Episode 22 - 2×01 Vortex

September 13, 2016

We're back! Much like Smallville itself, we've returned from hiatus to discuss the twenty second episode of the series, "Vortex." To kick off our second season coverage, Zach is joined by very special guest Craig Byrne, webmaster of Kryptonsite and K-SiteTV and author of several companion books on the series. Craig tells us his long history covering television dating back to the Lois & Clark days, and we go on SEVERAL tangents throughout our conversation but they're well worth it as Craig is a venerable fountain of knowledge when it comes to the series, and we had a lot of fun talking not only "Vortex" but really all things Smallville. What planned cliffhangers were dropped in "Tempest"? What second season episode was filmed BEFORE "Vortex"? DID Clark fly in the tornado? What alternate castings would we have liked to see on the series? All this and much, much more!

Kryptonsite has always been the hub of Smallville fandom, so if you've never heard of it or just haven't been in a while I highly recommend checking out both it and its sister site KSiteTV which covers all genre television currently on the air!
