    We're about two thirds of the way through S5 right now and I was curious to see where people's heads were at with the season so far.

    I'll update this post with new episode titles as they're announced, but here's where we stand as of 2/10/06:

    Aired eps
    01 Arrival
    02 Mortal
    03 Hidden
    04 Aqua
    05 Thirst
    06 Exposed
    07 Splinter
    08 Solitude
    09 Lexmas
    10 Fanatic
    11 Lockdown
    12 Reckoning
    13 Vengeance
    14 Tomb

    Unaired
    15 Cyborg
    16 Hypnotic
    17 Void
    18 Fragile
    19 Mercy
    20 Fade
    21 Oracle
    22 Vessel

    Rank 'em! Ga head, you know you want to. :p



    Here's my list:

    Hidden
    Vengeance
    Mortal
    Splinter
    Arrival
    Reckoning
    Solitude
    Aqua
    Exposed
    Thirst
    Lexmas
    Lockdown
    Fanatic
    Tomb


    BTW, my criteria for that order is solely based on how apt I am to rewatch any particular episode, because if I can watch it repeatedly, there must be *something* about it that I really enjoy.

    Here's my list and the scores I gave each one in my reviews...

    Interesting seeing it spelled out like this, btw. For example, I loathed most of Aqua but graded that on a curve because of Marsters most excellent introduction as Brainiac.

    EDIT: changed my mind about some of these...

    Hidden - 5
    Reckoning - 5
    Vengeance 4.5
    Splinter 4.5
    Arrival - 4.5
    Solitude - 4.5
    Mortal - 4
    Lexmas - 4.5
    Thirst - 4
    Aqua - 4
    Lockdown - 4
    Fanatic - 4
    Tomb - (grade still pending, but probably will be a 3.5)
    Exposed - 3

    Aqua , I gave it 9 for,

    (1)Overall Good story

    (2) like Sv's version Of Aquaman,

    (3)First appearnce of James Marsters as Pros. Milton Fine / Brainiac,

    (4)The scene Where Lex captured Arthur trying to get infomation out him was (a great Lex Luthor moment.)

    (5) I like the underwater fight between Arthur & Clark.

    (6) Loved seeing Lois in The Red Bikini, then The Blue & yellow one.

    (7){Not much Clana}

    \8/ And I really enjoyed The ending, Lois & Clark Forshadowing.

    Exposed

    (1) Lois & Clark episode

    (2) Lois Undercover as Stripper (The scene was hot & Funny)

    (3) Lois once showing she not a A Damsel in Distress (kicking The diplomat ass, before getting tasered, and again while in The helcopther

    (4) Lots of Forshadowing

    (5) Tom Wopat & John Schneider (I'm a huge fan of The Dukes of Hazzard Tv series)

    (6) Seeing Jonathan/John Schneider driving Dodge Charger / General Lee

    (7) NO LANA LANG :D

    \8/ The ending with Lois & Clark (more forshadowing Of their Future together :supes:


    Lexmas

    (1) Lana Luthor - (I loved KK, She gave an outstanding preformance. I found this version of Lana to be a beautiful peaceful angel, she was really happy,Kind & Sweet.
    She was nothing like her pain in the ass, self centered teenager version.

    (2) Lex Luthor - (We finally got to see Michael Rosenbaum in Lex, Which was just so damn funny. Lex driving a old beat up car, Lex trying to put the carseat in the car. Lex & The Christmas tree)

    (3) The Christmas theme - I was happy for once Smallville had a Christmas theme.

    (4) Lionel Luthor - John Glover preformance both in Lex's dream & in The hospital scenes were awesome.

    (5) Clark as Santa that was Funny - remind's me of a Lois & Clark Christmas episode.

    (6) Clark showing The real Santa, that Christmas is still meaning full and he shouldn't give up.

    I gave one point for each level, so the ep at the bottom of everybody's list got one point, while the ep at the top got 14. (There have been 14 episodes so far.)

    Here are the numbers:

    01 Arrival 10 10 10 9 10 10 14 9 14 9 11 14 11 = 141
    02 Mortal 12 9 8 11 9 8 7 2 8 11 12 8 10 = 115
    03 Hidden 14 14 14 14 13 14 13 6 13 14 13 12 14 = 168
    04 Aqua 7 1 9 4 2 5 2 10 6 6 7 3 4 = 66
    05 Thirst 5 7 1 5 8 6 4 1 7 2 3 4 8 = 61
    06 Exposed 6 2 3 2 3 1 1 12 5 5 4 7 5 = 56
    07 Splinter 11 12 12 12 12 11 10 13 11 12 5 11 13 = 145
    08 Solitude 8 8 11 7 7 9 11 14 10 13 14 9 6 = 127
    09 Lexmas 4 6 7 10 5 7 8 11 4 7 10 10 7 = 96
    10 Fanatic 2 5 4 3 4 3 5 4 2 4 1 5 2 = 44
    11 Lockdown 3 4 5 8 6 4 6 5 3 8 6 6 3 = 67
    12 Reckoning 9 13 13 13 14 13 12 8 12 10 9 1 12 = 139
    13 Vengeance 13 11 6 6 11 12 9 7 9 3 8 13 9 = 117
    14 Tomb 1 3 2 1 1 2 3 3 1 1 2 2 1 = 23

    User ratings are listed in posting order and taken from the lists posted by AgentPat, avidreader, boyscouT, Serene, mellyM, triplet, Red X, Kal-El 8, KalKai, Crisis Superman, Brainiac 8, vyperman7 and rumpuso.

    I couldn't factor in the following users because:

    Hulk: incomplete list (Mortal)
    boydston_14: incomplete list (Lexmas & Exposed)
    Robin_Begins: not in order of preference
    superboy13_bt: not in order of preference

    (Just a reminder, it doesn't matter what criteria you chose to rank the eps, but the lists need to be complete and in ORDER of preference if you'd like your numbers factored into the big picture. Giving them a 2/10, or 10/10 doesn't help if more than one episode shares the same rating on the same list.)

    Okay, so here are the results:

    01 Hidden 168
    02 Splinter 145
    03 Arrival 141
    04 Reckoning 139
    05 Solitude 127
    06 Vengeance 117
    07 Mortal 115
    08 Lexmas 96
    09 Lockdown 67
    10 Aqua 66
    11 Thirst 61
    12 Exposed 56
    13 Fanatic 44
    14 Tomb 23


    Very interesting! A lot can be deduced from this list, I think. :)

    Really interesting stats, Pat!

    It is actually interesting though Reckoning should be a lower and Mortal should be higher...and Vengeance way lower. Anyways Ill rate them in my order then, downward spiraling from good to dreadful:

    Hidden
    Solitude
    Splinter
    Mortal
    Reckoning
    Arrival
    Lockdown
    Lexmas
    Aqua
    Exposed
    Fanatic
    Vengeance
    Thirst
    Tomb

    And I followed the Agent's method of listing them in the order that Id actually prefer to watch them over in (the eps Id watch over again at the top and the ones I never want to see again at the bottom.)

    After adding Crisis and Brainiac's numbers to the list, Mortal has pulled ahead of Vengeance by two points, and we no longer have a tie between Lockdown and Thirst (the former took the lead over the latter). Hidden is still #1, and WAY out front. It's followed by Reckoning, Splinter, Arrival and Solitude, all of which are separated by no more than five points respectfully. Vengeance and Lexmas mark the halfway points. Episodes below that mark have less than half the amount of points as the corresponding episodes in placement above them.

    Interesting "race" we have here. :D
