8 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Oh boy. If there's any Smallville tradition more boring than the "Lana Gets Possessed" episodes, it's the always dull "Clark Becomes Big Brother to a Troubled Youth" episode. This time the troubled youth comes free with a heavy handed and very forced immigration story. Like pretty much every other TV show, when a political message gets tacked on to what's supposed to be an entertainment show it just gets annoying. If you want to add a political or social message to a show, make it entertaining at least. This is about as boring as season 6 gets. There is a bit of a bright moment. We are treated to another small peek at Lex's level 33.1 after the tease in the previous week. It would have been a little better if this peek came back in season 4 when it was originally introduced.
