2009 Smallville Calendar
I received my 2009 Smallville calendar in the mail yesterday, and I scanned the back cover just in case anyone wants to see what the 12 monthly pics are before they decide whether or not to order it.

The calendar is bigger than my scanner, so I had to scan it in two parts, which is also why the image is a little blurry in spots (I couldn't get it to lie flat). It's not the greatest image, but at least you can see what the pic for each month is. :)

I'm disappointed they used the S6 promo shots yet again, but I'm always happy to be able to have the pretty on my wall for another 12 months! BTW, the pic of Clark in the leather jacket is also the cover image. The cover they show on Amazon is not accurate.

Lex is posing so prettily in the second photo. :p

(I must've been living under a rock, I've never seen that particular shot before.)

That really is a great shot. His mouth shows just the slightest hint of a smirk, and the look in his eye is half mischievous and half deadly. :)

Thank you so much for posting that!!! I just got an email from Amazon that my calendar (which I ordered forever ago) is due to arrive in the next two weeks or so, but thanks to you, I don't have to wonder what it's going to look like. :-)
I'm disappointed that there's no new pictures, but I'm still crossing my fingers for new season 8 promo pics.

Mine came from Amazon, too, so maybe yours will arrive sooner than you think! I ordered it back in March.

I'm hoping for new promo pics for S8, too. It seems like a given with all the changes, but with this show, who knows?

Thanks for posting this. Now I know for sure I won't bother buying it.
At least Clark is on September, my Birth month.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Unfortunately, Jimmy Olsen is actually on September. The pics are shown in order going left to right in horizontal rows, so Clark is on January and November. Even more reason for you to pass, I'm afraid. :)

I wish there were an all-Clark version. Or even better, and all-Tom calendar, although we both know our Tom would never do something like that.

Haha! I love the second photo of Lex, he looks so naughty! What does it say in the upper right corner?

And I wonder why they never did new promo shots after S6.

And my last thought is, it's a good thing they didn't leave Lex out!

He looks even naughtier up close! :) Michael has the greatest expression on his face. The caption reads, "Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) finally shows his true colors!" The other Lex pic has an equally cheesy caption: "Lex Luthor is surely up to no good..." I would vastly prefer the pics without words. The captions are completely inane.

Everyone looks so pretty.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 2nd, 2008 07:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
They really do. No matter what one thinks of the characters or the actors, one can't deny their beauty. :) It's the one area in which Smallville is completely consistent! And Tom is the prettiest one of all. *nods*

Funny, I was just thinking about this yesterday and debating whether to get another Smallville calendar for next year or something else

At least there is still Lex, but I suspect it will be the last year for him :( And there should definitely me more Clark and more Lois, and less Lana
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 2nd, 2008 08:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
The calendars really don't keep up with the show, do they? But I'm actually thankful for that, because a calendar without Lex would just make me sad.

Wasn't your Smallville calendar last year the P.L. Nunn Clex one? That's a whole different level of pretty!
From: super_robyn Date: August 2nd, 2008 08:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hmm, that's strange. Some of those pics are repeats from the 2008 one, right? Like the first Tom one is just at a slightly different angle than the December 08. And the GA one is just slightly different, but from the same photo shoot.

I like how they mixed up Chloe, Jimmy, and Kara's ones, but the others feel very 2008 to me.

LOL I am so damn picky when it comes to this, so it seems.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 2nd, 2008 09:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't think you're picky at all. I think they're lazy! If they're not going to make new promo shots, then I'd rather have episode stills or even screen caps than pics that feel recycled. I do love that pic of Clark in the leather jacket, but I'd rather see something new.

Thanks so much for this! Just 2 pics of Clark? *sigh* I'll think about it.
Can I repost with credit?
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 3rd, 2008 01:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, sure, post away! I know how frustrated I was that I couldn't see what I was getting ahead of time, so I'm happy to share. :) If you're snagging it, be aware that it's actually two separate pics (the top half and the bottom half).

Excuse me, but why don't Lex or Oliver have their shirts off?
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 4th, 2008 02:41 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL! Oh, Whimsy, welcome back!! I've missed you so! OMG, that made me laugh so hard. :D

We have heard that there's a desert island plot in Ollie's future, so I think major shirtlessness may be in the offing for that.
silverscreengal From: silverscreengal Date: August 3rd, 2008 04:15 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thanks for sharing those.

I wish they'd put a little more effort into the calendars to give us fresh stuff. I guess it doesn't make economic sense. *sigh*

Everyone is so pretty on that show. Kudos to Glen Winter, Barry Donlevy and the rest of the DoP.

Maybe we're lucky we even still get a calendar, but I wish we could see some new pics, too. I would have liked to see more pics of Clark with someone else, so that he would be in more pics altogether. For instance, instead of two pics of Chloe alone, do one of just Chloe, and one of Chloe with Clark. But that's my personal bias, of course. :)

It would have been nice to get new pics....but Tommy smirking in black and Michael petting his own thigh while flirting with the camera is somewhat compensatory.

Thanks for posting these!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 4th, 2008 02:48 am (UTC) (Link)
That really is a great pic of Michael, isn't it? Maybe it's one you already have, but if not, here's a close-up scan of his face. Flirting with the camera is right!

I'm hijacking this post to say:

Season 4, Episode 20 - CLARK BEING ALL MATERNAL!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
When Lana hands him the baby it's a definite "Awwwww" moment. *g*
EDIT: Baby grew up fast and became little Sammy Winchester!

Anyway, that's all I wanted to say. I'm only 6 minutes into that episode so I better get back to watching it.

Oh, there wass one more thing:
Dr. Quinn as Jensen's mom = Brilliant casting.

Nice calendar too. :)

That episode made ovaries explode across the land! :) Just look at our boy:



You recognized Wee!Sam! Another of those many Vancouver crossovers! :) I keep meaning to do a picspam of the actors that Supernatural and Smallville have in common. And I agree that Jane Seymour was awesome. I was surprised at how deliciously she played evil. I especially enjoyed her scenes with Lex and Lionel.

ooh! I haven't ordered mine yet. Although I'm not loving this one as much as I loved mine a few years ago. I think 2006 was the best year. And I could totally do without the Jimmy shot. But Clark and Lex are lovely.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 5th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I'm not over the moon about this one, but I'm just glad they're still making one at all. We get so little in the way of Smallville merchandise, I'm pretty thankful for it all! :)
