Okay. Y'all know I'm not one for the Jonathan-love. I recently posted a pretty vitriolic rant about him on the mailing lists [I was looking for my original 'don't do x, son, unless it's to protect your secret' post, but couldn't locate it. I think that one was posted even earlier than this one, but couldn't turn it up. Maybe it was on another mailing list...], and it was echoed (quite closely) by another poster today, but here's an excerpt of a post of mine from April 16, 2003. Still holds quite true today -- this is not something that's been coming to the fore recently. It's something that's been around from the beginning of the show.
I just want to understand, do TPTB realize they're making this Jonathan out to be such a son-of-a-bitch? Do they want us to feel this way about him? (Do they want us to hate Lana? It worked!!) I don't know
! This show is supposed to be about how Clark Kent becomes Superman, and the only sympathetic characters on it are the big future arch villain, and occasionally (she's had her moments, too) a cool chick who isn't even in the comics. And Clark, more, now that we're out of second season...
In this post, I'm not sure which episode in specific I was discussing, and can't find the message I was responding to. I do notice, however, that my attitude has NOT changed at all...( Old post about how Bo-Jo bugs me )
