I thought it was above average. It was better than BSG and Lost in that it stayed true to what the show was and gave us what we wanted to see. Come on! We got to see more than just him taking out the suit and holding it up.
We got to see Superman. Sure he didn't have a big battle with Parademons but Darkseid has never even been on live action TV before. Here he was more about "the darkness" and Clark was their hope.
I thought it was great. People give this show too much crap. Look at all the cool things like the JSA and other DC things it has shown us when just a few years ago nothing like that would ever be on the air.
Remember when this show started...I think Spiderman was just out or just coming out. There were no tons of movies about every superhero.
I also thought the messed up Lex hand under the glove wasn't needed. We could just assume he wore that glove due to a kryptonite ring like in the comics.
I appreciated the fact that they weren't married 7 years later...this fits in with continuity where he is superman for a while first. I also liked that Ollie wasn't in the scene with the boy, maybe he is with Dinah, his real love in the comics.
Either way Chloe is awesome and I'm glad she was the bookends.
This was great. (Although the entire first hour could have been a previous episode and they could have lost oh, I don't know, about 5 or 6 of the dumb episodes this season like Hangover or Children of the Corn).
