    I was on the Smallville Forums and I asked the question how many times LeX luthor was knocked out?

    Turns out it was 49 times in 7 seasons. So we got to talking and Everyone remembered Giles from Buffy getting knocked out often. I was wondering if their was an exact number or a site like the Superman one.

    This is a great question. Giles getting knocked out happened often enough that Cordy remarked in Gingerbread

    Cordelia : "I came over here to tell Buffy to stop this craziness, and found you all unconscious - again. How many times have you been knocked out, anyway? I swear, one of these times, you're going to wake up in a coma."

    Now I'm going to have to go back and start the Giles knock out count!

    Thanks for the awesome question!

    Giles was knocked out a total of 19 times in the duration of the TV series, 1. The Witch - Catherine pushes a table against him

    2. NKABOTFD - Andrew, the vampire, throws him into the crematory controls

    3. The Pack - The evil zookeeper hits him in the gut with his staff and again on the back

    4. Prophecy Girl - Buffy punches him

    5. When She Was Bad - Vampires

    6. Inca Mummy Girl - Ampata strangles him and then tosses him into the coffin

    7. Bad Eggs - After killing the Bezoar, everyone is unconscious

    8. Passion - After going after Angelus for killing Jenny, he's unconscious for a few moments.

    9. Becoming Part 1 - Dru's gang knocks him out

    10. Beauty and the Beasts - Buffy accidentally shoots him with a tranquilizer gun

    11. Homecoming - Candy and Lyle Gorch knock him out

    12. Revelations - Gwendolyn hits him over the head

    13. Gingerbread - MOO uses chloroform

    14. Pangs - ??? Did the warrior knock him out after hitting his head repeatedly against the wall?

    15. Doomed - Well, those demons whaled on him pretty good. Might have been knocked out.

    16. Buffy Vs. Dracula - Giles falls through the door and is knocked unconscious until Dracula's "ladies" awaken him.

    17. Flooded - When the M'Fashnik Demon knocked him out: "Well; now I know I'm back in America as I've been knocked unconscious."

    18. Tabula Rasa - Giles and the rest of the gang are knocked out by Willow's spell.

    19. Grave - Giles passes out after his magical battle with Dark Willow.

    I missed a few of these, I found it on a site after a google search. :-)

    Ya, I have watched Smallville since it came out, but I always kind of hated some of the frequent plot devices. ie. Krypto freak of the week, Amnesia, Knocked unconscious etc....



    In some ways the earlier season were a little like Buffy, I think Smallville even had some of the Buffy Writers and I know James Marsters was on for a couple of seasons as Brainiac.



    Though, I was kind of happy when Lana got knocked out so often on the show..lol


    Giles I would have guessed in the upper 20's as far as getting knocked out....seems a little low to me.

    lol smallville makes me want clark and lana together so much i hate that they kept them together for so long just to break them up, they should of just been together for one season or something lol, i agree with the way they always cover things up - like someone gets knocked out, or someone gets amnesia or we go back in time .. its all pretty much the same each time lol interesting in buffy how people hardly ever see buffy doing her slayer stuff .. like when oz finds out about the vampires thats pretty much the only time you get to see someone find out the secret without gettin knocked out or something lol (if that makes sense lol i know what i mean ...)

    Clark and Lana had more off and on then Ross and Rachael in Friends. You kind of wanted them to stay together, but I like where they went recently with the show. I certainly wish Buffy and or Angel would have lasted as long as Smallville has. I think simple plot devices work wonders, and their are a lot of similar things with the shows. Both shows love to kill regular characters off, both had the freak of the week thing, both deal with saving the world and their was even a Smallville episode that featured Vampires and the head Vampire was named "Buffy"

    Buffy is far superior to Smallville, IMO. I watched and enjoyed Smallville for 6 seasons, and will proably end up catching the last few seasons on DVD when I get around to it, but they are in no way comparable.

    Perhaps in formula, but not in quality.

    I agree. I watched two seasons of "Smallville" but that was enough for me. Not a bad show at all, but I think "Buffy" is much better, by a long shot. They are very different, but I prefer the Buffster. *grin*.

    I like Smallville well enough but their just never gonna let it end. They think because they have the rights to superman that they can go on forever. I haven't watched it since season 7 but I can't help but think it wore out its welcome.

    Kennedy should have been one million. Mwuahaha. She should have just had a brain tumour and died instantly. As soon as she walked in.
