    Anyone still watching?

    I think the season started off well, they didn't drag out Clark's non-powers issue, and they've successfully moved Clark into Metropolis, at the daily planet, and teamed with Lois Lane in one episode, something that should have been done 4 years ago.

    Couple that with tonights episode (ep 2), where they started setting up an "evil team", run by Lex's temp replacement while he is "missing".

    So, better so far.

    I've decided to give this season 5 episodes to prove itself. While I agree that they should have moved Clark to Metropolis years ago, doing it all in one episode felt terribly rushed.

    So far though, I have to say the first 2 episodes felt much better put together than almost any episode last season. I was just about ready to give up back then, but it's definitely looking better now.

    I lost interest in last season finale, the wrietrs keep shoving stuff in with no connection or logic, when season 8 airs over here, I'll probably give it a final chance.

    i do love how they are starting to take the show towards the actual superman mythos its a nice change and the injustice league sweet. also erica is hot and doesnt mind showing it off in the buff. watch house of the dead if you want to know what i mean. but i digress love where the show is going and really hope they break part of gough and millers 2 rules no tights,no flights. cause as of right now he really should be able to fly and since they both left the show let him fly please.

    The first two episodes were not disappointing. Here are a few things that have gotten my attention:

    1. Cloe: Is she the real Cloe or is she really Brainiac? More like Brainiac 5 (the good Brainiac)? She couldn't heal Clark and somehow she can now think faster than a computer. Could it be that when Brainiac poked her last season that he somehow grew a conscious? Or is that Brainiac officially dead and somehow Cloe is becoming more like Brainiac?

    2. Davis Bloome: Okay, so WTF happened to him at the end of episode 2? Did he try to commit suicide (because he couldn't have Cloe) and jumped out of the building naked and revived? He is eventually going to become Doomsday so something is up. And where exactly was he going to take Plastique? He mentioned someplace but is he actually working for Tess Mercer?

    3. "New Team": So any guesses as to this new team being formed? Extreme Justice? Injustice League? Suicide Squad? Task Force X? or The Legion of Doom? It would be cool having this team be called The Legion of Doom since The Legion of Superheroes is supposed to make an appearance later on in the season (which I can't wait for if what I hear about them is true).

    I enjoyed tonight's episode and I liked how they tied in Ollie's origin into it. Also cool how "Mercy" tied into everything and ended up killing the bad guy at the end and getting revenge. Also looks like Chloe does have part of Brainiac in her...

    Interesting. Did Clark really know that Lionel killed the Queens?

    I read a link off of USA Today's website that this season may not be the last for Smallville. They are thinking about a ninth season for sure.

    ....I can't remember this scene at all. Which is really confusing as I remember most of that ep...I think...

    Interesting news on the Legion though. That should be fun.

    X, I assumed to be Lex.

    Last night's episode was the standard fare of corny Smallville episodes that they do every once in awhile. Maxima, indeed, was the best thing going. Long legs and red hair....delicioso!

    Last night was the first ep in awhile that I've watched of Smallville and I still think the show is cheesy. There's nothing redeeming about it whatsoever. Clark barely used his powers. Isnt that the point of the show?
