This week belongs to the superheroes, top-lined by the really-not-that-bad Iron Man 2, with DC’s latest straight-to-DVD animated feature Superman/Batman: Apocalypse and the complete Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic close behind. It’s also a solid TV week, with all manner of oddities and curios: the unaired Family Guy abortion episode “Partial Terms Of Endearment;” the full run of the charming ‘70s detective series The Ellery Queen Mysteries; the entire groundbreaking miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man; the pre-Prisoner Patrick McGoohan spy series Danger Man (a.k.a. Secret Agent); and the second and final season of the very funny Starz sitcom Party Down. In honor of that last item, here’s a musical tribute, from the final episode:
