9.9, I liked it!  
A miracle occurred! I watched an episode of Smallville Season 9 and enjoyed it! :D :D :D :D

Yes, Pandora. \o/ I didn't love it, but I enjoyed it, and I may even have Things to Say about it. When I can wipe the grin off my face and compose them...

Woot! Yay for me! I think this is the first ep since 9.1 that I haven't found predominantly excruciating.

Let me guess? Fandom hated it, right? LOL.

Yay! I thought you might and it was hard for me not to spoil it! People died! I think I really like post-apocalyptic worlds and people dying even though it was kinda hard for me to see Tess go. Not the rest of them, though!

And for the first time, I kinda got the Zod plot? Maybe? I don't know!

I don't know what fandom thought as I only discuss this show with you, Tara, or Ferd. And I'm not quite sure if one ep makes up for the previous ones. SV still needs to step it up!

Oh, and AJ was in it. :-D

I liked seeing Smallville's (hilarious) take on a post-apocalyptic world. ;) It was so... clean. Did you see how white Clark's tshirt was? :D

Oh, yeah, I don't expect this to actually continue. But I'm glad I enjoyed one ep before the hiatus. :)

Yay! \o/ There are those of us who liked it, never fear. Just, you know, a lot of the ep didn't really make much sense and some people have problems with that. ;-)

HEEEEE. Sense?! Pfft! What place does that have in the Smallville universe?

There was quite a bit of complaining about it, but lots of us loved it too! Yay!

I've hushed my complaining for a long time, because it's so boring. But now I shall be squeeful while I can. \o/ Smallville joy is rare these days--I'm going to revel. ;)

Unless the episode was amazing (or had zombies) I'm still not watching.

Well... I'd trade this ep for the one with zombies any day! The zombie ep was Not Good in my view. This one was dystopian/post-apocalyptic.....? Come oonnnnn.... you know you wanna see how hilarious the Smallville version of that is!

I liked it and I haven't read anything to the contrary on my F-list.

Yeah, I admit I wasn't really paying attention. I perked up for half a minute when Chloe was twitching and Ollie showed up. And I shouted "Hey it's AJ!" when Dr. Emil showed up. And uh then I went back to my laptop. **shrugs**

Hee! Tuning out of Smallville? Totally understandable! If I hadn't been watching in company, I would have drifted off in many an ep this season...

I'd love to hear your thinky thoughts about this! I certainly didn't hate it, but it had a lot of problems. Its one of those episodes that if I could have just gone with the flow, I would have been squeeing like mad, but... As I said in my review, I could nitpick the episode to death. I'm starting to really dislike S9!Chloe, which is so sad becasue I adored Chloe from before S8.

I went with the flow! \o/ I mean there were heaps of things that made No Sense but if I let that hold me back I'd never watch Smallville at ALL! I did have to repeat my mantra 'never apply logic to the Smallville episode' a few times, but unlike most episodes this seaosn it had an emotional narrative I could actually enjoy.

I'm sorry you're mourning Chloe. I went through that a while back and am out the other side... I used to like her too, but I really can't and I've made my peace with that so that wasn't a struggle for me in this ep. In fact I was annoyed Lois emoed over her for so long. ;) That's how far gone I am!

I didnt hate it on my first viewing, but I liked it more when I watched it back to back with Savior.

Ohh, nice idea! I might do that before posting Thoughts. :D
