Lana Lang And “The Supervillain’s Nightclub”
This is a scene from season four of “Smallville:”
This is Lana Lang in Paris. That’s a picture of her friend proto-supervillain Lex Luthor as the cover story in Forbes magazine being advertised next to her.
At the end of season three Lana left Smallville and flew to Paris to study art. Lex helped her finance her trip by buying her share of the coffee shop they owned together. This is one of the rare moments in the series where Lana is happy.
This is all pretend of course. It’s actress Kristin Kreuk pretending to be Lana Lang and actor Michael Rosenbaum pretending to be Lex Luthor. And “Lana Lang” and “Lex Luthor” are cartoon characters anyway. It’s pretend pretend.
But these early years of Smallville are my favorite TV show of all time.
This is good stuff.
I’ve known some real cool characters in my life.
The cool characters make the other stuff endurable.
Even the pretend cool characters help.
