Topic: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

Is it just me, or this was a very sucky and slow and boring episode....
I mean...c'mon...they did quite well on the last season finalle, and now this?
No lex...some ugly dum bitch is replacing him
Then the justice league wannabe's save clark, then he dies, then he is revived AGAIN!
and now he's finally moving to metropollin and starting working along side Lois as a reporter...
I remember in the first seasons, they marketed this show as "the early days of Superman"
and now?
bullshit....They story doesn't meet up in anyway with the original...
besides the name Kal-El.
I'm for one is tired after 7 seasons.
I'm considering taking the show off my NE list...
what do you guys think about this episode?

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

The beginning was awesome. I like that they made Allison a computer. Not a computer but you know what i mean. She synced up with braniac or whatever. For the revived part i totally agree, he dies again, really? Its annoying. And the Lex girl, i dont know.

All in all i will continue watching. I dont mind that the story is not the original. I think that the entire 7th season was kind of off. The whole veritas thing sucked. I like that they will explore Lois and Clarks relationship in this season.

I also enjoy that the JLA is back. Ive missed them.

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

after the ending in season 7 i was like, hows he goina get out of this one, i come back and. oh Mack is a genius and clark is powerless and working in russia, what luck this guy has. green arrow is back as a series regular now maybe though, he is in the opening credits.

but no lana, who is clark goina put all his teenage angst into, and no lex, where are we goina get all those impressive speaches from

"what do you think is stronger Clark, her affection for you, or her hatred of me"

just classic, i think were going downhill now since were headed out of Smallville, can't really call it metropolis can we

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

I think it's gonna get better then ever this season... We might even see blue tights and a red cape, but of course Clark must learn how to fly first....

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

Season opener was mediocre at best, but the 2nd episode was much better. Great chemistry between Clark & Lois which shouldn't come as a surprise. I just wished that Clark has moved on to Metropolis earlier and not in the last season of the show. Tess looks promising as a new addition to the cast. Davis on the other hand is not what I've expected and I'm not too curious about how his "relationship" with Chloe progresses.

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

I still like the show....and to whoever said it,yea the earlier seasons they did tout it as the early days of superman in smallville.....but uh after 7 years, clark needs to get out and head in that direction...regardless, other wise it would be almost almost as retarded that the original 90210 guys were in high school for a cajillion years...and a college extension could only go so far and possibly split all the cast up.

I unlike alot is pretty happy with the smallville through all the seasons so far, with one single caveat.
The point where they started giving Lana Lang those odd powers with that symbol on her back was a little out of the way, but even still, over all I like what they are doing.

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

i imagine that the last episode is going to be him becomming superman, they did say that the series was about him before he came superman and he wouldn't fly or wear the cape, there have been many hints, he hovered in the first episode, some tv star gave him a red cloak as a present after he saved her life, and when jorell took him away in season 5 i think it was he became kalel and was able to fly. also in season three he had some kind of symbol burned onto his chest that looked very much like an S

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

spin off series, Superman smile I recon its not really ending there goina surprise us with that, so then they wont have all those restrictions they put on the show, and can introduce real DC characters

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

If there would be a spinoff, I would bet money that it would probably be some kind of the beginnings of the justice league....

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

altryne: Have u read the comic books at all ? I believe the "some ugly dum bitch" is based on the character of mercy, a loyal employee of lex luthor, his right hand if you will. Maybe that will help you to tolerate her a little. smile I dont think she is ugly though, her hair was styled weird, hang in there for a ball/metropolis charity event/prom style episode and we should see her all dolled up properly.

I, like you have wanted them to end it for a long time just so that it can leave gracefully but CW has not got many high rated shows so they keep spinning that wheel and more often than not they land on bankrupt. I think we are up to 4 times now that Jor-El has stripped Clark of his powers in a season finale (OUT OF A POSSIBLE 7! LOL). I already own the first 7 seasons on DVD and I'm committed to buying the rest so I hope there is not too many more to come.

...so yes the show is dumb and no one would blame you for taking it off your ne watchlist but trust me its easier said than done, theres too many cool characters and nice mythology to go cold turkey. Believe me when I tell you I feel exactly like you do although there was a brief renaissance last season where I though it could capture the glory of Seasons 1-4. (kinda reminded me of how i hated seasons 5 and 6 of buffy but fell in love again with the final 7th season but thats another story and another complete dvd set wink)

If i had my way Smallville would be in mini series format from now on, comprising of 4 or 5 episodes a year - the season premiere, finale and sweeps episodes but showbiz is a business and we have to deal with it - c'est la vie

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

i dropped smallville mid season 7.  even if it improves by heaps and bounds, i think the damage is done.  how many times has clark died?  went back in time? met cryptonians?  and not been able to fly?

if the apocalypse comes.... beep me!

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

not to mention the incredibly painful clark - lana thing over and over and over and over.  oh and here comes kara.  i´m sorry... a multitude of hot girls and no story might have done it for me when i was 14.... but not now wink

if the apocalypse comes.... beep me!

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

I think Cloe needs to snap in one episode. I mean she have lost everything. Her job, her mother, two of her closest friends. The only thing she have left is Clark and he is always the center of attention, and Jimmy, witch is kind of good because he treats her like a princess. Yeah and her cousin witch she gotta be a little pissed at on the count her the job thing. Not to mention all the stuff that has happened to her body, first the healing thing, then (The totally awesome) Braniac brain path or whatever it is.

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?

yeah im confused about that, did the braniac thing remove her power to heal, or does she still have it?

True - Because of legal reasons.

Re: **SPOILER** Season 8 thoughts?
