I had a little 'geek out' moment when they cut to the Persuader and his atomic axe.

Is that one legion kid really going to say the 'S' word?

All for the sake of saying the "S-word"? Lana did that right way in the Pilot.

Waffling on about how important Lana is, not Lois as it should be.
To be fair, Lana was a member of the Legion. They're just protecting their own.

Re: Geek out Smallville moment!!

I just want that final scene of Welling in the outfit flying off.

I know it's recently been said not likely to occur do to conflict with the films, but since the Superman films are in flux atm, 15 seconds of him in the damn outfit can't cause that much of a problem, FFS!

Re: Geek out Smallville moment!!

^ Never going to happen not because of the films but because Welling has said he refuses to wear the costume and has veto power over his clothing on the show. He talked about it in an interview with Carson Daly a few years ago.

If the show wasn't so far along now, I'd fire Welling and hire someone willing to play the damned role.

I can just imagine Zachary Quinto showing up in JJ's office, refusing to wear the pointed ears because it'll jeopardise his career. Oh, no, wait, I can't because Quinto is a professional.

Re: Geek out Smallville moment!!

^ From what was said in the interview he only got this power because of the episode from season three (Whisper) where he had to wear glasses. They had negative feedback from women with that choice to put him in the glasses and Welling was able to negotiate into his contract an override of clothing options for his character. That's also why Clark got away from plaid.

Negative feedback has an effect on Smallville ? Or is it just negative feedback from women ?

Most of the Smallville viewers I've ever encountered have wanted Lana gone, we've only just gotten rid of her and then they bring her back!

There are a million things wrong with Smallville to fix before you get to Clark wearing glasses in one episode!

^ I don't really know which type of feedback works to be honest. I just remember it from the interview.

(I agree about Lana btw).
