Above Average, barely...

It was kind of boring for the first hour and a half. Then Darkseid and Apokolips are defeated with one flying super punch and one flying super shove a piece. And Green Arrow takes out the minions with one split arrow attack. Lame.

CGI Superman was also lame. But at least we got a few minutes of Superman at all.

Maybe I should have voted Average after all.

Well, he did kinda revealed himself to the public when he flew past to get rid of Apokolips. Or do you mean actually going before a camera in the costume and speaking to the public as Superman?
Right, I was referring to an official introduction through the eyes of the media. It didn't have to be a long and drawn out scene; a simple "Great interview last night, Clark" by Lois would've sufficed. Then have a few of them stand over Tess' grave. I think the writers decided not to do that since it would complicate people's perception of Clark/Supe and how much they looked alike before the glasses.

But Tess is going to come back as an 80 foot mecha.

And if they finally kill her, then her ghost is going to eat her brother.

I decided on Below Average

Really, they needed a reveal of Superman to Metropolis. After pushing Apokolips away, he should have descended to that crowd on the ground, and stood there looking like superman, and then do the iconic one handed up on the air fly off, with a wave.

^ Yeah...I wasn't looking for a speech or a wave but maybe just a hover over the crowd after he deals with the planet. Instead of cutting to the crest after Clark rips his shirt I would have preferred cutting to a Daily Planet newspaper headline stating "Superman Arrives" or something cheesy like that. After the Blur business I would assume that the people of Metropolis are stupid enough in this show to assume that this guy is another character completely which would have been the intention.

It was good, uplifting, not perfect.

I got a real kick out of the stuff at the end... it seemed odd seeing Clark as Superman, as he realy has been Clark for ten years.

But my biggest issue, on reflection, is they tried to deliver the story into the films too much. They'd really gone their own way... killing Lex and Jimmy, Lois knowing he's from Krypton etc. And I'd accepted they were their own universe.

Then at the end, they just kind of undid all that so they could tie in with the movies.

Jimmy... I don't get it at all. That's the bit that confused me most.

But overall, I enjoyed it.

^ You just love spelling things wrong don't you? Also why did you repeat your question about Clark and Lois's wedding when I answered you the first time Friday night? Do you actually read through the posts on the page before you post?

Jimmy's younger brother Jimmy turned up at Jimmy's funeral.

The lad looked like he was 10.

Lois mentioned Vince Lombardi a couple weeks ago.

That made me smile.

Haven't watched any smallville in ages but i tuned in for this. It was about what I expected really. My only disappointment was no Rosenbaum/Glover scene.

^ There wouldn't have been a Rossenbaum/Glover scene since Glover was playing the alternate universe Lionel.


@Guy...do you mean Steve Lombard? Or the Green Bay Packers famous coach?

I can completely understand why there was no full shot of Clark in the suit after all the hassle that the 2006 movie's suit got. That said, it would have been nice for him to do an appearance to the crowd.

My other gripe is at least Lex's childhood memories should have remained intact. What motivation does he have now?

Re: Smallville10x21&22 "Finale" Discuss/Grade

Even comic book Lex has his memories of Smallville...he just has chosen to completely ignore them. Only Lex's childhood memories of being in Smallville were wiped, not all of them. As to what motivates him...Lex is still the psychopathic/megalomaniac he has always been, just without the Smallville memories. It kind of was like an anti-mirror for Martha's comment about Clark not forgetting his time in Smallville. For him those are what defined him. Lex doesn't need his Smallville memories to define him. I think that was another point of that scene, but of course I'm delusional so what I know?

Smallville Finale - What's the DOOR SCENE?

I just read an interview on TheFutonCritic.com by a Producer.

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/interv...13_smallville/

At the end of the interview, he mentioned the "door scene".

He says: "In the end, Peterson teased one last moment that fans of "Smallville" (and I suspect Superman in general) will more than likely enjoy immensely. "There's a very good scene with a door," he said. "It's probably one of everybody's favorite scenes in the show... there's one shot that is just like the 'Smallville' shot. You'll see it and you'll be like 'This is what we needed in the finale!' You'll know it the second you see it..."

Was he talking about the VERY LAST SCENE where Clark opens the door, rips open his shirt with the "S" as he walks to the camera? Or was he talking about something else? Just curious. It seems odd that he would give away the very last scene in the interview, although they did over-hype it. And what was the "Smallville shot" he talks about?
