    Okay, add her to the list of women I'd turn for. She's gorgeous.

    I wish I could say that wasn't 110% accurate....

    Well I'm finally getting the opportunity to watch it as a replay. I should be able to give my opinion shortly.

    Why the hell does AquaBro get naked in every episode that he appears in? He even tried it on American Idol!

    Many of us are not complaining about that.

    Makes sense as swimming attire.

    On top of that, we didn't get to see anything. Shot from the waist up or conveniently covered.

    Besides, it's not like the actor had a say in the matter...

    Thing I liked about Stargate was that the actors got behind the camera, writing and Directing, and Picardo's Voyager script was one of the shining points in Voyagers entire run... A quick overiview of Smallville's IMDB page shows that the people in front of the camera have stayed in front of the camera and hells if that isn't a tiny stable of writers and directors that they have used in the last '8" years.

    I'm sure Aquabro can try to hoist a spec script all about Aquabro if he cashed in a couple favours?

    Tom Welling has directed a couple show. And Allison Mack was supposed to last year, but the season got cut short thanks to the strike. But I get the point.

    Didn't Michael Rosenbaum write or direct an episode?

    Little trivia: Welling was the director of the episode in which Lana and Lex shared their first kiss.

    I'm giving this an Average.

    Points gained for -

    * Almost no Lana.
    * Chloe having lots to do.
    * Justice League!
    * Aborting last seasons daft Traveller storyline.
    * Lois in sexy maid outift.
    * Clark joining the Daily Planet.

    Points deducted for:

    * Clark loses powers, again.
    * J'onn loses powers. What is it with this show and taking superheroes' powers away ? :mad:
    * Too much teenage girl inspired shirtlessness.
    * Not-Miss-Tessmacher is annoying already. Shouting a lot and threatening to fire people is not convincing me that you're in charge.
    * Started off the season without all of their new regular cast making appearances. Sam Witwer is going to end up being the Robert Rusler of Smallville, I can smell it.

    Oh, and I'm guessing Welling's agent won't like the new title sequence with the shot of Welling wearing a suit and glasses. :lol:

    The no glasses thing still doesn't make sense, even more so now that he works at the planet with Lois

    It's Welling's fault. He doesn't want to be typecast so he insists upon staying away from suits and glasses. Basically, he doesn't want to be seen looking like this:

    Doesn't want to be typecast but he's been playing the same character for 8 years straight?

    Considering that in between eight seasons, all Welling's been able to make are two remakes and a sequel to one of those remakes, I don't think he has to worry about being typecast.

    Maybe he's riding out his youth, since he has no faith in kiddie roles and Tom's waiting for Middle age to be taken seriously? Well, later middle age?
