Smallville: Echo Review [Oct. 16th, 2009|09:08 pm]

Brief comments *spoilery*

- Opening teaser was awesome! Clark using his smarts & a bunch of powers & saving everybody. Excellent rescue! And there was even some sunshine and a scene shot on location! Good Smallville, here's a cookie!

- The nerdy witness who just wanted attention was very endearing. I want him to turn up at every Metropolis crisis situation, pining for Clark's attention.

- We're supposed to be entranced by Clark's insight into Lois's thoughts but I actually felt more emotional for all the poor Queen company investors stressing about their money.

- Lois gets her best line of the season: "You can't lose me, Smallville. I have the internet on my phone!"

- Toyman is completely awesome for a) writing an insulting speech for Oliver and b) forcing him to confess to Lex's murder or get blown up real good. Bravo! If I could write a speech for Oliver that would be the precise one I'd choose. It's looping in my head right now! Toyman, you are welcome back any time!

- Of course, this being Smallville, Clark has to wreck it by apologizing to Oliver for ignoring his epic man-pain. And then Oliver looked in a window and - DAMNIT! - there was a stupid fake!Lex reflected there. Stop using fake Lexes!!!

Better than I expected and the last ep. I'll see live for a month.

STOP teasing us with the fake!Lex images - its too depressing
Fake!Lex looks nothing like our beautiful Lex!!!

Smallville really lacks focus now that the strong foil (Lex) to Clark (Superman) is gone. Clark is really lost. And these smaller characters like Oliver and the small villans like Toyman are trying to cover up the fact that there is no focus to the plots anymore. There is no 'end game'.
The absence of the Clex dynamic leaves a big hole...manor scenes always make me sad now because it feels wrong to see the manor without Lex walking through the door.
