Is it a review? Is it a list? No, it’s our retrospective on Smallville‘s seventh season…
Synopsis: In the wake of his battle with Bizarro, Clark is reunited with his long-lost cousin, Kara, and tries one last time to rekindle his romance with Lana. Meanwhile, Chloe comes to terms with being a meteor freak and Lois Lane becomes a star reporter at the Daily Planet – who’d have thunk it? And, in the shadows, Lex Luthor is giving in to the darkness…
As always, Smallville opens the season with a bang. Bizarro is a strong threat – basically Red K Clark gone solo – and every character is moved into an interesting position on the board. 9/10
Supergirl arrives in Smallville! Laura Vandervoort makes an interesting addition to the cast as Clark’s Kryptonian cousin Kara. Meanwhile, Lois finally gets a job at the Daily Planet. 8.5/10
Aaand we’re back to the meteor freaks – this time some weather-warping beauty pageant girls. This one is saved by the family bonding of Clark and Kara and Lex’s change of heart. 8/10
Dr Curtis Knox – former Superman Dean Cain – claims he has a cure for meteor freaks… but he’s really an evil mad scientist. Good episode with a strong theme of doomed romance. 8/10
A Warrior Angel movie is being made on the Kent farm – which brings Clark unwanted attention. Meanwhile, Lionel plays Misery. Some great moments, though a bit heavy-handed overall. 8/10
I’m a sucker for when Clark explores his Kryptonian origins so I enjoyed this flashback-heavy episode which introduces his birth mother, Lara-El (former Supergirl star Helen Slater). 8.5/10

O.T but have you seen the new Despicable Me trailer? In my opinion it gives away way too much of the story 😁
Haha that is off-topic! Just seen it – I see what you mean, it does give a fair bit away.
Are you a fan of those movies? I’m a bit out of touch with them, as I’ve only seen the first one.

I like them but was happy with just 2 movies. They’re funny but they’re not perfect 😁. I enjoyed number 2 so would recommend seeing it.
I didn’t laugh at all with the trailer so that’s saying something but I’m willing to give it a go.
Really sorry about it being off topic, I saw the trailer and wondered if you’d have a ‘Trailer’ post done.
Ah Ok, thanks for the recommendation, I’ll give it a go!
Haha no worries! The more discussion the merrier. Hmm, good point. I’ve just created one. 😀
