Smallville 8.03 Toxic

The version of this I watched was very glitchy and missing a chunk out of the middle so it made even less sense than it might otherwise. A full write-up will have to wait until I've obtained a more reliable version. I loved it again! I found my zen with it. Also: TORSO-RAMA! Wow, they really pimped Justin's physical assets in this didn't they. *blinks* It was old-school Smallville objectification in the best of ways.

And Tess is Mercy! And COOL! Or at least somewhat cooler than she has been. I saw a flicker of chemistry between her and Oliver which was good, because while I heart the sizzling slashy vibes with Lois, the plot seems to demand that she be able to carry some sexual tension with boys as well. I loooove that she gave Oliver the info about his parents. And wow, I'm impressed the show went there and didn't just whitewash over the issue. Much angst between the BFFs!

Oliver's childhood trauma is... mosquitoes?! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I was in stitches over that. Oh, Ollie, I do love you and it is absolutely APPALLING that Clark did not tell you about your parents, and I really do sympathise with your angst overall, you bore up terribly well on an island for two years, but ... mosquitoes? Dude. Could the writers not think of anything more dreadful? Er, what about the lack of food and shelter, the loneliness or the fact that someone stole his clothes at some point? Or did the mosquitoes eat them? :) Ah, Smallville.

Lois stole Clark's coffee even though he had written his name on it! HEEEEE. I love it! And why oh why do we not get to see Clark report on kittens? That is a crime! Tom + cute kitties? Surely the most adorable concept ever invented, yes? *sulks at not seeing it on screen* They're just teasing us, I tell you!

Overall, this ep (what bits I glimpsed of it) seemed very Season 4 level of crazy--the combination of male nudity, implausible plotlines of craziness yet moments of sheer brilliance... And I liked Season 4. So: *happy*.

    2012 was fucking dreadful. Not ALL of it. But much of it. I've never felt so disorientated, terrified or dissociated from myself and life as I did in…
