An hour of my life I’ll never get back

Yet another Thursday evening spent asking myself, “Why do I subject myself to yet another episode of SMALLVILLE?” This week’s ‘kryptofreak-of-the-week’ was a young girl who could break glass with her mind. As per usual, the main storyline was completely pointless, juvenile and written so that a 10 year old could predict the story. Case in point: Clark learns that he doesn’t have to follow in his father’s footsteps through the eyes of a troubled girl. Simply Brilliant! Not at all an obvious plot with zero suspense. Some observations:

1) How dumb is Martha Kent? Making Lois her Chief of Staff? Is it just me, or should she possibly hire a political operative instead of a barista.

2) Holy product placement Batman! (umm, I mean Superman!). AOL maps, AOL email, AOL commercials. Forget Subtlety, why not turn Superman’s ‘S’ into a giant AOL.

3) Does Clark only own one outfit? We get it, he’s actually Superman, but he must have another change of clothes. Does he always have to wear red and blue?

4) Does Allison Mack (Chloe) ever get annoyed that she is Clark’s personal lapdog, when her TV look-a-like Kristen Bell has her own awesome show (Veronica Mars).

    I COULD NOT AGREE MORE! The show has become a train wreck that I know will be horrible, but I simply can’t look away. The show has never been GREAT, but it’s had good moments. The 100th episode ruined any hope I had for it though. Simply awful.

    Hope the suspense picks up over these last few episodes. Don’t discount the entire Thursday night, though…because SUPERNATURAL is simply fantastic. It will scare the poop out of you, at some point, every single week. And it mixes in a lot of sarcastic comedy between the two brothers, who are so good it’s unreal. This show is a definite “can’t miss” each week, along with Everwood, The Office, and (for the most part) Gilmore Girls.

    Sometimes actors and scripts just “click”…and that’s the case with SUPERNATURAL.

  • Honestly, I haven’t watched a single Ep of SUPERNATURAL…. I think it will be one of those shows I catch in reruns or on DVD. I don’t want to jump on the bandwagon and miss all the mythology they’ve built up. Mabye over the summer I’ll watch is, as there will be very little else on (sad!)

    That would be a great Photoshop idea!
