Cataleya is named for a delicate orchid, but she's in fighting shape. This sleekly beautiful killing machine mows down numerous macho opponents in the primal revenge drama "Colombiana. " Just as Cataleya gets the job done, the movie accomplishes its basic genre agenda. What's disappointing is that "Colombiana" initially seems like it may develop into something more than a violent exercise. The opening scenes grab your attention as 9-year-old Cataleya sees her drug-dealing parents slaughtered in their home in Colombia.

Et tu, HBO? The nation's premium channel titan has commendably refrained from the rush to reality. This is not to say that HBO hasn't done its share of verite video shows. The titillating Real Sex, Taxicab Confessions and G-String Divas fit within the genre. But they play in late night and are not series in the conventional sense. However, with Family Bonds, HBO descends into the muck that is tarnishing prime-time television. It's interesting that the documentary-style exploits of a family of bail bondsmen is making its debut tonight opposite the Emmys, traditionally HBO's proudest night.

ONE LOOK AT FOX'S "Robin Hood" and you know this is an extraordinary TV movie. There's a simple reason for that -- it cost $15 million, about five times the amount usually spent on films for the small screen.And a lot of that money is visible, not in salaries paid to big stars, but in sumptuous location filming and impeccable attention to period detail. This "Robin Hood' has a look that makes you wish you were watching it on a big screen.Which is exactly the way the rest of the world will see it. And that's why Fox could spend so much money on it. It can get a big splash for its network in the United States and make the bucks back in theater ticket sales around the world.

And now, the news. Blood boiling, head scratching and letters to members of Congress, strictly optional. Target has decided to stand by a company policy that allows its pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control, including the so-called morning-after pill. This is the company that wants to be the go-to place for all those young people setting up housekeeping for the first time. Target's target audience -- those 18- to 34-year-olds with freshly minted credit cards and apartments and houses to fill -- probably also has prescriptions to fill.

NEW YORK -- The last of the new fall TV seasons were unveiled yesterday, with both Fox and CW, the fledgling network formed from the flagging WB and UPN operations, aiming squarely at 18-to-34-year-olds. For fans of programs on the soon-to-die WB and UPN, yesterday's presentation may have seemed like a reality-show knockoff: Survivor: The CW Version. The new network is going with themed nights and combining former competitors Top Model and One Tree Hill into what the network hopes will be a strong one-two punch on Wednesdays.

Are middle and high school students likely to attend a "Teen Expo?" In the eyes of HC DrugFree's Teen Advisory Council, there is no way. This is what Jessa Coulter, a senior at Mount Hebron High School, who co-chairs the council, told the board of directors. "None of the adults agreed," Coulter said. "But, it was my job to convince them otherwise, and I did. Teens don't identify with the word expo." As a result of the teens' efforts, the HC DrugFree Job and Volunteer fair kept its original name.

It came to her while she was passing through an airport, watching kids tentatively pass through scanners and eye security guards patting down their parents. Stormy Friday, author of several books on managing facilities, had finally found a vehicle to write her first children's story: It would soothe children's fears of flying by having her Siamese cat and two British shorthairs take on an airport caper. "A lot of young children are afraid to go through the metal detector," said Friday, who owns a consulting firm in Annapolis.

The American dream depends on what mirror you're looking into.That ageless bit of wisdom -- a commentary on our diversity as a people -- is being tested by a new breed of high-tech market researchers as they work to identify groups of like-minded consumers.Marketing executives long have been frustrated by the fact that neighbors who are the same age, have the same number of children, similar houses and the same household income, quite possibly have polarized views of how to buy their way to the aforementioned dream.

There was a Toys R Us across the street, but all the kids were lined up outside Annapolis Mall yesterday for the newest toy in town: the U.S. Air Force Experience. Who could blame them? A real F-16 Fighting Falcon on display in the parking lot lured them to the high-tech recruiting exhibition that rolled into this Navy town Tuesday. Inside the huge trailer, the show aimed for its audience with giant video screen presentations, computer kiosks and a fleet of F-16 flight simulators that dared them to pilot a high-speed virtual mission.
