Smallville

Have been catching up on some episodes from this season. That Zod, he sure does love to have people kneeling. I have visions of that being the first sentence he ever said as a wee child much to everyone's amusement. Before he made them kneel, of course. Would love to live in a world where one got to go around saying 'KNEEL BEFORE LESBIASSPARROW.' Of course, I'd do it in a more caring, sharing sort of way.

Lois is awesome, as is Chloe but Cut for that one set in the alternafuture where everyone kneels before Zod )

Oh, and speaking of derivative works, just read LeGuin's Lavinia. Liked the idea that Lavinia could have more freedom as a character because she is silent in the Aeneid but there's no way that Virgil's Aeneas would go around saying 'Oh my Italian love, etc.' The man was so repressed that he couldn't even say anything to Dido as he was leaving, hardly think he was getting into the flowery language once he got to Italy. Liked her take on Ascanius being useless jerk as I've always hated the wee bugger in the poem.

Just when I thought I was out...

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.

And I was sort of enjoying this season, too.

This evening's episode of Smallville made me want to stab myself with a fork. Repeatedly.

Smallville

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?
