On Thursday: Smallville, Idol, Grey’s Anatomy & Millionaire Matchmaker

SmallvilleEp. “Hex”

This week wasn’t one of the really necessary episodes if you know what I mean. Basically, Chloe is inadvertently granted her birthday wish by the Mistress of Magic, Zatanna. She wishes she could have the life that Lois Lane now has and is transformed into her while she is away in Mexico City. Throughout the rest of the episode, Clark and Lois (Chloe) go on a hunt to find Zatanna and reverse the curse. However, Zatanna is working her magic to find a book from her family that is within the Luthor archives. She basically contracts Oliver to acquire the book. Her master plan: to resurrect her father by sacrificing herself, a life for a life. Also, in the middle of the journey, Clark is hexed to believe that he doesn’t have any powers and that he is just a facts-only reporter.

The one really cool part about the episode was that Chloe discovers her “purpose.” She becomes Watchtower for the loosely-based Justice League headed by Green Arrow. She now is the tactical eyes and ears of Aquaman, Black Canary, Cyborg, Impulse and Green Arrow as they fight to save the world. I can’t wait to see where this new career track takes her.

American IdolEp. “1 of 10 Voted off”

Following the Motown performances on Wednesday, we were able to catch the results show tonight. Lucky for me Survivor wasn’t on tonight so this scheduling didn’t mess up my viewing schedule. Anyways, the show of course began with a group number. Now as you know from past posts, I typically fast-forward straight through these segments since I hate them; however, this week I decided to watch it since I wanted to see what songs they chose to perform. Did anyone notice how lip synced the performance was? I mean it was so obvious it was painful to watch. Also, Lil Rounds was basically the front woman for the group performances and everyone else was just backup.

In addition to the group performance, there were also performances by Reubin, Joss Stone & Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder. I was kind of glad to see Reubin since I haven’t really heard anything from him since that horrible singe he put out in 2004, “I’m Sorry In 2004.” Joss Stone and Smokey’s performance was really good but it was somewhat awkward to watch them looking at each other during the performance. I mean Joss Stone is younger than I am and Smokey is older than my father so it was just a little creepy. Stevie Wonder’s medley performance was awesome. He definitely showed Scott MacIntyre what a true blind artist is. I mean there is no comparison between the two.

In relation to the results, Scott MacIntyre, Matt Giraud and Michael Sarver were in the Bottom 3 this week and Michael Sarver was eliminated. Of course he had the chance to be saved by the judges, but I knew the minute he was announced as the loser that there wasn’t a chance in hell that he would continue.

Grey's AnatomyEp. “Elevator Love Letter”

So this week’s episode did not begin as I expected. Well it did and it didn’t. They had Alex as the narrator, which makes sense since the episode was primarily about Izzie starting her treatment, but the opening scene had Christina being strangled by Owen in bed. Apparenlty, he is still dealing with some PTSD issues and he went into a somnambulant rampage.

The rest of the episode dealt with Sheperd trying to gain the confidence to work on Izzie, Alex dealing with the love of his life going under the knife, Callie dealing with the guilt from wishing Izzie would die in the past, George being both upset and scared at Izzie’s potential fatal diagnosis, and Christina and Meredith handling their own personal issues on top of Izzie’s procedure.

Also, Meredith gets engaged to Shepherd after a very sweet “Elevator Love Letter’ that chronicled their relationship through the cases they have worked on. I know most people have loved them from day one but I still cannot stand Shepherd.

Millionaire MatchmakerEp. “Matt & Jimmy D”

So this week, Patty started the episode bitching to her peons about how they suck at getting the money from the millionaires in the club, but after she was done reeming them, the episode moved on to the new millionaires of the week: Matt Hatchette and Jimmy D’Ambrosio.

Matt HatchetteMatt Hatchette, better known as Hatch, was an ex-NFL player and a current film producer/actor in Hollywood. He proved to be an interesting match for Patty since he was really combative when it came to the argument of whether chivalry was dead. In the end, Patty won, especially since she made Hatch go to a “Chivalry Boot Camp” before his date with Maya. They really seemed cute together and their date went well. I will be interested to see how they really fair in the long run. I think this was one of the good millionaires that weren’t too crazy or hard to manage for Patty and it showed as he was able to land a really cool and pretty girl.

Jimmy DJimmy D’Ambrosio is an interestingly aggressive Italian club owner from Chicago. It was quite interesting watching him this week because he fit the stereotype of the Italian mob than anyone I have ever personally met (and p.s.,  if you Wikipedia his last name, you get Italian mobster hitmen). He couldn’t stop himself from talking in the third person, which I cannot stand, and he ended up selecting Cara as his match for the date. Now did anyone but me recognize Cara? She was recently on another dating show, Mamma’s Boys. I could recognize that unbelievably ditsy, wide-eyed, huge teethed bimbo from a mile away. She was crazy in Mamma’s Boys and she was still just as crazy when on a date with Jimmy D. Also, we found out she has a bit of a circuit issue in her brain (“Mal, Mal, Mal, um, Mal, Mal, Mali, Mali, Malibu”). I seriously thought she was a Stepford wife for a minute and that sparks were going to shoot out of her head. Makes sense since we also found out that she is a Scientologist. Doesn’t she know that you never talk religion on a first date? Anyways, their date didn’t go too well and Jimmy D has decided to remain single after the Hollywood disaster he had.
