Erica Durance Wonder Woman Harry's Law'Smallville' actress Erica Durance will guest star on 'Harry's Law' as Wonder Woman ... sort of.

According to TVLine, Durance will appear in a Season 2 episode of 'Harry's Law' as a "psychologically infirm" woman who thinks she's the DC Comics character. In her Wonder Woman persona, Durance's character seeks revenge on those who commit domestic abuse.

Durance will appear in the 11th episode of 'Harry's Law,' which does not have an airdate yet.

Audiences may recall NBC produced a pilot for a new Wonder Woman series from 'Harry's Law' creator David E. Kelley. The pilot never made it to series.

No word on whether Durance will don the iconic ensemble.

'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 21 (Series Finale) Recap

smallville finale['Smallville' – 'Finale']

'Smallville' ended its ten-season run with an alternately exciting and disappointing finale, which, if you think about it, suits the series perfectly.

The show has always offered a consistent mix of the inspiring and the awful, even from the perspective of a Superman/comic book fan like me.

I loved seeing this story come to life on the tube, and, in some ways, this modern re-telling of Superman's early years was more thrilling and fun than almost any other Superman origin tale. But, at its heart, 'Smallville' was always a sappy teen soap loaded with clunky sci-fi/fantasy mythology elements.

The show carried on in that often clumsy, unsophisticated vein all the way to the end, but there's one thing 'Smallville' always got right – the depiction of Clark Kent as a beacon of light for all humanity.

'Smallville' E.P. Kelly Souders Weighs In on Weddings, Clark's Destiny & the Series Finale

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 8th 2011 1:00PM
Tom WellingFor 10 years, 'Smallville' has been a mainstay of the ever-evolving WB/CW schedule. Through cast, creative and even network changes, the show has stayed as strong as the iconic Man of Steel at its center, displaying near-Kryptonian resilience as lesser series bowed out around it.

But after a decade of watching mild-mannered alien-turned-farm boy-turned-reporter Clark Kent (Tom Welling) trying to change the world from his diminutive hometown, we've finally reached the home stretch. Superman casts a long shadow, and when the show returns from its final hiatus on April 15, we'll see Clark embrace his destiny like never before.

AOL TV caught up with 'Smallville' executive producer Kelly Souders who, along with producing partner Brian Peterson, is ushering in the end of a 'Super' era. We discussed the long-awaited return of Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), what's in store for the show's most enduring couples and what fans can expect from the final episodes.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Secrets from the 'Smallville' Set: Celebrating 200 Episodes

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 15th 2010 2:35PM
Tom WellingIt's been a long road, watching our mild-mannered Superboy stumbling towards his destiny as the Man of Steel that we all know and love, but after 10 years and 200 episodes, the pop cultural phenomenon known as 'Smallville' is finally reaching its zenith.

Although the last season obviously has its share of bittersweetness for those who have been involved with the project for a almost a decade, the cast and crew couldn't be more excited to share their final chapter with the fans who have brought them this far -- and tonight's episode, 'Homecoming,' is only the first in a series of satisfying payoffs that will eventually close the show in a spectacularly super fashion next May.

Last month, TV Squad and other outlets were invited up to Vancouver to tour the iconic 'Smallville' sets and interview the cast and crew at the show's milestone 200th episode party. See what they had to say about the climax of this beloved series, and get a preview of what you can expect in tonight's record-breaking episode.

'Smallville' - 'Charade' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 23rd 2010 11:33PM
(S09E18) With only four episodes remaining in the season, this felt like an episode that should have come a little earlier. But, it is what it is. I liked the non-linear storytelling aspect of it and almost wish they did an even less linear version of the story to keep it interesting. Now that it's very mature, 'Smallville' as a show is taking more chances.

Brian Austin Green Likes Lois Lane on 'Smallville' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Apr 18th 2010 10:20PM
Brian Austin Green on 'Smallville'One of the downsides to hanging out with Superman is that you may occasionally get hit on by a supervillain. On 'Smallville' (Fri., 8PM ET on The CW), Lois Lane (Erica Durance) gets a taste of this when Metallo (Brian Austin Green) puts the moves on her. Sure, he's cute. But he's a cyborg with a Kryptonite-powered heart who hates Superman -- not really the best catch.

'Smallville' - 'Upgrade' Recap

'Smallville' - 'Upgrade'
(S09E17) Five episodes left in this ninth season, so General Zod needs to start putting together whatever his endgame plan is going to be. Steps were definitely taken toward that this week, but first we got the return of one of Superman's deadliest foes: Metallo.

