I took me a few days to pin-point that every major problem I had with the episode all came from Donner Worshiping. Chole and the comic book? Donner worship. Lex's mind wipe? Done because of Donner worship. Lois and Clark and that whole "Miss Lane" are-they-even-married thing? Donner worship. (Which I can only appreciate because Tom and Erica seriously played it as if it was just a fetish thing IMO).

Hell, Jonathan Kent only got killed in season five because of Donner worship/trying-to-align-with-Donner. So he got brought back here, with some scenes that worked and some that didn't, because of that mistake that was made years ago.

Al & Miles only ever knew the Donner films when it came to all of this, which accounts for them always pulling things from the movies. But the show, especially in the later Blur years, really should have dropped that stuff and not looked back. Even if I did love the fact that Tom's Clark and Erica's Lois got to have the John Williams Superman/Lois Love Theme played over their final scene together.

Maybe Man of Steel will finally put a kabosh on all the Donner worshiping. Maybe.
