For those who don’t watch Smallville (which is most of you), this will mean nothing. But according to TV Guide and this week’s preview, when the show returns from its midseason break on January 15th, we’ll see the first appearance of members of none other than …
I’m actually a fan of the show, and enjoy it most of all when they give us cameos of other heroes from the DC comics universe. So far, we’ve seen Aquaman, Flash, Green Arrow, Mockingbird, Cyborg, Martian Manhunter, Supergirl, and … probably somebody else I’m forgetting. And now they’re adding to that list Cosmic Boy, Lightning Boy Lad, and Saturn Girl, founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes, who will travel back in time from the 31st Century, presumably to help Clark out with his Doomsday problem. Even better news for DC fans out there, the episode will be written by Geoff Johns.
I’m on vacation, but wanted to let everybody know that the new TheWB.com website has gone live. They’ve souped it up with full episodes of their old shows, as well as some that were never actually on the WB network, but are owned by Warner Brothers — including Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Smallville, Roswell, Smallville, Veronica Mars, Babylon 5, and some other non-sci-fi classics like Friends, Gilmore Girls, and The O.C.
I’ve been part of the beta testing for the new design, and I’m told that they’ll be adding more episodes of all of these shows to the library as the year goes on. They also have some cool features on the site, including the ability together clips from their shows to create your own custom-edited clips. I’m not sure why you’d want to do that — presumable to create commercials for TheWB.com — but it’s a fun way to kill some time!
No word yet whether the site is non-U.S. friendly, and I’m in the U.S., so I can’t test that. Maybe some of my Canadian and European friends out there can let me know?
Edited to add: Freakgirl just visited the site, and it looks as if it’s not entirely Mac-friendly yet.
