For the show's 200th episode, the writers of Smallville decided to think outside of the box a little bit and try something nobody has ever done before: riff on A Christmas Carol. Clark and Lois go to their high school reunion, and Brainiac shows up to show Clark scenes from his past, present and future. [Slow clap.] Bravo, show. Really, well done.

If I thought we'd be seeing anything that was even vaguely worth seeing, I'd be excited that they pulled James Marsters away from Caprica long enough to dress him up in a green T-shirt and purple leather jacket. (They're the colors of 30th-century Legionnaire Brainiac 5, a heroic copy of the original villain, which seems to be what's going on here.) But since the past involves the death of Jonathan Kent, the present involves Green Arrow being all tortured, and the future involves Clark and Lois bickering and probably some tantalizing tease of Clark in costume, I'd just as soon pass, thanks. Maybe some day they'll have the budget to show us the world of the 30th century, and dress up a few more Legionnaires, but I won't hold my breath.

The 200th episode of Smallville airs tonight at 8/7C on The CW, opposite new eps of Medium and Symbionic Titan. ...Man, I really, really want that purple leather jacket.
