2023-01-2550:131

Join Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum as they break down the countless instances of deceit in this week’s rewatch of Season 2 Episode 3: DUPLICITY … whole lot of lying going on. The guys show love to the performance of Sam Jones III in a pivotal Pete episode and discuss the unique decisions Joe Morton made off script in his sendoff as Dr. Hamilton. Tom talks about what went into Clark ‘stopping a car’ and debates whether or not Lionel was actually blind. Michael talks about the absurdity of Lana snapping over Clark’s ambiguity and how he would have handled learning Clark’s secret. Going to get Sam on later this season… promise! __________________________________________________ 💖 Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/talkville ☎️ Hotline: (213) 538-2883 👕 New Merch: https://shop.talkvillepodcast.com __________________________________________________ Watch or listen to more episodes! 📺 https://talkvillepodcast.com/show __________________________________________________ Follow us online! 📸 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/talkvillepodcast/ 🤣 TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thetalkvillepodcast 📘 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/talkvillepodcast 🐦 Twitter: https://twitter.com/talkvillepod 🌐 Website: https://www.talkvillepodcast.com/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Might be one of those “show episode was ehh but the rewatch was good” type of weeks - this week as Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit Season 2 Episode 2: HEAT. We find out this episode’s idea to be included in the pilot was canned, and maybe for good reason? Tom remembers what it was like portraying Clark’s pubescent discovery of heat vision, Michael questions why every single sultry single got cut from the show, and we all find out why Smallville was so sweaty in this episode.

They pick up on the tornado cliffhanger from last season’s finale and discuss what it was like behind the scenes to shoot something of that magnitude. The guys also talk about what it was like jumping back into their characters after a hiatus, the emotionally powerful choices taken by John Schneider in this episode, and their feelings around Clark putting on his patented red jacket, blue shirt combo.
