Television news -- and much more!


ABC Family has provided The Continuum four images and a description from "The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome," the season finale of The Middleman scheduled to air on Monday, Sept. 1.

Here's how the network decribes the episode:

"While chasing a suspicious character, Wendy is transported to an alternative mirror universe where Fatboy Industries is in complete control and the world is a bleak place to live. With storm troopers hot on her heels, Wendy must find a way out of this bizarro world. But when she runs into a gun-toting Noser, a brothel-running/fur-wearing Lacey and an eye-patch clad Middleman who doesnąt give a damn about anyone, she realizes getting home may be harder than she thought.

"With the help of the new versions of her friends, can Wendy figure a way out or will she be stuck in the land of the bleak forever?"

The CW has released images and a description of "Odyssey," the season premiere of Smallville scheduled to air on Thursday, Sept. 18.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"The Justice League, led by the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley), hits the Artic in search of Clark (Tom Welling), who disappeared after the fortress collapsed. The team immediately has a confrontation with the new CEO of Luthorcorp, Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman). Meanwhile, Chloe (Allison Mack) is being held prisoner by a suspicious group who has discovered she has a new power, and Clark has been stripped of his powers by Jor-El."

Kevin Fair directed the episode, with the story by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and teleplay by Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.

Lena Headey, who returns as Sarah for Season 2 of Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, said she enjoys the time a television series provides to develop her character.

"In her she carries a huge amount of torment," Headey said. "The doors keep on opening to her mental state."
