'Smallville' - 'Upgrade' Recap

'Smallville' - 'Upgrade'
(S09E17) Five episodes left in this ninth season, so General Zod needs to start putting together whatever his endgame plan is going to be. Steps were definitely taken toward that this week, but first we got the return of one of Superman's deadliest foes: Metallo.

It's always nice to see Brian Austin Green, and he's actually quite effective in this role. I was a little disappointed in how quickly they were able to re-establish his character in whatever way they needed him for this week, but I'll forgive it because it was so much fun seeing almost everyone else turned on their ears.

Checkmate and The Wall took a break from intimidating everyone and pushing Tess around, which freed Tess up to make an unexpected alliance. Also missing from the fun was Green Arrow, but there was plenty of action without them.

Smallville: Rabid

smallville rabid(S09E03) Who knew the Smallville zombie episode would turn out to be such a bummer? Our heroes did nothing but whine, brood, and talk about their lonely lives while the almost undead were chompin' on people's limbs.

Where were the fun Grindhouse-style action sequences with the good guys firing sawed-off shotguns and revving up chainsaws? Where were the decapitations? And where were the jokes? You'd think a show about Superman fighting zombies would have plenty of jokes.

I understand that every piece of zombie art can't be as fun and clever as Zombieland, or as gloriously gory as 28 Days Later, but I was hoping for something a little more off the wall here.

Smallville: Power

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 30th 2009 3:00AM
Smallville(S08E13) Consider that she's a recurring guest-star, a Lana-centric episode was something of a surprise. However, since she and Clark have a lot of history, it's also a necessity in order for Clark to move on.

I didn't like this episode. The writing seemed more cliché and the acting more melodramatic than usual (and that's saying a lot), and the pacing of the direction seemed off. I will give Allison Mack the benefit of the doubt because it was her first time as a director (and she's just so darned cute).

The backstory was okay. I was even a little jealous because in the beginning of the show, I always fantasized about torturing the ever-whiny Lana. Okay, maybe not actually torture her, but I still found her annoying. Even worse, Kristen Kreuk's performance in this episode sort of reminded me of early Lana.

Doomsday attacks in Thursday's Cloverfield-esque Smallville

Smallville Sam Witwer DoomsdayToday's stream of Smallville-related news continues. We reported earlier that the show's former producers, Al Gough and Miles Millar, are writing a movie version of the Robotech TV series. Now, it looks like their small screen predecessors are looking to the big screen for inspiration.

Actually, Smallville has never shied away from ripping off borrowing ideas and concepts from movies. Just last week, Chloe (Allison Mack) experienced a memory meltdown right out of Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This Thursday, the show will dip into J.J. Abrams territory with a monster attack shot in Cloverfield POV style. That's monster's name, of course, is Doomsday.

Smallville: Identity

Smallville(S08E07) "He's just a regular guy." - Chloe about Clark

It smells like sweeps time when you get rocking episodes such as "Identity." Episodes filled with action, mythology and storyline developments. And when Smallville is concerned, you have to add the "one step closer for Clark to become Superman" factor to really have a truly rewarding episode. For me, "Identity" displayed all four elements and almost made me forget that Lex left the building.

The cast of Smallville at Comic-Con 2008

In one of the rowdiest panels of the Con, the stars and writers of the CW's Smallville took to the stage on the last day of the convention. Moderated by Joseph Loeb, the panel featured Allison Mack (Chloe), Justin Hartley (Green Arrow), new stars Sam Witwer (Doomsday), Cassiday Freeman (Tess), and showrunners Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer. It was a panel full of spoilers, fan appreciation, and a good amount of name plaque requests.

Some of what is upcoming during season 8 can be found after the jump.

Allison Mack will be in Smallville next season after all

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 15th 2008 10:43AM
Allison MackSmallville fans, you can finally resume breathing. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster due to the fact the two creators left the show, because of the departure of Michael Rosenbaum and the announcement that two new regulars would join and because of contract negotiations for Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack.

It was confirmed pretty early on that Kreuk would only be a part-timer next season. However, Mack's future with the show was up in the air. Actually, it was even talked that she would not be returning because she couldn't reach an agreement with The CW show. The latter news was supported by the fact her name was omitted earlier this week in the network's Upfront press release.

Will Smallville season eight be sans Chloe as well?

by Brad Trechak, posted May 8th 2008 6:03PM

Allison Mack as Chloe SullivanThey've lost Lex Luthor and Lana Lang as regulars, and now it looks like Chloe Sullivan might also be swept from Season 8 of Smallville. TV Guide reports that Allison Mack, the actress who plays Chloe, is in negotiations for her contract.

This could go either way. The show is suffering from the loss of Michael Rosenbaum and Kristen Kreuk as regulars, which is likely why Mack's people are now trying to negotiate her contract. As the article mentions, without Chloe it becomes Lois and Clark: The Early Years.

Smallville's Chloe to appear in the comics

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 17th 2007 8:07PM
Allison MackWhen Smallville premiered a little over seven years ago, a few fans were unhappy about the addition of Chloe Sullivan, a character that never appeared in any Superman comics, movies, etc. As time went by, fans embraced this Smallville-created character to a point that they were unhappy when rumors of her being written off the show a while back were leaked on the web. Luckily, it never happened and Chloe Sullivan not only stayed on the show, got a job at the Daily Planet but was given a power.

TV Guide reports that DC Comics' Superman will take cue from The CW's show and include Chloe in an upcoming edition of the comic book.

Smallville: Static

Clark Kent and the Cookie of Destiny
Lex is phase-shifted or something into another dimension, where he can look and listen, but not touch. You'd think that Lex would like this situation, at least temporarily, as gathering secret intelligence on loved ones is one of favorite pastimes. Chloe tells Lana that seeing Lex turn into static is no stranger than a lot of things that have happened in Smallville. Not to mention on multiple episodes of various Star Trek series. Because of this dilemma, the episode is packed to the gills with Lex/Lana longing for each other across a void.

Hey, from a distance, the evil nerd who imprisons Lex looks a bit like a young version of Heroes' Horn-Rim Glasses Guy. In the end, Black-Rimmed Glasses Kid will prove to be no match for Jimmy Olsen's ham radio skills.
