    I can't believe that I was looking down when he 'levitated'. Have to wind the tape back.

    Eh, I give this episode an Average. Nothing impressive here.

    A lot of neat ideas and stuff in it that could've been expanding into a good set of two episodes for the monumental moment of the 200th episode but, in the end, bleh.

    The stupid S1 teeny bopper song at the dance really hurt it. Sorry, I just hate that genre of music.

    I'm calling it, Kal. This was just a bad episode, not anywhere near what a 200th episode should be. I'm really sick of the tease at this point. It's the last season for Christ's sake, give us something.'

    Well, they did give us a glimpse of Clark's future and Clark & Lois declaring their love for each other. That's something.

    I'm with you guys, this was nothing special. Once again, the expectation was far greater than the event. Plus, as far as I'm concerned, this show is really suffering from the lack of Allison's presence. I've said it before, she's the heart and soul of SV, and that's what's lacking right now.

    That said, I did find the scene of him saying goodbye to Jon to be touching.

    They also showed us that Clark is more of a douchebag in the future than he is in the present.

    Hey, it took him 4 years to come to terms with his Dad's death. For a Superman, he sure does do these things slowly.

    To be fair, he blamed himself for Bo's death so it makes some sense it'd take some time for him to get over it.

    That's a given though. I don't want to see flights and tights on the last episode, that's just lame. This season is shaping up to be a repeat of season 8.

    Another Red-Blue Blur from me. You all have to admit it was a helluva lot better than last week. Nice twist how they "tweeked" the Legion mythos, just so they could use James Marsters for the role. It brought an Oh my God outta my mouth thinking it could be the original at first, which is probably what they intended.
    The future scenes were kind of a tease. But I liked them none the less.
    I was wondering what that "special moment" could be and was kind of let down when Clark said " I love you", but as Lois and Clark started dancing I said to my wife, That would be sssooo fantastic if they started floating.....:guffaw::techman:

    Does that mean that Doomsday will be back for another 20 second battle?

    It was cool how Lois stepped up on Clark's feet when they danced, a nice nod to that scene in Superman Returns.

    Well I found the episode interesting,and thought provoking,because when Future Clark/Superman tells Present Clark "I've been waiting for you I cannot be in two places at once" makes me think that our future selves have a link to our past selves,and when we make a choice it affects the future time line. I love the Brainiac 5.0 coming to the present to give our Kal-El a look see where his path will take him if he makes the right decisions now to bury the past exist in the present,and live for a future where he dons the super-suit,and is married to Lois and she knows his secret ID,and what looks like that in his civilian ID he's co-EIC with Lois Lane.Also Present Clark saving Lois from an accident waiting to happen reminiscent of the first Reeve Superman film scene where the Helicopter falls off the roof of the Daily Planet building.
    I can't wait for next weeks episode the writing,acting,direction of the season is Super-Man(I know bad pun) LOL
    So till next time same Smallville Channel same Smallville Time
