|good thing this bronze statue is actually lead. Hope no one misses it so I don't have to find a pipe or literally anything but this valuable looking statue.|
I came to many realizations watching this week's episode.
- Reactron is not a terribly creative villain. He was kind of a one-trick-pony/ no personality guy in the comics, and here... more of same. Why did I used to like that guy? Costume design? No idea. I like the name, though. Could be that's it.
- If Cat Grant were anymore one-note on this show, she'd be a tone in Koyaanisqatsi
- The writers have just absolutely nowhere to go with Win. That dude is going to die horribly so anyone can give him a passing thought and he'll ever have mattered in the show. Also, I am not sure working a low-tier job at CatCo would set you up to hack satellites, get you $30K in equipment, and all the rest of the Smallville Watchtower responsibility he's taken on. He's so forgettable, I have to place him every time he appears in frame.
- I have no idea what Kara's sister's name is after 3 hours of television. She's just "Kara's-Sister".
- By episode 6, not one character in the DCU will have a secret identity unknown to Win. truly, that man is the nexus of the DCU
Three episodes in, I'm a little stunned at how badly the writers are handling Cat Grant. I have no huge expectations, but that the "interview" scene was incredibly poorly managed after the big build up last episode. It's like Cat's terrible dialog is infecting everyone else's forgettable or fortune-cookie dialog.
