Smallville - Leech - 02/12/02

I hate when I see someone, and then can't figure out where I know them from.

But I love the Internet Movie Database. I just wish that most TV Guide listings would tell me who the guest stars are, so I can immediately get my fix.

Watching Smallville last night, I knew I recognized Eric, but just couldn't place him. I only caught his name quickly, knew it was Shawn A(something). Definitely not Astin, but maybe Astor? IMDB as no luck, so I turned to TV Guide, which fortunately this week had the guest stars (it did NOT last week, so I still am not sure if my guess as to the crazy guy in the woods is accurate). Shawn Ashmore. See, I was close!

So I go look him up, and I see that he's been on Animorphs. I've seen some of those, they were fun. But it's still not quite right. Then I see it. He was Bobby "Iceman" Drake on X-Men. Bingo!

The rest of the episode, I'm yelling, "No, Bobby! Don't do it, Bobby!"

It was a good episode. Good Lex bits with Victoria's attempts to use him, and it all blowing up in her face. Lou had to tell me who was in the pictures he got at the end, though, it went by so fast I didn't recognize him.

It was a good way for Clark to see that "With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility" (I know that's Spiderman's motto, but hey, it works here) and also a good way for him to see that who he is is really more than his powers. He's a product of his upbringing, powers or not.

And it was a decent way to do the "Oh no, I've lost my powers" episode. I had a blast seeing Clark enjoy life as a normal teenager, though we all know it wouldn't last.

Not much Lana, but she didn't have a lot to do here.

Overall, 7/10.

ok someone please help,
I am searching for the music that is played at the end of this episode. Not Fade by Staind, but the music when Clark hands back the necklace. The lyrics i kept picking up were 'so pretty in white'. Sounded like a chilled rock band.

Any info would be cool, please email me at jim@jameswaldron.co.uk

Cheers :)

Jim

I am trying to figure out the name of the song played on Smallville's last episode of the 2nd season when Clark walked into the barn and Lana was waiting for him to go to Lex's wedding. He then talks to her and sends her off by herself... Who sings that song and what is the name of it. It goes s.th. like "here by my side...never turn your back on me again...". I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out here! Thanks guys...
