Wasn't this just the most unexpectedly fun surprise of an ep?! I really ended up loving this. The cast was in fine form, tons of character development, some wonderful handling of Clois, lovely Chlark scenes, an effective guest star and an Oliver that wasn't IMO completely written all over the place as he has been these past few eps.

Your review was a great read, as always. And thankyou for the pics because they are an amazing way to cap it all off. I'm especially loving the one where Chloe is coming at him to plonk him on the head and our mild mannered reporter is all looking up in wonderment, in all his beautiful clulessness. Heh.

You summed it up perfectly. I think this episode is destined to become one of my favorites, for Tom's performance alone if nothing else. I'm glad you liked the pics. I love adding that part of my review, and Home of the Nutty has been wonderful about posting the caps quickly after the episode airs. That pic you mention is my favorite as well. It totally captures the comedy of that scene.

I was pleasantly surprised by this episode. I didn’t expect to enjoy it quite as much as I did. I knew nothing of Zatanna before this episode,other than the obvious, and so I was pleased to note that I never felt like I was missing anything.

"Chloe has been a reporter since day one on this show. In fact, as we saw in Progeny, she has been one pretty much forever. And reporting for her has always been equal parts writing and investigating."

While I don't mind Chloe being in the "Watchtower" role, for her to just up a say journalism is for someone else and not her, is just not right. She's wanted to be a reporter since freaking 8, we saw this! We've seen this since season 1 and for the writers to have her say, it's not me. That ain't right. Chloe will always be a reporter. Always. I don't care how many lightswitches are flipped or anvils are dropped. Chloe Sullivan = REPORTER. You can't erase 5+ years of development no matter how bad you want to, PS3.

I, too, enjoyed this episode more than I expected to. It was much more fun than I thought it would be.

I hear what you're saying about Chloe. I guess the reason it works for me is that Chloe has been through so much that could be life-changing, from acquiring a meteor power to being possessed by Brainiac. But I can understand why you would remain unconvinced as well.
