Oliver Queen is about to announce a hostile takeover of Luthorcorp when a bomb explodes in the office, killing the entire board of directors and hospitalizing Queen. Chloe races round to the Kent farm to interrupt Clarke and Lana's super-powered sex session with the news.
Naturally, they visit Queen in hospital, but he's clearly not giving them the whole story. Clarke and Lana discover the bombs were laced with Kryptonite. Meanwhile, Queen calls in Chloe to do some investigation on a former employee of his who was a bomb expert. He reveals that he suspects the man is now working for Lex. And he is! We get a little glimpse of Lex attached to a load of tubes and wearing a Hannibal Lecter mask.
Newsted left the band in 2001 but had spent 14 years with the band since the death of their original bassist, Cliff Burton. According to the report, the band don’t want politics to mar the ceremony as they did with the Blondie induction in 2006.
"Jason Newsted will be there, and he will be playing with us at one point," guitarist Kirk Hammett said. "We went as a band when Black Sabbath was being inducted, and at that time Blondie was also being inducted that night. And there was so many politics and so much drama that, you know, we collectively said to each other, ‘We don’t want any of that,’ because it kind of, it puts a really bad, sour note on the whole celebration itself."
It’s clearly a slow news day in Celeb-land, as The Sun and The Mirror both regurgitate Robbie Williams quotes from his visit to We Will Rock You the other night.
The Mirror reckon Robbie said he was definitely going to rejoin Take That (a dull rumour that’s been doing the rounds every month since 2005). However, while The Sun’s report agrees with this, it also says that he was dashing back to the studio to record with Mark Ronson.
Now, let’s imagine that you’ve been asked the same question for four years: “Any chance of you rejoining Take That, Rob?” Why not just nod your head and go along with it? “Yeah, yeah. Even though I’m clearly recording a solo album, I’d love nothing more than to hook up with Take That again.”
Dave Buznik (Adam Sandler), a mild mannered introverted man meets Dr Buddy Ridell an off-the-wall therapist with a difference! Though an odd chain of events that seems all too unfair to Buznik.
The film begins by showing the viewer a scene involving a childhood embarrassment of Buznik, which later explains Buzniks main problem. We then meet Dave, an employee for a company that demands it all and gives thanks for nothing. He is about to go on a business trip and we witness him answering a phone call from his boss. The call is to the point, thankless and disconnected before Buznik has finished his sentence. He is then walking through the airport with his partner Linda, but uncomfortable with public affection, and noticing a man watching, he boards his flight without kissing her goodbye.
Why read minds when you can read people? The new maverick detective series kicked off on five tonight - ‘The Mentallist’. I misread it at first and thought it was a show about a steel worker or something but …The dad did it, but that was just the scene setter, showing us Patrick Jane (played by hunky blonde Simon Baker) in action.
He goes into the victim’s family home and helps himself to tea and sarnie, a new approach to policing which would be met with outrage in any decent British home, but not in the US, where the mum declines his offer of said beverage and snack while he’s goes to work on her. Oh, he’s good - just like Columbo, only better looking. So good in fact what when Dad walks in and lies about killing their daughter, she knows it and shoots him.
“It’s not as bad as it looks,” says Jane to his colleagues and, like all great maverick detectives (only much better looking) is promptly suspended for the next two weeks in TV time. Until he goes over the head of the sexy partner he'll have a love/hate relationship with, to help solve the double murder this episode is all about.
I hate the first two ... three ... four ... five ... six ... oh dear. Is it part of the contract that they all have faces like smacked arses? The first task - cleaning!! They looked shell shocked already. Yes, that’s right - you will have to roll up your sleeves. The girls call themselves Ignite; Mona is the Project Manager. And she picks up a duster and asks what it is. It doesn’t bold well, does it? The boys go with Empire and Howard is Project Manager. Although Philip seems set to talk a good game without actually playing. On the face of it, the boys seem to have organised themselves a bit better but just take too, too long to clean one car. And leave the doors open when jet washing! Honestly, you’d think they were teenagers. Mona decides the best way to drum up business is to bully the customer into paying twice as much as he normally does and tell him he’s wrong! *Thumbs up* Way to go. Not. Having bought everything they possibly could from Sir Alan’s goodie van, the girls discover that actually, they don’t know how to work half of it. And it costs them the task; they take £10 more than the boys but have spent £90 more!
I've been anxiously awaiting the first episode of this series to start - probably since the last series finished. I find the show fantastic it's got a mix of reality tv and a sense of a fly-on-the-wall entrepreneur documentary to it! And I think from both points of view they've carefully arranged the candidates in the hope that they're high self opinions and personalities will clash.
Well, todays lauch episode of 2009 saw a candidate leaving - even before the process began! Leaving the boys team one man down...
The first task was pretty much a hands on graft, split up into two teams - Men vs Women, They were provided a budget of £200 and given access to a van per team with cleaning products which they could buy and/or hire. Firstly the teams chose which products they needed and although neither teams appeared to really consider cost vs requirements, the womens team seemed to think that the £200 was a target and not a limit!
Jesse, having Riley's freshly shot corpse in her bedroom, has been busy straightening up and buying an exact replica of the table that got destroyed in the last episode. Today Is The Day contains the following:
- Sarah and Derek separately suspect that Cameron killed Riley. Sarah tries to convince John that Cameron cannot fully be trusted, especially after she discovers Cameron's stash of spare parts.
- Ellison has to work out John Henry's riddles in order to find Weaver's daughter Savanah, who has gone missing in the office building.
- Jesse starts a fight in a bar as a cover story for the cuts on her face. She also has a series of flashbacks to a submarine operation in the future where a reprogrammed Terminator seemingly double-crossed his human handlers. She uses this as a rationale to Derek that Cameron needs to be dealt with.
- John visits Riley's body in the morgue and discovers the cuts on her hands and face. It's not clear whether he still is starting to suspect Cameron.
After several less than exciting episodes, Ourselves Alone returns the Connor clan to their murky, badly lit house. Two big things are going on - Cameron is glitching: she's got pigeon-crushing hand spasms, and suicidal future-girl Riley pays a visit on John, but receives a frosty welcome from Sarah.
Now, by this stage, it's clear that Jesse and Riley are involved in some human-led futuristic plot involving John. What I'm not clear on is whether Uncle Derek is involved or has any idea what's going on. For the moment he seems content to pick random people from the phonebook and spy on them in case they're involved with SkyNet. Ho hum...
