Guys, how bad-ass was Smallville: Absolute Justice?! INSANELY BAD-ASS, is what I’m saying.

Stargirl, Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Icicle and Amanda Waller all dropped in to pay our beloved Metropolis residents a little visit. And then…shit got awesome!

Geoff Johns did a brilliant job of writing a standalone ep for DC Comics lovers while advancing the plot of several Smallville threads. I am loath to spoil any reveals of this spectacular 2-hour episode, so let me just say: the advances in respects to Martian Manhunter, Watchtower and the Justice League family, the fates of Clark, Chloe and Lois, and the little bomb Dr. Fate dropped on Clark regarding a certain nemesis were all mind-blowing!

Updated! 2.5.10

It’s Recommends Day Wednesday ’round these parts, and I’m here to recommend a historic television event that will MELT YOUR FACES CLEAR OFF YOUR HEADS! Smallville: Absolute Justice, the 2-hour movie event, will air this Friday, 2.5.10, on The CW (8/7c). And holy lord, I cannot WAIT.

This movie isn’t just for established fanpersons of my favorite show—it’s for comic geeks everywhere. Smallville has employed DC Comic legend Geoff Johns to bring the Justice Society of America to Metropolis to shake things up for Clark, Oliver, Chloe & co. For non-nerds (what are you doing here?), the JSA was the precursor to the Justice League of America, of which Superman, Green Arrow, Batman & The Flash (to name a few) are a part. Johns is focusing on Hawkman, Stargirl, Doctor Fate and villain Icicle for this unprecedented television event, and we’ll also get our first look at Amanda Waller‘s Checkmate operation, a multi-episode arc going to the divine Pam Grier. And did I mention the superb Phil Morris is back as Martian Manhunter/John Jones? Smallville is bringing it this season, and OMG I’M SO EXCITED I MIGHT ACTUALLY EXPLODE!! Continue reading

Hello Smallville fans! This post is for you today–that’s right, every single one of you!

As previously posted on DIH, producers are marveling that the typical death knell that is the Friday Night Move is proving to not be as lethal as expected for our resilient little show. Smallville’s pretty much kicking ass and taking names in the Friday night department (hardly a juggernaut evening, but still), and producers and other PTB are already talking about a 10th season.
