    But lets get back on topic and please both of you edit you post or put them in the right thread.

    Forgot about Oynx and Mortal, loved both of them. He does have that supernatural/Buffy vibe that I don't think is a good fit for Smallville.

    Without seeing the scripts, it's a little hard to say exactly who my favorite writers on Smallville are. Especially since a good deal of the creative process occurs in group brainstorming sessions where all of the show's writers and creative consultants give their input on the plot of each episode.

    Putting that aside, my two favorite episodes are (without a doubt) "Insurgence" and "Reckoning." Jeph Loeb and Kenneth Biller wrote "Insurgence" and Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders penned "Reckoning." Looking at it as a stand-alone episode, I think "Reckoning" is one of the tightest written episodes of this season. And I know that I'm probably very alone on this opinion.

    I can find some of my favorite episode from each season in Peterson's and Souders' writing credits:

    "Phoenix", "Relic", and "Forsaken" from S3
    "Scare" and "Blank" from S4
    "Hidden", "Exposed", and "Reckoning" from S5

    Like most people here, I absolutely love each season closer and opener--most of which were written by Gough and Millar. So I'd probably have to say that Gough and Millar are on par with Souders and Peterson in my mind.

    Big Tree, do you have the list of which episodes the DPs have worked on?

    I sprta keep track of it casually because I usually mention it in my reviews but not always but it's not on the Supermanhomepage list and TV.com doesn't list it either.

    It'd be nice to have a list.

    The guy who photographed Cyborg I had never heard of before, Les something, and they also had a guest DP for Cyborg.

    No I don't. I could try and put it together, but I'd have to go off the dvd's and live shows, because they don't list those in the episode descriptions.

    Give me a few days and I'll see what I come up with.

    I know some of them but the only place its listed apparently is in the end credits....

    It's annoying for me since if a show is particularly beautifully shot, I like to mention who the dp was.

    It's not just a vibe he was a writer on Buffy and Angel. Ok but not one of my favorites from there either.

    Actually, his middle initial is "J".... saw an image of his year book photo somewhere.

    I can post it later, if you want...

    I think IMDB has it listed as Thomas Patrick James Welling...

    Maybe the "James" is correct (wouldn't that be cute?) but the "Patrick" doesn't appear to be right...

    No, that's muscles fooling with us I think.

    He throws that middle name in at times when referring to Tom. He calls him "Thomas Eugene Welling."

    It was sort of a joke by using his full first name and the middle inital J, since he was the big bad general on set for the week. I don't even know what his middle name is. I was just throwing the J in there like Clark Kent's name. Most times it's for Joseph, but it could be for Jerome. Just having a little fun.

    I don't know what his middle name is (could be Joseph), but it doesn't look like that he has two of them:

    NOTE: I didn't do the squigling over other people's names... I woulda done a better job than that. ;) :D
