Thanks, I was worried that we were going to see some alien with floppy ears or something.

Is it me or was Lois' hair a shade darker? She looked stunning as ever though. The flirtation between her and the boyscout has started well. Should be a cool season.

Yeah it looks like she dyed it. I like it too, gave her a much more Lois look.

Remember that Clark is "friends" with Perry White who once told Clark he could pull strings at the DP to get Clark a job so maybe he went that route.


I'd forgotten about that, that makes as much sense as anything.

I agree, good opening ep and a lot of good set-up for things to come.

Lex's absence definitely has left a major void. He was the opposing force for everyone on the show and I don't think they'll be able to replace that. Clark and Chloe are the only pair of original characters left and the adult characters are all gone. So it's up to the younger group.

That being said, there was some good and promising stuff here. Oliver now being a part of the regular cast. Chloe's new powers. Lois's great legs. The Oliver/Clark fight. Oliver shooting Clark through the chest with an arrow was pretty cool. Very good to see a pro-active Clark but knowing the show, he'll regress two steps next week. Clark and Lois's interaction was quite good as well.

BTW, when Phil Morris showed up, was anyone expecting him to ask Clark...

While we wait, here's a nice pic of Allison Mack that I found recently...

I don't know why her character and Clark don't hook up. She is way better looking the Kristen Kreuk.

With the new creative staff I hope not, the impression I got (and I didn't 100% follow the pre-season spoiler thread) was that the new PTB are going to try and move things forward and in step with Superman. Between Clark giving up the farm and working at the DP, joining the Justice League and I'd say even Lois' new do that they're headed in that direction.

The show also has a different look and tone to it too, it felt to me.

Again, I think it shows a lot of promise.

Absolutely. If this season is going to be the biggest train-wreck in TV history, as some think, I intend to be along for the whole ride.

It's good to have fresh, new Smallville again.

I voted "Above Average" -which is "Above Average" for Smallville which is pretty darn good.

I agree. It does show a lot of promise. My only concern is the void left by Lex being out of the picture. The jury is still out on Miss Mercer though I'm looking forward to Sam Witner as Doomsday.

Yeah, there is a lot of promise here, and I really hope they can pull it off. I also hope that we got to see Cyborg and Impulse (or Kid Flash, as I call him) later on in the season.

I'm also still hoping that they can convince Dean Cain to come back one more time as Vandal Savage.

And they have to keep up with the 'Boyscout' moniker. I get a chuckle every time.

Yeah, Lex leaves a pretty darn big void. This woman though could be interesting though. She was over sold to us as being "more [evil] than Lex ever was." So now she's got a lot of promise to live up to. But there's no way she's going to have the pure, raw, natural charisma of Rosenbaum.

She kind of reminds of Amanda Peet.

The jury's still out on Miss Mercer. Saying she's more evil than Lex is pushing it. But I'm willing to see how her character progresses throughout the season. She's certainly nicer to look at than Uncle Fester.

Yeah, I haven't quite made up my mind about Miss Teschmacher either.

Seriously, if she was this high up in LutherCorp, where was Lex hiding her? She seems a bit like a rabbit out of the hat.
