Helen Slater, Marc McClure, Margot Kidder, Linda Carter, etc etc. Knock it off. It's not cute anymore, it's not funny. Alot of times, it hurts the character the actor is portraying. They should have found an actress with actual range and acting ability for Lara, it should have been an emotional rollercoaster of an episode. Same with Linda Carter. And why is Marc McClure going to be on television playing an old Kryptonian, an awesome idea that will probably be a one episode throw away. You don't introduce a character like that for ONE episode played by a bad actor who happened to be in Superman The Movie. Dax-Ur is an awesome idea, but will end up a throw away. It would have been awesome to have a de-powered Kryptonian in season two or three as a reoccuring or main character who befriends Clark. Hell, he could have even been fully powered but choosing to remain in hiding, hoping for a rescue transport that will never come. Not an evil man, but a Kryptonian who hid away from the world. No hidden agenda, just wanted to either be rescued or hopefully die one day, although impossible with powers. This could have served as a parrallel to Clark, seeing the difference this man could have made with his abilities, the good he could have done. Clark wouldn't want to repeat those mistakes. And then Dax-Ur could die sacrificing himself for Clark at some point. So much potential wasted. And why is time being devoted to Supergirl, the JLA, Black Canary, all this one off sh^t while the whole purpose of the show was to be about a young Clark Kent and a young Lex Luthor, and there journey to destiny? Does anyone else feel Clark and Lex's story has ben hurt by all this b.s.? Again, it's not cute anymore, knock it off, with a season eight bound to happen, there is still time to fulfill the shows true potential, which was much greater than waht we have recieved.
