Episode 27 - 2×06 Redux

October 19, 2016

This week Zach is again joined by Matt Latham from The Bottle Episode to discuss the twenty seventh episode of Smallville, "Redux." This episode has a unique production history as it was filmed during the first season, after "Tempest," and aired sixth in the second season. This lead to MANY continuity errors that we of course have fun pointing out. But the fun doesn't end there! Despite compelling guest stars, interesting themes, and plot set-ups for future episodes, "Redux" fails to live up to its potential and is generally considered one of Smallville's worst outings. An overcrowded story (at least FOUR simultaneous plot-lines) and one of the most ridiculous freaks of the week of the entire series will do that. We grew a lot older during this episode of Always Hold On To Smallville!

Matt has been reviewing Smallville season-by-season on his website www.bottleepisode.co.uk, covering the first 7 seasons so far.
