Oh, Smallville. Remember how you teased us with Darkseid and Lex Luthor's machinations from beyond the grave earlier this season? Well, that's all been swept under the rug. Friday's so-so episode, "Ambush," gave us a clichéd holiday from hell.
To be fair to "Ambush," it did start with perhaps the most pornoriffic Smallville opening in recent memory. It was an excellent counterpart to last week's Red Shoe Diaries-style hijinks. Sex on the swing! In front of all the hens and sorghum!
