Beyond, not only was the story a rip-off and there were huge logic gaps throughout, they never mention this "darkness" anymore. Why are they dropping hints some episodes and completely ignoring this Darkseid subplot in others. After the long layoff it would have been smart to mention the "darkness" to those who may have forgotten it.

millean, sorry pal, already promised my extra to a friend.

lazarus, I assume you're not talking to me, but if you are I watch it because I have a working contract to do so, and report on it. I can't write I thought it was good if I thought it sucked... and it usually does.

GrandSophy, you're right. The way these characters interact at times is embarrassing. If they were 12 it would be strange, but they're all in their mid twenties (and somehow Clark immediately got a job as a reporter for the biggest paper in the US with only a high school degree.)

Comments were directed at no one directly Joe, not at you at all. I understand you have a job to do. My problem is expectations. People here have this expectation and it will NEVER get fulfilled. Here is a hint people, lower your standards. You will be less disappointed. Seriously. TV is never going to get the comic book translations correct, I am also an AVID fan of the comics, and it disheartens me to see them f it up constantly. But I found if I just let it go and try not to really focus on the suckiness I can enjoy the good parts of the show more. Yeah I know there are more plot holes than a screen window. Yeah I know the originality is non existant, and I know that if I ever EVER saw the writer in person, I would completely bitch slap him for all the puns and cliches. God that was bad. But all that aside, I know the show is bound for the end soon and thus I enjoy what I can.

If so many of you guys are really into this stuff and in the entertainment biz, how about getting a movement and changing this landscape of crap? Personally I work in IT, never ever wanted to do show biz, but those who do can make a difference, how about someone stepping up and leading a charge to respect the material and the fans?

I had no problem with them all interacting whilst hooked up.  Again, it's shoddy writing, but I just sort of assumed they had some kind of "Matrix-y" system in place. 

As far as everything else...man, these writers just don't try to make anything coherent.  I'd love to try and talk some sense into them, Joe, but there are still people out there who get pissed at me when I go to Barnes & Noble and move all the Bibles to the Fiction section.  YOU CAN'T HAVE A RATIONAL CONVERSATION WITH PEOPLE WHO IGNORE THE FACTS!

okonomiyaki4000 your statement is insulting and unacceptable. I disliked Smallville 90210 as it was in the beginning. There are people who hate Smallville because it doesn't follow canon. Well this is earth Sml. This isnt the story of Superman but rather the story of Clark Kent. Smallville does not have the rights to SUPERMAN. I think DC will allow it for the ending (like 15 seconds). I have enjoyed the bits of DC universe that appear. I agree they take a story like ZOD and drag it out forever, but this is a soap opera and that's the pace. I often hope for better than what i get. and “Collateral,” was painful to watch.

I agree with ever negative comment in the review. I would add, this is the end of the last season, your best should be presented, there are no episodes left for weak stories. I was hoping more of Black Canary, Manhunter, impulse, Supergirl heck even stargirl (The fact that Kara got the handle of Supergirl before Superman speaks volumes)

I just watched this on my iPhone since my DVR decided not to record it.  Immediately after watching I would have said I enjoyed it, even though I noticed many of the negative points Joe made.  It's only after reading this review that I thought it was pretty bad.  I guess if I sat down and wrote them all down as Joe has to, I would have disliked the episode from the start.  But most of the time I give those negatives 2 seconds of thought and let the show keep going.  As long as it's entertaining me, I'll go with it.  And even when it's mediocre, Smallville still manages to entertain me.  The one thing I couldn't ignore in this episode, and I know it's been said already, was all the damned puns!  If it was 1 or 2 I could forgive the writers and chuckle but they were flying left and right.  It was stupid writing.

It sucks that this was the episode I payed 3 bucks to download.

Jakester 2/11/2011 8:19:23 AM

Ouch, ddiaz28!  My DVR didn't record it either for some reason.  Maybe it thought it was a "rerun" because it was supposed to be on the week before.

Umm.  I enjoyed it.  So lynch me. 

Smallville as a whole is steeped in inconsistency and a plot that takes more liberties than Lindsey Lohan.  They've completely effed up the DC universe side of it.  The actors are sometimes amazing and sometimes it feels like aliens have planted themselves in my brain. 

Aside from all that, it's still Superman!!!  And we all continue to tune in every week to see what's going to happen.
