Chloe has switched on the 'Automatic Updates for Brainiac' feature. I suspect a 'Service Pack' download is just over the horizon. .
Actually, she just installed Brainiac Vista ... and look at the results.

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

This episode was great. Smallville has really improved.

They've really dived headfirst into the Superman mythos. While they are neatly sidestepping the Clark/Superman/recognizing thing by making Superman be in the shadows, everything else is there. Clark and Lois dynamic, Jimmy, Superman villains, the only thing missing is Lex, but in a weird way, without Lex to take so much of the spotlight, it gives stuff like the Clark/Lois romance, Jimmy/Clark/Lois trio, the secret identity, etc etc room to breathe.

By ditching Lana, and moving Clark to Metropolis,

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.
If you have so many problems with the show why do you still watch it?

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.

Red Ranger
Yeah sick of Tess.

Here's what I wish they'd done:

That assistant of Lex's last season, that was crushing on him and wanted it to be "we" and was knowing too much? Bring her back in charge this season.

WTF? you say? But Lex killed her? YES! Lex has a whole lab with clones somewhere. Whenever his assistant gets too upity, he can kill her, modify the program that sleep teaches the clones, and get a new one. The assistant can be Tess Mercer 2.0, 2.1, etc etc.

And don't tell us what's going on. Throughout the season she can get really obviously torn to shreds a couple times, and then be good as new the next ep. Keep us in the dark and let us figure it out.

It would have been totally the kind of thing Lex would do, it would be freaky sci fi, and I kind of liked the assistant last year, even though I can't remember her name.

Totally agree with you on that Othello. It's very easy to forget that Ollie (or Bruce Wayne) is mortal and that they're status as heroes rely on their special abilities that they've honed (intelligence, skill with a weapon, whatever). They're not bullet-proof and they don't have super-strength. They do what they do, despite the danger to themselves.

Although most of the ep was fairly weak, the ending is possibly the best shock Smallville has ever done. Love Chloe.

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

but Green Arrow is either stoned or Drunk, and Batman is psychotic, so it's not like either-one of them is responding sanely when given the option to stray from harms way?

Clark is acting like an idiot who CAN'T KEEP A SECRET. No Pokerface. He looked old this week. Real old.

So Chloe is experimenting on Davis before she takes over Clark?

Although is she Dark Chloe or out and out Brainiac?

Marvellous.

Well obviously this guy that can take memories is going to take Jimmys memories about Clark being the hero away from him by the end of the episode
I thought that was going to happen too.

On a lighter note: we just saw what the Smallville version of Batman looks like.
Good catch. I didn't see that one.

For the first time tonight, it dawned on me... Erica Durance looks and sounds like Sarah Palin. If they ever made a movie with her in it, she should play the part.

No.

I think she's more ruthless than Lex. Lex came off like a good man beaten down. This woman just comes off as pure evil.

I would've loved it if they figured a way to put Darkseid in Smallville.
I still remember when someone suggested Michael Ironside in a KISS-like costume. That could work.

Anyway, SUPER episode.

- I like what we've seen of "Superman". That image on top of the building was pretty cool. Looks like Smallville could potentially make Superman look quite good.

- I don't know why Clark was uncomfortable zipping up Lois.

- Clark going to Tess to try and get himself off the story was a dumb move. He was just bringing more attention to himself by doing that.

- Is this the end of Clark's blue and red outfits? Is he gonna be Batman now?

He was probably concentrating to keep from setting her back on fire.

I watched Smallville for the first time since Lois came onto the show on Thursday. I was very impressed. I'm going to be looking around and seeing what the big mythology episodes are and catching up.

No. She doesn't. Cloris Leachman looks more like Sarah Palin.

So no one notices Chloe walking out of that guy's hospital room?

As much crazy shit as goes on, you'd think they'd have security cameras.

No security cameras, no questions raised, no questions asked, and since the writers hope you forget things during commercial breaks, a week between episodes is a license to ignore everything!

After all, Chloe was pronounced dead and is now walking around with no questions whatsoever being asked.
