Teri HatcherLois Lane, meet your mom, Teri Hatcher! That's right, Hatcher, the star of 'Desperate Housewives' and former Lois Lane on 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,' will appear on 'Smallville' as Ella, Lois' (Erica Durance) mother.

'Smallville' lore has established Lois' mom as dead, and that won't change. According to The Ausiello Files, Hatcher's Ella will appear in old videos Lois finds. Quite the casting coup for the final season of 'Smallville.'

In other casting news ...

Review: Lie to Me - Fold Equity

Lightman (Tim Roth) goes to Las Vegas to help locate a missing finalist in the World Series of Poker in the LIE TO ME episode 'Fold Equity,'

There's always a potential for screw-ups when networks start airing episodes out of the producers intended order (see NBC and their goofs with Detective Crosetti's death in season three of Homicide), but Lie to Me seems to have avoided that sort of miscalculation despite FOX's shuffling of the season order. That is, until "Fold Equity" aired last night. Originally set to air during Fox's Simpsons week (catch the Sideshow Bob reference?), "Fold Equity" didn't drop the ball on anything as major as a character's death, but more than once during the hour it felt as though we were taking some giant steps backward.

The Unit season three -- An early look

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 24th 2007 4:24PM
The UnitLast time we saw the men of The Unit, things were going quite wrong. Some of them were taken prisoner, others went on the run, and one was recruited by the CIA while another had to face a possible court-martial. It wasn't much better for their wives since they had to cope with their personal problems while worrying for their men and children and protecting secrets and lies. Even though we all knew The Unit couldn't be a TV show with such a title without, well, a unit, we still pondered how the group would get back together, if they would all return, and if things would ever be the same.

Over the weekend, I had the chance to watch the first two episodes of the season: "Pandemonium, Parts One and Two." The first part will air tomorrow, while the other will air on October 2.

Small spoilers ahead!
