Guh. I just -- he's not human. I may just paddle around in the shallow end of the pool for now.

I think Cat will probably work, considering Erica's Lois is the babe in this version of Superman, but I'm more of a fan of Tracey's slinky version too. One of the worst things they did was re-cast Jimmy and get rid of Cat for S2.

That first one is to die for. I can't wait to see it in HQ.

Smallville's Lois will eat this Cat alive, don't you think? :) I never understood why they got rid of Cat and the first Jimmy on LnC. I thought they were both great. The new Jimmy did eventually win me over. For the record, though, I thought AA was better than both of them. *still misses Jimmy*

That and everything to do with the gray tee. I concur with silverscreengal and bananabehr on this subject.

Oh, she will. Lois is a hurricane of personality. The first Jimmy apparently looked too much like Dean but I dunno why Cat was dropped. She was so much fun.

Oh, Aaron. He is always going to be my Jimmy. I think I'm one of the few people who actually liked Chimmy when they weren't being jealous/dysfunctional at each other.

I still remember the first time we saw the gray tee, in Identity. It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. ;)

Aaron was perfect as Jimmy, when they let him actually BE the iconic Jimmy, like in Apocalypse, Prey, and Identity, for example. It still breaks my heart that they gave him one of his best scenes ever in Doomsday (when he rescues Clark), and then took him from us.

It's no secret that I was never a fan of the Chimmy, but they did have their moments, the times when I absolutely believed they were in love. I actually rooted for them in Bride. I just didn't like it when they made Jimmy jealous and insecure, and Chloe condescending and patronizing.

Is it just me or does Tom's chest seem to continue to get bigger? Is this an optical illusion or something or is he reallly just. that. big.::gulp::

I'm starting to think the most ridiculous thing on this show is that I'm supposed to believe that Lois wouldn't be begging him to make love to her every second of the day.

I agree that Aaron Ashmore--when he was allowed to truly play the iconic Jimmy Olsen--was the best Jimmy Olsen ever.

Justin Whalin did grow on me and I thought he did a great job on LnC.

Supposedly Michael Landes' departure on LnC also had to do with his age. The network wanted a younger Jimmy. Landes was closer in age to Dean and Teri. Justin Whalin was 20 years or something. Go figure.

The network got rid of Cat Grant because they felt she was "too adult" for the show. What's interesting is that Deborah Joy Levine originally planned for "Lois and Clark" to be a show for adults. She wasn't gearing it towards a family audience. It was originally supposed to air at 10 PM. In many ways, the first season of LnC is more adult than the others. You can see it clearly in the pilot episode when Lois admits outright that she slept with someone at work. (Lois Lane would never do that!!! This must prove that she wasn't really Lois!!! )

The thing is....Lois is always a babe. That's not new on Smallville. On LnC men always thought Lois was hot as all get out. It was just that Lois was so rough around the edges that she often scared men off. But she was clearly a babe. Cat was more over the top about her sexuality and yet men always still seemed to want Lois which drove Cat crazy.

When I think of Cat Grant I feel like there are two major requirements: She needs to annoy Lois and get under her skin. And she needs to really like Clark. So we'll see how Smallville handles that. :)

Thanks for the pics!!
