Consider this a life lesson, no charge – Lois Lane
So before I start this review I would like to point something out, at the opening of this episode we have Lex Luthor in his office/tower/home talking to his bodyguard when two women bring him a neon pink and green pogo stick to which he replies ‘ah yes, perfect’ then sends them on their way…….why does Lex need a pogo stick? what is he going to do with this pogo stick?? why is it neon pink and green??? and why oh why is it perfect???? This is never mentioned again or even touched on and I need to know the story behind this! I kept waiting for it to pop up again (pun intended) at some point, but no, nothing and now I’ll never know what happened with it lol.
So pogo stick aside this episode very much focuses on Lex Vs Superman , with Lex trying to test Superman’s limits with various tests, having two people jump of a building at the same time to see how fast he is, then blowing up a bank that he’s in to see how invulnerable the Man of Steel is. although that’s it before Superman has enough and gives Lex a private demonstration of his powers! But this just gives Lex the opportunity to let Superman know that all the time he is in Metropolis people will die, which leaves Clark wondering whether being Superman is really a good idea.
Elsewhere in this episode we are treated to Lois being all kinds of obsessed over Superman to the point that she begins stealing other peoples stories just to get the front page story, which obviously doesn’t go down very well with Clark who sets her up a beauty!
We also get to see Clark’s new apartment and man I wish I could live in a space like that for $950 a month, bargain!! And Perry and Jimmy’s relationship in the show really begins to take shape.
Overall a very enjoyable episode apart from pogogate oh and I’m not a fan of the suit with the cape that goes all the way over Clark’s shoulders, it looks odd and is very low cut lol! Other than that a classic episode that really finds its groove with its characters, setting them all up for a good first season!
Next up episode 5 ‘I’m Looking Through You’
