  • An episode of Lois and Clark in which the overacting villain is more amusing than annoying.

    8.0
    \"Virtually Destroyed\" follows Lois and Clark as they work to escape the virtual world that Lex Luthor\'s son has trapped them in. Without his powers, Clark has to try desperately to find another way to defeat \"X,\" the alias Jaxson Xavier has established for his unbeatable alter ego that only exists in his computer-generated world.



    The funniest part of this episode was definetely the villain. Andy Berman\'s character is easy to laugh at because of his ridiculous ideas to win over Lois and get the information he needs to have complete control over the virtual world. His banter with the computer would be tedious to listen to, but Berman\'s mannerisms keep the dialogue comical. His childish temper that flares up whenever Lois is close with Clark and his nerdy snicker makes the audience easily pity him.



    Clark revealing that he has not crossed the \"intimacy threshold\" was another poignant part of this episode because it was a twist most people were not expecting. Lois\' reaction is priceless, making the couple even more endearing than usual. It helps to highlight the innocent aspect of Clark\'s character, and how it meshes perfectly with Lois\' tough attitude.



    Jimmy\'s participation in this episode was fun to watch because he played a key role in saving the day, rather than just providing information for our usual heroes. Jimmy probably could have done more in the episode, which would have been more interesting, but seeing more of Justin Whalin was a nice change.



    The episode is a little cheesy and predictable like usual, but with some new faces and a small plot twist, it was quite enjoyable to watch.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Lex Luthor wanted all his children to have an "X" in their name. He and Lois chose four possible names for their own children, the "X" names being Alexis, Roxanne, and Lynx. (The fourth name was Lois's own personal choice -- Clark!)

    • Goof: At one point, the muscular version of X rubs the blade of his knife with his left hand, but when the shot changes to Superman on the floor, X's left hand is pointed at Superman.

    • Goof When Lois and Clark share a virtual kiss, their arms stay relatively still, but their actual arms are moving quite a bit, as if they were stroking each other.

    • We see that Clark has a higher than human heart rate, but also enough control over his pulse to mimic the norm as needed.

    • We find out only Lois has had a sexual relationship, meaning Clark/Superman is a virgin.

    • Goof: When Lois and Clark are at Gabby's cafe in virtual world, Lois is seen sitting across from Clark. When the camera cuts to Jaxon and we see them on the monitor, she is sitting next to him, when we cut back to virtual world, they are across from one another again and then Lois moves her chair next to Clark.

    • Nitpick: When Jimmy and Superman enter the VR world to fight Jaxon, Jimmy sees Clark (Jaxon in disguise) without his glasses. Since Superman told Jimmy that no matter what, it wasn't Clark, wouldn't Jimmy piece together that Clark and Superman were one and the same?

    • Nitpick: In this episode, Clark works up the nerve to tell Lois he's still a virgin, but wouldn't it have made more sense for him to make that admission in "Chip Off The Old Clark", where a woman was accusing him of fathering her love child?

    • As Jaxon (disguised as Clark) enters Lois' virtual apartment you can see a toy shark swimming in the fish tank.
