I'm the angriest woman alive!
21 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

In this episode, Clark asked Lois to be a date at a dance, and I was so hyped! I was watching them dancing, full of euphoria...but sadly, it stopped. The storyline moved on in mere seconds. Boo hiss, Larry Ditillio! Boo hiss!

All joking aside, that...actually annoyed me a lot. Heh heh. But I know that Clois-shipping is not everyone's number one priority (for some weird reason), so how about the rest of the episode?

It had nice moments for sure, but overall it was a bit on the so-so side. It's rather odd that a magical supervillain should offer Superman barely any challenge at all, considering that's generally cited as one of the few areas in which he has no advantage over any regular person, but well, that's how it happened. Bonechill's character design was also VERY weak, even by this show's not-super-high standards - he literally just looked like a man in a lame, very simple Halloween costume. I don't expect the villains in a kids' show like this to be authentically creepy, necessarily, but he was so much the utter and complete opposite of scary that it was actually distracting. Plus, the villain's motivations were never explained - why does this random guy want all this power? He even says he wants to destroy the world at one point...WHY? He LIVES on the world!

It certainly wasn't horrible, and it's not as if this show's other episodes are masterpieces or anything, but there was nothing about it that was too great either. And I'm still mad that I didn't get my Clois scene. Early on in the episode I was actually enjoying myself a lot, but that eventually fizzled as not enough interesting was being done with the potential it had.

On the upside, I actually really liked the "Superman Family Album" segment in which Clark got his driver's license. Sometimes I don't even bother commenting on them because there's not much to say, but for some reason I just found this one very charming. I guess I really, really like the idea of seeing Superman dealing with everyday stuff like this, just like all of us have to do.
