Last Days of Smallville: Episode 19 Dominion

This episode was so intense. There was some brutal, hardcore, gladiator style combat. Sparks were flying, blood was flowing, and Clark and Oliver never looked so manly. I’ll admit, I was skeptical of a Zod episode at this point in the series. But they were able to tie in Darkseid to this episode, and it... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 18 Booster

I don’t know a whole lot about Booster Gold, or Blue Beetle. I did however do a bit of internet research before watching this episode of Smallville.

What a weird coincidence. This is just another occasion where my life mirrors that of Betty Suarez. I only wish I had a rich boss... Read more »

Last Days of Smallville: Episode 16 Scion

Well, it’s been ages since I’ve talked about Smallville here on ChicagoNow. Which isn’t a big deal considering there hasn’t been a new episode since March 4th, but I’ve been slacking on reviewing that episode. I’ve been meaning to get around to it, but time just got away from me. Since the episode aired again... Read more »
