Tonight on the Tube: Smallville Marathon, Bowl Games and Paula’s Party

Get Smallville - The Complete First Season on DVDThis is the last Friday of the year and there isn’t much on tonight. During the day you can catch nine pretty good episodes of Smallville, which includes the “Pilot” episode. This week has given me a chance to catch up on shows that I TiVo’d but hadn’t watched yet. I have now seen the all the episodes of The Unit for this season with two and three episode mini marathons each night this week. It makes it like watching one really long exciting action movie. Have you been catching up on any shows this week?
