Heckin' wow, Roulette sucked.
The lady who played Victoria seemed a bit limited in her line delivery. I wasn't sure if she's just bad, or if she was choking on the script. But I just found all of it so hilariously bad.
Also amusing was the ham-fisted direction. "You're coming back for me, even though I would have abandoned you?" Ugh. "You just had to find the hero inside! Now let me repeat that in case the audience didn't get it!"
Really, there were a lot of stinkers as far as lines go, but the worst line ever uttered on this show may have been "it's a long story about Lois, laundry, and lacy things." I know they thought they were being artsy, but that's not Clark.
Speaking of Clark and Lois, Fifi and I were watching this together, and during the movie scene she asked me if Allison was still with the show at this point. I said that if I remembered correctly, she had reduced her involvement. She responded "well, it just seems like Lois manipulated her way into [Clark's] life. They were never this close."
Lol. I'm just glad that people with no horse in the race years after the fact can see that there was a hard shift regarding Chloe, Clark and Lois. It's absurd that at the time people were arguing it was character-driven and made sense. It's about as organic as a nuclear power plant.
I thought the person behind the quackery was Tess until the point where we saw Chloe at a computer with her eyes shaded. Then my analysis was pretty much the same as Oliver's; who knew about the facts and could also do all the things possible to facilitate the masquerade. I didn't realize that we'd have offscreen Justice League, but Smallville is nothing if not an ad for its much more exciting unfilmed sister show.
