    Cant wait no longer!

    Smallville rocks!
  • Cali
    Wow....
    First thoughts are, as usual, the action was lacking. The costumes were borderline cheesy but they worked. The hints of Apocalypse????? Could we be seeing Darkseid making an appearance???? Could it be a codename for Doomsday coming back fro Round 2??? Very interesting the way they teased a LOT of DC lore. Now if they'll just pick up the ball and run with it we've easily got another good 3-4 seasons worth of material with or without clark. I liked the way they handled the whole "Why didn't anyone know about the JSA?" It definitely had a Watchmen feel to it and was a decent storyline overall I thought.

    For the most part I was very happy with the show. but there was too many commercial breaks and they were way too long. the show was like 80 min max (if we are lucky) the rest was commercial. LOVED all the DC refrences. Geek-gasims a plenty. great casting for Amanda Waller. want Clark in his suit or at least closer to it. this suit is too rebirth (aka way to early 90s). defanitly want this on DVD so I can look at all the toys Carter Hall has in his house. Was suprised how mush screen time Alan Scott recived. suprised that some of the other got none.
  • HarlanJBryan
    IT WAS AWESOME!!!!
  • HarlanJBryan
    IT WAS AWESOME!!!! Really hope they continue using the JSA!!!
  • Grizz
    The show played out well. It still feels like they're cutting the budget to tight on the effects and costumes. I hope they ramp things up. This is way to good of a show to go away because the producers got greedy.
  • the_old_man
    I have to agree. An electrical effect around the mace during Shank's great lines would have so polished things up. I know plenty of others here could easily point out many other things. They should have taken up a collection, to put some extra shine in.

    This Episode was Epic. My fave character portrayal was Dr. Fate. It started off slow, but you got a chance to watch the members of the JSA develop. The developing relationship between "The New Gen" was also really good. The episode delivered in almost every way. Bringing in Amanda Waller and Hinting at Lex's Return made room for alot of potential upcoming story arcs. One of the best parts to me was the some of the Shared Dialogue between the Chars. A lot of great lines in this episode
  • "Think of me as your parole officer, but with a mace."

    ROFLMAO!
  • foopher
    I got a laugh out of that part too :)
  • CN
    Followed by Hawkman referring to Green Arrow as "Green Punching Bag"

    Hawkman's lines were epic!!

    Green Arrow: Clark he dropped me through a window!
    Hawkman: I hope I didn't make you cry!!

    Green Arrow: Drop the mace Conan
    Hawkman: I will...on your head!
  • foopher
    And when he called him a jackass. lol (if i can say that)
  • netters
    this is the best smallville ever
  • I would have really, really like to have seen this done with:

    A. People who can actually act

    B. A director that knows how to direct actors

    C. A script that isn't written at the level of a soap opera

    I *know* Michael Shanks can act, but the lines the poor guy was given to say made me cringe almost every time he opened his mouth. And who told him he had to emulate Christian Bale's Batman gravel voice?

    The ice kid: Worst. Actor. Ever.

    Pam Grier... wow... major bad/overdramatic line delivery.

    And to get on the geek side of things - Hawkman's wings are decorative? I'm not a big DC Comics' guy, but since when? I thought he flew through wing power and that the wings were attached to his body. (I could be mistaken about this, but it's what I remember from when I was a kid)

    I also got a kick out of everyone converging on Ice Boy at the end and every single one of them targeted his indestructible Dr Fate helmet when he had no protection at all on the rest of his body. Duh.

    The best thing about the episode was Dr Fate. I liked the character, the helmet and even the costume, but that was about it.
  • John "Kahless" Taylor
    Super mega dittos! At first I thought of Bale with Shanks' voice but then I kept thinking Dirty Harry. So much could have been done with this; it was OK but really missed the mark for me.
  • the_old_man
    I thought this was his "angry man" persona and tried to just accept it at face value. Perhap that's how the director saw Hawkman's character, having a deeper voice than Shanks could deliver.
  • A@ronW
    You have to look past the small budget and the few actors that needed some work. If you are indeed a Smallville fan Im sure you still enjoyed it alot.
  • Andre
    wow ur clueless those lines were Epic Hawkmen your pretty mucj Wrong on All counts except for Icicle!
  • GBurrs
    I must say that I disagree. First off the ways the JSA was incorporated in the story was great. And although i must admit that Icicle was a pretty bad opponent, the storyline was still great and this episode ill go down as one of the best Smallville Episodes of all time... Things I particularly liked about this episode.
    1.) The mention of Lex Luthor
    2.) Martian Manhunter turning green, phasing out, and getting his powers back
    3.) Chemistry between the JSA and the regular smallville characters/new generation (especially hawkman and green arrow)\
    4.) That one major fight scene at the end when Clark, the green Arrow, Hawkman, Stargirl, and Martian Manhunter team up (although it may have been a little cheesy i like how they were all moving at Icicle in slow mo)
    5.) Reference to familiar comic book characters... Green Lantern, the flash, ext

    I also like how not only are the smallville characters coming together to form an actual league (finally...) but now their is a possibility for either a JSA spin-off episode or even another Smallville superhero "team" episode maybe involving Bart, Cyborg, and A.C. this time. Overrall AMAZING episode!
  • johnwang420
    Is there going to be an encore presentation? I had to work and dont have tivo!!!!
  • The CW doesn't generally do encores and unfortunately they don't show episodes online on their site. Don't know where you might find it.
  • Chandler1
    Actually the CW does show episodes online at their site. I should know lol, because I've had to watch a few episodes of Supernatural and Smallville that I missed when they were aired
  • Just heard back from CW PR and they literally just put "Absolute Justice" on their website to watch.

    Loved the episode regardless of the cheeziness :-) Can't wait for more!
  • the idiot
    hey, you can watch it at www.watchsmallvilleonline.com
    enjoy;)
  • JaySin420
    Unbelievable! I don't know what was better: Manhunter flashing green and saving the day, the mention of Lex being alive, or Hawkman being the most badass superhero in the history of tv.
  • Cali
    Hey Vic just to answer your question about Hawkman's wings. They are detachable. They're actually made of Nth metal. I could have gone with a better looking breastplate for his costume but other than that I was a happy geek for the most part
  • Jennifer
    Hi. Check out the links I posted above to see where you can go watch online.
    Cheers!
