SMALLVILLE NEW EPISODE

The WB has released a description for "Oracle," the Thursday, May 4 episode of Smallvile.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned when he sees his father's ghost (John Schneider) at the graveyard, but becomes even more confused after Jonathan tells him he must kill Lionel (John Glover). Meanwhile, Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) develops a vaccine for Fine's (guest star James Marsters) deadly virus, but Fine intervenes and injects him with the vaccine, which causes a shocking reaction in Lex."

The episode was written by Caroline Dries and directed by Whitney Ransick.

Look for more on Smallville soon here in The Continuum.



THE SIMPSONS NEW EPISODE

Fox has released a promotional image from "Girls Just Want to Have Sums" episode of The Simpsons, scheduled to air on Sunday, April 30 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Frances McDormand guest-stars as Principal Melanie Upfoot.

Here's how Fox describes the episode:

"Springfield is in an uproar after Principal Skinner makes a sexist comment at the end of an Itchy and Scratchy musical. Principal Skinner is replaced by Melanie Upfoot, a women's educational expert, who decides to divide the school into two different schools: one for boys, and one for girls. Studious Lisa soon becomes frustrated when she isn't learning anything from 'girls' school.'

"When the Principal refuses to allow her to take math at the boys' school, Lisa decides to dress up as a boy. While Bart teaches her the ropes of boyhood, Lisa wins the math award at the Student Achievement Awards and learns what it's really like to be a part of the boys' club."

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES ANIMATED UPDATE

April Winchell is providing the voice of President Winema Wazzo in the upcoming Legion of Super Heroes animated series from Warner Bros. Animation.

The series has not been announced yet, but is expected to premiere next fall on The CW's kids network that will spin off of Kids' WB!.

In the series, President Wazzo is the mother of Phantom Girl and doesn't approve of the Legion.

Winchell has dozens of voice role credits, mostly on Disney shows, and recently has worked on such series as Bratz, Lilo & Stitch: The Series, Kim Possible and Teamo Supremo.

Winchell is the daughter of Paul Winchell, who was the voice of Tigger in Winnie the Pooh.

TRANSFORMERS: EVOLUTIONS

Transformers: Evolutions, a new series of out-of-continuity stories, launches in June from IDW Publishing with Hearts of Steel, a five-issue mini-series by Chuck Dixon and Guido Guidi.

Here's how IDW describes the book:

"In issue one of the 5-part debut mini-series, Hearts of Steel, writer Chuck Dixon and artist Guido Guidi introduce the robots to the Industrial Revolution, where a charismatic hammer-man named John Henry discovers that a steam-drill is really an alien robot named Bumblebee. Before Henry can process this information the Decepticons attack -- disguised as tanks, trains and walking engines. Is this all part of a larger scheme by Starscream? And if so, will the other Autobots arrive in time to stop his nefarious plans?

"The Transformers are such a unique brand of characters that it would just seem unfair not to be able to play with them in different and new sandboxes," said IDW Publishing editor Dan Taylor. "Transformers: Evolutions gives readers the opportunity to explore new possibilities with some of their favorite Autobots and Decepticons in out-of-continuity events that have never been explored.
