Quick thoughts about Smallville 9th season premiere – Savior
A few quick thoughts on the season premiere tonight. Light spoilers ahead.
* I’m OK with the new Matrix-y suit. It’s at least closer to a superhero suit than a red jacket. (Though just get the red and blue suit already!)
* Lois pining over the Blur is great.
* Callum Blue has great presence as Zod.
* Good scenes between Tess and Zod.
* OK, you knew they’d go there, but the kneeling before Zod, pretty sweet.
* Lois and Ollie had a nice scene together as she reminds him that she knows he can be a true hero.
* Clark has a good fight scene with solid FX.
* Touching, difficult scene near the end with Chloe and Clark.
* Brian Austin Green put in a nice, suitably unsettling performance as John Corben (whose destiny was more or less revealed in the trailer for next week).
I like how the premiere set up a premise for the season and put Clark on a timeline. I thought season 8 also started with a bang, but had some slowdowns in the middle and end. We’ll see if season 9 can stay on an upward climb.
