Last week's spooky Smallville was some insane amalgam of The Wicker Man, Robin Williams' Jack, and Tommy Wiseau's The Room. It combined country bumpkin human sacrifices with a creepy turbo-aging Lex Luthor with softcore erotica...with Superman!
Friday's episode of Smallville, "Isis," was a villain-of-the-week tale punctuated by moments of intense cuteness. Smallville is at its best with a little levity, but man, they are layering on the love. Also, Green Arrow got his own breakfast cereal!
Friday's Smallville, "Homecoming," was a change of pace from what we've seen thus far this season. An old villain returned in an unexpected way, Clark flash-forwarded to the Metropolis of 2017, and 90% of the episode took place in Smallville.
Last Friday's Smallville, "Supergirl," was an insane hodgepodge. Kara came back to lecture Clark and take glamour shots, Lois masqueraded as a dominatrix at Club Desaad, and Darkseid took over an ersatz Glenn Beck who called superheroes "mutants." Whuh?
The latest episode of Smallville, "Shield," maintained the rapid pace of the season premiere by introducing a slew of "Smallvillized" DC characters like Deadshot and Cat Grant. Also, Clark ditches the trenchcoat for a snazzy new jacket.
"Lazarus," the first episode of Smallville's tenth and final season, resurrects old foes and introduces new nasties. It also packs a million things into a scant 60 minutes, but this rapid-fire pacing ultimately works. Here's our 99% spoiler-free review.
On the Smallville season finale - "Salvation" - the messiah metaphors were groan-worthy, the action was gee-whiz, one star's face was blown off, and there was a slew of spandex-clad set-up for next season. Spoilers on!
On Friday's Smallville, Martha Kent stopped by the farm (with Perry White in tow), Maxwell Lord practiced some psychic surgery, the identity of the Red Queen is revealed, and everyone (and their mother) needs the Book of Rao. Spoilers on!
On Friday's Smallville, "Sacrifice," a bunch of characters died, one hero was mutilated, and a certain femme fatale kicked it (only to come back from the dead minutes later). Richard Pryor with a sombrero this show ain't. Spoilers ahead.
On Friday's Smallville – "Charade" – Lois finds herself betwixt allegiances to Clark and the Blur, Maxwell Lord showed up to brain-drain Lois, and our reporters get canned from the Daily Planet. Also, never date Clark Kent. He'll stalk ya.
On last Friday's Smallville ("Upgrade"), Metallo jumped up to get beat down, Clark acted like a creepy boyfriend (both with and without the influence of red Kryptonite), and Zod became the new Kryptonian messiah.
After last week's Smallville (in which Clark explained how he could control his supersonic orgasms), this week's episode - "Checkmate" - was a nice palate cleanser. It wasn't revolutionary, but where else can you see Pam Grier versus Martian Manhunter?
On last Friday's Smallville, every main character got laid, Clark stammered cryptically about dirty dancing lessons he got from Jor-El, and Silver Banshee showed up to die immediately. It was exactly like the 1950s George Reeves serials, but with fornication.
If Smallville: Absolute Justice was a stealth pilot for a Justice Society show, we're in... But not until someone works out a way to make Hawkman look less ridiculous with those giant wings of his. Spoilers!
Alas, poor Smallville supporting character. We knew you well, but that wasn't enough to save you from Doomsday (in a very literal sense). But that's not all that happened in last night's finale. Spoilers!
Last night saw the return of Smallville with the show's most anticipated episode this season for comic geeks. But how did the Legion of Super-Heroes (and writer Geoff Johns) hold up in their series debut?
There's no way to get around it: this week's Smallville was a return to the campy old days when they'd just steal the plot of a movie, make it a little more family friendly, insert a DC Comics character and then hope that no-one would notice. This time around, Maxima came to Earth searching for her perfect man, but…
Last night's Smallville didn't just give you a very rushed version of the origin of Green Arrow, it also gave any over-partying celeb the perfect excuse for whatever drunken behavior they want. Just stumble forward into someone's arms and remember to say these magic words: "I've been poisoned... I only have twelve…
Last night's Smallville managed the impressive feat of simultaneously feel like an episode of the first few seasons of the show with their "meteor freak of the week" format while also demonstrating how far (some) characters have come in the last few years of the series. They also introduced the hunky new medic who's…
Last night's season finale for Smallville ended on a big "I love you but I have to do this" cliffhanger (as Smallville so often does). Find out if Lana and Clark get back together, what terrible thing happens to Chloe (something always does), what's Lex plotting, and why Kara has been so moody lately. Full recap of…
