Re: New Poster. :)

I wondered why I wasn't seeing you on SHoE this year! I totally understand though. Honestly, I think sometimes people just need to understand that there are many different kinds of fans of this show and that many different perspectives are valid. The biggest problem in Smallville fandom is that many people assume that the reason that THEY watch the show is more important (or better) than the reason that others do. People who watch only for the relationships fail to recognize that many fans out there just aren't as interested as they are and that the relationships can only be PART of the story but can't be the whole story. But on the other side of the coin, fans who watch soley for the action or watch only to see Clark fight villians aren't really being fair when they label the lighter episodes as being a waste of time or "shipperfests." In my opinion, if a scene adds anything to Clark's growth or character then it's worthwhile. But at the end of the day, it's just weird to me that so many people out there assume that their view on the show just HAS to be the right one. All opinions are valid so long as they are presented in a constructive and reasonable manner. (Which obviously excludes senseless bashing or distorting the actual show canon to suit your own agenda---which as you well know, many fans do.) That's actually my biggest pet peeve--when any fan or reviewer makes a general statement without backing it up with the actual show canon or twisting the accuracy of the canon.

You weren't the only one who read the scene in Disciple as sexual. I did too and I don't think you were dead wrong. I don't think he was asking for sex per se. (That would have been a little fast for Clark.) I just kind of thought he was hoping to make out and maybe get to second base or something. LOL. Basically I thought that "I could show you Clark KEnt's tour of the galaxy" was his way of saying, "Come back to the farm and let me feel you up for a little while." LOL. And then he kissed her mid-sentence after that as if to make his point. So don't second guess yourself. I think you were right. He's Clark. It's not like he would have pressured her or anything if she wasn't ready which was why he didn't push it after she said no.

As for the shipper thing...yeah, I don't get that. I'm a fan of Smallville. I love Lois. She is my second favorite person on the show AFTER Clark. But at the end of the day this is Clark's show. Lois is the second most important person in the Superman story....but it's HIS story. I would never miss an episode as long as it had CLARK in it. Most of the Clois fans I know and associate with on the web would never not watch an episode because of lack of Lois. They love Clark too much.

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on Checkmate. My initial reaction to the episode was pretty close to rage due to Clark's low screentime and a few other things that upset me about his scenes in general. But the more I reflected on it the more my opinion changed completely. Now, I feel like I have a totally different opinion on everything Clark related from the episode and I can appreciate the episode in a whole new way.

Great chatting with you. Hope to talk to you again soon. :)
