If you were paying attention to the opening last night's Smallville (Tuesdays at 9/8 central on the WB), you should have gotten a good ol' chuckle. Johnathan Kent was driving in his truck listening to Waylon Jenning's "Good Ol' Boy" on the radio. Possibly a tribune to the late country singer, but you chuckled because Luke Duke was listening to the theme song to Dukes of Hazzard.
Remember the one episode of the original Star Trek where Spock gets sprayed by some plant and find emotion and love? Well, I think that same plant was apart of Smallville's plot, too. Jonathan Kent got sprayed and was all over his wife, slapping her ass, even putting of his regular farm work so they could...uh...do some other farming, if you catch my drift. Lana Lang got sprayed, and, well remember Phoebe Cates from Fast Times at Ridgemont High when she got out of the pool? Remember how turned-on you were when you first saw that? Well, I think the WB generation felt the same way last night (I know I did *giggle*)
Too bad one of the side effects of being sprayed by the plant was a coma that could lead to death...That's because a crazy scientist cross-bred the plant with ...anyone???....meteor rocks, aka Kryptonite. I won't get into the whole plot of it all, but if you want to go here, and choose the Nicodemus episode (or just browse around and drool over the pictures of Lex).
I don't know where I was going with that...but at least Smallville didn't have the usual "freak of the week" for Clark to fight. And that was an interesting change. Here's hoping they write more Smallville's without a "freak of the week."
