Re: Smallville 8x07 "Identity" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILER>

The end was a shocker! Chloe, like the Queen song, "Death on Two Legs!" Whoa! I rated the ep "average." Liked how Clark got Oliver out of his funk.

But is anyone sick of Tess yet? She's a lukewarm version of Lex -- or should I say, putting lipstick on Lex doesn't make her Lex! I would've loved it if they figured a way to put Darkseid in Smallville. Like Zod taking over Lex, or like how in the comics, Doctor Bedlam can project his mind into other bodies. Imagine a Mr. Darkside of Apokolips Inc., acquiring Luthorcorp in a hostile takeover.

One of my favorite parts in YEARS.
That was pretty damn good. I've said in the past that Chloe would die to protect Clark's secret, now it appears she's willing to kill as well.

She certainly was channelling her inner Brainiac.
It might have been in a cute blond package, with Chole wasn't the one who killed him.

I'm hoping Chloe is going insane and that Clark will have to reluctantly kill her ... or put her in the Phantom Zone forever. (Well, if anyone ever IS in the Phantom Zone forever).

Wouldn't Clark have been better off getting Bart instead of Oliver? Since, you know, he can actually do the speed thing?

If they bring him on I think they should base him on the Dark Side Club storyline. I think that would probably be the easiest way to bring him into the Smallville universe and save money by keeping it in Metropolis.

Re: Smallville 8x07 "Identity" - Discuss/Grade <SPOILER>

Let's see.. we got Chloe Sullivan the liar who can't be honest with her soon to be HUSBAND! We got Chloe Sullivan the MURDERER! And I know the excuses will fly about brainiac but quite frankly Brainiac WOULD NOT go out of his way to protect Clark like that.


Overalla pretty darn good epeisode though. I'm really enjoying the season though I still think it lacks something big without the Luthors.


On another note it REALLY annoys me when they go out of their way to put down the abilities and uch of other heroes. I have WAY more respect for a Batman or Green Arrow type that actually REALLY risk their lives every time they suit up than a pretty much indestructible superhero. It takes WAY more courage and guts to do what Ollie does that what Clark does.

OK I just watched it on DVR (God I hate working nights!!!) and I gotta say WOW!!! I loved it for the ending alone. I wish I could have watched with you guys, I really enjoy being able to watch and crack jokes with you folks at the same time. I'm glad I bought this laptop. Any way next week looks awesome as well and I have the night off!!! Also I was thinking about who else they could bring in as a "bad" guy. How about Lobo? Some super powered biker dude could be funny. I always enjoyed Supes and him trading insults in the comics and on Justice League. Just a thought.

Ha! I really enjoyed Lobo's appearances on the Superman cartoon -- Brad Garrett's voice alone as "the main man" was priceless. But in live action, who could play him? Maybe Randy "Macho Man" Savage! -- RR

Well, I don't think it was supposed to be Brainiac in the strictest sense.

As I said before, it seems that Chloe is beginning to show signs of schizophrenia. It's almost as if the Brainiac "program" (if you will) is slowling overwriting her subconscious. And, as for now, all it can do is redirect her moral compass.

Or, the other thing is they could simply be going for the tired "absolute power corrupts" motif which I alluded to before with the Dark Willow comparison. You know, ever the side kick but gets a taste of real power and wants to go play in the Bullies' sandbox.

Overalla pretty darn good epeisode though. I'm really enjoying the season though I still think it lacks something big without the Luthors.
No kidding. They lost the two best actors on the show and replaced them with more model-turned-actor-wannabes.

On another note it REALLY annoys me when they go out of their way to put down the abilities and uch of other heroes. I have WAY more respect for a Batman or Green Arrow type that actually REALLY risk their lives every time they suit up than a pretty much indestructible superhero.

Well the drama in Superman isn't supposed to be about him risking his life or any of that. Unfortunately, the Smallville people usually fail to grasp that concept. Non the less, there have been several times over the run of the show where Clark legitimately put his life on the line to save someone. And I don't mean with the krypto-freaks of the week either.

Looks like we saw some Brainiac 2 surfacing there at the end.
Chloe has switched on the 'Automatic Updates for Brainiac' feature. I suspect a 'Service Pack' download is just over the horizon.

In truth, I knew that guy was dead as soon as I saw Chloe wearing black gloves. Still, very good episode. I'm enjoying Season 8 very much.

I thought it was above average. A lot of character driven moments with Clark/Chloe/Jimmy and Clark/Ollie. The ending with Chloe really blew me away! A very nice twist in the storyline!

Does anybody realize this? Even if he didn't get his name yet or hasn't shown his face Superman has entered Smallville world! The world knows about him now!
When was the last time Smallville did something that moved the show so much toward the general Superman mythos?
