Hit or Miss


Smallville. Sure, the show is incurably sappy and terminally lame — but what is it about The WB and hot guys? — Michael Rosenbaum, who plays Lex Luther in the new Smallville (and who I thought was cute way back in the pathetic Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane), make my pulse race. Must be the chrome dome.

And wouldn’t you know it? I’m not the only one to pick up on the homoerotic flavor of the premiere episode. The slash fiction websites are inevitable…

You can always count on the MBTV forum folks for sharp analysis of homoerotic content of pretty much every show on the air. If any of the posters there start writing slashy fanfic, they’ll post a link to it in those forums, too.

Ah man! I missed the premiere! Anyone know whether it will be aired again soon?

I haven’t heard of any encore presentations, but I’d love to catch it again because my TiVo cut off the last bit of the episode (I have to manually program for that channel since it doesn’t show up in my TiVo listings — and don’t get me started on that!).

Have you been able to archive shows yet for transmittal via the net? =)

Vis10n | 18 Oct 2001

Nope. I never managed to get my TiVo working over the serial port (and I’ve moved on to other projects)…

Gee … I thought the show was pretty good, actually (for the WB, at least), above and beyond Tom Welling’s breathtaking gorgeousness. I wasn’t sure about the X-Files-ish subplot with Electro-Boy, but I guess we’ll have to get used to that sort of thing, being a comic book adaptation after all.

I can only imagine how much more hot Michael Rosenbaum/Lex would be if he still had the red hair he lost as a child … hubba hubba.

I love to watch Smallville the only is because of Michael aka Lex he is so HOT! At first the show confused me back now I get it.