It's always nice to see Brian Austin Green, and he's actually quite effective in this role. I was a little disappointed in how quickly they were able to re-establish his character in whatever way they needed him for this week, but I'll forgive it because it was so much fun seeing almost everyone else turned on their ears.

Checkmate and The Wall took a break from intimidating everyone and pushing Tess around, which freed Tess up to make an unexpected alliance. Also missing from the fun was Green Arrow, but there was plenty of action without them.

'Smallville' - 'Checkmate' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 10th 2010 1:03AM
Smallville(S09E15) I'm usually pretty critical of 'Smallville,' but tonight was a darn good episode. Pam Grier's character of Amanda Waller, taken straight from the comic books, showed the right amount of menace (albeit a bit comic book-y). The interaction between Tess, Oliver, Chloe and Clark kept my interest. There was even a new mystery relating to whomever Jonn is working for.

If there were any downsides to the episodes, they were minor and revolved around Tess. Her character seems all over the place and has had too many different roles in her history. First, she's Luthor's pawn, then she's a bad-ass corporate CEO, then she's in bed with Zod, then she's a Checkmate agent, and now she's a rogue agent with a price on her head. The writers need to decide who she is and be consistent about it. Or maybe the inconsistency is part of her character. But that gets a pass since the rest of the episode worked so well.

'Smallville' - 'Escape' Recap

Smallville(S09E15) 'Smallville' is back! For a tenth season, no less.

Six more episodes remain in this season, and tonight we got some advancement in the Lois/Clark relationship, plus some sort of relationship between Chloe and Oliver which remains vague. But then, if relationships on television weren't fluid, they'd be far more boring.

When we last left the show, Zod had obtained his Kryptonian powers from Clark's blood. Now, instead of one of the 'Saw' movies, the episode has become an 80's horror flick with Silver Banshee becoming the equivalent of Freddy or Jason (or perhaps one of the 'Leprechaun' movies, if you want to keep with the same Irish heritage as the Banshee).

'Smallville' - 'Conspiracy' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 27th 2010 1:18AM
Smallville(S01E15) Tonight's episode started with a callback to last week's destruction of the solar towers by Clark. Then it turned into your average 80's horror flick combined with one of the 'Saw' movies.

One of the rules of casting for this show must be that every male character must be able to look good without a shirt. Both Oliver and Zod did just that in this episode. Zod looked good for a soldier that has been in battle and taken shrapnel while leading his army of American Apparel models. Krypton must have a great H.M.O.

Who else predicted the ending other than me? More on that after the jump.

'Smallville' - 'Persuasion' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 20th 2010 2:05AM
Smallville(S09E14) There goes that possible future. Actually, the destruction of the solar tower was probably a good thing. Since we already saw where that would lead in that "future" storyline, we now have no idea where the season will go. Obviously, there will be some sort of Clark/Zod confrontation down the line, but the context remains a complete blank.

Here's hoping the writers think of something good and it doesn't become one of those 30-second final confrontations with the season's Big Bad in order to save on the special effects budget (so much for 'Doomsday').

'Smallville' - 'Warrior' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 13th 2010 1:23AM
Smallville(S09E12) Tonight's episode provided a reason towards why Clark eventually puts on the costume. Ironically, it revolves around George Lucas. Apparently, despite having superheroes, the 'Smallville' universe has the Metropolis Comic Con (to go along with such ones as the San Diego Comic Con and the New York Comic Con). The episode takes the opposing opinion of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons from their 'Watchmen' comic that a universe populated with actual heroes would lose interest in heroic comic books.

When one thinks about it, the 'Star Wars' references make sense. It was the success of the first 'Star Wars' movie that led to Hollywood's interest in science fiction and fantasy that led to the first 'Superman' movie. Irony of ironies.

Review: Smallville - Disciple

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 30th 2010 11:00AM
smallville disciple(S0910) This was a halfway decent midseason premiere. I certainly wasn't expecting that.

For Smallville, things usually start to drag around the midseason point. Then it's like driving with the parking brake on until the season's final three episodes arrive. But not this year.

This week's solid entry and next week's "Absolute Justice" event are signs that Smallville will sustain the momentum by giving fans exactly what they want – fun episodes that feed into ongoing story arcs, and plenty of geeky superhero action.

"Disciple" smartly nudged a few major plot threads forward, offered some sweet Lois & Clark moments, and delivered an entertaining self-contained story. Spoilers below.
