MR’s Smallville episode Lexmas has been named number 5 on a list of top 10 most memorable sci-fi and fantasy christmas episodes. This is one of my all time favourite Smallville episodes and remains a fan favourite so its great to see it being recognised on this list
In a dream Lex sees the life he could lead if he walks away from his father and LuthorCorp. It’s surprisingly touching: in this possible future timeline, Lex and Lana have a baby on the way, Clark is still good friends with Lex (and is now sporting some pretty cool specs), and most of all Lex is living life as if a great burden had passed from him. Coincidentally, the last episode of Smallville this year before the holiday involved Clark finding himself in a timeline where he was found and raised by Lionel Luthor, placing himself in the opposite position from Lex here. It’s one of Michael Rosenbaum’s more interesting turns as Lex — he doesn’t have to be angry or duplicitous, and he and his character both seem to revel in the moment.
I have finally finished uploading the Smallville DVD screencaps of the episodes Michael was in so check them out feel free to use for art etc but if you do le me know so I can add it to the site! Credit back to me if you repost any screencaps www.michaelrosenbaumonline.co.uk
