Smallville review: Dominion and new Clex pic! [Apr. 29th, 2011|09:39 pm]

*spoilers for Dominion and a finale pic within.



My 5 second review of last week's episode
(No offense to the great guest star or Tom's direction but that script was a World of Dull.)

I liked this one a lot better. It was directed by Justin Hartley and after also enjoying the episode he wrote last year, I may be a fan of the Hartley oeuvre. He does not try and paint Oliver in a heroic light. In "Sacrifice", Oliver actually walks away from a seemingly knocked-out Zod and makes a a phone call. Never turn your back on the super villain! In this ep, Clark won't take him to the Phantom Zone so Oliver jumps on his back and goes anyway, then starts whining like a kid on a road trip, all like: "It's cold. There's phantoms. I want to leave."

Zod gets a fabulously campy intro, wearing a robe and snake and you wonder if he rushed into position when he knew Clark was coming or had to hold the pose for a while. There's some initial roughing up of Clark but what Zod actually wants is a boyfriend and he's prepared to share his kingdom with Clark. When Clark rebuffs him, Zods hits on Oliver, saying of Clark: "Ultimately I realized we had nothing in common." Yeah, try and spin it that way, honey! He also tells Oliver that he bears the mark of Darkseid and reveals Oliver's deepest fear: that Clark won't want to see him any more.

Adding to the general homo-tasticness: Clark and Oliver in cute little gladiator outfits (Oliver's predictably is sluttier) and a prolonged and enthusiastic close-up of Callum Blue's crotch.

I like episodes where Clark is outsmarts the bad guys and rescues everyone, in this case without his powers. Also Tom's hair was stunning tonight.

(And I'm not generally schmoopy over Clois but their last scene was a knockout.)

Two weeks until Lex returns and reclaims His Man! That's Lex's "Aw baby, don't be mad, I still love you!" face.

I loved Clark's hair in the phantom zone too!!
He was the most stylish boy there!

I am kind of sad about the finale - it's weird that I am having an emotional response to this series ending, but I do feel sad... it was a great series in its prime.
I feel it too....it's closing the book on something I really loved.

Two weeks 'til Clex reunion!

Has JF been ill? I saw a tweet that he was back from recuperating?

I hope it is as epic as we hope it will be! Does Michael have a bald cap on?

Joe had surgery on his shoulder, he tore his ACL in a mountain biking accident.

He actually had posted a twitpic of himself just before surgery, showing his misshapen shoulder but also a good expanse of his bare chest and a little peek of his right nipple. Which was very unusual and out-of-character for him--as he seemed to avoid showing too much skin on SGA. They must have had him on the good drugs.

Anyway, so of course people tweeted him things like, "Thanks for showing some cleavage," which personally I thought was tacky at best, and crude and insensitive at worst--I mean the guy was about to go into surgery, for Pete's sake!

So in his latest tweet, he said, "My new breasts look great."

He must still be on the really good drugs!

Ouch! Poor JF - glad he's on the mend. Mountain biking is fun but it's so easy to take a header.

He does! So his sexy head is a little er, bulgier.

*insert quotes of your entire review here*

You described all my fav bits perfectly!

That PZ has some faboo clothing designers. Everything there is black and dingy but they somehow found Clark a red cape to wear!

You just know there was a Phantom stylist who loved dressing Clark up, artfully mussing that hair!

Aw what a lovely clexy moment. CLark is clearly pissed Lex left him for so long but a nice hot shower and a blowjob should take care of him being miffed!!! Lex is back and they are where they BELONG!!! In each other's arms. I'm a happy woman!

Yes both Clark and Oliver looked delicious in their little outfits tonight. Any one have any gladiator stories that need covers now? I loved the red cape and Zod's crotch shot. perfect!! i did get a slight homoerotic vibe to tonight too go figure!

I wasn't looking forward to Zod but I was very happy with his return and defeat by a powerless Clark. Ummm what was I saying? Ohhh sorry was staring at the above photo. *drools*

Yes, your interpretation is very believable! Lex is angling for a kiss there, I CAN TELL!

Based on his directorial choices, apparently Justin 'ships Clollie, Clod and er, Zollie. And I hope Clark kept his gladiator outfit because Lex would like it very much.

The Clex pic is delicious! *melts* I'm so torn by the prospect of SV's final episode: I love getting the chance to see Lex and Clark together again, but I'm terrified TPTB will do something horrible to Lex's character (and it will be their very last chance to do so, so you KNOW they'll want to). *flails* Reassure me it won't be as bad as I'm afraid it will!

I can't! I sort of dread what the writers came up with - but the consolation is the boys look gorgeous and always have chemistry so hopefully that will make it watchable?

I have to say Callum did a much better Zod as Original Recipe Zod, in Nu!Zod's Body. I actually felt that menace. And on mythology! Obv Zod is Cain, but he'll never see it that way and oh! Clark wearing a red cape made my day!

It was a good idea to blend the two Zods!

Even in the PZ, he is chic!
