The unthinkable is happened at my house for the Wednesday night television viewing: I am watching Lost and taping Smallville. It is usually the other way around. Smallville, about the teenage years of Clark Kent, better known as Superman, is the usual favorite for the 8:00 P.M. block at my house. Lost is taped and watched later. Not tonight though.
Smallville has not been that good as of late. Last week’s witch episode was horrible. This week’s show seems to be better, but Lost is just awesome. This week, Sayid, a former Iraqi Republican Guard, finds the source of the French distress signal, and he doesn’t want to.
Given how good this show is, and how lackluster Smallville has been, Lost gets the nod tonight.
