    Seems like forever since the last new episode in November. When does this show start up again?

    Hopefully not too long. Unfortunatly, since Boston Public came back from it's hiatus, I havn't felt the need to tune in as much for some reason :/...

    Funny, I was just about to post this exact same topic!
    The last couple of episodes (Ryan & Skinwalker) did not appeal to me at all! In fact, if I remember correctly, I blasted Skinwalker pretty badly after I watched it.
    Here to hoping that the series resumes shortly with a bang instead of a thump. [​IMG]

    According to www.tvguide.com next week's episode is called "Visage" and the synopsis doesn't sound familiar, so it should be a new episode.
    Tonight's episodes is a 2-parter in widescreen (for the very first time!) of last year's season ending cliffhanger and the opener episode of this season.

    On Skinwalker, I had everything figured out as soon as they mentioned that skinwalkers existed. On the upside, they broke the movie cliche that getting thrown through glass doesn't cause serious injuries. I am interested in seeing where they go with the new plotline they introduced.

    I think Smallville has done well with the characters, but a lot of the individual episodes come off as imitations of Buffy, or more frequently, the X-Files. Plus, they seem to have an ongoing problem with plotholes.

    I read that the shapeshifting girl from season 1 comes back in the next episode, and tries to come onto Lana... [​IMG]

    Excellent. The show won an award for being family friendly at the end of its first season. My reaction was that wasn't going to last.

    I would hardly call it family friendly and I hope it never becomes family friendly or loses it's edge. Cripes someone gets killed every show.

    When you compare the bodycount to other shows of its genre, it's quite low. Car destructions, on the other hand...
