Kristen has turned down requests, so far, for her to return.

Glad to see ya NX!

I kinda understand why KK & MR don't want to come back...but it sucks because it is the 10th & final season.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Harvest" - Discussion and Spoilers

I just watched it on DVR and I thought it was a really solid, standalone episode. Something that this series has never been really good at doing. A HUGE improvement over last week's episode.

Its nice to see the effects of the meteor show outside of Smallville. Too often the world of this show is so well.... small. With little sense of a world outside the melodrama of the current cast members.

Streamlining the cast this season has been a great benefit. Allowing for more strongly defined A and B plots. Like continuing tonight's with Tess and ALEXander, which I find very effective.

I'm liking this show more, and I've been pondering the blasphemous possibility that it's because of Chloe's absence.

As a casual viewer of the series in the past I always liked Allison. But the actual character of Chloe has been written very inconsistent. She has been either spouting awkward plot exposition or playing out whatever random gimmick the writers had saddled her with. Like being a meteor freak or being possessed by Brainiac , or whatever.

Her absence has certainly simplified things.

I am glad they didn't add anyone to the main cast this season.

Re: Smallville: 10x07 "Harvest" - Discussion and Spoilers

I agree. While I am not yet sold on this version of Darkseid, this approach has had a great benefit of not having a new "Big Bad" as main cast member.

Both Davis Bloome/Doomsday and Zod where diluted by overexposure. They had to be function as the main villain of those seasons but also as supporting cast members. Appearing in many episodes to justify their presence. But only resulted in their arcs being too drawn out and taking time from other cast members.

Better to save the Darkseid characters to episodes that actually further those episodes. So that the so called "filler episodes" can focus on the other characters.

I've always liked Chloe, so I can't agree with you there. For me, she is as much Smallville as Clark.

I didn't mind this episode. The "cult" townspeople thing was a bit contrived but since it was a Halloween episode, I let it pass.
I did think they should have made a bigger deal out of Clark saving Lois from the fire even though he had no powers. Also, it would have been more impressive had he flown up in the sky with Lois rather than just zipping away at super speed.

Hell, he could have even just done a leap tall buildings in a single bound jump move. Flying up to the heaven would have impressed those people a lot more. Oh well.
