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.

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.

Does Michael have a bald cap on?
He does! So his sexy head is a little er, bulgier.
