Chloe Sullivan: [referring to the 'Lex Luthor donates mllions to rebuild city' article] How's this for a megadose of guilt money?
Clark Kent: Well, I've got bigger news.
Chloe Sullivan: What happened? Is everything all right?
Clark Kent: [lowers his voice dramatically, making sure no one listens] I sneezed.
Chloe Sullivan: And...?
Clark Kent: "And?" Chloe, that's not normal.
Chloe Sullivan: Well, Clark, nothing with you is exactly normal. But I wouldn't call sneezing today's headline.

Fairly good episode... but something's wrong there
15 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Sneeze is the second episode of the sixth season of Smallville. It's pretty good, although there are some ironic elements, it does have a lot of good stuff in it.

I liked the introduction of Green Arrow and the mystery that is surrounding his character. I also liked the character that kidnapped Lex and his sadistic way of trying to learn about Lex's ability. But let's face it, the second episodes of every season this series has had so far have been much better. Mainly because the situations around the season finales hadn't even been solved yet. There was always need of two episodes to solve whatever has been going on the past season, but with this season ultra fast and conclusive "Zod" (don't get me wrong, I think this was a good episode, but with some mistakes too), Sneeze was just a regular episode that could've been fitted at the middle of the season and the change would've had almost no effect whatsoever in the continuity.

Maybe I'm being too harsh on the writing, but it is a fact that the events that happened during the last season finale could've lasted for at least one more episode and the narrative would've felt better.

I'm really hoping that as time passes, this season of Smallville improves. It's not that it's bad, but after the fantastic season 5 I was just hoping for something else, something better. I'm looking forward for next week's Wither, in the hope that this does get better.
