Re: Smallville: 10x08 "Abandoned" - Discussion and Spoilers

We're just joking around Buck...that's the fun of this show. I don't know that Lois and Clark being engaged now is too soon. I have friends that got engaged six months after their first date. We know why this is happening because they messed stuff up with Lana and Clark and prolonged Clark getting together with Lois.

Re: Smallville: 10x08 "Abandoned" - Discussion and Spoilers

Only idiots are surprised by Smallville.

Okay, sometimes I'm surprised by their gall, but very very rarely is anyone with an IQ above 80 plussed by Kelly and Brian's super "cule" revelatory money shots.

Only Jetfire has questioned the possibility of incest?

Hmm?

Was this an accident? Or was Lionel playing Highfather's part in the son swapping peace pact between Darksied and new Genesis to save Earth? As a Veritas Conspiracy that is feasible if not for the fact that Lionel changed his mind and the world didn't end if he was bluffing that he had allies on Krypton? If so that would mean that Julian or Lex (I doubt both?) was actually Darkseids child.

Julian's death would cancel any nonagression pact and urge Lionel into geting his daughter back from this off world scum?

And if Julian was just an evil dark god Lillian was forced to raise as her own even though it was probably telepathically broadcasting "evil" and "crazy" like how no one seemed to make it out the omen movies alive, no wonder Lillian killed her "son" and killed herself.

Off topic but, are you ever going to fix the quote in your signature? That missing "where" is damn annoying.

She loved him...and he loved her and I don't think it was familiar.

I'd put an exclamation mark after the first roads too.

That quote could have been lifted form a production meeting about Iron Man III.

Did Clark come back for that little girl or did he save her in OffScreenVille?

Ugh! Clark could have zipped her out of there to Ollie's and explained it and got back to the orphanage before anyone noticed. Bad writing.

Re: Smallville: 10x08 "Abandoned" - Discussion and Spoilers

At first I didn't know where this episode was going, it was chock full of stuff. However, by the end it was a very good episode, mainly because it was so stuffed. I'm glad that the writers, unencumbered by having to worry about another season, are finally getting on with it and pushing character progression forward.

Though I had hoped that Tess was Lex's mom more than a sister, it does make more sense-I suppose-to go that route if you wanted her to be part of the family. Curious as to why Lionel would sign off on handing her over to Granny Goodness. Look forward to them addressing that in a future episode.

It was also cool seeing the Female Furies, though in typical Smallville fashion the fights were too short. But it was still good seeing them and the actress who played GG was very creepy. Liked how all Darkseid's minions linked up at the end. Wonder if Kalibak is going to show up. And I also liked the Jor-El and Lara cameo, plus Terri Hatcher. I've always enjoyed how Smallville honors and incorporates aspects of previous incarnations. I do wonder though if they've ever used any actors or ideas from the Superboy TV show of the 90s? Anybody know?

Seen two episodes of that and ran.

Christine Willes has lost a lot of weight since dead like me or even Reaper.

Very healthy and if not for that her hair turned silver (for the part?) I'd say that it makes her look younger.

I know Noel Neill, Lois Lane in The Adventures of Superman, is 90 but it'd be great if they could find some way to feature her somehow. I think they've had most everyone else associated with TV/Movie Supermen.
I'm still waiting for Sarah Douglas (Ursa from the first two Christopher Reeve movies).

Good episode, though. Maybe one two many soppy speeches, but they did a really good job of capturing the essence of Granny Goodness and the Furies. If anything, I think the Smallville Granny is even creepier than the original Kirby version.

You give them too much credit. Clark will superspeed in and sucker punch doomsday.

Doomsday- Looks like doomsday's blasting off again!!!!!!!!!!!

Was it ever really stated that Lex and Tess got it on or is that just an assumption? My recollection is they never really came out and said they got together in anything other than business.
