Smallville: Webclip for Hostage
Okay, I'm not sure how I feel about Martha and Perry dating, or Martha being the Red Queen, but I'm a sucker for the iconic stuff. Perry White and Lois Lane working on a story together? Wheeee! Plus Michael McKean is just SO GOOD! I can't wait for Hostage!

I love how his whole body language changes when she shows him the drawing of Book of Rao. Can't wait to see them working together.
Though with them investigating Clark and Martha, I think their story doesn't have much chance to see the light of day and get published. :(

Also, lmao @ "goth guy"!

I love the part when they get down to business, reporter to reporter! *bounces*

Yeah, something tells me this story will get squashed. Unless Clark decides now is the time to go public?

"on a trampoline"! hee!

Long live Perry White!!!

Yeah, that is pretty darn cute. Michael McKean is funny.

So random...

Ever since I learned that Perry would be back on the show working with Lois I have not been able to get that hilarious scene out of my head from the Season 1 episode "Fly Hard" of "Lois and Clark." There's that great scene where Clark, Lois, Perry and Lex are all taken hostage by the terrorists in the conference room. Lois decides that she has a plan and says, "Sit down Chief, you're having a heart attack." And so Lois starts banging on the walls yelling that Perry is having a heart attack. The terrorist comes in and shoots a round of bullets around Perry's feet and all of a sudden Perry stops faking the heart attack.
The Villian of the episode tells Lois that he's done having his patience tested...does she understand? Lois starts to talk back to him (in typical Lois fashion) and Clark pulls her back and says, "She understands." LOL Then of course Lois gives him the death glare for trying to pull her back. (Very similar to the the arm that he put in front of her in "Charade" so she couldn't go after Franklin Stern.)

But then Perry has that hilarious moment where he goes:
"Lois....I swear if you ever pull a stunt like that again you'll be writing recipes for the food section!!!!"

Rest in Peace Lane Smith. God, he was so funny.

I watched this scene this morning when the clip was released and I just couldn't get all these classic Perry/Lois moments out of my head.

I also have that amazing comic scene from Superman:Birthright in my head where Lois is talking Perry's ear off and Perry is sitting there looking completely frazzled making a list. On one side of the list it is talking about all the reasons he should keep her at the DP...and the other side is listing all the reasons he should fire her. The "Keep her" side basically compliments her skills as a reporter and her take no prisoners attitude. The "Fire her" side is much longer and generally lists what a pain in the ass she is. I love it.

I am so pumped for this!!

I assume that Clark will call Perry, "Mr. White" as opposed to "Perry." He's usually more formal with him like that.

Re: Long live Perry White!!!

I watched all four seasons of LnC straight through last summer, and I think it's about time for me to gear up for that again. :) Such a fun show! It cracks me up that Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia, and Jim Michaels all produce Supernatural together now.

Is this the panel you're talking about? It's one of my favorites.

Re: Long live Perry White!!!

Yes, this is what I was talking about. :) You are amazing for posting that on here. It makes me laugh so hard.

I just want to squish Clark, Lois, Perry and Martha into a huge hug right now.

I've been rewatching all my favorite Martha moments over the last few weeks as well. The scenes between Martha and Clark in the early seasons really get to me. The last scene in Memoria is probably, to this day, is a scene that I cannot watch without tears. Same goes for the last scene of "Vengeance." The scene in "Solitude" where they embrace in the barn also gets to me. Along with Clark's desperately sad phone call at the start of "Exile" where Martha says, "Come home" and Clark cries. OK....starting to well up now. Ahem....I'll just pull myself together here.

Then I think about some of the great Martha/Lois moments. Martha telling Lois that she'll find "her Jonathan."

Could I BE more emotional for this episode????

MJ :)

Re: Long live Perry White!!!

That's funny, I did a post asking for people to tell me their favorite Martha scenes right after AOT's return was announced, and a lot of the scenes you listed popped up in the comments. I miss Martha so much.

I'm trying not to have too many expectations for this episode. It's only 42 minutes, and I know they can't possibly do everything I'd like to see. :) But still, I'm very excited!

Re: Long live Perry White!!!

He really was awesome.

My LnC DVDs are part of my comfort collection: I watch them when I'm feeling down, and they always make me feel better. :)

Re: Long live Perry White!!!

Exactly! I adore all the relationships, especially Lois and Clark, Clark and his parents, and Lois and Perry. The show always makes me laugh, and I can really relate to TH's Lois.

Perry! *loves him so much*

I don't care how crazy the circumstances are, I'm just thrilled to have him back!

Only 4 more days until Friday!

I know! \o/

Did you see that Justified got a second season? Yay!

Bonnie Hunt posted a clip of Timothy Olyphant on her show!

Perry & Lois = Awesome! :)

I soooo can't wait for Friday to roll 'round, even though it means I have to wait all Saturday morning to download the episode; sometimes living in the UK sucks!.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 4th, 2010 10:53 am (UTC) (Link)
I love them together!

And I've always felt sorry for myself because I live on the west coast and have to wait three hours longer than the east coasters. That will teach me to count my blessings! :)

I made the mistake of getting myself pumped for Hostage by rewatching Perry.

It was a mistake because I forgot how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE that episode and it made me even more anxious for Friday. This webclip isn't helping matters, either.

I rewatchied "Perry" the day that Ausiello released the news that he was coming back. I usually watch old episodes of Smallville while I run on my treadmill and I just couldn't wait to watch that one. I couldn't believe how emotional I got in that last scene where Clark takes him to catch the bus with "Walking in Memphis" playing in the background. Just...AHHH. So good.

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 5th, 2010 12:45 am (UTC) (Link)
That is my favorite scene of the episode. It gives me chills just to think about it! Everything was so perfect: Clark standing so tall and beautiful, looking so much like Superman, the sunlight, the music, that glorious crane shot at the end, and most of all, the dialogue. So much love for that scene!
theclexfactor From: theclexfactor Date: May 5th, 2010 11:59 am (UTC) (Link)
Isn't it a great episode? And even though I don't actively ship them anymore, I still submit "Perry" as evidence of Lex's feelings for Clark, lol

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 5th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC) (Link)
I know what you mean. It's hard for me to remember that Perry has only appeared in one episode, because that episode had such a lasting impact on me.

I'm trying not to have too many expectations for Hostage, and just be glad for whatever we get of these two amazing actors and the awesome characters they play.
