Anyone else been watching Smallville?  When they started the promo commercials for it, I thought it looked stupid, and didn't see any of the episodes until a couple of months ago.  Then I happened to catch an episode and realized it was pretty darn good.  I finally got a chance to watch the pilot the other night and noticed a few things:

Smallville, Kansas has a population of 45,001.  That makes it the 9th largest town in Kansas...hardly 'small'.

The new subdivision near the Kent farm advertises new homes "starting at $245,000".  A $245k house in Kansas is HUGE.

Oddly enough, nobody speaks with a midwestern 'twang'.

Hehehe...Chloe's a bit more my type, tho.  Inquisitive and doesn't go out with the not-so-bright football star.

Smallville ranks among my three favorite shows: Futurama, Farscape and of course our favortite angst-ridden man of steel.  big grin   Mm...Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum...  flirt   Anyway, I'm the biggest Lana/Clark shipper ever!  They're so cute.  I wish Ryan had told Clark what Lana had thought of him.
What did everyone think of Kristin Kruek's new look in "Nicodemus"?  flirt

I got really into Farscape the first couple seasons, and haven't watched it since.  Not sure why.  I always thought Claudia Black was hot.  I hear she plays Pandora in Queen of the Damned.  Might have to see that.

I found all the Smallville episodes I missed on Kazaa...handy little program sometimes.  I never got into Lois & Clark, but this new series has potential.  No 'save the world' troubles yet, which I think helps the story...keep it small.  Add in the teenage geek Clark, and it's quite interesting.

But how come the other Superman programme never mentioned that Superman and Lex Luthor knew each other? You'd think it would've come up at some point!

Well, different shows have different views on the story. They can't all coordinate, and agree on a single truth about the characters.

They usually tend to ignore the basic laws of physics, especially the ones about mass and momentum.  I did notice in Smallville that the couple of times Clark gets hit by cars that he does react like a person of normal mass and doesn't just stop the car cold.  Of course, he doesn't get hurt.

Naw, he's the Man of Steel, he's not supposed to get hurt!  It's just that a 180lb Superman standing still shouldn't be able to stop cold a 20,000lb bus moving at 30mph.  Dang physics degree messing with my mind again...

I noticed something else...it's not windy in Smallville.  Definitely not Kansas.

So, if Smallville is in Kansas...then Metropolis is where???  It looks like it's a couple of hours drive away (otherwise they wouldn't be taking a limo to the concert).  The only major cities within that range of Kansas would be Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and maybe Denver.  I'd guess Kansas City, pop. 1.7mil.

New Episode tomorrow night!

They said Metropelous is only 3 hours from Smallville.

  I can't wait for new episodes starting April 14, 2004.  The season finally sounds good, as well as the up coming one with Chris Reeves (Legacy).  The previews for Legacy look good, they show Clark suspended above a tank of water that is glowing green (Kryptonite maybe?).  They also show Jonathon at a grave (wonder whose it is?).  Plus Clark says to Christopher Reeves, "You set me up!".

  So many mysteries, anybody got any ideas?                            It is a shame that George Reeves killed himself, although there is speculation of him being murder, (not sure If  I believe it or not).

I watch Smallville regularly, but I wouldn't consider myself a "fan". In fact, I mainly watch it to make fun of it now. It's more entertaining than than actually watching the show on its own, which isn't a good sign. Anyhow, they have had some good stuff in the past, but this season so far has been pretty weak. Pete really carried the show.  big grin

I know this post is old, but why should the physics degree be the thing that allows you to "get it" like noone else has ever gotten anything before? I'm pretty sure most of us know just a little about momentum and such.

And no, I don't watch the show... A quick recap of my first episode: A bunch of jocks can walk through walls  roll eyes and they form some brotherhood and Clark and LEx save the day in the end...

Also, I think it's stupid to have Lex in the show in this way- he's not the kind of guy who'd grow up to be the Lex Luthor from the comics.

Oh... you are soooo wrong... they've been alluding to his evil, and that's the beauty of the show itself.  Lex starts out all nice and friendly, but slowly becomes paranoid and eccentric and has this urge to kill anyone and everyone who stands in his way.... he's the best.  In fact, they should have just called the show Lex and made it about him.... but then you'd get confused with the show called Lexx, you know the one, with the mosquito spaceship and the light universe and dark universe and sex aliens and such.......  roll eyes

Actually, Lex is the main reason I still watch.  He's a great character, and watching him turn evil is most cool. Some of the best episodes have been the ones centered on Lex. The rest is just filler. Except for Pete. He just rocked.

