Superheroes have a hard time in primetime in recent memory. Smallville succeeded in part because it started 10 years ago and dealt with a familiar face. The Cape flat-out sucked. Heroes, starting strong, got too convoluted and died painfully. Wonder Woman – with a reboot concept I couldn’t wrap my head around – (thankfully?) didn’t get picked up (I question the thankfully because it might have worked. But I love WW and I would have hated hating it).
Yep, it’s time to talk about THE SUIT. Now I realize that there was a lot of CGI magic going on with the suit, and honestly I don’t care. I’m sorry, but I loved every fake second of it.
Anyone could dress up in blue tights and a cape and call themselves Superman, but it’s his music that makes me believe what he believes: that there is something truly remarkable about humanity, about Earth. That there can be heroes, even if not Kryptonian ones.
Please imagine right here an image of your humble narrator, teary eyed with her jaw dropped open. Then imagine her cursing the name of Lois Lane using some very choice words.
Alright my lovelies we are down to the final three. I don’t know about you, but I am hoping (maybe even expecting) that the last three episodes are going to be action packed. There is no more room for filler crap, and if they try to give it to us I might end up being a little miffed.
One down, three to go. I still haven’t hit the level of bittersweet over the whole deal yet. I have a feeling I won’t start the “grieving process” until the after the finale. With all that being said let’s get to this episode which I have been waiting to see for a bit.
This is it kids, the last set of episodes. The last pieces of Smallville. I am feeling a little sad, and a little excited.
We have Clark Kent changing in a phone booth. I repeat: WE HAVE CLARK KENT CHANGING IN A PHONE BOOTH!!!!
Oh, and Booster Gold is in this episode, too. But, I never liked that character, so whatever.
And there’s Blue Beetle, looking like a time traveler from a 1990s Saturday morning show on public access.
Smallville is looking dark in this preview of the next episode, “Kent”.
