  • Smallville Season 8 jumpstarts.

    In many ways,this is the premiere of season 8.Odyssey gave you a feeling that the new showrunners were attempting to get rid of all the extra luggage weighing in from their predecessors.Plastique was fresh and unique.It's all about Clark getting started on the Daily Planet.Of course not everything worked perfectly.For example,Tom Welling and Erica Durance seem like they lack a bit in the chemistry department.It's understandable since we are used to Clark investigating along side Chloe.We also had the introduction of Davis Bloome aka Doomsday.Here is one annoying trait that the new producers inherited form Milar and Gough.They introduce a new DC character by adding him into a love story.And with Lana gone the obvious choice was Chloe.Even though they did seem to bond together i don't think the Chloe fans will be thrilled by seeing her flirt with another man(or monster) while she is engaged.And whoever thought Doomsday could fall in love.Of course he is not Doomsday yet.I have a good feeling about how they handle his metamorphosis.It was evident in the very last scene.Finally,i believe that Tess Mercer is progressing nicely.She is no Lex Luthor but she can be deceptive.For example,i thought she was atracted to Clark.And when she coldly said "And a liar" it was excellently delivered.Overall it was a very good episode apart from some details.Bring on Toxic.
