Despite low ratings for Smallville here, Channel Ten continue to charm me with their ad campaign. The voiceover to the short clip for this week's ep? Uncover Clark Kent's greatest secret... *cut to Clark ripping Lex's shirt off*

This is just blatantly wrong (surely Lex wearing a wire is a *Lex* secret) ... and yet so RIGHT! ;-)

Also, much love for this story: Heath asks Jake to be godfather. And the kid's got one of my favourite girl's names!

(What? I'm working. Honest!)

So Australia is only on season 4? (That ad campaign sounds cute!)

Yeah we are WAY behind! It only got picked up again here (after getting axed mid S2) in October or thereabouts. They've been screening two or three eps a week, but are still scrabbling to catch up to the US. They kicked off with a 'faster! stronger! hotter!' campaign that I was very fond of, and have had some great moments. But this week's was a highlight.

No, not really! It's very cute. The longer version says 'This week on Smallville... find out how Clark Kent's BEST FRIEND (shot of Lex looking desirous) becomes his WORST ENEMY (shot of shirt ripping)'. It's also good, but doesn't have quite the same pizzazz as the short version!

a propos not so much of the shirt-ripping (though that does sound interesting) as of the subtext, i'll pose an idle question that has taken up more of my mental time than it should've: do you think the makers of the show foresaw and/or intended the amazing chemistry that welling and rosenbaum worked up from the very start? i mean, how much are we reading into the show, and how much did they slyly put there for us to pick up on? (i think the bits of rps i've read have played with this question -- is it because the two actors have chemistry, or because they're actorly enough to carry out the wishes of the writers and producers?)

having said all that, and i am too talkative today by far (for which i apologize), i'll STFU. :)

I always like quesions of this sort! Never apologise.

Well, my own take on this is that the creators were happy for there to be subtext--I cite the way Al and Miles are gleeful about the 'meet violent' and kiss in the Pilot, their continued enjoyment in having Clark's shirt ripped off him, and also what they've said about the casting of Lex (they wanted someone with 'interesting' sexuality). And they take great delight in the chemistry between the two leads. I think there *is* obvious chemistry between Tom and Michael. I think some of that is luck, but I'm sure the writers are delighted by it. I actually think a lot of the subtext is brought by Michael, and his willingness (or delight!) from the start to play with it. It seems like he made a big game of it with Tom, and it worked. I also get the sense that the crew (especially the props guys) get a kick out of it too. And Greg Beeman must have a hand in allowing some of those things to go through too (e.g. the long check-out look in Red). So it's a mix, I think.

OoO I had no idea that AlMiles specifically went for someone with "interesting sexuality"! That certainly adds yet another layer. I'll be able to get over my love for them being so willing to bring on the gay. They might have made some bad choices, but there will always be the Clex. Forever and always, amen.

And Yay! for Channel 10's promo! That is so very very awesome.

"interesting" sexuality. oh, that is revealing, isn't it? MR can get sexy with inanimate objects (like the ty nant bottles and the pool cues you're hinting at with the props guys). he's really something else. i love it that he can be unbelievably silly and then smolderingly sexual in the next breath.

yes, that scene in Red where clark strides in wearing that gorgeous coat, and lex looks at him, wow. (this is where TW's having been a model really paid off, too. he wears beautiful clothes very well.)

thanks for your response! this helps me get a fix on it. :)

Oh, how I'd love it if we got those kind of promos here, hee! Too, too funny. :)

Yuh! Cute. Someone in that building opposite me has a sense of humour! (I work opposite the Channel 10 studios.)

Now they *know* why people are really watching the show. ;)

Yeah! I can't wait to see what they do with, say, Devoted. They are *so* going to show the locker room scene in the ad! Perhaps with a voiceover that says 'Can Lex win back Clark's affections?'
Cris: Clois - LMAOduskwillow on February 23rd, 2006 10:27 pm (UTC)

Oh just admit it - you're the one writing those ads!

If I was, I'd have this moment included in the S5 ad trailers...

Yes that's another really nice moment. *g*
