Re: New Poster. :)

That's exactly the kind of illogic that makes the scenes seem forced, not sexy.

I have to agree. You can hardly get lost in the moment when your brain is sending up red flags about how nonsensical it all is. Then all those elements that are supposed to enhance the mood only detract from it, and take you right out of the scene.

The little moment where Lois watches Clark make the bed? That was sexy and felt "real".

I loved that, his careful attention to every detail, and her tender regard as she took it all in. Watching Clark through her eyes made me fall in love with him all over again. Which only brings me back to how crazy it was that she didn't jump him the second they got back to their room. Any conversation about Chloe and Oliver could have waited until they were basking in the afterglow. ;)

I've definitely seen sparks between Lois & Clark, but for me it's usually in the episodes where they're working together, not in the comedy eps, which always seem to try way too hard and don't let the chemistry just happen.

While I have loved the funny scenes between Clark and Lois this season (the Crossfire morning show, Clark going through Lois's closet in Warrior), I don't see them as romantic so much as just hilarious. :) I will admit that I completely swoon over the scenes where Clark is direct and assertive in expressing his feelings for Lois (the farmhouse scene in Rabid, asking Lois about their relationship at the end of Pandora, the Conspiracy "hello"). Tom personifies SEXY in those! But for mutual chemistry, I prefer scenes where Clark and Lois are working on a story, and the current that runs between them is humming along under the surface, to ones where they're on a date, or being overtly flirty and romantic. Actually, what comes to mind first for me are S8 episodes, rather than S9 ones. But I liked the little scene in Persuasion where Clark boosted Lois up to spy on the RAO towers, for example, the way they worked together to investigate the zombie story in Rabid, and their field trip to look into the Fake!Blur in Idol.

I love the way Bryan Q. Miller writes both Clark and Lois. He, of anyone on the staff, gets Clark, and just as importantly, the superhero he will one day be.
