Smallville The End is Near- a quick Review
This TV series (brace yourself this is going to sound dumb) helped renew my faith in my fellow man. Its easy to get overwhelmed with the butt holery that can go on in the day to day life but among all the trash on tv here is one show that tries its best to live up to the symbol of good Superman should stand for. It might be childish but I think we all need a dose of that from time to time. This show reminds me of that friend of yours that is kind of cheesy nice but is a really great person but you get embarrassed of him with your cool friends. I choose the nice friend over some douche bag fad rider. See how sad I am to see Smallville end I’m rambling now. Now back to the point.
The first few seasons could be compared to Dawsons Creek with super powers but its epic way more than it makes me want Dawsons Creek to dry up. Clark and Lana play the can we dance for a few seasons but when all that finally ended Lana was what we in the real world would call a crazy hoe. Then Lois joins the cast and this chick is so hot and the personality that they gave the character totally blows Lana out the water. Chloe is such an awesome sidekick that she is practically an information superhero and she actually becomes one for a little while. Lex Luthor is the man from the beginning, he is actually the reason I bought the first season because I saw a few episodes and that’s how cool he was. He struggles with his good side because Clark Kent can influence anyone but a scorpion is a scorpion. When Lex is finally turning in comes Oliver Queen to take up the role of the billionaire friend gap that Lex has left open. I have to be honest though I never liked the idea of green arrow in a universe with Superman but this show has changed my mind because Green Arrow is so awesome and powerful a personality he can influence Clark a.k.a. the “Blurr.” After Lex “dies” Tess enters the show pretty quick picking up where Lex left off but Clark actually gets to her and turns her, at least that’s what it looks like so far. There are many cameos from DC universe characters but so far my top 5 character cameos are:
5.Impulse aka the Flash
Clark is so close to realizing his Superman destiny you can feel it at this point.
The April 29th Episode
It was a setting up episode for the darkness aka Darkseid. Clark went into the Phantom zone looking for answers and Oliver forces his way into this episode by pushing Clark into the portal leading to the PZ. They meed the 2 in 1 Zod with old phantom Zod that destroyed Krypton possessing new clone Zod that tried to take over Earth. With double the hate Zod pits Oliver and Clark against each other trying to use the darkness in Oliver to get him on his side. Then there are reminders that the Wedding is days away. (YAY…. in the most girly voice possible) Great episode Clark dawned a red cape which made this episode even better but watching him a Oliver fight was totally awesome.
Hard for me to type this as I shake in anticipation for the series Finale on May 13th or maybe it’s the Parkinson’s rearing its ugly head….. Either way cant wait.
