    Clark is commuting from Smallville to Metropolis daily, living at the farm while working at the Planet.

    Thank God he has super-speed!

    Looking very much forward to Legion. Not looking forward to a bunch of new characters telling Clark how important he'll be and Clark doing his best to dispute that.

    Actually, the state of Kansas on Earth-Smallville is only about 40 square miles. ;)

    So where is the Isis Foundation located at? Metro or Smallville?

    pretty sure Isis is in Metropolis.

    I can believe Clark staying in Smallville, but the rest of them, no way Jimmy would leave the city, and Lois isnt even a Smallville native.

    Also Tess is at the Luthor Mansion, Oliver seems to live out his plane.

    Yeah, you gotta love Ollie acting like the billionaire Haddon from Contact.

    Haddon is one of my all-time favorite characters! And yes, I had made that connection some time back myself. :)

    "Why buy ONE when you can get TWO at TWICE the price? Wanna take a ride?" :techman: :techman: :techman: I swear Haddon had the Death Star contract during the OT! :D

    Contact is one of my all-time favorite films. Even after ten years, it holds up quite well, and remains one of Jodie Foster's best roles. John Hurt was fabulous as Haddon, quite the quirky, wealthy eccentric.

    I bet Ollie has a Blu-Ray copy of the movie on his plane!


    :lol:

    I want to eat a banana in orbit! ;)

    I just re-watched CONTACT about a week or two back...god, what a movie. The book was "okay", but the filmmaking process really forced them to distill it down to its basics...and DAMN if Zemeckis and company didn't capture the essence I felt Sagan was going for! (I love the commentary track, btw.)

    I wonder how long it'll be until that's an issue. Lois said in an recent episode that Clark drives like a grandma (and that it's a two hour drive to Smallville).

    Then again I have a Professor who lives three hours away from the university and commutes every morning (they asked her if she wanted to do online classes and she refuses).

    You know, it's the weirdest thing: I fully intended to include Beppo the Super-Monkey, I meant to type "Beppo the Super-Monkey," and I thoroughly believed I had included Beppo the Super-Monkey...only it seems that I did indeed omit Beppo the Super-Monkey. Now, it's even worse, because apparently I can't stop saying Beppo the Super-Monkey! HELP! :eek:

    Actually I wasn't laughing at the name as much as I was laughing at the character's ability. Even when I read the Legion stories as a kid, thought Bouncing Boy had the most ridiculous "super" power of just about any character in comics at the time.

    Has everyone seen the latest CW promo they have been showing with Tess speaking about someone she loved and the bald man with the tubes watching? They also show I think the Legionaires performing some kind of ritual around Chloe/Brainiac, and Doomsday, I only caught like a second of it but it looked really cool. What is the concensus about the bald man? Is it Lex? Not Michael but a body double or even CGI? If so then where is he and I wonder if they will explain what happened after the Fortress collapsed.

    ^ Everyone is assuming that it is Lex.
