“It’s The Walking Dead, Yo!”

“The Walking Dead” started as a comic book series created by “Robert Kirkman”, “Tony Moore” and “Charlie Adlard”. I’m not a real big comic book reader, but I managed to check out a few issues after I started watching the show and I was surprised at how they tried to keep the series true to the original storyline. Kudos to you guys! Awesome job.

“Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan”

I caHeat474n honestly say “Chloe Sullivan” was one of my favorite characters on “Smallville.”  She was adorable, smart, resourceful, tenacious and one of the most loyal friends “Clark Kent” ever had.  Despite the feelings she had for “Clark” and feeling the pain of pining for someone she knew in her heart she would never have,  she was always there for him and later on became his main sidekick.

I wish I had a tenth of “Chloe’s” character.  She had a lot of passion and she 1Chloe-Sullivan-Matrix episodewasn’t afraid to stick to her guns when she felt she was doing the right thing, even if she was being ‘crucified’ for it.  That takes a lot of guts and she had plenty of that, and who can forget the “Matrix” episode, or when they went into the future, she was bad-ass too.

Allison Mack“Allison Mack”, after looking at her blog makes me believe they knew what they were doing when they chose her for that role.   She’s quite a talented writer.  Check it out, not the ‘wall of weird’, but it’s very creative.

“My Issues with Clark Kent’s Girls”

Lana LangOkay, I’m officially annoyed.  I’m sitting here watching the second season of “Smallville” and it’s seriously pissing me off.

I thought when you loved someone, you accept them for who they are, faults and all, but I’m thinking about “Lana Lang” and “Chloe Sullivan”.  not so much “Chloe” as “Lana”.  I think at some point, even before “Chloe” truly found out his secret, she learned to accept “Clark”.  It’s ashamed too, because I think “Chloe” was a better fit for him anyway, so it’s not surprising he ended up with her cousin “Lois Lane”, who was a lot like “Chloe” in manysmallville-chloe ways.

“Lana” on the other hand, she was always blowing him off.  My take, “Clark” may not have always been there when you wanted him to be, but he was always there when you needed him to be.  How many times did “Clark” save “Lana” and “Chloe?”  Is it true, no matter how much good you do for someone, they always focus on the negative?  What’s up with that?

Look, I don’t care how many secrets you have, if you are pulling my ass out of a fire, or saving me from going ‘splat’ from a long fall time and again, I don’t care.  You don’t have to explain anything to me.  I’ll worship the ground you walk on.  I was always told never to sock a gift horse in the mouth.

My apologies to all “Lana Lang” and “Chloe Sullivan” fans.  I’m not saying I didn’t like them, as a matter of fact, I had a lot of respect for “Chloe” and in some ways even “Lana”.  I’m just venting.

“Hero Spotlight: Green Arrow played by Justin Hartley”

Queen_Green ArrowAh, what can we say about “Oliver Queen” a.k.a. “Green Arrow”.  He was a hero, billionaire playboy and tortured soul.  Justin Hartley was perfect, I think.  He’s good looking, charismatic and he has a lot of swag.  I’m a sucker for a guy with swag, he may be poison, but I’ll ingest him gladly, if you know what I mean. (Big fan of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway”)

What did I like about “Oliver Queen?”  He was a playboy with a ‘heart of gold.’  He loved his parents, it’s unfortunate what happened to them and it stuck with “Oliver” for a long time, but we all know how grief can affect people, so we could relate.

He was generous, reliable, sure, he was rich, but he was down to earth too, he generally cared for people.  He wasn’t perfect, but who the hell is, even “Clark Kent” made some bad decisions, but that’s what made them human.Green-Arrow-Justin-Hartley

“Green Arrow” was cool.  He didn’t have any special abilities, but he put his life on the line to save others.  You have to appreciate that, most of us just stand on the sidelines cheering them on, but few have the courage to stand up and fight for what they believe in.

The outfit was cool.  I remember during one of the comic cons, “Justin” mentioned how hot and heavy the suit really was, but he looked freaking great in it.  “Oliver” put a lot of thought and effort into what he was doing, I mean his bow and arrow collection was ‘rad’, I know, that was so totally 80’s, but who cares, and he took care of himself, very important if you’re getting beat up on a regular basis.

Justin Hartley_Hot Justin Hartley_smileAbout “Justin Hartley” himself, he’s hot ladies!  He’s got a great smile and based on his tweets, it sounds like he has a great sense of humor too.  Now I have another actor to watch.

 

I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite “Oliver Queen” scenes.  You’re damn right he’s a hero! Enjoy!
