'Smallville' Season 10, Episode 6 Recap

A clan of killer cultists made trouble for Lois and Clark, and Tess discovered Alexander's dark side on last night's episode of 'Smallville.' Erica Durance's spirited performance was the best thing about this ep's goofy A plot, which featured a blue kryptonite-lovin' religious cult bent on sacrificing Lois to their vengeful god. Durance's eyes and voice really sold the terror in Lois' heart when she was stuck under that raging blue fire and surrounded by an army of Cletuses and Jebediahs. But it was Lois' defiant and independent spirit that got her in trouble in the first place. During a drive out to the country to cover the Cherry Festival (!), Clark revealed that he pulled some strings to get her out of town and keep her from covering the anti-hero protest in Metropolis. Lois, as we all know, is the poster girl for the pro-hero mindset (It's not really a "movement" yet, is it?). Clark was only trying to protect her from the potentially violent wackos on the other side of the issue. (Geez, when did Metropolis become such a hotbed of ideological conflict?) But Lois is Lois. She didn't appreciate Clark's sneaky efforts to keep her safe, and she sent him walking in the hot sun after their tire blew out on the road. Hoping to get back to Metropolis, she hitched a ride to the nearest train station from a creepy little country girl on a horse and buggy. To Read More Click Here.

Smallville 10.06 “Harvest” Review

This was not a good episode. I’m not a fan of saying that, or typing it. Most times I can even find a way that an episode is actually good and underrated. This episode, however, doesn’t really have many redeeming features. It feels like the show took a wrong turn, and didn’t stop to think that maybe it just can’t do certain types of stories effectively. It’s my belief that the ‘themed’ episode of  Smallville are usually the ones that don’t translate as well as hoped. While this isn’t an episode set on Halloween, it’s clearly a horror episode of sorts designed to play on (or near) Halloween. And, for me, it falls into the same trap that "Thirst" (the Kitty-Cat Vampire Lana episode) and ‘Lexmas" did. While "Lexmas" is a better episode for the fact that it supplies a logical foundation for Lex’s character, it ultimately doesn’t feel complete. The Christmas aspects of that story feel shoehorned in and on the nose. Now in relation to "Thirst," this episode feels too much in the ‘we need a Halloween episode, let’s do that’ instead of a logical story progression. To Read More  Click Here.
