Bones (David Boreanaz) and her team are faced with a unique challenge when a notorious street artist (Jay Paulson) accidentally falls and glues himself to remains of a murder victim while working on his latest billboard. While Booth and Bones start interview suspects including his girlfriend (Stephanie Lemelin) and the man’s boss (Jeff Witzke), Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Fisher (Joel David Moore) work on trying to separate the remains of the victim from the artist’s body using a simple jar of peanut butter.

Justice League #14

by Alan Rapp on November 27, 2012

in Comics

justice-league-new-52-14-coverThe Justice League chases the Cheetah to the jungles of the Congo where Superman becomes infected by the curse and Wonder Woman is faced to deal with truth about the woman she once believed was her friend.

The “end” of the Cheetah story is a little awkward, especially given that it appears the super-villain’s plan was to be taken captive all along (and wasn’t searched for any transmission devices before being put in prison). Superman also take Diana home to Smallville for a little more mid-air smooching, which doesn’t go unnoticed by another member of the team. It will be interested to see where this storyline goes now that Batman knows about their relationship.

The Shazam! back-up story works a little better than usual as it is focused on Black Adam journeying out into the world with Dr. Sivana rather than the truly awful (not to mention unrecognizable) version of Captain Marvel that DC has presented us with as part of the New 52. Seriously, this character is already in serious need of a reboot. For fans.

Joseph Gordon-LevittHitFix is reporting that Warner Bros. is in talks with Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play Batman in the proposed Justice League film tentatively slated for the summer of 2015. If true, it’s unclear whether Gordon-Levitt would play the same character of John “Don’t Call Me Robin” Blake from The Dark Knight Rises (hopefully not) or would take over the mantle of Bruce Wayne as well in a true reboot that would still slyly acknowledge Christopher Nolan‘s films (hmmm….?)

Deadline is reporting Chevy Chase has finally parted ways with Community even though many of the show’s upcoming Fourth Season episodes have yet to be filmed

Ace Showbiz is reporting that Lenny Kravitz has been cast for the role of Marvin Gaye in Midnight Love, the new biopic of the Motown singer from director Julien Temple

Entertainment Weekly is reporting Sherlock won’t return until late 2013 and the Third Season may not air in the United States until 2014

Five-0 is called in to investigate the murder of a man who was shot, dosed with gasoline, set on fire, and hit by a moving car in the middle of remote sugarcane fields. The trail leads McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Kono (Grace Park) to a squirrely therapist (Vanessa Marcil) who McGarrett is positive is involved in the murder, even if he can’t prove it. A trip to the victim’s wife (Amy Sloan) reveals the victim had something on his conscience to atone for before his death, but doesn’t provide McGarrett anything to connect an improper relationship between her husband and his therapist leading Danny (Scott Caan) to question McGarrett’s initial assessment of the situation and their leading suspect.
