As I sit here watching Smallville Season 2, I have a sense of nostalgia. It makes me feel good and happy. These were the salad days. While watching Smallville tonight, I was left with a sense of sadness. The joy of watching the show that I felt earlier in the evening was over shadowed by my feeling of let down.
Why do I feel this way? Many things, Chloe is the same character and I will say this: if I was a Chloe fan I would be so mad at what they did to her this episode. How can one woman be so easily swayed by someone? Meaning her attraction to Davis Bloom. Uh, she is engaged to Jimmy whom she failed to mention to just about everyone. What happened to Chloe the reporter?
And why does it feel like Clark is just trying to force himself through a scene? It is like he is so monotone and matter of fact. But he is supposed to be someone different. It is like he is focused now, not hampered by his love life. I do like they are having him get closer to being who he is supposed to be but Clark is odd. Almost like he is depressed. And maybe he is. Everyone else has left the show and here he still is. Oh don’t get me wrong, I think Tom looks sexy as hell and I am glad they have decided against the plaid thing but I hope he gets more emotion behind him soon.
I do like that Tess is like a female version of Lex and it seems like she is going to form some kind of league of villains. She seems to be a force to be reckoned with. Along with Lois, she is different from any of the other Lois’ in that she wants to help Clark rather try to outdo him. Well at least for now. What I don’t like is how she seems to be mooning over Clark when he walks out of the room. When did that happen? I mean I know he is fine but when did she get interested in him?
I think I really didn’t care for this episode because it felt like I was just going through the motions myself. It was a weak plot to set Clark up with Lois and to introduce Davis Bloom aka Doomsday. I was left with an empty feeling when the show ended. Tom looked great in his dress clothes and that’s okay since he is the real reason I am still watching. Hopefully, this icky feeling will not last and that the show will improve. Otherwise I’ll have to see if I can make it on Tom alone.
NEXT WEEK: The origin of the Green Arrow includes Tess! STAY TUNED!
