Smallville – 2004 season

Written By: Gary on October 13, 2004 No Comment

So in someways I like the new season, but in others… It’s back to feeling like the first season, too many kryptonite monsters (i.e. Buffy the Kryptonite infected monster slayer). I was just starting to like Lois and now she seems to be off the show, I thought I saw her in some WB cast promos so I thought she’d be around a little longer.

The show definitely has more sex appeal. And uptight Clark just seems to be getting hit on/made out with/getting caught with too many women. While everyone else is lying to someone else about something. And it bugs me when Lana lies to Clark, they’ve got them set up as the destined lovers… (Even though we know he marries a different LL)

So to wrap it all up it’s kinda Buffy meets Smallville 90210. If you can handle it and keep track of the characters go for it!

But you have to love the slo-mo “bullet-time” effects when Clark rushes into action.

If you haven’t seen it at all here’s the brief synopsis (assuming you know that Clark=Smallville=Superman [someday]=Kal-El): Kal-El’s ships crashed 10 years ago mixed in with a meteor storm. Storm killed Lana’s parents, made Lex’s hair fall out, Kent’s found Clark. After 10 years the Kryptonite (which hurts Kal-El) has mutated things/people which tend to attack and the kids always save the day.

If you didn’t get the LL reference. We have Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor and Lionel Luthor. In the comics we also had Lori Lemaris, Linda Lee, ______ Lane (Lois’ sister) and many more. It’s a big old tradition.
