Cleared out a tape from 2005. It opened with the ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Lexmas’ in which Lex gets shot for the 500th time and his crazy dead mother gives him a vision of how his life could be. Lex hallucinates himself living a hand to mouth existence with Lana and their son Alex. Also Lana is ‘pregnant’/has a pillow shoved under her jumper. Lex is not meditative or prosaic about this stupid hallucination and finds it advantageous to discard it. He wakes up to find himself alone in a dark hospital ward at Christmas while the friends who abandoned him are at a Christmas party ignoring his plight. Clark makes moron faces and strides around. Chloe acts in a borderline offensive manner. This was spectacularly crap. Clark and his mates are ecstatic jerks. TPTB always gave Lana way too much importance and made Clark into a mad callous narcissist.
Then came the ‘SG1’ ep ‘Crusade’ in which Vala pops up to give a warning about the Ori. She’s living on an Ori world where the Ori provide tidier streets and a quasi-medieval lifestyle. Tomin debuts. TPTB wasted him and the Ori. Tomin does longing sighs, the Ori plan a crusade and Tomin’s preconceived notions can’t be broken. Anti-Ori types evince a plan, it fails. This was dull and grating. Why do so many aliens in ‘SG1’ live such anachronistic lives? Why does everyone talk in arch, ingratiating and wacky cute fashion?
“Whose baby is it?”
“Evil must not be allowed to fester anywhere!”
“Gods cannot be gods without those who stand beneath them gazing upwards.”
“Risked everything to save it and smuggle it out of the city.”
“The unbelievers far away.”
Then came an ‘Invasion’ ep ‘Power’ in which the cultured aesthete Tom and the kids go on a trip. The snotty alien teenager (Elisabeth Moss) joins Tom’s private alien army. Russell stomps around, Larkin is bibulous, Mariel is conversant and a new world is envisioned. This had no joy, dignity or honour present.
“Stop walking away from me!”
“Does he know that I know?”
“His office has no windows?”
“Maybe he’s a vampire too.”
Finally there was another ‘Smallville’ ep ‘Fanatic’ in which the ridiculous Jonathan Kent running for public office against Lex plotline drags on. What informed voter would vote for Jonathan who looks unlithe in a suit and has Lois Lane as a campaign manager? Lex has another crazy stalker, Clark yells at Lana for going to college and studying astronomy. Lionel bustles about and this was crap.
“Nice deflection, I don’t fall for that anymore.”
“Please don’t make me finish this sentence Clark.”
