    I thought this was interesting in next week's TV Guide:

    Chloe fans are not going to be happy when Carrie Fisher drops in as the brittle Daily Planet honcho who gives their favorite newsie a rude awakening about her future at the paper. Hopefully, the tongue-in-cheek irony of Lana with a vampire sorority girl named Buffy, while ex-Spike James Marsters settles in a Professor Fine, is enough to take away some of the sting.

    Completely agreed. Chloe in the DP with Carrie Fisher, Brainiac and Lex interacting will save this episode. But the vampire/Buffy stuff WILL be hard to take.:down

    Kinda have to agree. There are so many other excellent elements in this episode, they didn't have to toss in a vampire side story. :rolleyes:

    Gah! I'm just hoping it turns out to be better on screen than it looks on paper. I DID enjoy Spell, despite the witch protestations and ridiculous plot, so I'm hanging in there. ;)

    I think its cool they're having a Halloween themed episode, at least the vampire theme is not for no good reason, and Clark in a costume sounds cute...honestly I'm ready for a little levity on SV, I really don't need to be crying every episode, lol

    I agree Melly. And I honestly think that Lex has something to do with these Vampires, as he turns up in the hospital to give Chloe the serum.

    Lana appears to have gained some of Clark's powers, so that should play out in a fun way.

    But as you say its a fun Halloween episode and not every episode needs to be gut wrenching and full of mythology.

    Maybe everyone will wake up naked the next morning and realize it was a kryptonite spiked punch hallucination.[​IMG]

    See, now THAT would be entertaining. LOL

    J/K

    Nah, my biggest beef is the whole vampire thing. I have no problem with a Halloween episode. I just think they could have been a little more creative. Mind you, I know I haven't seen the episode yet, but they're even *advertising* the FOTW's as vampires. Blech. At least episodes like Nocturne and Skinwalkers had horror-based plots without making blatant references to genre staples like werewolves.

    It seems apparent that Thirst's vampire subplot is there to pander to Buffy fans and help spike (pun intended) the episode's ratings. I just hope it works and doesn't backfire on 'em. They used sex to boost the ratings in the fourth season and that didn't go over so well.

    All that said, I'm still looking forward to the ep. Even a bad episode of SV is better than most of the other junk on TV today. :up:

    Nicely said, Melly.
    I like it that they try to mix it up a bit. That's a big part of why I liked Sacred - they got out of SV for once! I guess I just like an occasional change of pace. Both Buffy and XFiles were successful with stepping outside the norm on occasion, and I think SV can do the same.

    Or, it could suck. :D

    (Suck.. get it?)

    I don't know if there's anyone who knows when episodes get repeated but there are such things as VCR's and TiVO's... you might want to invest in one.

    I think you can get a vcr for about $30 at walmart....

    with the roll the writers have been on so far this season, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Honestly, I dont mind when they do the tongue in cheek stuff like naming the vampire "Buffy" or having Aquaman say that he doesnt "travel with an Entourage". Sure it might be a bit cheesey, but it's nice nod to those two shows. I think people are getting way too wound up about this..

    I love nods like that... and the best one I ever saw was Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in Maverick. Now that really had me on the floor laughing my ******* face off.

    I think if its done well, then it is extremely entertaining. And as Hulk said, the writing has been really good so far this season. Some lightheartedness will be welcomed by episode 5.:up:

    Does anyone know why Brainiac has an agenda against Lex? Or is that something we have to find out?

    I just looked at the trailer caps for Thirst that are posted at K-Site.

    Is Chloe dressed as Brittany Spears in that schoolgirl video? LOL.. Cute.

    They also show Lana in costume as a black cat (one of my favorite costumes, btw. :)).. but sadly, no peek at what our Hero is going to be wearing. I'm dying to know.. Something with a cape according to spoilers. I really hope it's :batman: . Hey.. they keep saying they can't have Bruce Wayne on the show, so this would be a clever way to at least squeeze a little in.

    Poor Lana.. Lois gets to prance around in a hot bikini (two actually) and Lana gets to wear fake vampire teeth and make silly vamp faces. :(

    Ok, the trailer sucked (lana as a vampire) Oh brother , :rolleyes:

    So far all I'm looking forward to in this episode is.

    (1) Chloe goes to The Daily Planet and meet's Carrie Fisher

    (2) Clark in a costume

    (3) Brainiac

    (4) More SOB Lex Luthor.

    Other than that I have no intrest in seeing a ridiculous vampire theme with Lana. becoming a vampire. :down :down
