Wherein I Reveal New Depths to My Geekiness
I'm not a big fan of Smallville. Really, I'm not much of a DC fan, period. I happened to catch an expisode of Smallville on Sunday, though. You know, when there's absolutely nothing on TV. Anyway, this particular episode featured none other than my <>favorite sarcasm > superhero, Aquaman! The writer's apparently think their viewers are stupid, because they were laying it on pretty thick. He can swim faster than Superman, hears ultrasonic noises that others can't, and even gets made fun of by Lois Lane for his orange and green wardrobe. I had to laugh because it wasn't until after all these references that Jay looked at me and said, "Y'know, I think that's Aquaman."
The cheesiest joke of the entire episode came towards the end:
Aquaman: "We make a pretty good team. We could start the Junior Lifeguards of America or something like that."
Superman: "I don't think I'm ready for the JLA just yet."
I don't know how the actors kept a straight face for that one.
