So, I'm watching the first episode of the new season of Smallville, as we all know that I love rubbish and someone just reminded me that Smallville is reliably low quality TV with many pretty people. But as I haven't seen it for years, since long before Lois was added, there are all of these new characters who are rather a shock to the system. But mainly I am wondering about Lois: um, is she always this shrill and rather horrid? It might work better if she didn't also seem to have been dropped on her head often as a child. There appears little for her be smug about in the brains department.

ETA: Also! I am lazy, so can someone tell me what Chloe's job is these days?

REMEMBER! Lois is the one Clark ends up with. She cannot be portrayed positively because it must be clear that Clark and Lana's love is pure and true and a beautiful, Special Special Snowflake. (Yeah, they actually portrayed her pretty well the couple seasons with her that I long as she and Clark weren't showing any interest in each other, and she was supporting Clark/Lana.)

But now there is no Lana (or at least she is gloriously absent from this episode) and they still have made her such a harpy that I can't imagine anyone, let alone Clark, ever wanting to spend more than 10 minutes in her company.

But remember, Lois is a thief! A thief! No matter what happens or how it came about, she stole Clark! She's horrible!

It's like how everyone in Lana's life was cruelly abandoning her back when she was literally dropkicking them out of her life in season 2!

Don't give me flashbacks to the beginnings of my hate for Lana! She's the reason I stopped watching in the first place; still, I'm not impressed by Lois no matter why they've changed her.

"Smallville is reliably low quality TV with many pretty people."


The same could be said for Heroes. Oh Nathan Nathan Nathan Nathan...your show is pants but you are so pretty.

Sadly, though, I find that Heroes isn't that much fun anymore and I really don't like that they clearly think that I should have to watch every episode of their poor writing just to follow the plot. Even Nathan isn't that pretty.

On SV, Chloe gets all of Lois's good qualities.

SV!Lois has always been bitchy, but I like her because she's the only character who is perfectly open about thinking Clark is an idiot. I can deal with her not seeming like Mensa material herself because at least she's not Lana.

because at least she's not Lana.

Good point. Still, though if she was smarter her superiority complex would be more bearable. I mean, it's not like that it's much of a challenge to be brighter than Clark.

Chloe runs the meteour foundation and counsels people. And yes Lois has always been like that, she's actually getting nicer with Clark as she used to be a lot more snide around him

Thanks! I haven't seen a bunch of seasons so I missed the founding of the meteor foundation.

I wouldn't mind Lois being snide but based on the little (ie one episode) I've seen she doesn't really seem to have a lot to be snide about.

Since she's been introduced to the show the producers have been undecided whether to portray Lois as an ambition-less airhead or a ruthless woman who sleeps her way to the top. Which, of course, has nothing to do with the fact that Chloe, their original character, is the smartest, brightest, most talented reporter in the show even though she doesn't really exist in DC-verse and that role actually belongs to Lois. The trick with Smallville is watching how every female chararacter is compromised to be a foil to Chloe Sue.

ETA: Also! I am lazy, so can someone tell me what Chloe's job is these days?

Her job is Whatever Needs to Be Done. She's super-reporter, super-meteor-freak-with-healing-powers-that-can-destroy-supervillains, super-head of a foundation-that-Lana-founded, and Luthor nemesis all in one perky, blonde package. I'm waiting for the series to end with the big reveal that Chloe is really Wonder Woman.
