So, in an act of extreme shamingness I have started rewatching Smallville. I KNOW, I KNOW. After the whole Doomsday debacle I said I was out. BUT IT SUCKED ME BACK IN. They're all so very pretty. And dumb. Well, that's mainly Clark because he has the dumbness of about a dozen people all rolled into one package. Plus there's the fact that they're getting to Lois and Clark (+ added Chloe + Green Arrow for a bonus of prettiness) which I always enjoy, even if this Lois is not my favourite incarnation of her.

(Though I am entertained by the whole TWoP hatred for Lois. Really? The poor woman is canon! If I'm watching Superman in the big city, you'd better have some Lois or else what's the point, really? You're fighting against an impossible current there. And you can like both Chloe and Lois, you know. It's not a Highlander thing where there CAN BE ONLY ONE AND THEY MUST FIGHT IT OUT TO DEATH WITH SWORDS. HOPEFULLY LASER ONES ON A LAVA PLANET.)

In conclusion: pretty people + one dumb alien make for excellent cheesy TV. I think I need icons. And they're going to need a lot of luck to defeat Zod, because he clearly has far more brains than any of them. Plus he's evil, so thus clearly better at scheming and such.

ETA: Also one of you should start rewatching it so I don't feel too alone.

ETA 2: HEY! THE KANDORIANS HAVE THE SAME ROOM OF MYSTIC CANDLES THAT THE ANNOYING TELEPATHS DID IN BABYLON FIVE. I HATED THAT ONE TOO.

ALL DUELS FROM NOW ON MUST BE FOUGHT NOT WITH PISTOLS IN A MISTY FIELD, BUT ON LAVA PLANETS WITH LASER SWORDS. SO I DECREE.

YES. AND THE DUELLISTS SHOULD HAVE TO LEAVE OVER LAVA FROM TIME TO TIME WHILE WAVING THE SWORDS.

You are a sucker for punishment! But better you than me, kiddo! I'll let you navigate the waters of crap TV and warn me where there are reefs ahead. Or crazy eyes. Or whatever.
Oh yeah - the hatred for any female that any TV "Hero" fancies reaches epic, nay - volcanic proportions. You think that the Iceland volcano was spectacular? Wait until you see an episode where "OUR" hero expresses his love/lust/liking/appreciation for a young, pretty female. Fandom goes nuclear.

I live to watch bad TV. It is my calling.

The thing is while I expect the hatred for female characters on TWoP, I really don't get the resentment of Lois taking up time on the show - surely you must expect her to do something if Clark is in the big city being all reportery and working with her?

I'm watching Lois & Clark: New Adventures of Superman. That show takes me back.

Man, I loved that show. At least in the beginning. Lex was awesome as well.

I would totally start watching Smallville again if there was laser sword dueling on a lava planet. That would be AWESOME!

Like mini-ninjas laser sword fights on lava planets make everything better. See also: screaming man-pain.

ancarett: (Lois Lane Smallville)

Lois Lane is my IDOL! I hate the stupid fangirls who keep trying to write her out of existence and then reincarnate her name in the person of Chloe Sullivan (who just annoys me the last few seasons, sad to say).

My daughter's much more pragmatic. She just watches for shirtless Ollie.

I will say that this is not my favourite incarnation of Lois (though I don't hate the character or anything and I've loved some moments with her), but still - resenting her for even existing in a Superman show is INSANE. Lois is a really big part of what most people think of when they think of Superman even not quite flying yet Superman!

I like Chloe (and thank god she seems to finally have moved on past Clark because that was the most boring thing ever) but I would like to think I can like the two of them. There can be two women on a show without one of them being seen as an evil scene-stealer as TWoP seems to think.

(But what will your daughter do now Oliver's chest has been TRAGICALLY SCARRED. That's about 90% of that character gone right there.)
