Smart televisual roller coaster beyond fiction, 23 April 2011
Author: igoatabase from France

Season 9 had Warrior, now season 10 has Booster. The actor who portrayed the golden superhero should be listed in the top 5 of Smallville guests. From the outfit to the acting it's the most entertaining character of the season so far and I can't see anyone who could beat him. The few visual effects featured in his scenes were also both mind blowing and funny. The smile one was just hilarious. So I'm definitely a member of his fan club ! But beneath his mask we also perceived the mere mortal and the story he told Clark at the end was very moving. Things can get really intense on the show when you can relate fictional elements to real ones. As Geoff Johns wrote it my usual line would be to congratulate him but it would be disrespectful toward the other people who contributed to its tremendous success.

Indeed for once I have not a single complain about this installment. From top to bottom it was just superb. Comparing it to past episodes would be just pointless because it's almost a TV movie to itself. In fact it's the very first time I feel like being part of something special. How lucky for our generation to have both witnessed the beginning and ending of Smallville. Yes because as far as I'm concerned the show is over. Booster was the finale I was waiting for. In fact it can be considered as Tom Welling's testament as a director and actor on the show. His identity crisis was masterfully developed and its arc a perfect sequel to Masquerade. You thought you knew Superman ? Well think twice ! After Star Trek was cancelled back in 1969 Leonard Nimoy published two autobiographies. The first in 1977 and titled I Am Not Spock. Fans misunderstood it because it wasn't at all about Nimoy rejecting his character. However he heard their complains and in 1995 he published I Am Spock to atone for his mistake. Well in my humble opinion Welling is to Smallville who Nimoy is and will ever be to Star Trek. You Are Smallville ? Just a title I coined for you Tom because I know you've been watching us. The Blur is no fiction. He's real, pure flesh and bones.

Beside my whole role model theory there would be zillions of elements to mention but enumerating them seems just pointless. A bully turned into an Iron Man-like creature ? Please forgive my infinite knowledge when it comes to comics. Cat Grant versus Lois ? I'm in luv with Emilie Ullerup ! His high-pitched voice could break a bulletproof window and a blonde has never been so… well blonde but I can't help finding her attractive ? No way ! Irresistible ? Highly improbable ! Next in the pros list we have… Geeks are sleek ? Viewers who heard Lois saying "From sleek to geek" about Clark's metamorphosis got it all wrong. Trust me if you can ! Erica Durance is such a nerd at times she should just bunker herself in a… phone booth ? It leads us to the epic sequence featuring CK. Slow motion, VFX, shiny outfit… It had it all and even its editing was flawless ! Last but not least the end felt like the refreshing shower you take right after working out, or something else. Durance & Welling's chemistry has reached a level where you can't make the difference between reality and fiction. Abyssal immersion ! From their lines to acting it was just heavenly and full of emotional intelligence. Lois & Clark ? Forever.
