Though, an under achieving statutory rapist (How old was Lana? I think she was old enough, because they were more worried about him losing his job, than going to jail.)?
Actually it was revealed in a later episode that Lana never had sex with Jason Teague.
What is with the guys in this show ? Lana was old enough, it's just that Jason was a football coach at the school.

The only guy who ever seemed to get any was Jimmy - and only because they did it before he was actually on the show.
Well, it was implied that Chloe and Jimmy shacked up after they reunited. Remember the whip cream?

Also, Ollie and Lex got some a couple of times.

^The guys on this show aren't exactly a bunch of sexual predators, though.

This is, of course, not surprising. Sexually aggressive men might put off the network's core audience. The CW prefers men to be tied up and shirtless.

I always thought it was the other way around. Clark is the real person and Superman is the "act". Maybe it's because what Lois & Clark did with the character made an impression on me.

Well, if you want to get technical, every version of Superman is its own universe. That's not something that's unique to Smallville.

Anyhoo...

I'm not happy with what they did to Jimmy. Did DC really panic and make the show runners kill off the character? I'll admit that after seeing the episode, I was glad that there would still be a "Jimmy", I'm just not happy that they had to do a retcon on the one we knew.

that is pretty much how I see it as well, but yeah Lois & Clark was my first Superman as well.

that said I tend to think that there are 3 personalties.

1) Superman, the act he puts on for the public so that people like him.
2) Clark Kent, the guy works at the Daily Planet and types at an average speed, so as not to give himself away.

and the real personality 3) the real Clark Kent, the guy who wakes up in the morning, cooks toast with his heat vision, and listens to the police scanner via his super hearing whilst he puts on his suits.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

^ Lois & Clark wasn't the first version of Superman I was exposed to, it just sticks in my mind as a well fleshed out version of the Clark/Superman character and I took a lot away from that.

As for the "three personality" idea, the Christopher Reeve movies did that, but Lois & Clark stuck with just one version of Clark.

I dont think Clark when he is by himself in his apartment, is the same guy as Clark when he is out for public, for obvious reasons.

^ Only difference there was that he used his powers, his overall character or personality didn't change.

I would say that most of the time that is true, but anyone who has to hide a part of themselves in public, is going to behave slightly differently in public even when you are not using or being that thing you have to hide.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

^ The way I saw it was that he simply didn't use his powers in front of people and sometimes made excused to get away. He didn't have the full-scale Christopher Reeve-style act. A lot of people hide things to varying degrees and Dean Cain's Clark Kent was no different.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

or the times when he was chasing the story, take down his glasses, and use his X-Ray vision whilst Lois was looking the other way, or use his super hearing.

The whole clumsy weak Clark Kent thing just seems silly, sure it wont hurt for him to drop a cup once a year, or cry off sick when a few other people are, but apart from that, he does not need to take it to far.


Of course that is not a problem Clark has in Smallville, there is that much Kypronite around, he does not need to fake anything, all the mean characters have seen him weak for some reason.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Well I have a wait see attitude on this season coming up.
I'm not looking forward to Friday night at 8pm since I could be working by that time,and it depends on who is my employer also the work schedule.

I had an interview with Family dollar today looks promising,but I'm having second thoughts if I get the offer.
Still no word from Radio Shack yet,but tomorrow I'm going to the Lego Store in Annapolis,MD to follow up the compensation is double what Family dollar would pay me to do the same Job as assistant Mgr.

That's all for now

Signed

^Good luck on your job search. If you work during Smallville, you can also catch it online at the CW website. They usually stream the episodes on their site the following week.