I couldn't disagree with you more, the last season he wasn't even used that much, sure he had an episode called "Velocity", but the rest of the time he was just used to get Kryptonite away from Clark, and to hate the Luthors. Or he was used as a filler while Clark was at school.  Pete will probally make a cameo in the near future, like Whitney did earlier this year, in that flashback at the beginning of that plastic surgery episode.

I do love watching the Lex/Clark relationship evolve into what it will one day become.   
But Clark needs to stop questioning Lex all the time, like this past episode, Clark- "Just tell me you didn't do it." (refering to a dead body found in Lex's bed)

I do still love the show, and will continue to watch, but I wish they would stop these episodes where someone finds out Clark's secret, and then they get ammnesia.  That can become very tiresome.

T'was a joke... I know that Pete was practically useless and was almost never used. For someone who was in the opening credits, it really didn't make much of a difference in the show when he left, which shows how unimportant he was.  Tragic, really.

For some reason, Canadia is a week behind in showing the episodes, at least on the channel that I get it on. Thanks for spoiling it, jerk!  wink

I did, it was an ok episode, i'm not going to say too much, just in case some people didn't see it, although I don't know what your waiting for.  I was disapointed that they didn't reveal who released Lionel from prison, I do have my suspicions though. And what Lex saw was really cool, it was the same thing that that old lady saw in "Hourgalss".  I hope they clear stuff up in the next episode, whenever that will be.

There's going to be a new episode on January 26, 2005.  The episode will be called "Unsafe".  Alicia Baker, the chick that can teleport herself, and was obsessed with Clark, will be in the episode.  It's going to be a cliff hanger.

I liked it, someone finally learned Clark's secret that doesn't have amnesia! Whoo!  smile You kinda knew that Alicia was going to die, nobody lasts more then a few episodes unless their a main charcter. Atleast Clark learned some things. Overall, I'd say a B. Good, but it got kinda boring after awhile, though

Yeah, I can't read that blue thing, makes me sad.

I'm glad someone learned his secret, now there's one less person that we have to worry about, getting Amnesia, WOOHOO!

I didn't see them killing off Alicia, I thought they'd send her back, it did look like she was going crazy again. Why did she tell Chloe his secret? They made such a big deal about her being loyal to him, she even took a bullet for him the week before, just to protect his secret. What Gives?!

[BUMP]

Sorry to bump after so long, but with the new season starting in less than 3 days, I thought it would be appropriate.

There's so much stuff going on this season, I don't know where to begin, does anyone have anything to say?

P.S. Did anyone else hear anything about Dean Cain being on Smallville this season? I thought I read it in an article, but then couldn't find it anywhere.

I've seen bits and pieces of some episodes, but the one episode i saw in it's entirety was the one with the woman killed and stored in some bin and he can see through the bin or something anyone kno what i'm talking about?

anyways I couldn't sleep the other night and Smallville was on at 2am. I actually really liked the episode, I have no idea what season it is but I'm guessing it's one of the earlier ones. Lana's boyfriend Whitney had tied up Clark in the previous episode and in this episode some bug boy was after Lana. The ending made me so sad when Clark got rid of bug boy and then Whitney opens the cocoon and gets Lana and takes all the credit for saving Lana whereas Clark gets none when he's the one who really saved her...and then leaves that meteorite necklace thing on her door and she thinks Whitney put it there...   cry It's weird saying "awwww" and nearly crying at 3 am in you darkened bedroom

The Ausiello Report
By Michael Ausiello


Lois and Clark Runited (Sort Of)
Smallville, which usually leaps tall buildings for it's casting stunts, is wooing erstwhile Superman Dean Cain for an upcoming arc. "We have been talking," confirms exec producer Al Gough, who adds that Cain would play-what else?-A love interest for Lois Lane (Erica Durance). So, what's the holdup? "We want to figure out the right story," Gough says. "For these guest stars, you have to entice them with something good. You can't just say, 'Do you want to be on the show? We'll write it for you later.' We're not Desperate Housewives." He said it, not me.
