Escape
2 May 2011 | by ColcatronSee all my reviews

Every season has at least one infamous episode that's laughed off by the fans. For season 9, "Escape" is it. DC comics villain The Silver Banshee makes a truly awful appearance here. In all fairness, the way the character was brought into the story, and how she interacted with the characters wasn't that bad at all. The fault for this disaster goes to the producers, for not axing he footage of the Silver Banshee when she's finally revealed in form on screen. The character design looks bad enough to have walked out of some tacky Roger Corman horror film from the 70s. Seriously, SOMEBODY must have looked at the footage on a monitor and thought to go back to the drawing board. The plot doesn't necessarily help matters either. To put it simply, this is a boring story.

The only reason I'm giving this a rating as generous as 6/10 is because there are some genuinely amusing scenes when Clark and Lois awkwardly meet Chloe and Oliver at the couples retreat. I do have to comment that the love story between Chloe and Oliver was very poorly developed and never felt believable until well into season 10. You can't just tack on 2 flirtatious scenes in preceding episodes and expect a relationship to be believable. But believability aside, I have to acknowledge how well this show handles subtle comedy. My favourite scene is the one where Clark and Oliver are awkwardly trying to make small talk at the breakfast table. The actors on this show don't get enough credit for how well they handle comedy. These scenes aren't enough to save the rest of the "Escape" train wreck. Here's one infamous episode that deserves most of the criticism it gets.
