Quick comment on Hex


OK, so I'm a big enough person to admit when I'm wrong.

I was totally convinced that Hex would completely suck.  And it didn't.  At all.  I'm still not a huge fan of the concept, but I think the execution was mostly handled very well.   And I loved the character development.

And Tom Welling is fucking funny!  He needs to do a romantic comedy.

I enjoyed Hex too! I definitely need to re-watch it. And I can't wait for screencaps.

I felt like Tom was totally channeling Christopher Reeve's version of CK, but with his own spin to it.

I'm glad that Tom got to be light-hearted and funny and sarcastic. He's so good at it!!! I agree that he desperately needs to be in some sort of comedy- preferably a romantic comedy. :-)

Tom really seemed to be relaxed and having fun with this episode. If he was actually sick during this episode (which has yet to be proven as fact), I certainly couldn't tell!

I also think that Erica did a reallly good job as Chloe.

Too bad next week is going to be all serious and angsty...

BRI!!! Where ya been?

I'm really surprised at how much this episode DIDN'T suck. I was really wrong about it.

And Tom is just the most adorableist in the world. *squishes him*

Tom Welling kills me. LOL.

And the episode was way cooler than I expected, as well.

I think Tom Welling is so amazing, and I think it would be such a tragedy if he doesn't go on to a big career post-SV.

Yeah, totally way cooler. I'm still in shock.

TOM WELLING was absolutely amazing! You are right he was soo funny...I loved his expressions so much in some scenes!

He just cracked me up. Laugh out loud funny. And he's really understated about it. I remember James Marshall saying what awesome comic timing he has back on the S3 DVD commentaries. Its nice to see that put to good use on the show.

Tom kicks comedic ass!! I loved Hex and am mostly gushing over the funny on my LJ post...I need a comedic Tom icon now. *starts scanning for screencaps*

You should definitely get one of him giving that bewildered, amazed look when he realized how good the acoustics were at the top of the DP. LMAO!!

He's adorable.

I'm glad you liked it because I was dying laughing and I couldn't wait till iTunes had up for download. Are you gonna do a longer review when you do the screentime totals, because I'd love to hear your "deeper" thoughts about the episode?

Yes, absolutely! I have a lot to say about this episode. There's also a lot of dialogue I feel like I missed the first time, so I need to pay more attention there.

Oh, man, I know!!! I was braced for the worst, but this episode was fantastic!

"That would've really hurt!"

Hee!

I'm really shocked. Even in the beginning of the episode, I was still, like, "Uh-oh", but then it all came together really nicely. And Tom got to be so funny!

Go figure!

Hex Reviews.....
Hey I loved it to. It didn't suck and for once they didn't turn Zantanna into a fan girl. The downside to this to episode was that alot of the Chloe/Clark fan girls bitched about how ooc Clark was for being objective about Chimmey breakup( which I don't think he was, he didn't call on her birthday blah blah.. and how Chloe pimped the Clois...they were dissappointed. I thought it was a good episode. I loved Clark and Lois, Chloe...meh.

Re: Hex Reviews.....
Zantanna was written pretty strongly.

No SV episode is going to please all fangroups. Its just not possible. But I personally felt like this episode respected all the characters, and I think thats what is most important. Or should be.

Re: Hex Reviews.....
I agree. that was a typo, I mean't to say meter mutant and true you can't please everybody, though I really enjoyed the episode. it reminded me why I liked Chloe in the first place, and I really loved Clark/Lois and TW's performance had shades of Dean Caines "Clark Kent" from Lois and Clark.

I was laughing so much during this episode!
The rooftop scene alone was enough to get me to love this episode, but the whole thing was enjoyable and fun. :D

And I agree so much with you, Tom would be brilliant in a romantic comedy.

Its fun to laugh with SV, isn't it? They don't do humor often, and when they do do it, its not always done well. But this time it worked.

I think Tom could be brilliant in so much. I think its all up to him wanting it.

Finally something more light and funny! All this dark stuff is not for me. I trust that Hex would have been even better if Tom had directed it.

I am also very happy about the fact that, on the various basher boards, we finally see some Clark/Tom appreciation again thanks to this episode.

Looking forward to your deep thoughts, including, hopefully, some serious gushing. ;))

Tom just seemed so comfortable, and light-hearted in this episode. He was sparkly! LOL

Tom never gets all the respect he deserves. But we know he's awesome!

Yes! Thats it!! His timing is so damned good. Thats exactly what James Marshall said on the Truth commentary. Tom has great timing.

I'm still in shock that this episode was so not what I was expecting.

Same as you, I didn't have very high expectations but the episode ROCKED!

TW and ED together totally stole the show! :))

I thought this episode was going to so unnecessary fluff, and just an excuse to incite fandom. But it SO was hot that at all. I thought the character movement was really impressive. Who would've thunk it? SV, you constantly surprise us!

I need to see Tom do comedy more often. The rooftop scene about killed me ... it was SO HILARIOUS!

Tom doing comedy is Gold! Just Gold! He gets it so right. Its too bad he doesn't have more of a chance to stretch that particular acting muscle.

It is a great feeling when you have high hopes for an episode, and it lives up to them. And its a good feeling when you had NO hopes for an episode, and it shocks you in a good way.

This episode contained so much that I wasn't expecting, and I thought it was handled really well. And all I can say is, thank God Caroline Dries didn't write it.

And yes, movie deals for Tom, and Erica, and for all of the SV cast. I think they all deserve them.

Wasn't he?! I agree they need to get him on a comedy like yesterday.

I'll take him in anything, quite frankly. But now I really want a comedy for him.

And yes, what a pleasant surprise this ep turned out to be!
