Re: Kel's Comments

Of course you're not annoying me! I'm always happy to see you comment. And ramble away; I love long comments, and I'm known for making marathon ones myself!

Labyrinth is also one of my favorites. Any episode that gives Tom the opportunity to stretch his acting muscles is a treat, and Labyrinth was exceptionally well done, IMO. In addition to Tom's amazing performance, and all the twists and turns of the AU, the episode was visually stunning.

Like you, I thoroughly enjoyed the Lois and Clark interaction in Apocalypse, both in and out of the AU. I hope we see something similar in S8. But I have to disagree about Jimmy. I know it's an unpopular opinion in fandom (at least where I hang out), but I kind of adore Jimmy. I think Aaron Ashmore does a good job, and captures the iconic Jimmy Olsen pretty well. Yes, he can be annoying, and I don't like everything about him (I hate the Chimmy), but I've enjoyed a lot of his scenes this season. But to be honest, my love for AA makes me very forgiving when it comes to Jimmy. When I'm a fan of the actor, I tend to cut his character more slack.

I couldn't agree with you more than Tom understands who Clark Kent should be! How I wish he were a producer on the show, as many television stars are, so he could have more of a voice in his character's development. At the very least, I'm hoping the new show runners will be more open to his input than AlMiles were.

I always liked Kara, and especially the scenes between the cousins. I've never seen any sexual chemistry there, though. I think strange was the point of that last scene between them; in fact, I think we were supposed to think that Kara was acting OOC. I wish so badly that Tom would do a commentary track and actually tell us why he made the choices he did as the director of this episode. That would be so fascinating!

I would love to see Tom with Selma Blair again, I thought they had wonderful chemistry. I like the idea of him opposite smart, funny women. I think Rachel McAdams would be great, or Zooey Deschanel, or Jennifer Garner. And I like your suggestion of Kate Beckinsale a lot!

Thanks so much for all your comments! I love talking about the show, and your insights and observations are really interesting. I hope to see you come back again!
