A Smallville Carol. Interesting - an exercise in 'how old can Tom Welling be and still play a High School sophomore'? ...
I liked this A Christmas Carol approached, since Clark was concerned about the darkness inside himself, his character being like a potential Ebenezer Scrooge being shown his past, present and future in this final season of the series makes sense.

I thought the future scene of Lois Lane in the helicopter falling off the Daily Planet being saved by Superman nod to the exciting impressive scene from the 1978 Superman The Movie was poignant.

I don't know if that scene was poignant but it was a pretty nice nod.

I agree, I wanted it to be longer and so much more like the John Williams score from Superman The Movie. Maybe, in the last episode of the series we will see the same scene played out much more grand?

Well that would suppose that they would bother repeating a scene? They don't need to do that. Lois already knows who Clark is. They've essentially had their first movie, the meaning of that scene from the film is now undermined and rendered useless in Smallville. I don't think they'll be revisiting it again in the finale. I'm sure they'll have Superman encounter Lois in some new way.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

This episode blew my theory out of the water the that FOS would mindwipe the entire planet to get around people knowing Clark's face. I guess a pair of HRG does the trick.

They're not doing any mind wipes. If they were going to do that they would have found some way to already do that.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Finally got around to seeing it. I thought it was good despite the lack of action. Needed a little more of a bang to be sure. Especially for a 200th episode.

Chloe really should have been back for the reunion but I like how she had a big presence there anyway and that she was treated with the respect at the reunion that Clark has rarely treated her with. I don't think Pete graduated and did Lana even graduate? I thought Bug Boy was killed...wasn't he an old friend of Clark and Pete according to that episode?

I enjoyed the trip into the future. Clark needed to be put back on track for the 100th time on this show and this time he needed his future self to tell him what a douche he was. The Daily Planet seems to exist in its own time where newspapers are still big.

Typical undeserved self-importance by Lois...I'm not surprised she expected people to remember her. It's nice to see her get treated at the reunion exactly how she deserved to be treated.

Nice to see James Marsters back as Brainiac...he seems to be everywhere on TV. Hawaii Five-O, Caprica, Smallville, etc.

Blaming Clark's guilt fetish was a logicial way to explain the "darkness" in his heart. Though Brainiac had it all wrong...it wasn't Pa Kent's death that led to Clark's guilt. He's always been that way. This is the same moron who blamed himself for the meteor shower that, as an infant, he had absolutely no control over whatsoever.

Seems like the 200th episode brought even more posters here.

BTW, I did find the guidance counselor bit to be an amusing wink to the villain of the week format of the show.

I love Blue Mountain High.

Season II started last night.

No Sam Jones III.

Not in the credits either.

Poor bastards been dropped like David Arquette.

I liked it that Spider-Boy got his shit sorted.

To be fair, the drug scandal and the resulting danger of up to 20 years in prison didn't exactly help his career (little reminder).

You know, I have a feeling they wouldn't have brought him back even if it wasn't for his problems. It took them over three years to bring him back and it was for a forgettable freak-of-the-week storyline.

Re: Smallville 10x04 (#200!!!) "Homecoming" - Discussion and Spoilers

Ah, yes, but apart from the typo, I was talking about blue Mountain State, the sitcom about football where Sam had second billing earlier this year which aired after the scandal but I am now beginning to wonder if BMS might not have been filmed well before the news broke.

I was adding to his continuing fall from grace.

The pitty is that the lady who played his girlfriend was hilarious and that her character was probably dropped when Sam's was demolished...

But Blue Mountain State still almost stars Smallville's very own Aquaman!

This weeks episode as all about Aquaman trying to get to the bottom of who probed him during a scrimmage.

I am thinking that Arthur could carry an episode of smallville by himself as well as Oliver or Jimmy ever could,

As has been pointed out, Pete showing up here wouldn't work. You don't go to the reunions of high schools you didn't graduate from.

The two kids who were running the Torch got a text message from her near the end.

What did Brainiac do to her? I wasn't clear on that part.

^ i guess he brainwashed her, or at least removed her emotions and feelings about Clark
