"I hope that someone gets my, I hope that someone gets my...."

"... Message in a bottle..." Or so sang The Police.

Speaking of which, "Message in a Bottle" is the title of LSH episode 2.08, the last new episode of 2007. Hey, last year at this time we had only 5 episodes and we were seeing endless reruns of "Timber Wolf". With just 5 new episodes to go for the season, I predict we'll see three of those in February and the 2-part season (series?) finale in May.

Series finale? Well, remember that the KidsWB block is going away, with programming supplied by another company, so there's no guarantee the Legion will be back in the fall.

Anyway, on to this week's episode, with info courtesy of Warner Bros...

The Legion of Super Heroes offers its final new episode of 2007 this Saturday, December 1 with a huge adventure in the tiniest of lands.

In the episode entitled "Message in a Bottle," Superman and the Legion must venture into the legendary bottled city of Kandor in order to stop Imperiex, who seeks an advanced Kryptonian technology believed to be hidden inside.

Set to air December 1 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT on Kids' WB! on The CW, "Message in a Bottle" is written by Joseph Kuhr and directed by Scott Jeralds and Brandon Vietti. Adam Wylie voices the Gatekeeper, while Kari Wahlgren stars as Shrinking Violet and Richard McGonagle lends his pipes to the Chancellor.

Kandor, huh? And who's that cyborg Superman?

All things considered, it looks to me a lot like they're in the Fortress of Solitude in the first and last pics (sensible if they're looking for Kandor). Presumably the Fortress has been left abandoned for the last several centuries. So my guess is the 'cyborg' is a dilapidated Superman robot, still operational but missing some 'skin'.

In the BG, we're seeing what looks a lot like one of the giant robots from the Fleischer short "The Mechanical Monsters" on the left, and a set of Kryptonian Spinning Hula Hoops Of Doom from the Donner films on the right...

Meanwhile, I guess Supes never got around to re-enlarging Kandor on Rokyn in this timeline. And I wonder if Brainy will have much to say on how Kandor ended up in a bottle in the first place... though fortunately for him, the real Supes doesn't seem to be around for this trip...

Yeah, bringing the original Superman along to what amounts to a three-dimensional diary of his life to come...not a great idea. They may even specifically tell him not to come along on this one. :)

If it's the long-abandoned Fortress of Solitude, maybe they'll have statues of the Legionnaires there.

Wouldn't it be weird to walk in and see 1000-year-old statues of yourself?

I couldn't figure out why this was the "final" episode of Legion for the season (thinking it maybe had something to do with the writers' strike) but now I get it -- last for 2007. Hope they do more with the future Superman before the end of the year.

Is it just me, or was there supposed to be a new episode of Legion around Thanksgiving-time that didn't air? I can't find any record of it online, but I recall seeing Duo Damsel in a new costume. Or maybe it did air?

It did. Terra Man was the guest villian trying to kill the kid who'd build imperiex tech. Some good one liners
