Fred Hembeck corners Superman about a rather disturbing episode from the first season of the Man of Steel's 1950s TV show.


Booksteve presents an anti-drug public service ad drawn by the great Frank Frazetta.


"Lost" continues to suffer in the ratings, despite this week's episode being by far the best of the season.

Wednesday's episode of the Emmy-winning drama pulled in the smallest audience for a new episode in its history, a relatively scant 12.8 million viewers when compared with its 20 million-strong heyday.

Despite ABC's best efforts to protect Lost from the ravages of American Idol and the encroaching threat of Criminal Minds by moving it to 10 p.m., the flashback-happy show instead lost about 1.7 million of those who tuned in for Lost's big comeback last week after a three-month hiatus.


Aaron Eckhart will star as Harvey Dent (the Gotham City district attorney who becomes Batvillain Two-Face) in the next Batman flick.


Sigourney Weaver and director James Cameron are reuniting for another sci-fi film.

"Avatar" is shooting entirely in 3-D. Weaver will play a veteran interplanetary explorer who serves as a mentor to Jake Sully (Worthington), a wounded ex-Marine thrust unwillingly into an effort to explore and exploit an exotic planet rich in biodiversity. Ultimately, he crosses over to lead the planet's indigenous race in a battle for survival.

Cameron wrote the script from an idea he nurtured for over a decade while working on the 3-D technology necessary to realize its wholly imagined world. Pic will be released in both 3-D and 2-D.
