Short Turbulence Comment

I will post my full review later,  when I have the screentime totals.  But for the first time, in a long time, I can't wait to write it up.

For right now, after last night, the Clark scenes, and the Cless scenes, restored my SV SQUEEEEE!! 

I feel another Cless picspam coming up.

Yay! This post, because it wasn't cut so I didn't skip, has now made me look forward to watching this episode off my DVR when I get home.

Thanks. Good to know there might be something good about the epsiode. <3

I hope I don't steer you wrong.

I will just say, as a Clark fan, who is about him first and foremost...I was happy with his part in this episode.

The only downside? Not enough of him.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Every scene with Clark in it was gold, and the Clark-Tess storyline was fabulous. I've been waiting for TW and CF to get extended screentime together, and this was worth the wait!

Yes! Why wasn't this episode 30m+ of Clark/Tess, and a lot less of the other stuff which bored and aggravated me?

If only I hadn't got to go through those endless Chloe/Davis/Jimmy scenes. The ending to their scenes lingered so much I had to scream!

Tom looked so gorgeous; OMG!!

I know, the other side of this episode felt endless. Ugh!

But the Clark stuff? Gold!

They totally were!! I hoped they would be good, but I think they were even better then I expected. So, SQUEEE!

Cless is like the new Clex. They have the same dynamic. I love it!
jeannev
Mar. 20th, 2009 06:58 pm (UTC)
And that adds to its appeal. Because it feels like a 3-some to me, with Lex being a constant presence. Thats sort of hot!

I can't believe how awesome Clark and Tess are together. I haven't seen that kind of chemistry in AGES!

I could see the sparks between them, but this episode was going to be the test. To see if the 2 of them could carry that chem through a whole plotline. And the answer is a resounding Hell Yeah!

HOW MUCH DID TESS ROCK LAST NIGHT?

Still not a shipper, but I'm liking the Cless dynamic as it is.

She rocked muchly!

I can't really ship anything on SV itself. But in my imagination, in my SV that takes place in my imagination, they are a smoking hot duo having a dysfunctional affair, with lots of sex. :P

There will definitely be one, hopefully this weekend. I just have to...

It is a quiet, simmering chemistry, and its bad and wrong, which adds to its hotness.

I feel like I haven't commented you in foreverrrrr.

I'm so glad that your squee is restored! I'd been worried for a while that your enthusiasm had been permanently squashed ever since The Arc That Shall Not Be Named.

Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the episode as a whole, and I'm really kind of surprised that a lot of my flist did. If we could've gotten 90% Cless, 7% Shelby, and 3% Chlavisimmy, then maybe. As it stands, this episode just irks me. I know this was *supposed* to be Tom's preparatory episode for Hex, but I thought that since it wasn't meant to be, they would've tried to give him and Tess a *little* more screentime.

But seriously, SO happy that you're happy with the show again. :)

I know! I figured you didn't like me anymore ;)

My SQUEEE is in place right now. I make no promises on it remaining in place.

And believe me, I am also irked that the Cless stuff played 2nd fiddle to the Chlavisimmy crap. But I had prepared myself for that. I'm trying not to dwell on it too much. The heavy emphasis on Chloe this season just reminds me so much of the way this show used to showcase Lana. I didn't like it much then either.

Your comment to Duskwillow about it feeling like a threesome (with Lex between them-ooohh) , was pure gold, Because that's exactly what it felt like. If we can't have Clex we can have it's little sister
:D

Its kind of a much sexier, hotter Clexana in a way. Clark was always the 3rd party in the Lexana, and Lex is always the 3rd party in Cless.

I totally want someone to write a fic of Cless having sex while Lex watches from a secret camera. Or, ya know, something like that...

WHEEEE! I'm so glad you liked it! It was AWESOME! I couldn't stop thinking about the episode all day. I finally gave up, came home early from work, and now I'm going to watch it again and write my review. Love Tom, love Cassidy, LOVE THIS SHOW.

Its so much fun to have my SQUEEEE back, at least for this moment. Clark was so, so amazing, and Tom was crazy stunning. And the chem between Tom and Cassiday? Crazy Hot!

Yay!!!! You know, after I watched this, one of my first thoughts was that I really hope this helps Jeannev get her squeee back: I had a feeling it might. I certainly thought it was an "A" episode, despite all the Jimmy. Because for once, they used Jimmy to advance a major plot line that was ultimately all about Clark. Sure, I didn't like Chloe all that much this episode, but that kinda made me happy. Even your best friends can sometimes do stupid things that make you mad.

Aww, thanks! I just want to hug all my flisties that were worried about my SV Squeee! Thanks for looking out for me.

Funny thing is, I actually found Jimmy really interesting in this episode. And more sympathetic then Davis, certainly, and even Chloe.

The Cless was....satisfying. The other stuff? Not so much.

But there's nothing like a great Clark ep to get my SQUEEE squeeing again.

"Turbulence" made me realize how often Clark gets portrayed as "less than" his leading ladies - less smart than Chloe, less determined than Lois, less the "shiny centre of the universe" than Lana.

What's cool about the relationship with Tess is, Clark's not apologizing to her, he doesn't feel any guilt towards her; the playing field is level and it allows Tom to play Clark as smart, flirty and a little sneaky. He also gets to play Clark as a grown-up, which I love, and it's great to see Tess recognizing how gorgeous he is!

And, as you say, Lex is the invisible third in this threesome, which makes it very sexy!

You know, thats such an excellent point, about how Clark is written in relation to his leading ladies.

One of the original things that sparked my interest in the Cless is that Tom has always played it equal parts cautious, cordial and flattered, and Cassiday plays it with her interest right on her sleeve. The vibe just works.

And I love all the parallel's to Lex. Now this is a way to bring Lex into the story that works.

Damn, I need a Lex/Clark/Tess icon now.
