Okay, I don't know what everyone else makes of this series (if anyone else is actually watching it), but am I the only one who thinks that after a promising start and a couple of good episodes (the foreshadowing of Lex's future in Casandra's vision was particularly sweet) that it is heading rapidly down hill? To begin with the character interplay and the burgeoning homoerotic subtext of Clark and Lex's friendship was pretty entertaining. Add to this the mystery of Clark's unblemished and curiously orange skin and you have all the makings of compelling weekly TV. But now the show has been completely taken over by tedious Kryptonite-mutants-of-the-week, every one of which appears to have walked in from a particularly bad episode of The X Files. Every bloody week it's the same thing, somebody gets infected by Kryptonite, becomes a novelty (and incredibly lame) villain and gets defeated at the end. Yawn! Last week's episode (which I only caught on the Sunday repeat - hense the late post) was undoubtedly the worst to date. Despite featuring the wonderful Tony Todd, the idea of pitting Clark against a hyperactive epileptic was one of the most ludicrous things I've seen in a long time, and the script was about as banal as they come. Don't get me wrong, I love superhero stuff, but this is starting to sink to depths that even Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman didn't manage to get to.
