I enjoyed Smallville, Season 2 a bit better than I enjoyed the first season. I guess that’s to be expected since some of the questions from the first season are answered in the second season. I was a big fan of the introduction of Christopher Reeve into the series – nice touch acknowledging one of the previous and most well-known Superman actors in recent history. Hehehe – maybe they’ll have Dean Cain on a future season!
Sorry for that stupid diversion…
Season 1 ended with a very interesting twist, having the storm completely mess up then entire town. I will say that some of the stupid high school drama parts of the first season re-entered during the second season, but that’s also to be expected…especially when young adults is the primary audience of this series. I’m not sure how I feel about the introduction of “red meteor rocks” into the storyline, but I guess we’ll see how that goes. Seems like it might just be a waste of time in the long run – or it could act as one of the only things that turns Clark into a “bad guy” for a little while.
The episode where Lionel’s ex-mistress claims that Clark is her son was a little weird. I don’t know if I even like introducing that into the storyline. I’m sure the writers have it all figured out, though.
The part of season two that I hated the absolute worst was the death of Ryan – that’s ridiculous. There was no reason to have him die. Ooooo…an incurable brain tumor…oooooo, real original! What is this? A weekday soap opera? Weak storyline, really. Oh, but on the other hand – I did enjoy the final removal of Whitney. That guy was a punk and a crappy character. The kid seemed like a decent actor, but what a shit-tastic story he was given, huh?
I liked the ending of the season, with Clark going apeshit and moving to Metropolis. They could really have a good extension on that with the beginning of Season 3 – so we’ll see how they do with it.
Good job, Smallville writers!
