Did You Know?


When Clark and Lois are discussing Lois's answer to "Do you love him", she says she slipped the sensor off her finger while the jeweler wasn't looking, thus leading to her lie not registering. Just before Clark saves her from the chair however, you can see the sensor on her right hand, meaning she was lying about the fact she slipped the sensor off. See more »

27 April 2011 | by ColcatronSee all my reviews

The plot in "Committed" is about as far fetched and tacky as it gets in Smallville. Some of the dialogue is extremely corny. The actor who plays the villain of the week comes across as completely lifeless and bland at times, and then goes really over the top at other times. He also never really sells the motivation for his character's actions. Despite these points, I can completely forgive the negatives thanks to the overall execution of this episode. The dialogue between Clark and Lois is absolutely hysterical at times, and made even better by the delivery from Welling and Durance. Chloe and Jimmy's section of the story is more dramatic, but it helps to finally put the annoying jealousy behind their characters. We also get to see some interesting scenes between Oliver and Tess, which thankfully gives Tess something more to do than be the female clone of Lex. While the plot would seem on the surface to be quite dark, this is actually one of the few really entertaining episodes in season 8, thanks in part to the show taking a break from the weak Doomsday story.
