My sole S8 review! Not very deep...



This episode reminded me of my enjoyment of Zor-El in S7. As in: it was completely over-the-top and sometimes very funny (although probably not on purpose.)

- Sam Witwer is enjoying himself so much. I love when actors accept SV dialogue for what it is and he chews into bad dialogue like it's delicious candy. The scene where he tells Chloe that he tried staring at her photographs and fondling loose strands of her hair and still couldn't calm down, is classic. Why not try wearing her underwear on your head or drinking her bathwater? I was hoping that Chloe would follow the trail of rose petals & find Doomsday busily eating the roses.
- Every time Davis signaled imminent loss of control by giving a distressed little grunt, I lost it.
- Jimmy, Oliver and Doomsday in that basement scene killed me - you know you're not exactly dealing with a Mensa meeting when Oliver is the most sensible person in the room. When Oliver says accusingly: "I've seen your horns!"...hahahaha! Finally a line to match Toxic's "The mosquitos were eating me ALIVE!"
- Oliver proves his genius by offering Jimmy a job after "seeing him in action."' Jimmy's action consisted of: pestering the invincible monster, promptly getting himself knocked out and Oliver nearly killed
- Somewhere Lana is deeply pissed that Chloe is managing to out-martyr her.
- Yay for Vancouver actors in bit parts: one of Oliver's lunch companions managed to hijack the scene from Oliver and Jimmy without saying a word with his "who is this cretin?" reaction shot.
- Tom looked exceptionally pretty in this episode, especially when glaring at Oliver at the end. This was a good episode for boys looking fiercely at other boys.

Can the finale possibly be this fun? Shall we place bets on whose shirts come off? I'm hoping for a Clark/Oliver/Dooms trifecta!

I think he's planning on having the Justice League use Jimmy as professional bait. I mean, he managed to draw the ire of both Lex and Doomsday; just think of all the bad guys they could catch by sending Jimmy out to annoy them!

I'm mostly amused that SV!Ollie is righting the wrongs of his comic book counterpart by paying attention to the junkie side kick character instead of ignoring him. He's not going to let Jimmy go through what Speedy did!

Yes, maybe Oliver is a genius after all!

That dream/nightmare at the beginning? Was totally unprepared for that ...

And yeah, Davis is uber obsessed ... holding her pictures? Strands of her hair? *shakes head*

And yeah, how did Oliver see Jimmy in action? Did I miss something?

Oh, I'm definitely hoping for shirtless!Clark ... *drools*

He saw Jimmy foolishly mouth off to Doomsday until Dooms punched him in the face. This does not qualify Jimmy as an action man IMO!

Ohmygod, what a bizarre episode!

I absolutely love your description here. You need to have a paying job writing reviews like this!

Somewhere Lana is deeply pissed that Chloe is managing to out-martyr her.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I'll bet she is!

Yay for Vancouver actors in bit parts: one of Oliver's lunch companions managed to hijack the scene from Oliver and Jimmy without saying a word with his "who is this cretin?" reaction shot.
Awesome.

I enjoyed this light and funny review!

Aw, thanks hon, you're so kind! I'll be interested to know what you think of this one: half the f-list loved it & the other half hated it!

I haven't seen this episode, and after reading other reviews I'm glad I didn't. But reading yours makes me wish I could go back and watch it with your points in mind!

I don't think I could have found a sense of humor on my own with this one.

I understand why people may have hated it. It's as if the producers have this sadistic streak and often, seems they may get together and say, "Let's see how we can piss off the fans this week!"

It just seems as if SV has gotten more and more outlandish and ridiculous, "freaks of the week" aside. It's no where near the same show it started out as.
