Clark Kent, episode by episode, Part 10

Tonight we bring Season 5, and all controversy about Clark's looks,  to a close.  Because while season 6 certainly did bring its own unique set of gripes and grumbles, Clark's hotness was rarely disputed.

And off we go...

Vengeance   Saddest SV ever!  Poor Clark needs a hug.  The line forms behind me

Type your cut contents here.

Tomb  I'm digging the slightly raised eyebrow

Cyborg For those that aren't aware, Tom was apparently very sick during the filming of this episode.  Sick enough to actually shut down production for a few days.  And when I was looking through the caps, you can actually tell.  And he has this bleary-eyed look in almost all the caps for the episode.  Poor Tom :(

Hypnotic  I love this devilish grin.

Void  Looking very much like a little boy

Fragile  He looks wonderful in this episode.  Might have had something to do with the director ;)

Mercy  One of my favorite stills from S5

Fade  Loved his look for "dinner".  You'd think he was going on a date ;)

Oracle  Uh-Oh, Clark Mad! Clark Smash!

Vessel  I think of this look as prophetic...he must've known what Season 6 held for him   "A Clexana triangle? No freaking way!!"   LOL

And now there's just season 6 left to go, and then in a short time, we'll have a whole new season of screencaps to enjoy.

i like that arched eyebrow in the Tomb photo, too. it's a good look on him!

I'm very fond of that cap as well. Its not an expression we see on him a lot.

I love my Clark, but he does occasionally go into Temper Tantrum mode. :P

Aw, the Vengeance cap! It makes me so sad. *pouts*

That Tomb cap is very sexy. I love the raised eyebrow, too.

Oh, dear. I can definitely see what you mean about Cyborg. He definitely looks ill. Poor Tom. :(

I love these pic scams so much!

He just breaks my heart at the end of Vengeance. Such a well done sequence. TW, AOT, and the direction are all first rate.

And for real, I was going through the Cyborg caps, and the poor baby looks really unwell. His eyes are bleary, he's pale (even with makeup). He just looks like he feels like crap. *pets Tom*

Eee I loved Fade and Fragile. And the end of Vengeance with Clark sobbing on his mom's shoulder at the home videos actually got me teary about Bo's death. TW is too good at making Superman look vulnerable.
Aug. 15th, 2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
Yes, he most defintely is. I really do believe its one of the shows main strengths.
Aug. 15th, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC)
It really is. I wouldn't have been able to stand an insensitive or insincere looking Superman and TW knew how to convincingly play the earnest innocence right from the beginning. Having puppy dog eyes the size of saucers also doesn't hurt. *g*

Oh and I forgot to say about Fade/the date look...that episode read exactly like Clark was--after finding out about Lex moving on (because he went over thinking Lex wanted "common ground"!)-- trying to move on with his new, well dressed rich suitor. His outfit even looked like the one he wore in Rogue, and the guy who's life he saved was trying to shower him with gifts and set him up with a girl as a show of gratitude. They didn't have to make the fotw/new friend so Lex-like. Iirc this is when Clark, after a while of being zen about breaking up with Lana, started caring about it all again.

I love your icon. I rank 'Nemesis' as one of the best of the series, and it was amongst the eps I truly enjoyed from season 6.

And I agree wrt TW's expressiveness. I've actually always maintained that TW was a fine, capable actor, right from the very start of the show, indeed because of his ability to convey so effectively that innate sense of believable naivate. It isn't a small feat, IMO.
Aug. 15th, 2007 06:18 pm (UTC)
OMG, that reading of Fade is fascinating. And I couldn't help noticing how touchy-feely that guest actor was. He was totally all up in Clark's personal space.

*happy sigh* I love that picture with the raised eyebrow. He has the most expressive face, really. Thanks for posting these. :-)
Aug. 15th, 2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
As always, you're welcome. :)

Isn't that raised eyebrow pic fun? I saw that, and went "Oh yeah, that goes in the spam".
Aug. 15th, 2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
I'm loving the bewildered look from 'Vessel.'
Aug. 15th, 2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
I think I had the same expression thoughout much of S6.
Aug. 16th, 2007 06:50 pm (UTC)
That Vengeance scene broke my heart. Tom and AOT played it so well, specially Tom. The way he reacted when he heard his dad's voice, his expression... I always cry when I see that scene. *Hugs Clark*

I agree that he looked wonderful in "Fragile". I watched that ep again recently and Tom did an amazing job directing it too.

You could tell that he was sick in "Cyborg". They had to shut down production for four days, which means he was really unwell. The director said they had been lucky to have a star that hadn't been that sick before, in spite of working terribly hard for so many seasons. Oh, Tommy!

Thanks for the beautiful caps!

That last scene in Vengeance is one of those rare times when I believe that this show got it 100% completely right. The way it was filmed, the performances, the music, and the fact that there is no dialogue at all between Clark and Martha. It is literally a perfect scene to me, and it breaks my heart whenever I see it.

I remember watching Fragile with my Mom, who only watches the show occasionally. I told her that he directed that episode, and she said "I'm not surprised, he hasn't shot himself at one bad angle the whole episode". Heh!
Aug. 16th, 2007 09:21 pm (UTC)
the thing that tells me how sick Tom was in cyborg, was hopw red his eyes were. You knew he must have been feeling like hell.
Aug. 16th, 2007 09:24 pm (UTC)
And i forgot to say this but you know that screen cap from hypnotic? is it just me or does he look like a kitten?. Have i mentioned, that i think kittens are the best animals, when it comes to getting us to do what they want while maintaining their innocent "who me?" look?. And i can't resist them? At all?
Aug. 17th, 2007 12:51 am (UTC)
He does look a little feline-esqe in that Hypnotic cap. I didn't see it before, but now that you mention it...

And yeah, the Cyborg caps just made me feel bad for him. He just looks ill. Poor baby, I need to pet him *pets Tom*

Moody blue lighting, that's the way to go with Clark. It just looks so damn good on him, don't you think?
Aug. 22nd, 2007 01:02 am (UTC)
Oh, absolutely. I'm always fascinated by how different lighting highlights him in such unique ways.

For myself though, I think I'm most partial to natural, outdoor lighting on him. He just looks like fresh air, and happiness in the sunshine.

I'm amazed you're able to find as many caps without THRJ as you do, this far into the series! :)

That Tomb shot is very cool! And hot! LOL! I also love the cap from Fade. Show me Clark in a dress shirt and coat and I'm gone. So pretty.

Okay, I'll stop spamming for tonight, because it's already past my bedtime. :) I hope you know I don't mean to bug you with all these comments, I just want you to know how much I appreciate all the time and effort you put into these picspams, and how much I'm enjoying them. Thanks so much!
Dec. 3rd, 2007 03:02 pm (UTC)
Oh, please don't apolgize. I love that you found these picspams, and enjoy them so much. Thats what I do them for. I've been able to take my own walk down memory lane when reading your comments. Its very cool :)
