About Last Night

Posted in ABC, CW, LOST, NBC, Smallville, Superman, The Office on May 16, 2008 by superman1224

As most of you know there were some big finales and also the start of another. I had to work last night at Apple so I DVRed them all and watched one right after the other. Lots to cover so here we go.

LOST – Great episode. Ben is the good guy, didn’t you know? You’ll see. I also have a theory of who is in the coffin and I believe it’s right on the money. I’ll leave the answer in the comments for those of you woh don’t want to be spoiled.

Smallville – I really enjoyed it! Not the best season finale ever but still very good. Michael was stupendous and Kristin taped one of her best performances ever. I might have shed a tear. That scene was great. The writers have a huge mountain to climb for next season. One great thing about the episode was we got a New Dark Knight TV Spot!

The Office – GREAT! It’s really the only show (other than the old eps of scrubs) that can make me laugh out loud at least once every episode! Kevin is slowly becoming my favorite character. So bummed Andy stole Jim’s thunder. Ryan? Come on who didn’t see that kid going down in flames. Biggest OMG moment came when Jan made her appearance. I really hope Michael and the new HR lady lay a good base!

Tonight On Smallville….The Finale!

Posted in CW, DC, Finale, Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum, Season 7, Smallville, Superman on May 15, 2008 by superman1224

Tonight is the season 7 finale of Smallville. Tonight is exciting on so many levels, but it is a little bittersweet, for tonight marks the last appearance for Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor. Michael has played arguably the best Lex Luthor the world has ever seen. I’m confident tonight will be his finest performance to date. Here is The CW’s official decription for the season finale Arctic.

LEX DISCOVERS CLARK’S SECRET — Kara (Laura Vandervoort) tells Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) he is destined to defeat the Traveler and offers to take him to the Fortress to learn how. Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned that Kara would go to Lex but it is revealed that Brainiac is impersonating Kara and she’s actually trapped in the Phantom Zone. Chloe is arrested by the Department of Domestic Security and Lana awakens from her comatose state. Meanwhile, in an epic turn of events, Clark and Lex face off in the Fortress and Lex learns Clark’s secret. Erica Durance and Aaron Ashmore also star. Todd Slavkin directed the episode written by Don Whitehead & Holly Henderson

Tonight is the next to last episode of Smallville before the season 7 finale. Tonight we find out who the last remaining member of Veritas is, and what he wants with Clark. Here is the CW’s official decreption for the episode.

CLARK MEETS THE LAST MEMBER OF VERITAS — Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) is attacked by a cloaked stranger who carves kryptonian symbols into his chest – a message for Clark (Tom Welling). Chloe (Allison Mack) and Clark investigate and discover one member of the Veritas clan has survived and is hiding in a church. Clark and Lex race to be the first to find this mysterious Veritas member, who holds the key to Clark’s survival. Aaron Ashmore also stars. Ken Biller directed the episode written by Holly Harold

Michael Rosenbaum Leaves Smallville

Posted in CW, Michael Rosenbaum, Smallville, Superman on May 2, 2008 by superman1224

After 7 seasons of portraying the best Lex Luthor anyone has ever seen, Michael Rosenbaum calls it quits. It comes as a bit of a shock knowing now that this is for real. I guess a part of me thought that he would come around for some type of limited engagement not unlike Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang), who has also left the show, but will return for at least a third of season 8’s episodes. It seems this could be the end of Lex Luthor on Smallville, however in a statement from Smallville executive producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin, Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, they eluded to a possible limited return for Rosenbaum, but I’m not holding my breath. It seemed that Rosenbaum has been very adamant and very verbal about his departure from the show as far as a year ago. I would be very surprised if he came back now that the decision has been made official.

So the big question is, where does this leave Smallville? I mean let’s take a roll-call shall we? So returning for sure for season 8 we have, Clark, Jimmy, Lois, and Kara. Chloe (Alison Mack) is still in talks, and we’ve already mentioned that Kristin is only going to be in a third of the episodes. There is no doubt in my mind that Alison will be back, since she seems to play a major roll in the show. But we’ve lost Lex and Lionel, not to mention the shows creator’s, Al and Miles, as well as a budget that has been cut in half.

So what are we left with? Who will play the villain? Glad you asked, because this is where it starts to go south. According to Smallville executive producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin, Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, DOOMSDAY will make an appearance! WHAT? Wait WHAT? Doomsday? Really? Seriously, what will Superman have left to do at this point? I mean fear is no longer going to be keeping Clark from becoming the Man Of Steel, boredom will! The Dude will have no one to fight! Another new villain will also be introduced in the 8th season. A fem fatal to be named later. Apparently what will make her so dangerous is the shared attraction between her and Clark.

All-in-all I am starting to get a little worried. I will still love Smallville because of it’s history and because I have been a fan for so long. As you know love covers a multitude of sins, but I worry about the new viewers. They might not be as forgiving as those who love the show. But hey it’s the last season so I suppose they don’t have much to worry about.

Tonight On Smallville…Apocalypse

Tonight we see what Smallville would’ve been like if there was no Clark Kent. Here is the CW’s official description:

Clark is torn because he thinks the world would be better off if he had never arrived in Smallville.

Jor-El arranges for him to see what life would have been like if Clark hadn’t existed – Lex (Michael Rosenabum) is President of the United States, Kara is raised by the Luthors, Jonathan (John Schneider) is alive, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) is happily married and Chloe (Allison Mack) and Lois (Erica Durance) are ace reporters.
