Smallville Season-Eight *Spoilers*

So, with the show-runners leaving, along with Lex Luthor, & Lana & Supergirl only appearing in a select number of episodes, what can we expect from S8?

Lex will be replaced by a new female character, that looks after LexCorp in his absence.

Comicbook, uber-villian, Doomsday will appear.

The Legion of Super-heroes will also make an appearance!

Clark starts working at the Daily Planet with Lois.

Lois starts to develop romantic feelings towards Clark.


Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse!

amen to that, brother. i'm actually ashamed of myself for being so weak. a real addiction would have at least been fun... some of the time.

I don't think there's enough interest in this anymore to warrant a thread for each episode, so i'll use this to provide my thoughts on episode four....

Very entertaining for once, obviously it had nothing to do with the Hot, sexy, semi-naked, red-headed, gorgeous Alien Babe that made an appearance.....



....Oh OK! .... it was just because of Maxima's presence.

I remember getting comicbook wood when her character appeared numerous times in the Superman comics of the late 80's/early 90's (not quite sure of the dates) ... I was impressed they retained her comicbook origins in the show.

There was also some nice foreshadowing of the Clark/Lois relationship. Not sure what they've done to Ms Lane though. I think she's either overdosing on the botox or they're doing some not-so-subtle tv-photoshopping on her face.

Also gotta love Chloe going all Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy on us.

Yup it has improved now Lana has gone though I miss Lex.

The forshadowing of the Lois /Clark relationship is pretty well handled and the pair of them on screen together is much more enjoyable than Lana and Clark.Taking it out of Smallville and having Clark at the planet has helped the show alot.

Maxima was pretty hot and I'm sure I saw some tongue there

Hmmm. Dropped out of Smallville around the Lexmas episode. Can't believe it was nearly 3 seasons ago. Have read the off episode synopsis here and there since, but seeing this Maxima has certainly peaked my interest.

Is it worth jumping back in, or should I stay away?

Maxima alone has almost made the last eight seasons seem worthwhile..

Am glad they are now starting to sort out the Lois/Clark stuff though.

Call me crazy.... but I think the beginning of this season is the best smallville has been since, well I don't know... a LONG time.
When Clark was without his powers at the start of the season he has an actual different character to him, he was more sarky and witty. There were actually some funny too and fros between him and Lois. As soon as he got his powers his demeanour changed to that serious, "well mannered" Superman character. That's pretty clever for smallville, script-wise.
Basically the episodes are resolved better, are more interesting/fun on a plot level and there's far far less boring crap.
If they wanted to turn this into the "New New Adventures of Lois and Clark" with a little more work I think they could pull it off. Those old show runners were clearly hack retards, the studio should have cleaned house a long time ago.

Judging by the description of this week's episode, it's gone totally all "Lois & Clark"



Sheeeeeesh, that's original!
