    What Martha Kent shot!

    Lex did it.

    Lex is invulnerable.

    I marvel that Tess has the strength to make incredibly hard choices in her attempt to mercy kill Lex. It parallels one of the main themes in this show that Clark does not want anyone else to take any risks especially to protect him and yet Clark constantly hovers over making any kind of decision. A hero, a true hero must not hesitate he must act. Clark does not act, but everyone around does and all to protect him and he gets mad at them.

    Interesting to note that with clone Lex, doomed to die, doomed to lose his memories and in an invulnerable body (wonder how that happened?) he seems to become the perfect empty vessel for the dark cloud that is Darkseid to occupy and rule the world, cause we all know that will happen cause Clark can't make a decision to do anything in case anyone gets hurt.

    I always did like that this show showed that "older" folks can be in love and involved with others their age. Martha had both Jonathan and Lionel. I think if our world's Lionel had lived it is possible he and Martha might have ended up together. I wonder how Clark would have handled having Lionel Luthor as a stepdad?

    I am really enjoying having Chloe back. it feels like the show has heart again. I loved the trust episode but hated the blatant Matrix concepts rip off.

    We noticed that too. i really felt for Tess in that scene.

    Bearcata - Don't forget her relationship with Perry White also. I agree with your comments. it was funny to see Clark struggle with seeing his mom as a woman with a relationship as opposed to just "mom".

    I've loved how she's grown as a character, though I wasn't crazy about her with Oliver
    Now see, I love her with Olliver. i think they have mad chemistry together and I think she's deserving of a hot man of her own who appreciates her for who she is. She didn't have the best relationship track record on this show and Clark repeatedly stomped all over her emotions (she was too subtle for his thickheadedness) so I like to see her snoogling with Ollie.

    1. thanks for reminding me of the Perry White relationship. You go Martha.

    2. Love that Chloe is back because to me she is the perfect mix of hero, the total package. Doing the right thing, making the hard choices but also living life day to day and appreciating it without all the dark angst of the Dark Knight or Clark and other "flawed" heroes. On top of all that she physically is the girl next door, not the tall leggy model type that Lois is and guys dream about and usually get the heroine part. Having Chloe get involved with a dweeb like Jimmy Olsen was an insult to her and her character's accomplishments. Although at first I thought Chloe and Ollie were a mismatch. I realized that I had been brainwashed from years of TV and movie watching where the stereotypical heroine was the tall model like one and the normal girl, althought smart, was regulated to sidekick and the male leftovers. Now that I see Ollie and Chloe they seem well matched. One can actually say that Chloe is above Ollie and that he is lucky he has her.

    to all of the above! I also wasn't happy at first with Ollie and Chloe...it seemed too much like she was getting Lois' leftovers, and he was getting Clark's....that they would both have preferred to be with someone else...but now they really seem to fit. My Sig. Other walked in when I was watching C&O in bed together, and asked when I'd taken up soft core porn. And I agree, he seemed at first too far up the dating scale for her, gorgeous zillionaire and all, but now she seems much more powerful and a stronger person than he is... and he seems lucky to have her.

    Re: Smallville

    I can't decide if I'm happy or sad that Clark has started to become his dorky, clutzy alter ego. I love the strong, confident Clark! The show is definitely starting to wrap up; makes me sad.

    And when they showed the Omega symbol on Oliver's head - noooo!!!!

    Re: Smallville

    I liked when that guy at the crime scene said that Clark "acted like a policeman, and walked like a fireman." It's so true - he was always sort of stomping around. Sad to see the Omega on Ollie. I thought he looked superhot when he and Chloe were having their discussion about her past, etc. Between that scene and the scene with Clark and Lois where he explains why Clark Kent is the mask, it seemed like the show grew up all of a sudden. Generally the dialogue is trite and cliched but those scenes were pretty impressive. I still have a hard time believing that I've been watching this show for an entire decade.

    FYI and a historical note:

    Joanne Siegel, Widow of Superman Co-Creator Jerry Siegel, Dies at 93 - Heat Vision

    Joanne Siegel, Widow of Superman Co-Creator Jerry Siegel, Dies at 93

    She served as the model for Superman's love interest Lois Lane.


    February 15 1:46 AM 2/15/2011 by THR staff


    Joanne Siegel, the widow of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel who also served as the model for Superman's love interest Lois Lane, died Monday at age 93.

    Joanne Siegel met her future husband and fellow Superman co-creator Joe Shuster in Cleveland during the 1930s when she was a teen, according to Cleveland's Plain Dealer. Shuster contacted her after she placed an ad in the Plain Dealer offering to model, but she didn't realize that she would become the inspiration for Lois Lane.

    There reportedly have been many Cleveland women claiming they were the basis for Lois Lane, but Jerry Siegel insisted it was Joanne, while admitting that some of the other women's traits may have influenced the character as well.


    Early on, Jerry Siegel and Shuster tried to sell Superman to newspaper syndicates but failed. They then turned to DC Comics, which bought the character, who made his first appearance in Action Comics No. 1 in 1938.

    Ten years later, Jerry Siegel wed Joanne following his divorce from Bella Siegel.

    But Jerry Siegel struggled in his career throughout the late 1950s and '60s, finding it hard to come by work as a comic-book writer. In the late 1970s, as Warner Bros. was gearing up to release a Superman movie, the Siegels convinced DC Comics to give the Superman creators a lifelong stipend.

    Jerry Siegel died in 1999. Three years later, the Siegel and Shuster families filed for partial ownership of the character. In 2008, a federal judge ruled that the families do own a large share of Superman, but the litigation against Warner Bros. is ongoing.

    The Siegels' daughter, Laura Siegel Larson, is making the funeral arrangements her mother.

    Re: Smallville

    In the previous Superman TV series (the name of which I'm completely blanking on), the one with Teri Hatcher as Lois, one of the great lines I've always remembered was one Clark says to Lois during a brief period when she knew his secret identity... "Clark Kent is who I AM, Superman is what I DO" reflecting that Superman was the "disguise", not Clark.
