Articles for Smallville Season 10

Smallville is coming to a close this season whether we like it or not. While it may be a sure thing that Clark will fly, the Superman suit is on its way and Lois and Clark will be together in the end, getting there is over half the fun. And to keep up with all, BuddyTV wants your help. For the final season, we‘re looking for a Fan Columnist, a devoted fan with a hunger to write weekly recaps for Smallville. A Fan Columnist will highlight all the important moments with their own twist and insights.  Read more »

After months of intense anticipation to see how the Blur will survive that deadly fall, Smallville kicks off its tenth and final season. "Lazarus" arrives with the stepping-stones for Clark Kent‘s final journey in becoming the world‘s greatest hero.  With callbacks to the past and evil looming everywhere, it looks like we have a mind-twisting season ahead of us and if you blink you might miss something.RevelationsJust as I had feared after the finale, Lois Lane is the one to find Clark‘s body.  Cradling him in the iconic position, Lois pleads for him not to leave her while Clark faces off with Jor-El in the abyss between life and death. Jor-El sounds from above to lecture Clark in the never-ending evils of the world.  Challenging his old man, Clark insists he send him back to Earth.  Jor-El goes silent and the possibility of Clark dying sinks in for a moment but that‘s not what caused a gasp.  Looking around, Clark sees a familiar bald figure.  That‘s right, Lex Luthor is there in limbo.  Unfortunately it is not Michael Rosenbaum but it gets the blood pumping nonetheless.  With a flash of light the sun is up and the Blue Kryptonite dagger is out.  Who knows how long Lois waited to pull it out but seeing her man start to awaken, she runs off and watches her hero heal in the sun before superspeeding away. Read more »
There are two ways to deal with your loved ones choosing to leave.  You can respect their decision or you can go out looking to bring them back.  It was refreshing to see Clark choose to respect Lois‘ decision to take the job in Africa.In the latest episode, "Shield," our characters are taught a lesson in acceptance of their roles in saving the world. Read more »
Look!  In the sky!  It‘s a bird!  It‘s a plane!  It‘s Uber Girl!  Power Girl?  Mega Girl?  The episode may be called "Supergirl" but we can‘t give her that "Super" title before our Man of Steel gets his, now can we?  Tonight‘s episode marked the return of Clark‘s super-powered cousin, Kara-El.  But this family reunion isn‘t all hugs and laughs, although there are some LOL-worthy moments.  Darkness is afoot and our heroes are forced to face it head-on.  Read more »
Very few shows make it to 200 episodes.  And even fewer deliver their best episode 10 seasons in.  I was expecting the episode to be good but I did not expect it to take over the position of my favorite episode of the series.With everything but Lex Luthor and the tights, tonight‘s groundbreaking episode, "Homecoming," looks back at the past and provides a glimpse of the future as Clark discovers the darkness within him.  Read more »
The CW has always been a fifth place network, coming in behind ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. But now, on Friday nights, that‘s no longer true.In total viewers, the CW beat FOX on Friday night, led by the 200th episode of Smallville that earned the show‘s best rating since moving to Friday nights last season.

Today is apparently International Caps Lock Day on the Internet, and the BuddyTV writers aren‘t just celebrating: We‘re cele-berating, by using our caps lock key to virtually yell at the people on TV who piss us off.They may be kind of hard to read, but isn‘t that the point? It‘s clear these characters are in need of some serious tough love. Read them, then try your own!  Read more »
This show really loves to tease the flight card, doesn‘t it?  Everyone seems to get to fly before Clark.  While it doesn‘t bother me, it‘s driving plenty of fans nuts.In the latest episode, "Isis", an ancient Egyptian spirit possesses Lois and Clark must decide what he‘s willing to risk in the name of love.  Read more »
A Halloween episode where no one gets possessed?  Now that is refreshing!  No zombies, no vampires, no witches - just some good old children of the corn.  In the latest episode, "Harvest", Lois, Clark and Tess all learn a lesson in faith as the dynamic duo face off against a misguided Amish community while Tess struggles in curing little Alexander. Read more »
Meeting the in-laws can make or break a relationship.  Lucky for Clark, he‘s already met the Lane clan.  But having General Sam Lane show up just as he‘s about have sex with his daughter does not make Clark look like the world‘s best boyfriend.The latest episode, "Ambush", has Clark taking on the General, who has brought more trouble with him than just Lois‘ kid sister, Lucy.  Read more »

It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People‘s Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder‘s highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it‘s an embarrassment. Read more »
Things may go nuclear in Smallville but the nuclear family is nowhere to be found.  Everyone carries with them the ghost of a lost parent.  Even Clark, who grew up in the adopted nuclear Kent family, carries the ghosts of his Kryptonian parents.In tonight‘s emotionally creepy episode, "Abandoned", our characters are faced with the losses of their pasts and must find a way to fill the voids left behind.  Read more »

Smallville will come to an end this May after 10 seasons, and with only 11 episodes left, I‘ve started thinking about how I want it all to end.

One month ago One Tree Hill did an episode about Brooke‘s bachelorette party told Hangover-style as the girls tried to remember what happened on their wild night.

There have been plenty of memorable guest stars over the 10 seasons of Smallville. But few have been as instantly entertaining as this week‘s new hero, Booster Gold, played by Days of Our Lives star Eric Martsolf.Booster is a cocky, smug, self-promoting hero from the future who loves being in the spotlight more than saving people and whose 1,000-watt smile charms all the ladies (well, almost all). Martsolf (who previously worked with Justin Hartley on Passions), perfectly captures the character‘s smug exterior while simultaneously infusing him with heart and some very valuable lessons for Clark Kent.  Read more »
