonight also marks the return of The Green Arrow. Here is the CW’s official description.

THE GREEN ARROW AND BLACK CANARY BATTLE IN SMALLVILLE — While secretly working for Oliver (guest star Justin Hartley), Chloe (Allison Mack) intercepts one of Lex’s (Michael Rosenbaum) project files, but she is attacked by the Black Canary (guest star Alaina Huffman), a mystery woman with a subsonic cry. Dinah Lance, Black Canary’s alter ego, is a conservative talk show host who is working at the Daily Planet and clashes with Lois (Erica Durance).

Lex convinces the Black Canary that the Green Arrow and his team are terrorists so she launches an attack on the Green Arrow and Clark (Tom Welling). Meanwhile, Lois discovers Oliver’s secret. Kristin Kreuk, Aaron Ashmore, Laura Vandervoort and John Glover also star. Kevin Fair directed the episode written by Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders.

This should be a nice little filler episode. It’s always fun to see new members of the JLA visit Smallville. I think I am looking forward to seeing The Green Arrow more though. He was awesome last season. Don’t forget to watch.

Mud & Steel: On Strike

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 9, 2007 by superman1224

The WGA strike continues to effect all areas of entertainment, and as a result the Mud & Steel show has shut down production until the strike has ended. We tossed around the idea of writing our own material, but in the end we decided not to cross the picket line. If Steve Carell can stand up for what’s right, then so can we.

With that, we hope you enjoy the re-runs. We’re starting at the beginning. You never know how long these things might last.

Tonight on Smallville…Wrath

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2007 by superman1224

wrath1.jpg LANA ABSORBS CLARK’S POWERS AND GOES AFTER LEX — Kryptonite and high voltage mix during a lightning storm, causing Lana (Kristin Kreuk) to absorb Clark’s (Tom Welling) powers. Using her newfound super powers, she breaks into Lex’s (Michael Rosenbaum) safe and steals incriminating evidence which she then delivers to Lois (Erica Durance) and Grant (Michael Cassidy), demanding they run a story exposing Lex’s secrets.

After Grant refuses to use stolen material, Lana decides to take care of Lex herself. Clark tries to stop Lana from killing Lex and a super battle ensues between the two. Allison Mack, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore and John Glover also star. Charles Beeson directed the episode written by Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders.

Watch while you still can.

Writers Guild Of America

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2007 by superman1224

writers-guild-of-america-west-logo.jpgAs some of you may or may not know the WGA is on strike. There have been a lot of headlines on this issue as well as a few casualties, and so I have decided to weigh in on the situation. First off, the reason for a strike. Basically writers who are not as rich and powerful as you would think are losing out on residuals from new media. One being iTunes and internet episodes. To add to the mess, their residuals on DVD sales are literally pennies per unit sold. Talks to resolve this problem now that these media types, such as iTunes and internet episodes seem to be the wave of the future have gone way south. Hence the strike. I completely agree with the writers stand on the issue and the big money media networks need to cough up the cash. Writers don’t make a ton of money and the way the business works there is no steady future for most. So if the networks want to keep making a butt-load of money on well written programs they need to share it with the people that make that happen.

So how does this effect us as viewers/fans of network television and movies? Basically, everything that has been written as of last Thursday, will air or be made into a movie. Everything else…dead in the water. A few examples are a few of my favorite TV shows. Smallville has enough episodes written to get them to Feb. If the writers don’t settle before then, the show will end on a cliff hanger until next season. In terms of episodes it looks like about 15 or so. You can find more about that here . The Office has already shut down and there are two episodes left on that show. Once those episodes air, the season is done! Heroes, will end in December. Lost is dead in the water unless the strike is settled before the seasons premier in January. The same holds true with 24 I believe. Also I should note that late night TV is done. Jay Leno, David Letterman, and all the others are on reruns.

As far as movies go, the JLA movie is written I believe, as well as Batman: The Dark Knight. However Superman may be tabled until after the strike because my buddy Derek has only written a treatment so far and that has yet to be picked up.

So here’s to hoping this thing get resolved within the next few weeks. This is such a bummer.
