Jimmy Nolsen (Spoilers)

Also known as "Folsen," also known as Redd Harring, also known as "too old for DC's taste."

Fucking "Smallville..."


  1. I just watched that last night. I thought Doomsday looked pretty spot on. But WTF!

  2. Smallville is just done for me. Even with Lana gone they just can't stop the sucking.

  3. When they pulled that Jimmy-switch at the end of the episode, I was done. DONE.

  4. I am so very, very thankful I never got involved with his show, for the same reason I never read any of Garth Ennis's superhero-related material. The sheer rageahol imbibed would probably have me levelling cities.

    You want a good rendition of Superman's origins that doesn't waste time and gets to the point in pages rather than years? Read Superman: Birthright. You want a soap opera, Dawson's Creek is readily available on DVD. Mixing the two was the fevered dream of a madman. Did we learn nothing from the Dean Cain/Teri Hatcher debacle? Nothing? Bueller?


  5. how in the hell do you write off a main supporting cast member?!

    sure, we knew Jonathon Kent would be leaving, but Jimmy freakin' Olson?!

  6. Is he dead? Top stuff. That's one less crap character on the telly.

    It well went past the point of suckage and into the point of super... uh, suckage.

    People get paid to write this drivel? Where do I sign up?

    Oh, now I need to see this spectacle.

  10. update* according to the smallville site, it seems that the "jimmy olson" that was killed by Davis/nonDoomsday was in fact not THE jimmy olson, but the older brother of A jimmy olson, who grows up to be THE jimmy olson.

    I saw this spectacle.

    You know, from watching it on-and-off for the past few years, I've noticed something:

    Smallville has become 24.

    Every single story element is recycled.

    Clark learns humans are.... human (I mean, honestly, Superman isn't some naive prick), and thus swears off his friends.
    A Bigger Bad arrives in the final few minutes of the season finale, a causation of the Big Bad being killed.

    The entire (and I mean the ENTIRE) Brainiac arc was just filler.

    You can see already how they are planning on making their final season all about changing the past, which is a horrible way to do a final season. This way, they can say that it was their plan all along to "set things right".
