Like your point JasonTMays, so far Darkseid is a sissy. Who knows what is in store the rest of the season? 'Isis' the next episode certainly feels like a filler episode that will barely forward the story arch. I get the impression the series has been mapped out up to but not including the final episode. But as you may know Darkseids greatest power is to corrupt the corruptable. Jor-El has taken a 'tough love' approach to making Clark earn the suit by being incorruptable. Jor-El has more faith in Kal-El than he thinks. I think the whole 'you are not worthy' schtick was to goud Clark on. Being that the producers have styated a more lighter approach this season, this hardly bodes well to making Darkseid the villain that Superman can never really defeat.

I have to agree with Page and Ponyboy, found this episode an A.  Loved seeing Marsters back.  Love the future scenes.  Loved the corny floating at the end.  And yes, even enjoyed the goofiness at ole Smallville High. 

Was it perfect?  No.  But I found it extremely enjoyable, and really felt like, for the first time in a long time...maybe even ever?  Smallville managed two good episodes in 2 weeks time.

tiberiuscan, I am not attacking anyone for enjoying something i didn't. You can't attack me on a point I never made. If you love the show the way it is, more power to you. Personally I don't see how a former TV critic can sit back and allow all this "crap" (yes, I can say it more... that was kind of the point) to wash over you and notget bugged about it.

I never watched Lois and Clark - just never interested me - but i loved the old George Reeves stuff. Been reading comics since I was 5 and watched all the movies and animated Superman there is to watch.

I clearly have said a number of times over the past two seasons I like the show, and love the characters, and wish the creators over at Smallville had a quarter of my passion for the Superman mythos. Worse than that however is the obvious laziness that goes on over there when it comes to characterization. Add that to incredible lapses of common sense and it's very easy for a viewer with an above average intelligence to get upset.

Again I think you're missing the point. I want the charaters of Clark, Lois, Ollie etc to be flawed. There's no fun in flawless characters. I don't want the writers, directors and the rest of the team to allow common sense flaws  - like portraying Lois as stupid one minute brilliant the next in the same episode, or Clark destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage just to stop Ollie on his motorcycle - that's just bad writing, and doesn't build a character - instead it convolutes a character to the point where they are not believable or interesting.

In a fantasy show like this, they better make the perfectly believable seem real so I can suspend my disbelief for when a dead father speaks to his son, or bad guys appear as smoke.

Erica Durance can do slapstick comedy. She cannot act dramatically when she does try to... i just don't buy it.  BTW Joe... I still love you!

JoeArtistWriter 10/19/2010 2:31:47 PM

Loving you back Iracors. I think Erica's strength is light romance, but drama is not her friend, and I'm not a huge fan of her comic timing. Seems forced. Good comedy hits you where you're not looking. Durance seldom surprises me. We can agree to disagree.

And xpal, again, I enjoyed back to back eps, and you're right... we don't get much of that. I just wish they'd try harder to not fail at the easy stuff.... it would make the show infinitely more enjoyable.

That's why I said slapstick comedy not real comedy... lol
