Michael & John disagree on Lionel's parenting skills! [Nov. 1st, 2011|09:31 pm]

Happy Birthday to ariss_tenoh! Hope you're enjoying your travels!

christina_kat posted a video from the Smallville Boxset, a featurette about fathers & sons. The first part's a bit goofy (They needed a psychologist to explain that Jor El is a "cold" father? He lives in an ice palace! ) The Luthor half is funnier, with Glover offering his usual tongue-in-cheek defense of Lionel. Michael: "Lionel was an awful, mean Daddy. He was!"

Breaking In Update: Odette Annable gave an interview which seems to indicate Michael will be back on the show: "First of all, Michael Rosenbaum is a genius, he really has taken Dutch and made something very special. I love their relationship, but seeing more of that love triangle would be good. Melanie and Cameron might become a Jim and Pam situation -- which takes years and years to develop. She has a soft spot for Cameron even though he's like the gay best friend for now. She may develop feelings down the road."

I love how JG always rationalises Lionel's behaviour and defends him and tried to make Lionel make sense even when the writing didn't. 'More love!' Heh.

The Luthor half of that vid is definitely the best part! The eulogising of Jonathan in the first half made me eyeroll and yeah, some great insight from the psychologist there!

Good to hear that it sounds like Dutch will be back and also that it might take a while for Mel and Cam to get together - I was worried that they might put them together soon, which would pretty much remove Dutch's purpose on the show at the moment (plus he'd be heartbroken!)

And way to completely ignore Martha! The writers seem determined to forget that early season Jor-El was a kidnapper and exploded an FBI agent, just for kicks.

It's hard to imagine that JG was originally only going to be in one episode. Thank goodness they changed that! He & Michael were just magic together.

I don't see much chemistry between Mel & Cam. Odette said in an interview that she & BH have known each other since they were kids and it seems like a believable friendship, but not a high voltage relationship. She has more chemistry with Dutch and Cam has more sparks with Cash I think! (Although the only BI slash-fic I've seen posted was Dutch/Cash!)

I looked but I couldn't find it. It was posted back in May, so maybe the author took it down, or marked it as private.
