Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Ann Cofell Saunders Director: Mairzee Almas Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast:  October 9, 2010 EDITOR’S NOTE: Even though SMALLVILLE is over, ASSIGNMENT X missed a few episodes during Season 10 and will be filling in the reviews during the summer as The CW re-airs the show. It’s been awhile, but Clark Kent’s cousin Kara (Laura Vandervoort) returns to SMALLVILLE in “Supergirl” and guess what? Yes, she can now fly – much to Clark’s surprise. Jor-El has entrusted Kara with a task – to stop a dark force […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Shield”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Jordan Hawley Director: Glen Winter Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast:  October 2, 2010 EDITOR’S NOTE: Even though SMALLVILLE is over, ASSIGNMENT X missed a few episodes during Season 10 and will be filling in the reviews during the summer as The CW re-airs Season 10. After a strong Season 10 premiere, SMALLVILLE gets a little small (and a little too cheesy) with “Shield.” With Lois (Erica Durance) off to Egypt to serve on the Daily Planet’s foreign desk, Clark (Tom Welling) is playing the dutiful guy and […]Read On »

CD Review: SUPERMAN / SHAZAM! THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM original soundtrack

SUPERMAN/SHAZAM! THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM original soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Forget The Wonder Twins and that stupid blue monkey. DC Comics’ animation certainly isn’t kids’ stuff anymore, especially given the musical sophistication that’s put into this direct-to-video DC Showcase edition (half of whose four chapters would gleefully get a reject stamp by The Comics Code Authority). Tying the disparate sounds of its stories together are Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn, whose musical wonder powers ignite under the emblem of Track Team. Getting the muscle of a real orchestra through samples, and above all good writing, Zuckerman and Wynn bring superhero majesty, and mythic enchantment to the Showcase’s best entry that […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Finale Pt. 1 & 2” – Series Finale

  Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman, Allison Mack Writers: Al Septien & Turi Meyer (Pt. 1), Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders (Pt. 2) Directors: Kevin Fair (Pt. 1) , Greg Beeman (Pt. 2) Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: May 13, 2011 Friday the 13th proves to be unlucky (and lucky, pending on how you look at it) for SMALLVILLE fans, as the show finally ends its ten-year run on this unfortunate date with the moment we’ve all been waiting for … a wedding! Alright, that’s not what we really want from SMALLVILLE. What […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Prophecy”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Bryan Q. Miller & Anne Cofell Saunders Director: Mike Rohl Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 29, 2011 The penultimate episode of SMALLVILLE is finally here, and “Prophecy” takes a few more gigantic leaps forward into solidifying Clark Kent’s (Tom Welling) destiny as the Blur …er, I mean, Superman. First though, there’s a bunch of messy business that needs to get tidied up (or messed up). There’s one more trial that Jor-El (voice of Terrence Stamp) wants to impart on Clark. So when he announces to Jor-El […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Dominion”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: John Chisholm Director: Justin Hartley Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 29, 2011 Sadly, SMALLVILLE’s recent winning streak of episodes as it heads to its series finale was disrupted by “Dominion.” What should have been a powerful episode, instead turns out lukewarm treading on territory we’ve seen countless times before in films like 300 and GLADIATOR. The idea is a cool one though as Clark (Tom Welling) and Oliver (Justin Hartley) travel to the Phantom Zone to find out why one of the Zoners had managed to […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Booster”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Geoff Johns Director: Tom Welling Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 22, 2011 From the previews of the new SMALLVILLE episode “Booster”, it looked like a disaster in the making. A gold-plated superhero-for-hire named Booster Gold (Eric Martsolf) flies into town to one-up The Blur with his showy theatrics which include revealing his face to the public. However, as the episode progresses, it becomes a story about what it takes to really be a hero, and again, is yet another lesson for Clark Kent (Tom Welling) to […]Read On »

TV Review: SMALLVILLE – Season 10 – “Kent”

Starring: Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman Writer: Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders from a story by Genevieve Sparling Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 15, 2011 With five episodes left of the entire series run of SMALLVILLE, it looks like every episode is counting. With “Kent,” it turns out to be a particularly emotional and strong Season 10 entry that pays off the alternate universe story points we previously saw in “Luthor” where Clark Kent (Tom Welling) was raised by Lionel Luthor and became a super baddie. Clark Luthor (or AltClark […]Read On »
