Descent - I like this episode a lot.  I thought the Clex was powerful, even though they only speak to each other in 1 of the 3 scenes.  I don't like all the dialogue, but I thought the Clex connection came through.  And that scene after Lex identifies Lionel's body, and Clark is shadowing him behind the police barrier, and they share that look...Awesome stuff!

Sleeper - Utter Crap!  But the review I wrote for it amuses me.

Apocalypse - A lot I like, a lot I don't like.  Tom's direction is top notch, the Clois and Clara scenes are quite good and its always great to see James Marsters again.  But this one really needed 2 hours to completely work.

I think Clark is actually saying in this scene "Why do I have to be in this piece-of-shit episode?"

Nicely framed shot Mr Director

This made me laugh. :-) Nice pictures!

Thank you. Come on, you know Tom was thinking it.

*spits out water*...SLEEPER...the title says it all doesn't it? DESCENT....for years we saw Lex walking in the grey areas and dueling with his father and to see him actually descend into true evil...MR did a fantastic job and the CLEX scenes with TW just giving him "I know what you did look" were powerful. I am just disappointed that SV kept taking CLEX into the CLEXANA territory. I always found their story more powerful when their confrontations were not about her...but each other or Lionel.

APOC...great direction and a nice nod to the future but the story was rushed trying to pack it into one episode. It must have been a challenge for Tom. Nice choices again Valerie.

Sleeper is just....I mean, WHAT THE HELL was someone thinking? Not only is it a stupid premise, but the little bit of Clark we get in the episode is written horribly. I don't think I've ever forgiven Caroline Dries for it.

I'm not sure why Clex had to become about Lana. I can only guess that they wanted Lana to have the same sort of epic importance, so they placed her chararacter in a position she should never have been in. Of course, the downside to that is what it did to Clark, Lex and Clex :(

Nice shots!

Though I don't think Clark was a piece of shit it was the WRITING LOL

No, I didn't say Clark was a piece of shit. I said he was asking why he had to BE IN this piece-of-shit episode. I think Clark was totally a victim of bad writing there.

I have a lot of love for both Descent and Apocalypse, but Sleeper was such an unqualified disaster. The best thing IMO about the departure of AA is no more Jimmy-centric episodes - none of them worked for me with only Noir coming close.

I think the problem with Jimmy-centric eps was that they didn't focus his storyline in the right place. I'll never understand why his primary purpose was to be Chloe's love interest.

Lex was never my favorite character, but I think the Clark/Lex dynamic just added so much to the show overall. And I just think his presence was an important balance to Clark. I'd certainly welcome him back with open arms. I don't know why these dumbasses don't make an offer to MR that allows him to have hair. I doubt people would really care for more then a minute.

From "Apocalypse" I really like the Clex shot where their faces are merging, indicating their linked identities. Very clever, Mr. Welling!

Oh nice! He really did a great directing job on that one, and I imagine it was a pretty complicated episode too.
