They could have been playing hungry hungry hippo and the general audience would have been oblivious.

Re: SMALLVILLE |Season 9 Episode 17 | Checkmate

A 48 minute episode and you guys are obsessing over a 2 second shot of a chessboard?? Who gives a fuck?

This episode was light years better than the piece of crap last week. I like the comic book style action sequences. My favorite was the lights blinking on and off where Clark and Chloe disappear during the blink.
Another cool scene was seeing MM on the screen and Clark whizzing away and appearing there a few seconds later.
Overall, I thought the episode moved along well and kept you interested. The only real disappointment is knowing that the climax of this season will be about the Zod plotline which has been very underwhelming thus far.

I think she lost it when she was infected by Brainiac.
Really? I thought that she lost it when the writers forgot about it.

Now, that would be awesome. An shady government organization that center's its theme around Hungry Hungry Hippos. What would they call it?

I know it sounds silly. I put up with Smallville's numerous departures from Superman tradition, but I go nuts if it gets chess wrong.
