Clex in absentia [Nov. 22nd, 2008|01:36 pm]

Hey, I finally laid eyes on a "Merlin" boy in last night's excellent Doctor Who. (Do Brits really name their children Jethro?) He's cute. I like his DW hair cut better than his Merlin 'do.

James Gunn has said there will be two episodes of "PG Porn" airing in December. Hopefully, one or both will feature Michael!

For Clexers who aren't watching S8, "Bride" had two excellent scenes of Clark and Oliver bickering over Lex. Highly entertaining! Skip ahead to 1.55.

LOL so for months now, nothing in hell could convince me to watch *anything* SV, but now somehow you did. And it is - OMG, Chloe is marrying?! And looking hot in that bathrobe. And Clark is all... reasonable! And grown up! And a bit condescending to Ollie in a very Supermannish way. I like this. And the lover's spats they're having about Lex.

But it *is* still SV, because Chloe has apparently randomly forgotten Clark's secret, and there are stalkers. Reassuring, that.

Clark asked Jor-El to remove Chloe's knowledge of his secret to "protect her." This has led to a fannish eruption! I predict Chloe will get her memories back in a few episodes.

And Clark is all... reasonable! And grown up! And a bit condescending to Ollie in a very Supermannish way. I like this. And the lover's spats they're having about Lex.
After which, Ollie stormed off in a jealous snit anyway and shot an arrow through Lex's head. Except it turned out to be....a Lex mannequin!

Yay, I hope we get to see Michael's PG Porn soon!

Colin is so cute in DW! And yes, his hair is much better. I can't say I know of any real life Jethros though - bit 18th century!

Good lord, it looks like SV has got even worse in the episodes I haven't seen and made me dislike Oliver even more! But Clark clearly still loves Lex, so that's OK!

He is! Typical of an RTD script to have a luscious teenaged boy in the cast. His character disappointed me a little by joining in the pack mentality at the end, but still lovely to look at.

But Clark clearly still loves Lex, so that's OK!
Oliver's trying to get in the middle of Clex business and Clark isn't having it!

Jethro was a pretty cool character. His hair may be better than Merlin's but Merlin is just too adorable not to love. :)

lol Clark so clearly still loves Lex. Wonder if he didn't want Ollie to go after him because Clark has Lex hidden away on some private love island. ;)

I just haven't been able to get into S8. I watched the first 3 eps, but just haven't watched any more yet. I may get around to it eventually.

I'm anxiously awaiting "Merlin"'s arrival in Canada! I want to see cute boys and lances and people saying "prithee..."!

I like this theory! As Dawnybee says, Oliver is so the rebound boyfriend who doesn't know he's the rebound boyfriend and this is all going to end in tears!

Aw, thanks! I love that Oliver keeps delivering these moral high ground lectures to Clark but is perfectly willing to shoot Lex through the head. I hope Lana rats him out to Clark and there is further boy-drama!

I really appreciated Clark' line about "don't punish the son for the sins of the father." It's heartening to know Lionel isn't being completely sainitified.

Oliver was just crazy sauce in this ep. I know he has a 'ends-justify-the-means' policy, but ::killing:: Lex? Really?

As for Lana, it's just unfortunate we're back to the era of secrets and lies already. Who is she working with / for?

It's a realization I wish Clark had come to earlier, but it;s still good to hear.

Killing to "protect" Clark's secret officially puts him on moral par with Lionel and Edward Teague.

As for Lana, it's just unfortunate we're back to the era of secrets and lies already. Who is she working with / for?
I expect offscreen!Lex and/or Tess are forcing her to work for them, preserving her Eternal Victim status.

OMG! Tas, were you reading my mind??? I was just sitting here thinking "What's going on with Michael and PG Porn?"

Thanks! This brightens my day!

I think a "Very Peanus Christmas" may become annual holiday viewing!
