1x12 "Leach"
AKA the episode in which everyone speaks in aphorisms and cliches. No, really. Narrative and character aside, I think this is the most poorly written episode yet. *eyeroll* I almost think it's a joke, except no one ever recognizes ALL the stupid cliches so it reads as poor writing.

Whoops! These got long, so it's time for some cuts.

Meh. )

1x13 "Kinetic"

3 minutes in and I'm more engaged with this ep than the previous! Lex! And Chloe (who is rapidly becoming my second favorite character, what a shock)! In Lex's house! Bad guys! Teleportation! A fake arm! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG.
Canadian Actor Bingo, anyone? )

1x14 "Zero"

HOLY SHIT LEX.
No.
HOLY SHIT!
This intro has NOTHING on the last!
Lots of flails, capslock, and adverbs under here! )
OH LEX. OH CLARK.
OH CHLOE.

I just want to hug them all but especially Lex.

Question: In doctor shows, narratives revolve, in part, around the Patient of the Week. In sci fi shows, it's the Monster of the Week. So what's the parlance for this show? Meteor-rock-user of the week?
