Storyline

Clark Kent is in nostalgic mood after Martha signs over the deed to the farm as a wedding present, wondering whether it suggests he and Lois should sell and move. Clark Luthor surprises him, using the mirror box and shattering it after having sent Kent to his world, then fool everyone for a while, in search of bloody vengeance on at least one Luthor. Kent finds himself, public enemy number one against whom everyone caries green kryptonite, at Oliver's funeral, where a bitter Jonathan scolds the 'scrooge'. Recognized and helped by the other Lois, he seeks to appease hatred and find a way back. Dr. Emil Hamilton frantically tries to repair the mirror-box, just in time. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Gold kryptonite is seen for the first time. In the comics, gold kryptonite permanently strips Kryptonians of their powers, by destroying the ability of their cells to process solar energy. Smallville's version of the Gold-K causes injuries that Kryptonians cannot heal from, as shown by Clark Luthor (Ultraman) having a permanent scar. See more »

Oneiric Strange Case and The New Adventures of Lois & Clark followed by In Bed with Tess Mercer ♥
23 April 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Did I just miss the continuation of the 10th and last season of Smallville ? Yes I did. Instead of dreaming that I flew both Lois Lane and Tess Mercer to the moon I should have just checked out the TV listings. Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. Well when it comes to the show I have to admit that my eyes tend to get all emotional and my feet to slightly hover. The cute little hummingbird wants his wings back and somehow Kent was a lot about setting Clark's free. Its story was too far-fetched in my opinion but overall it was entertaining enough and despite some flaws it's definitely the kind of family adventure you want to take to bed with you.

Indeed the first thing that stroke me about this 17th installment is the impact it should have on your mind. In my case it just made me happy and hopeful of a better tomorrow. It just felt like watching real life on TV because beneath its superb fictional surface the show has a lot to offer. Lois & Clark's journey was more twisted than usual and in fact it's something that we hadn't seen before. Sadly its execution was relatively weak in the direction and edition departments. (Warning : Boss alert) Jeannot Szwarc already did a poor job on Homecoming and he was back with a vengeance. The beginning should puzzle you not necessarily because what happened was unexpected but more because it came out from nowhere. The transition between scenes wasn't as smooth, and definitely not as creative, as Tim Scanlan's work on Masquerade for example. At least he could have followed the lead of more experienced directors like Turi Meyer or Al Septien. A harsh critic but I think an episode that jars with the others is just unacceptable. It's specially true when you consider how Clark was awkwardly handled at times. Of course I wouldn't have done a better job but come on it's the finale season ! Nothing disastrous though, I'm just being picky like an angry ghost.

Now my ink has tainted Szwarc's reputation for all eternity and beyond, the poor thing will probably get fired – or not, it's time to highlight what went right. What better way to finish a 10 years ride than bringing some guests ? Kent's one was obvious, even if I hadn't seen the preview, but nonetheless its role unveiled a whole new side of its personality. There were some writing missteps from Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders, when one character had no reason to monologue or lines felt over the top, but overall they delivered exciting and quite interesting dialogs. They definitely allowed Erica Durance and Tom Welling to put their talent in motion. Their last scene at the farm was heartwarming and filled with references to appeal the fans. (Extra bonus) It leads us to Cassidy Freeman whom sexiness will never stop to arouse the viewer. The woman in the red dress ? Lose it your ugliness ! Say hello to Tess in the violet evening gown. She would even tame the blood thirsty white shark from Jaws ! In fact ladies and gentlemen prepare yours to drop on the floor. Weighted by her vertiginous décolletage it should even break and reach the ground. Floor by floor like a corrosive acid from outer space it will continue its vicious descent toward the very center of the Earth. The only survivor of the apocalypse ? You, and the beauty. All stripped on a lost island and with nothing else to do than repopulating the planet.

Seriously using visual effects to enhance a natural like her is inappropriate. Sorry, last time I promise (Game over). I only wish the budget had allowed them to make action scenes longer and some others more well polished even if the production quality was still good. As for the ending I really appreciated the fact that it wasn't a cliffhanger for once but an open door on the infinite universe of our imagination. How wise ! How inspiring ! Moreover an intriguing gem was also introduced and as a pathetic ignorant of comics I have no idea what's coming, what a blessing, but worshipers of Superman and its mythology should definitely be thrilled !
